Was very interested in the Hummingbird but, after emailing Sam back in March, found it was going to be best suited to 80mm to 100mm suspension and I was hoping for 100 to 130 but having just checked the website, its now stating 100 to 120. Might just be the photos on the Singular site but the head angle looks steep though.
Bizarrely, last week I bet my wife a Hummingbird frameset if a house similar to the one we'd just missed out on came up before our house sold…our house just went under offer and no similar houses have come up 😀Posted 8 years agobent_udderMember
The local shop to me (Head for the Hills in Dorking) has one – it's the owner's personal ride, and was the one tested by STW. A very nice bike – if I'd not bought a Genesis Io frame a couple of weeks before I saw the prototype, I would have got one.
The good (or bad) thing about it is that you can use it rigid as a 69er, or put 26" wheel suspension forks on it for a 'normal' ride – a really nice option, as far as I'm concerned.
Welds look tidy, and it has a look of 'rightness' to it, IMHO. run gears of not, rigid or not, 69er or not – there's not much to dislike in the idea. Also the dark green colour matches one of the custom Magura fork colours.Posted 8 years ago
