    Just got this on the daily planet x email. Any updates for the aluminium version of the Scandal?

    —————————————-

    Our Bootzipper project is nearly ready to launch.

    Final tweaks on graphics.

    They will come in 650B and 29in versions.

    650B model takes our gravel wheelsets and so is 12×142 rear, 100×12 front, rigid only, 405mm fork length, non boost drivetrain.

    29er is 148×12 rear, 110x15mm front, 440mm fork, boost drivetrain.

    Both have post mount frames and forks and 44mm head tubes.

    Are you asking me? I’m not sure anyone else knows anything.

    Oh right.
    No update really.

    It’s got a gusset under the downtube and some new welding as it failed to meet my “exceed en14766 by x” standard.

    Will be finishing in a month or so.

    You need a better camera, that picture is all blurry.

    It’s okay I’m running it through a filtering algorithm, that should do it.

    They’re not bike shoes btw. Though I think Doddy from GMBN thought they were. Though that gave me and idea that I might do bike shoes too.

    Holes. Shoes need lots of holes.

    If you’re doing shoes now @brant, then I’d buy a truck load of some minimalist ones like Merrell Vapour Glove 4 3D, but with soles that last longer than a couple of months…

    I’ve been running in Vapour Gloves for a couple of years now and these are definitely descended from them. In terms of wear, we’ll see what we can do – pricepoint is certainly going to be WELL under Merrell, so I’d hope we can address £/mile in that way at least!

    Without Graphene (which I can’t get), it’s a balance of grip vs wear on minimal soles in some ways. I found the 5000 Mile soles on Xero Shoes like bloody ice skates frankly.

    I’m I getting the wrong end of the stick, or is the new 29er ‘Bootzipper’ actually the new Inbred 29er? Judging by the pictures it is…either way the raw version looks grand and I want one.

    Steel rigid 29er aka Bootzipper29 aka new Inbred29 Bootzipper.

    440 fork. No suspension. Non. No no no.

    Someone will though.

    Excellent, it sounds right up my street. Are you releasing a rigid fork for it at the same time, and will it be a frame + fork set? Will the fork have bikepacking barnacles on 🙂

    … Inbred29 Bootzipper.

    So the Big Dog is a different frame?

    Is it a steel TD-1 and will it be awesome with Geoff bars?

    It will be. Or these.

    That’s not the stock fork btw – that’s an old inbred 440mm fork.

    Great news, thanks Brant 🙂

    Sorry Brant, I feel like I’m badgering you and should just wait and see, but…..in theory, how would the Twentyninbrootzipped fork play with a 29 x 3″? Enquiring minds want to know.

    I think it might. I’ll check. It wasn’t a required spec as far as I remember but maybe I checked.

    What dimensions are you looking for?

    I suppose just if there’s enough room to clear a 29×3 under the fork crown. It’s not a deal-breaker, but I’m wondering whether to buy a new tyre in that size or not before it’s released!

    I just wanted to say, I am one of those people, who are sorry for selling Scandal V2 in brushed aluminium (factory pre-scratched, to prevent any further scratches) 🙂 Waiting impatiently for new one.

    I just wanted to boast that I was one of the lucky ones that bought a 2nd hand frame from here. (was it yours? 16″ and with a crank bros headset)..
    Flippin ace it is, espcially in brushed alu.:

    It’ll likely be OK, this is a 29plus Chronicle I had in an old 26″ Salsa Cromoto fork (445 axle to crown and plenty of space at the top)

    /\/\/\ well done, that man!

    Am gutted. Was really hoping the Bootzipper 29 would accept a full transplant of my drivetrain and wheels, but full boost spec rules me out.

    It’s nearly August and no-one has badgered Brant for almost a month.

    update on the Scandal delivery date please?

    My filtering algorithm has finished, what looked like a pair of shoes is actually pure grot 🤪 Shame on you Brant.
