Of the current crop of 29ers which are the ones more suited for steeper, techier descents?
Obviously the 26er market is quite well defined in terms of trail, xc, AM etc but there doesn’t seem to be as much emphasis placed on differentiating the types of 29er yet.Posted 8 years ago
Intense do a 28er tracer.Posted 8 years ago
The kona honzo is nice looking, canfield nimble 9 or yelli, that 2 souls one forget the namePosted 8 years ago
Nicolai do a ac 29er and if you ask the nicely the will do a helius am 29er. the trouble is the lack of front suspension forks.Posted 8 years ago
been trying to build/source a bike of this nature for 5 or so years.Posted 8 years ago
got pretty near with a chumba hx2 frame and some 140mm white bros forks.
sold the forks and bought a ventana el capitan, which if mated with the 140mm forks, would have made such a bike………..doh 😀
Turner sultan is 125mm travel, with some fox 34 floats fitted it would be lush.Posted 8 years ago
When the price of my arse hits 4k I’m having one……..
What about the Bandit 29’er?Posted 8 years ago
i would love a niner wfo, with some of those new fox 34 talas.Posted 8 years ago
would have to remortgage i reckon tho….. 😀
That WFO looks like you could just plough down anything!
Tbh I meant to say hardtails but now I’m quite taken with some of the full sussers. Having said that I’ve ridden the camber 29er and it’s a fantastic bike.Posted 8 years ago
this was bloomin epic for hooning down big rocky things generally being a trail yobbo onPosted 8 years ago
the trouble is the lack of front suspension forks.
Marzocchi 44 Micro Ti 29’s are your friend, I have a pair poised for a 140mm buildPosted 8 years ago

Waits impatiently to see RRP for Meta 29er
Tasty looking 2souls above!Posted 8 years ago
Unfortunately it’s not mine!
It’s a 2Souls Quarterhorse.
Their website shows everything but their bloody products.
That is very, very nice though…Posted 8 years ago
There is a products button on the top right of the site once you enter Ivan. From there you can get the full geometry spec, photos, etc. They only do 2 frames though by the looks of it.Posted 8 years ago
Hmmm, not on my phone there isn’t – I’ll have a look later on the laptop. Cheers.Posted 8 years ago
mine was something from the twisted mind of that Brant fella, mutated into somethin more silly by mePosted 8 years ago
No mention of Tallboy?
Posted 8 years ago
I like the look of that Quarterhorse. I assume they’re ridiculously priced?Posted 8 years ago
Niner WFO or RIP9.Posted 8 years ago
Here’s my RIP9. It lurves descending. I would give my left arm for a WFO.
Why would you want to ride tech on a hybrid?Posted 8 years ago
Posted 8 years ago
Just been on the 2Souls website and can now see the products. Those are 2 very nice bikes it has to be said.
I’ve ridden the carbon and alloy Tallboys on a few occasions and whilst they’re very, very nice they seem a bit to racey for me.Posted 8 years ago
2souls is 900 eurosPosted 8 years ago
Why would you want to ride tech on a hybrid?
to prove that nancy boys who can only just manage it on 6″ full bouncer ikkle wheel bike in full stormtrooper outfit a la MBUK really are rubbish and have no radsic skillz regardless of how gnar they think they are 😆Posted 8 years ago
tazzy, high 5 brother……………………… 😆 8) 8)Posted 8 years ago
*gives ton a big hug back*Posted 8 years ago
I haven’t ridden one but the geo of the Tallboy seems better suited to race applications rather than steeper techy descents that the OP was asking about.Posted 8 years ago
Hardtails – Mythic (Banshee) Paradox with a 120mm fork. Although that 2Souls looks gorgeous 😯
Full Susser – Mythic (Banshee) Prime with a set of 29er Rev’s attached to the front!!!
Cheers for the idea re the Ventana Ton *runs off to source some non tapered 140mm 29er forks along with a moon on a stick* 😉 😯 😆Posted 8 years ago
Yelli Screamy without a doubt .. 😉Posted 8 years ago
This accounts for itself pretty damn well, its only running 120mm Rebas but never found it needing more. Found some mega steep rocky stuff today when I was exploring, literally had a river running down it and had total confidence in the bike. 🙂

Really?!?!?! Didn’t know they had that much stand over 😯Posted 8 years ago
Thought you might spot that Ton 😉Posted 8 years ago
Those commenting on the Tallboy, did you ride it with 120 or 100m forks?
I’ve ridden one with 120mm 15QR taper fork, 50mm stem, 700 bars and a Reverb post – bonkers fun!Posted 8 years ago
