Most interesting 29er I've seen...

A new offering from Diamondback makes for an interesting take on the 29er.  Looks pretty cool.

Agreed.  Seems like the gravity fueled 29er is going to see lots of growth/development in the near future.

That DB interesting.  The frame size/geometry make the wheels look huge too.

its taken long enough for slack short wheel base 29ers to hit the market... i am glad i waited insted of going custom...
although i wont be waiting for this....2013 is a long time away and 66* would be way to slack for florida riding...

that trek isent that funky looking.. i would ride it if it wasent a tank.

That Trek isn't that funky looking.. I would ride it if it wasn't a tank.

It's bombproof like a tank but it's lighter than you may think. Bone Stock 19" frame is 29 lbs. Mine with SS conversion is about 25-26lbs but it's so balanced it feels like low 20's even though it's not. I'm in LOVE with it. It rides so nice and it's very nimble and flickable for a big bike. To me it feels like an adult sized BMX.

Most bikes feel a bit off to me until I put on my special parts. I put on a shorter stem and my own handlebars and seat and it fits like a glove to me now.
