Biggest complain about 29ers have been weight but now it’s getting closer to the older 26″. A 26″ full suspension that where used in races was Cannondale Scalpel, I had one at 7,98kg:
Eliflap who built the role model built this one at just 7,59kg:
Now there is riders using the new 29er Scalpel, Scott spark BMC fs… but no other bike has been as successful as Specialized Epic.
So here we have a really light Specialized Epic World Cup 2015:
8,5kg with paint 😉 but without bottle cage.
When are we getting 29er full suspensionbikes under 8kg?
