T4 Rigid 29er

Modern mountain bikes have come on a long way since the 90s, but how much of it is down to suspension, and how much to all the other little (and big) changes? I really wanted to see what all the big wheeled fuss was about so I designed a frame with all the benefits of current geometry - slack head angle, long top tube for wide bars and a short stem - but without any suspension at all. Oh, and it has a Rohloff hub gear. It's worth it! This machine flies; I've raced it in xc events and taken it down the roughest Lakes descents and it handles it all: no fuss.
