Overall Rating:5
Submitted by Nikolas Ojala a Weekend Warrior from Tampere, Finland

Date Reviewed: July 20, 1999

Strengths:    
+ Light (frame only about 2500 grams)
+ Incredibly stiff
+ Very nice welds
+ Reliable
+ Not much tendency to bouncing
+ The shock works ok


Weaknesses:    
- Price
- Colour (titanium grey)


Bottom Line:   
I can identify good quality welded joints when I see them. The frame is very stiff and also light. The active single pivot suspension with two sealed ball bearings certainly lasts longer than a common slide bearing system. However there are two skid bearings in this frame: both ends of the rear shock. The colour is ... hmm kind of stealthy but I guess it could be painted or polished. When I did the test drive, I did not have the relevant shoes. Maybe I should have installed temporary clipless pedals then. I had no problems with steering this bike. It felt simply neutral, or should I say facile. If I'm going to buy this frame, I will get it exactly the size I want, however I was told that it takes some time. Maybe I should save some money for this bike. It really is expensive. But anyway I give five chilis for the quality. I think the frame really earns them all, although the price is high. Enough said.

Jeronimo C-29 (Titanium FS)

I'm a bit scared of what are you going to say, but here we go... This is our first model with 29'' wheels and it's not the tipical XC bike, we went a bit crazy and designed a long travel (130-150) frame with a slack headtube (68º with a 535 Fork), low BB (13.4''), etc... The geometry and the syst ... Read More »
