Heard some rumours about a change in spec for the 2011 Altitude 29er and maybe a frame only option too. Apart from the obvious 10 speed, what info is out there?
2011 Altitude 29 SEsimenf said:No info at all?
Just hoping that they get some better (lighter) hubs and maybe other cranks (XT?) along with the obvious 10 speed gearing set up. Would not hurt to drop some weight. Sure they are able to do this with all the experience and input they've gotten after the launch. The fork surely must be tapered too. Ardent 2.4's sure would be a nice OEM-tyre for this bike.
Hope to see some updates on their website soon.
Bummer! Who would have guessed that anodized black with a few small yellow accents would be so polarizing?de lars cuevas said:After 2 beautifully painted Elements (2004 '70, 2007 Tribal) I was considering a 2011 Altitude 29er SE ...
But please count me out. The colors seem to be getting worse by the year! It's a shame, really

You really need to see this one in person.... This bike looks ANYTHING but cheap... the picture I posted does not do it justice. As for the geometry, that's your call as to what works for your body.de lars cuevas said:"SE" had me hoping for something special like the '10 Vertex SE or the '10 Element SE.
No offence, but to me it's boring black, and the yellow accents make it look kind of cheap.
It's not even remotely close to the awesome paintjobs of the past. And no, i'm not going to say the M word.
But to be honest, it's not just that. It's also the huge gap between L and XL. For my saddle height (around 860mm with 180mm cranks), L is way to small. But a 650mm top tube on the XL...
The specs look okay though. Any changes on the wheels?
It's even worse Eric, nowadays it's just the two of us.eric said:Going of on a tangent here but...
Are we on MTBR the only ones who whine incessantly about this? (I'm just curious...)
