Holy BB height Batman!
I wonder if that was a mistake? They kept their same bb height relative-to-axles from the Firemans 26", but then put a taller fork on it, which raised the bb?

Not saying a zero bb drop (or even bb rise) is bad though. It would definitely make the bike handle more like a bmx cruiser and less like a 29'er mtb.

Maybe they corrected that in the last 8 years:thumbsup:

The current website says 13.5" bb.

I was Googling 29er with BMX bars for another discussion thread. The Perfect Bike? - Page 9 - Pinkbike Forum--that's how I came across this old thread. I personally like adding to knowledge on existing threads rated than creating new ones. The OP could have quit riding--I don't care!
