Suspension is a DW split pivot.This is a misconception. I was concerned about the tire clearance on the Devinci myself. Yes, they show it with small tires but there is room for bigger. Maybe not 2.4s on P35 rims but I would have no problem with my Cedric Gracia 2.25s on Flows.
I really liked the Devinci I rode at Outerbike. I would have liked it better with beefier wheels and bigger tires, though.
Post up pics and a ride report, I am very interested.basically committed to buying one today (by selling my current geared race sled).
the planned build, intended for endurance/marathon racing:
atlas frame (upgrade to rp23 w/kashima)
sid world cup xx fork 15mm
industry nine xc hubs/spokes laced to crest front, arch ex rear
xtr 3x10, xtr 11/36, xtr shifters
xtr brakes, race, with ice tech rotors
bontrager xxx stem
niner carbon bars (cut to 690mm)
ritchey superlogic carbon post (400mm)
xtr race pedals
bontrager rxl ti saddle
racing ralph evo tubless 2.4 front, ikon 2.2 rear
this is basically the build of last year's race bike, save for xx brakes on a superfly 100 with an f29; iam thinking it will come in just under 25lbs, a touch more than the fly but trusting it will ride (technical stuff, in particular), way better. i will post pictures once the frame comes in and the build is complete. psyched!
and what's the widest tire you can run on the back?Does anyone have a ride report on the Atlas? I can't find a single review where someone has actually ridden the bike and talks about the ride in any detail. I'm super curious about this bike, but just want some feedback.
