can someone enlighten me as to why this frame is so good?
29 inch wheels are what all the cool kids are riding these days :D

But seriously, its a strong cheap frame that rides like a dream. It can be set up geared or SS. Rigid or with a fork, Disc or V brakes. Have a look on the 29er forum for more info or ask me here.

Just a few questions if you don't mind...

- Whats the use of having 29 inch wheels?
- What's the availability of parts like?
- Does anyone in Sydney sell complete 29er bikes?

Have a look at the FAQ thread here http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?t=117170

it should answer all your questions about the advantages and disadvantages of the 29er.

For me they carry speed better, roll over rocks and root easier, have better traction, corner faster, handle sand and mud way better than a 26er.

The only parts that are different are fork, rims and tires. There is a growing selection of these however.

Not sure about shops selling complete 29ers. At the bike show last month in Sydney the Gary Fisher booth had the Rig(SS) and other hardtail 29ers but no FS bikes.
