I have a Titus, Racer-X 29er with a WB .8. Thats 3" travel in the rear, and 80mm in the front. That 80mm is also the shortest axle to crown (483mm). Combine that with the 4" head tube and I can get my bars below my saddle about 1-1/2" ( I'd like 2" ). Yep I'm 5'-9". I was thinking about the idea of getting another bike with more travel for that Cadilac ride. The Titus is great ride and wouldn't get rid of it, but for just going off the beaten path (Now I'm getting spoiled. I had a 26 hardtail, now 29"FS with 3" trav, now I'm wanting a 29" with 5" trav). I guess my question is will I be able to build it to fit me since I ride the smallest frame with the small fork . . . Mmmm OK probably not, but I was just wondering how too big it would be.
