Wow, nice looking bike. Is that fork a 29'er version? It looks like it's got way more stanchion than clearance between tire and crown.....

I was thinking the same thing!

Regardless, that is a SWEET looking ride! Now if someone would just start making freeride niner rims and 29x2.5" tires, I would consider one!

K (shudders to think how much a 29x2.5" DH tire would weigh...)

The fork is the Mav SC32

No brace, so there's plenty of clearance. That fork complements the bike well. 4.5 inches of travel (roughly).

Your could get a 2.5 in that fork. The rear has a ton of clearance as well, Much more than any other 29er I've seen.

If you haven't ridden a 29" bike, the things you'd be able to clear with a 29" FR rig would be ridiculous, but so would the weight.
