I know someone who literally ran into a guy riding this on a trail in Lincoln, Nebraska. It's gonna be a good one.
actually he was riding the 26 inch bike when we hit... and i've only ever seen clarke on the 29-inch bike. i've never actually seen joel on a 29er. that said, i have to hand it to the guys at tomac. the bike looks tight.

and yes, it is an ebb. bb30... you guys are funny.

isn't that what people want?
It is good by me. Looks like whoever builds the Tomacs no longer uses those trick looking/stiff rear ends though. I'm sure it'll be a quality offering.

There was an article a couple months back, either in Bike or Dirt Rag, on how the new Tomac company works. Basically a three person operation, four if you count Johnny T.

The guy at the center of the whole deal basically gave up his career, as did his wife, for Tomac bikes and operate the whole thing out of their house. During production it stated he flew his whole family, wife and kid, to Taiwan and inspected each frame by hand to make sure it passed his quality check, The third guy stays back on the homefront and keeps things going smooth. And Johnny T, rides and offers design suggestions.

Good read if you are able to get your hands on it. I wish them the

Yeeeep. This is from Lincoln, NE. My old shop helps Tomac with their frame deliveries. GT, who's your buddy in Lincoln? Do you know who is riding it?
Jeremy, I was who GT was referencing...
