We alluded to the fact we’re developing a carbon version of The Brigante a while ago, in a few threads, so we think it’s about time she showed her face.
The Brigante.CRB, the carbon long-travel 29er.
The Brigante.CRB will be based around 120mm of travel, but be will be capable of running 140mm forks should the need arise to goon around.
The Specs look like this:
BB92 with ISCG05
142 x 12 rear dropouts
31.6 seat post
Semi integrated tapered 44 to 56 heatube
Internal cable routing (gears)
Direct mount front mech
The Geometry will be this*:
Head: 68 degrees
Seat: 73 degrees
Effective top tube: 595mm – 23.5″
Chainstay: 428 – 16.8″
Wheelbase: 1130 – 44.4
BB height: 340 – 12.6″
Headtube: 105 – 4.13″
(*120mm fork, size medium)
The Price will be an austerity measure busting £899…
