Mountain Cycle’s New 29er – Twentynineandthirteen

Mountain Cycle is back…well…they actually never left, they’ve been here for years. At the Sea Otter Classic, we covered them in this article: Mountain Cycle – Don’t Call It a Comeback. They showed several new models then including new DH rig and a prototype of a forth coming 29er: http://seaotter.mtbr.com/2011/04/15/mountain-cycle-29er-prototype/

At Interbike this year, the 29er was much closer to production. It is called the “Twentynineandthirteen”. What is the thirteen four? Well, it relates to the element number on the periodical chart for the frame material.

Gerard (General Manager of Mountain Cycle) didn’t want to be on camera so I took a few photos and some notes. Highlights so far include:

-new cable guide positions
-shaped tubing
-horizontal sliding with vertical dropouts (swappable for SS or geared, belt or chain)
-Mountain Cycle proprietary production cranks
-revised chainstays (increased tire clearance)
-final production version will get a tapered head tube)

MSRP is currently set at $1000.00 US for the frame, Mountain Cycle cranks and angleset. Availability will be early 2012 (but I saw Gerard crossing his fingers when he said this.)
