Storck’s new Rebel Nine is their first 29er, and it’ll be ready in July or August as a frame only. Price is TBD. Their rep said they spent a lot of time on the geometry because they wanted to make it handle like their 26″ bikes. Check out weights and features after the break…
Built up with XTR 2×10, Crank Bros wheels and pedals, Schwalbe tires and a Fox fork (plus water bottle and cage), it tips the scales at just a hair over 23lbs.
Rear brake is inside the frame to help protect it during a wreck.
Direct mount front derailleur lets the rear wheel tuck up closer to the seat tube.
