Stainless steel is an incredibly unusual material to make a 29" mountain bike with. Not because it doesn't turn out a phenomenal frame, because it does. No. The reason why you never see a stainless 29er is because stainless steel is a real bitch to work with and nobody made a good tubeset for one... until now. We worked with the KVA stainless company for over nine months to create tubes with the right curves and clearance to handle 29" wheels and forks with lots of travel. The result is a frame that's perfect for those long days out on the trails. But don't buy it for the lively feel, buy it because it's the sexiest, rarest off-road rig on the planet.
