[b] :P Ok,I am gonna' buy custom 29er Gunner. it will be that color of the month ...orangesh and flashy. I want a chainstay clearance inside to inside of 70mm were the tire will be. That should take care of fat rims with fat tires during the winter.I will have a rigid fork during the winter and a susp. fork during the summer.My biggest concern is standover. I am only 5'7.5" tall.32" inseam.Also,will Gunner build me a custom ridged fork fo the winter? Disc tabs,no cant bosses and susp. corrected to match my summer fork. I hope they can. Richard suggested some of Gunners hair in the clear coat. Splended idea! But where? TT.DT.Seat tube?

G Cap,
Gunner Hair is when Richard S. captures some of Gunners(shop dog) hair(sissors) and carefully lays it under the clear coat of your paint job. Brilliant idea!

GL

Hey Leonard!

We are working on finalizing the geo's as we speak. We'll have a better idea of standover shortly and talk soon.

As for the fork. Vicious says they will have a suspension-corrected rigid fork by May.

We could make the Gunnar hair an option...but we really try to keep it out! :wink:

Hello all,
My 29er Gunnar numbers are close. It is taking a little time because I have a freak body...5'7.5" w/ a 32" inseam. Geo is a little tricky. I am just about settled on a 70.5 head,74seat,23.3TT,60mm BBdrop,450(for the inside to inside stay clearance) on the chainstays(I think) 16.5"seat tube and a 90degree 105mm stem matched to a 468mm 43rake fork. All of that should give me the standover I need and the handling I want for the winter(rigid fork) and summer(Reba 29er). Still going with the metalic orange paint.Anyone out ther have a opion on 29ers for small folks?

Here is a picture of a small IF 29" bike. Also check out first Gunnar EBB SS model made. You can get 3 Gunnar's for the price of an IF! :twisted:
