Bikemagic's month of 29ers: BMC SpeedFox SF29

BMC SpeedFox SF29

BMC’s  brand new SpeedFox SF29, which enters the market in 2012, is a stunning first stab at producing a 29er.

What makes it special?

A triple butted and hydroformed 6000 alloy frame uses BMC’s signature integrated skeleton concept that reinforces the top/seat tube junction, a huge downtube and short 100mm tapered head tube. Geometry has been tweaked for the bigger wheels with a 70º head angle and 73º seat, and short 430mm chainstays.

On tap is 100mm of travel from the Fox RP2 shock driven by BMC’s Advanced Pivot System (APS) suspension platform, its own dual-link suspension design. It features two short linkages that join the two halves of the frame and keep it laterally very stiff. More details here.
