We’re big believers in 29ers for racing, thanks to their roll-over-everything, trail-taming momentum. Last year’s Dakota D29 bikes were incredible machines, a smart application of cutting-edge carbon technology with big hoops. And we upped the ante for 2012.
We broke the molds for our big-wheel Team and Pro again (!), retooling to modify our BB30 shells to take advantage of the benefits of the PressFit 30 BB system – simple installation, improved bearing-to-shell interface, greater bearing durability and the pedaling power of that 30mm spindle. Our tapered head tube significantly stiffens the control center, and that pays dividends with 29-inch rolling stock, letting you muscle out of ruts and really improving all-around control authority.
