Recommended Posts

this was spotted on the spruit this morning!

 

it is still very hush hush, and i nearly got klapped taking the photo, but managed to snap one pic before the guys from specialized intervened.

i followed it up with a friend of mine who who works for specialized and he confirmed that they are testing a new 37.2 inch mountainbike, which apparently will make its debut on the next cape epic, and is set to take the world by storm, not only totally revolutionising the mountainbiking world, but the rest of the world too.

 

too bad for all the posers who recently rushed out and bought 29ers after being convinced by calous salesmen to become part of the passing fad.

 

29ers are out, 37ers are in!

Yeah? That's nothing - here's me coming back from the Spruit this morning on my new creation (tho' it does remind me of an older idea ;-))

Shite! I have ordered a 2012 Scalpel 29er - now means I will have to sell it at like 50% off, cos I have to have the latest "thing" to match my white bibs...

It looks like one of those "angled" trick shots to me.

 

I reckon they put Andrew Mclean on a 26er and rigged the shot...

That is so fake, the front tyre is already touching the frame and has like 50mm travel more on the fork.

BAD photoshop attempt...

I dunno, looks pretty real to me... anyway, it's on the web and the Hub, must be real.

I hope you're joking,

This is def a photoshop attempt, the tyres resolution is worse than the rest of the photo because they've been enlarged and then put there.

 

It does, however look good until one starts to scrutinize.

You had to scrutinize?

 

I suggest you upgrade to 23 inch screen and some glasses. :blink:

Haha, no, not scrutinize, but at the 1st glance while it does seem ridiculous it does look maybe possible.

My screens are 21.7 and 13 inches :eek: I can see fine thanks :clap:

I think it's poor old Burry badly photoshopped.

 

The SpecialIzed engineers would never run a fork at that angle :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

What a stupid picture.
