Raleigh marketing wonk Brain Fornes got me some glamor shots of the new XXIX Pro and the single speed XXIX for us all to enjoy. The two bikes are steel framed rigs. The XXIX Pro being 853 Reynolds and the XXIX being a double butted 4130 CroMo tube set. New colors and some cool details are here, so without further rambling from me, here are some images………
Now here we have a big change. Split shell eccentric bottom bracket with replaceable Nylock nuts. This should keep the XXIX single speed-able for years to come! (Note: The production bike will have the EBB reversed from this pre-production sample.)
That’s all folks! Hopefully we’ll be able to test ride the XXIX Pro at Interbike and bring you more complete 2010 Raleigh 29″er news soon.
