Default 29er frame sizing


Take a looksy he http://tinyurl.com/3tqny
It says, "also available as supercaliber 29 frame." Maybe they were
selling it as a frameset? I dunno.
As for there being just one 29er frame, I think thats true as far as
straight mountain bikes go. The Gary Fisher Rig is made out of a
cheaper alloy, I believe, but the geometry is the same across the
board. The hybrid 29ers have a different shaped frame than do the
mountain bikes, though. Then there's the sugar bikes, but that goes
without saying.

BTW Tom, you said you rode a Supercaliber for awhile. Fisher offered
the supercaliber frame with the xcaliber components in 03 and 04; for
05 they seem to have stopped offering the supercal frame, but I was
just curious: what is the difference between an x-caliber frame and a
supercaliber frame? I looked around on the dealer site and did a web
search for it, but couldnt find the difference between the two
anywhere.


_ I don't think there is any. Or at least I couldn't find any
anywhere either. I'm just guessing, but everything I've read
suggests to me that they just make one 29'er hardtail frame.
Although some have disk brake mounts and some don't.
