Prototype KHS 29" DH Bike
The Mob 'n' Mojave race takes place this weekend at Bootleg Canyon, Nevada, and KHS rider Kevin Aiello has been seen taking laps aboard a 29" DH bike. KHS was already one of the first companies to have their racers on 27.5" wheeled DH bikes
, and now it seems as if they've taken things a step further.
The bike looks to use the same 'Neutral Link' suspension design as the 27.5" version we've seen before, a dual link design that compresses the shock from both the top and bottom. A Manitou Dorado allows for enough clearance to run 29" wheels, and Maxxis Minion tires, which are now available in a 2.5" width, provide enough grip to be DH bike worthy. Will this big wheeled rig give Aiello the edge over his competitors? Stay tuned for race results and coverage from the Mob 'n' Mojave.View larger image.
