Isn't a 14 inch BB height more or less normal for all mountain bikes? Okay, some have a lower BB, but only by a few mm (the BB is a few mm under the wheelbase, axle-to-axle), while some are higher still (Nicolai Helius AM). I figure that the BB is on the axle line here, since the rims have a ~13 inch radius, which gets bumped up by the adition of a tyre.

Please note that there is more that goes into changing this frame into a 29"er and keeping the geo the same then is let on in this article. From how I understand it, the idea of it being a 26" or a 29" bike is still in development. My apologies to everyone.

I would also like to see a slightly lower bb. Do the 29er dropouts compensate for bb height? Does the bb height go to over 15" when 29" wheels are installed?

I Wanted a killswitch but this thing looks like a well thought out bike love that headtube emblem with the crossed pistols.

7 lbs for the frame and the air shock is less then a 1/2 pound?, and a coil shock is less then a pound?? where do you get these unbelievably light shocks?

14"bb and then throw on 29" wheels so 15"+ hummm, no thanks??? Looks good as 26er.

130-ish mm travel?

how do you put a 29er fork on and not change the geometry?

And it could use a direct mount front derailleur...
