Thunder 29 Comp
– Hardtail 29"
The New Thunder 29’s have a carefully designed Breezer D’Fusion Hydroformed Aluminum frame, which delivers a ride quality that resembles Joe’s famed 26” designs.
For 2012, Joe has refined and perfected his mountain bikes to a point of
unparalleled speed and enjoyment. The New Thunder 29 frames feature
advanced construction techniques in hydroformed aluminum, including
D’Fusion Asymmetrical Chainstays and a BB92 Press-Fit Bottom Bracket for
improved performance and tire clearance. This is not your ordinary
aluminum 29” hardtail. It’s the epitome of evolution.
mountain bike enthusiasts know something of the Breezer’s illustrious
history. Some might expect pure tradition from Joe, but mountain bikes
have come a long way since 1977, and Joe’s focus is not on tradition. He
likes things to work. And he spends a lot of time analyzing how and why
things work. When a rider gets on a bike, it’s performance that counts.
Performance comes from the integration of many things: high standards,
the painstaking workmanship of frame builders, carefully chosen parts
and Joe’s rigorous, thoughtful approach to design. From his unmatched 34
years of knowledge and experience gained as a cyclist, framebuilder,
racer and designer, he distills simplicity.
