Fresh from the rumor mill and out into reality, Airborne Bicycles has unleashed one of their newest models with this sneak peak:
The HobGoblin is their first foray into the world of dual suspension 29ers, and what a way to lose their 29er dually virginity! Aluminum frame, tapered headtube, pressfit GXP bottom bracket, SRAM X7 components in 2×10 mode, and Rockshox lending the cush, all for around $1700. There will also be an option for another, more expensive model which will include a 15mm Maxle and SRAM XO components. If you want to start from scratch, the frame will be available for purchase as well. Damn.
Maybe its because they are based out of Ohio and I like to show state loyalty, or maybe it’s because they pump out great products at more than reasonable prices, but I think Airborne is doing something right. Supposedly there are a few more models to come out this year, I feel that it is going to be hard to top the HobGoblin.
Just keep spinning…
