i have been tinkering with this for a while..
not fully finished yet.

a bit of a mix of old and new.

forks are new and not all that but im working on a more retro fork that i can still use with the bigger wheels...

not that many 26" wheel bikes from the 90´s that can be used with 29er wheels.

The Bianchi Project series were designed around 700c wheels. More 'adventure hybrids' or some strange name, which was somewhere between a hybrid, a CX and an XC bike.

Totally want one, though.

yes trying to work on that.
i have a shorter rear shock which drops the BB hight but of curse that changes the head angle.
if i can get the front end a bit lower i will run the other shock.
lower BB should make it feel a little more stable
