Is there really that much flex in the frame?

Well.. it's quite simple.... just think about an AMP which exploits the advantages of Ti, renouncing to the oh-so-flexy hinges of the Amplifier. Short rear travel on a 29er keeps things simple and performing.

Very light, too... it will be built with a heap of White industries stuff, dressed with ZTR rims and XX gears. German A forks.
