Bigger wheels have a place on UK trails and the Pinnacle Ramin 1 2013 Mountain Bike puts many other 29er designs firmly in their place too. This is a 29er from people who love the handling of a good trail bike rather than head-down XC race bikes. We've given the Ramin its own ride character, a fun, capable feel that gets the most out of the smoother-rolling, increased traction benefits of bigger wheels. A slacker than average head angle balanced with the longer-rake fork options now available adds confidence and high-speed ability and works with a weight bias that helps loft the front wheel when needed. More confidence when it's steep, faster and smoother in some places and simply a better bike for some riders, the Ramin may well be worth a look. The Ramin One takes our triple-butted 6066 Aluminium frame to a price level where previously, good 29ers were rare. This isn't a hybrid pretending to be a 29er, it's a step towards full 29er performance with Shimano M395 hydraulic brakes and a full-range 8-spd Shimano drivetrain with a triple up front to keep the gearing low enough.
