Well, the cat’s out of the bag.
He had something special that he wanted to showcase.
And he brought Stu Thomsen along for the occasion.
That “something” was the reintroduction of the STR (Stu’s signature frame back in the day).
But this wasn’t just a simple re-pop…this STR has evolved!
This STR is a 29-incher!
(Hence the name – STR-29.)
The frame design is pretty trick.
The double down-tubes begin at the head tube, wrap underneath the bottom bracket, continue around the looptail (!) rear dropouts and then connect again on the top tube.
When I shared the first pic of the STR-29 on the CR Facebook page, a couple people questioned the 29″ size.
I kinda wondered about it too.
No sooner had that thought crossed my mind…this picture popped up on my feed.
It appears that my suspicions that the STR-29 being an extraordinary wheelie machine were confirmed.
I’m sure we’re going to be hearing more about the SE STR-29 in the weeks and months ahead.
