New Zealand bike maker Avanti is throwing its hat in the light, stiff, yet nimble and tough do everything carbon 29er category with a nice update to their alloy Ridgeline.  The carbon front triangle of this version adds not just stiffness and weight reduction, but also features like a removable bolt-on front derailleur mount, internal cable routing, and 142x12mm thru-axle dropouts.
