Aaron Bradford New BMCSpotted on the Instagram account of Aaron Bradford, this unreleased 29er prototype looks ready to shred. It’s hard to observe anything concrete from the low resolution image, but it appears the bike does away from the curved top tube that punctuated the design language of previous BMC 29er models, but still uses the APS dual short link suspension.

It also appears that the bike has internal cable routing for the rear derailleur, as well as internal routing for a remote lockout on the rear shock.

    I suppose it’s a stealth spot relative to Swiss-land! I expect to see Ibis/Santa Cruz/Specialized/Calfee/Rock Lobster products in and around SC!

    And people do see those. Prototypes and one-offs are tested and ridden here so often that at most people just compliment you on a sick ride and wheel off on their own. It’s a funny place.

What do you think?
