We started with a fresh piece of paper when we designed the new Flint 29. What we wanted was a very versatile bike that was lightweight, stiff, durable and able to excel in all conditions. The Flint is just that. It's a 29er that's packed with features, that's designed from the ground up to breath speed, and we guarantee it will make your friends jealous.

The Flint is singlespeed or geared capable, using a made in the US Bushnell eccentric that expands and locks into an oversize bottom bracket shell. The BB shell, like the rest of the frame, is made of out AN6 aluminum. We have found AN6 aluminum provides a unique ride quality when used on a hardtail: it is light weight of course, creating a frame that is under 3.5 pounds for a large, but it also provides a responsiveness (we call it liveliness) that most aluminum frames lack. This is also a result of the shaping of the seat and chainstays as well as the butting profile of the top and down tubes.

Nailing the geometry was another critical factory for the Flint. After multiple prototypes and many hours of ride testing, we focused on angles and tube lengths that help provide the very best in what the big wheels have to offer. With the increased wheel size we felt that many aspects of traditional thinking and understanding of geometry's were moot. So paper we set out to get something exacting; a bike that was lively, stable at speed, and tracked well in the tight stuff. Taking the time to work with multiple prototypes helped us nail down the race-bred feeling that Tomac's are know for, while the 29" wheels provide a new chapter in Tomac heritage.

Aside form a race-bred geometry, the Flint's features provide you with a bike that is truly a go anywhere, do anything machine. With triple bottle mounts and geared or singlespeed capability, it's bike that is as at home on the race coarse as it is on an all day adventure-style epic. From high altitude passes to beer laps with your buddies, the Flint won't let you down. And it's our attention to detail that will make this hard tail stand up to the test of time. With the bottle mounts and cable routing, rigid or suspended capable geometry, or the single or multiple gear options, we looked at every detail to bring you a bike you can fall in love with year after year.

please choose what spec and let us know we will let you know the price.
