The debate between 26” and 29” MTB wheel sizes will continue to rage on and it won’t help that most manufacturers are creating some impeccable machines. This example was compiled by someone who has extensive experience with both variations and that’s Chris Southwood, the editor of Australian Mountain Bike magazine. The frame is a Justice Madison and the man with the torch in his hand is Gary Snodgrass, hailing from Old Fort, Tennessee. It’s obvious from reading his profile and the testimonials that he puts his heart and soul into building his frames. I love the detail in the sliding dropouts, and the paint is immaculate. Chris has built his Justice Madison up as a single speed with a 32/20 ratio, laced up to a Shimano XT 29” wheelset. Deceleration is provided via Formula R1 discs and the blue is a subtle contrast with the white and green color scheme. The front end is finished off with Manitou Minute forks. Chris had Sydney photographer Tristan Cardew shoot some flicks of the Justice Madison before taking it for it’s maiden voyage. Lucky thing too, I don’t think it’s going to be this clean for long.
