Interbike 2011: Breezer introduces 29er steel hardtail

The new Breezer Lightning looks much like steel the Breezers of years gone by but with the incorporation of modern technologies.

The Lightening Team uses a BB92 bottom bracket. The wider bottom bracket shell allows the use of an offset, and quite large, non-driveside chainstay. This is necessary to provide tire and chainring clearance with the frame’s short, 439mm chainstays.

The top and down tubes are hydroformed. The top tube becomes square near the juntion with the headtube. The down tube is curved for fork crown clearance.

Breezer’s steel 29er will be available this November. Frames will retail for $899 and a complete bike with an X9 build kit will retail for $2,249.
