ECLIPSE OF THE SUN Spec sheet
As you can see the Eclipse has taken the mountain bike to another level. It owes a lot to the Bumblebee, which sort of, ah, pollenated a mountian bike somewhere along the line. The bike spec'ed below is set up for a White Brothers Magic 100 single crown fork. There was a time when 100mm was considered long travel. Now it's a cross country fork. The reference tire for designing in clearances is the Wilderness Trails 2.4 MotoRaptor. Even fat cross country tires will go through Eclipse's stays.
The base-price model of this bike is welded from a robust grade of plain vanilla chrome moly tubing. If you want to spend more you can get the bike with a variety of lighter, high-strength tubesets. Most of this material should be brazed up rather than oxy-acetylene welded.
