The Django is all about bringing the fun factor to the 29"-wheel platform, sporting 120mm Split-Pivot travel, super short 17" chainstays, and relatively modest geometry. That translates to a very responsive bike that loves to play. Building upon the success of Devinci's previous 29'er, the Atlas, the Django 29 has improved in several ways. It's frame has been beefed up, with the same style of boxed carbon tube profile used on the Troy and Spartan. While the Atlas was considered an XC bike, the Django 29 brings a more playful approach as a great all-around trail bike. It's not the slackest or most aggressive 29'er out there, but it's certainly no weight-wheenie XC bike either. It strikes a great balance that should appeal to those looking for an every-day 29'er trail bike that won't break the bank.
As with all Devinci bikes, the Django features adjustable geometry. Using flip chips located on the upper seatstay pivots, you can switch between high and low settings, adjusting head angle and BB height. The Django is designed to be used with forks ranging from 120mm - 140mm of travel. With a 130mm fork in the low geometry position, the head angle sits at 67.5°, with a 13.3" BB height. Flip the chips to the high setting, and it steepens the head angle to 68° with a 13.6" BB height. A 140mm fork, such as the Pike, will slacken the head angle by about 0.7°, getting you into sub-67° territory.
Other details on the Django include full internal cable routing for dropper post, rear brake, and rear shifter. The Django does not have a front derailleur mount, so it is only compatible with 1X drivetrains. The Django has 12x148mm Boost rear dropout spacing, as well as BB92 bottom bracket shell and ISCG '05 chainguide tabs.
