The N-3 has been designed around short travel and rigid forks, 700x40c and 29x2.35 tyres. The geometry option on the N-3 are endless. Any geometry is possible to suit the type of terrain that you ride Cyclocross, Gravel and Cross Country adventure riding comes to mind. With 68 or 70 degree head angle this geometry will feel balanced with an Axle to Crown measurement to suit your fork of choice.   This make the bike ideal for light bike-packing and long distance adventure racing.  

700c gave birth to the 29er MTB, which was initially adopted by tall riders. However the geometry has fragmented over the years into drop-bar builds (Monster Cross) and with discs now common, Gravel or XC riding has come back.
