At the Bike Festival in Riva we not only discovered the prototype of the 2015 Rose Uncle Jimbo, we also spotted the new Rose Root Miller prototype. With 130 millimeters of travel and big 29 inch wheels, it is very interesting for aggressive trail riders. The bike is probably targeted for the 2015 model year, before release the Rose Root Miller will get new hydroformed tubes and an aggressive geometry.
