    Flyte Celsius 69er

    I've been on 29ers for the last two years, but I had a 26" Flyte Celsius 6 Degree frame (defunct frame builder - previously Airbourne) I never was able to sell and a bunch of spare parts ... so I built this up. It's been a fun change of pace, single speed and rigid, but I need to get more miles on it to know what it's really like. I used a $40.00 Origin 8 Black OPs 29er rigid steel fork because it only has an a-c length of 435mm (compared to 485mm on my Niner brand rigid fork) which gives it pretty quick steering with no clearance issues.

    The weight was aceptable - butted 4130 steel - I got it on ebay, not sure what the list price is. It's a nice looking fork - disc brake only.
