    Just rode my ti hard tail for the first time. I noticed an immediate pounding on my posterier compared to my FS. I don't know how you SS rigid guys do it. Props to you!

    In my experience, it is all about changing the lines that you take. If you ride the rigid SS like you ride your 5" FS, you will get the crap beat out of you. However, if you pick your lines, rigid can be surprisingly comfortable.

    That being said, I much prefer my unicrown rigid fork from James over the truss style that I had previous on the Jones. The truss was too rigid for the type of riding I do.

    Price varies depending on the degree of customization. I suggest you talk with James at Black Sheep.

    ...and James likely gave squeaky cornhole a discount to STFU and leave him alone. I honestly felt sorry for James while he was working with squeaky - nobody deserves that

    Telescoping chainstays. Very nice mechanism. I'll take a picture and post later.
    No creaking. Stays tight. So far so good.
    My friend (volkstech) has had this system for several mos without any problems and I don't know many people who ride more or harder than him.

    Nice bike....I gotta ask you, how do you like the Halo Freedom Disc's? I'm looking to build up a new wheelset (geared out back) and have been thinking of going with those rims. I have a friend that runs them on both of his 26er's but was wondering how the 29er version is....thanks.

    The Black Sheep is less expensive and you'll likely get it quicker.

    and as someone who owns neither, which makes me less subjectively objective, the black sheeps look a HELL of alot better.

    My two Black Sheep frames suffer from an embarrassing lack of swoops and curves, but they still ride great. My first frame from James was designed around a Rohloff hub. The second is a dedicated single speed (actually requires the use of an ENO eccentric hub) with the major design feature being the ability to run a narrow Q-factor crank (I'm using a compact road crank). They both sport James made forks (one Ti and one steel) with 50 mm of offset, making for razor sharp handling with about 65 mm of trail.
