    China 29er

    My GOTO China 29er arrived this week. Looks in perfect order as I too have ridden a 26" carbon from China without issues. I could buy 3 from China for the savings. Dam holiday travel this week will postpone my build. Was $550 to the door delivered.

    that sucks i would have gotten the UD... i placed my order months ago i have had the frame and for for about 2 and a half months now...

    if you are using there rigid fork. i had to use centerlock front hub because the screws rub the inside of the fork. also max rotor size is 160 for both front and rear. just fyi

    FSA makes a kit such that you can run a 1 1/8" steerer tube, all Niners come with it that run that type of headset. I know, I'm running one on my XL Jet.

    If they ever make this in a 21" frame, I'd be interested.

    The GOTO carbon is around $650 shipped.

    Not really such a great deal considering the new On-One Lurcher is going to be around $700.

    That is for the carbon race frame and includes VAT.

    Target price for the Lurcher is 500 GBP (including VAT I assume)

    The Lurcher is 200gr heavier and has sliding dropouts for geared or SS use.

    Could be the Surly tensioner in the push down position, which I tried with little success. I ditched it for a Rennen on one bike and an STS on the other, both in push up mode, problem solved. I like the STS best as the tensioner wheel has side to side float which is a tremendous help,especially when you have axial twist in the rear of the frame on hard climbing uphill turns.

    Nope it's the hub. Metal shavings don't lie lol. I flipped the tensioner so it pushed up on the chain and then cable tied it while it was tight so it wouldn't move almost a full wrap on the cog to make sure it wasent the tensioner and it still skipped. Putting bearings in it today. But it seems like a temp fix. We will see.
