Built up a pretty little 26er a few years ago. Rare 2010 Gary Fisher Big Sur frame with a heavy coil fork and some other decent junk. 1x9. Accelerated great but handled slow in the turns and jerky in technical sections. Granted a G2 geometry fork may have helped, but I had gotten into endurance riding in rocky, rooted New England terrain so I decided 29er was the only way to go.
Parted out the Fisher:
On One Inbred 19.5" vertical dropout frame
Manitou Tower Pro fork
Sun Ringle Black Flag Pro wheels
Geax Saguaro 2.2" tires running tubeless with stan's
Truvativ Stylo 1.1 GXP crank with Salsa SS 36T ring
PG 990 Cassette 11-34T
Bontrager Carbon Bar
SLX Short Cage derailleur
Cheap Avid Levers
Heavy Time Atac Alium Pedals
Sorry for the pointless post, just excited to join the 29er riders.
