    I'm surprised more folks haven't done that .. the color matches the frame so closely. This has been an amazing ride - I feel like I'm 12 years old again when I ride! I thoguht I'd put a suspension fork on it but Ican't even imagine doing that now.

    Thanks for the kind words!

    My new rigid Raleigh XXIX 29er singlespeed. Just picked it up last week from the LBS...got a hell of a deal on it since it was a 2007 model. I'm new to the whole 29er and singlespeed thing but got a chance to ride it a bit yesterday and had a lot of fun. The singlespeed is going to take some getting used to, but I like that it really forces you to spin at a high rpm, something I should do more of on my geared bike.

    So far I've change the seatpost to a Thomson and the pedals to Egg Beaters. Probably won't do much more to it. Oh, and I LOVE the color of this thing.

    Sick looking bike man. I like that build. You should throw some black cranks and a black chain on that baby though, for a completely stealth build. Would look very trick.

    Voodoo Dambala One 29er: my new baby

    Yes I know there is a sus post on the Voodoo...fear not, I use the rigid post on both bikes cause I LOVE that seat so they are both technically rigid

    29, single & rigid is the only way to be

    Back to the Future

    I finished this bike several weeks ago. Either weather or business travel has kept this new bike dirt free.

    Hoping to change that this weekend.

    If you are refering to the Niner EMD I posted, that is a stock color that Niner offers.

    Niner just started offering this color on the EMD. It's been available on other models previously.

    you'll notice a couple custom bits on the bike that are worth noting: first, Miker J put a custom lexan ring around the freewheel to prevent the chain from jumping in, and my wife and wes thought that the formerly-black bontrager stem clashed against the ti bar and other aluminum colored handlebar stuff, so wes bead-blasted it, but covered up the logo, so you can still see it.

    my future additions are to substitute the saddle and to move my clipless pedals over.
    How do you like the ergon grips? Are you still able to grab a firm hold while climbing?

    Here is my new-to-me Redline Monocog 29er. Picked it up on eBay for $230.00. Cant beat that. Many upgrades will follow, but I'll ride it like this for a while to decide what to spend the money on first. So far I've just assembled it and swaped the stock stem upside down to get the bar height right.

    Nice 'cog! I've always dug their paintjobs (I have a 26" Monocog with a red/black paintjob similar to your black/yellow).

    You ran this race with no real heart
    Yeah right back at the start
    You'd already lost it

    Thanks! The boogie nights "monocog" font is pretty cool too. The paint scratches and chips really easy though, I can see where it's worn away in several places from shipping. I guess I'll just have to get it powdercoated (or more likely rattle-can paint it w/ some bbq paint like my others ;-)

    Geared Zion in rigid mode.
    Sold my El Comandante but seeing all these beautiful SS rigid MTB's has me dreaming of a matching SS Zion.

    My Rigid XXIX

    Here is my new/used XXIX. I bought the frameset and my plan was to throw it together with parts I had sitting around. Naturally, I talked myself into a few upgrades. My budget bike blew through my budget in a hurry. No real rides on it yet but I love how quiet the SS drivetrain is.

    I spy, with my little eye, 2 cogs in the back of your drivetrain.

    That's a good little eye! Initially, I'm setting it up as a "dingle" speed. Right now I have just the 36 ring up front and 22/18 cogs in back. But after I get short chainring bolts, I'm going to pull off the bash guard and mount up a 32 ring. It's a flatish 7 miles to my local loop and I'm not looking forward to spinning for that long before I even get to dirt. I'll try it for a while and see how it works out. This is my first "SS" so I'm taking baby steps. First a 2S then maybe a true SS.

    XXIX run these pages.

    cchough, ahhh, thanks for posting your XXIX to share! Cool dos ENO freewheel, the chainline is okay with it? Have a close-up of your 30.0mm Salsa seatpost collar?

    Below, the final pix of metrotuned Raleigh XXIX in full rigid mode. The bike is fully disassembled now!

    Will be using the tip from XXIX+G owner, G-Ted, returning in full metal jacket, June 2008.

    It will no longer qualify for the "rigid 29ers" thread, though!

    Actually, it's an SS specific Bontrager wheelset from a Fisher Rig. I'm running 2 Surly steel cogs with no spacers. I was thinking about going the freewheel route but I've always had freehub wheels so I figured I'd go with what I know.

    I'll get a close up of the seat post collar when I get home.

    Tkblazer, where was that? It looks pretty fun. I ride that stuff rigid too sometimes, so you're not the only one not smart enough to use some suspension. :-)

    My polished turd.



    Bought the bike, sold all the parts on eBay. Paid negative $60 for the frame. The idea being to see if I dig on 29ers or not (I do), and if so get a nice custom frame to hang the parts from. Though, for Chinese made crap, the Raleigh ain't too bad.

    I am curious....what are the Pros and Cons of having a rigid 29er? I know there will be savings on weight but aside from it, is there a disctinct advantage of front suspended bikes? Thank you

    Another Mary . . .

    Just got some ESI silacone grips. Hope that does that trick for the vibs . . . Maybe a carbon fork is in order . . .

    BTW, I've noticed that most who've posted on this thread have a sensitivity for aesthetitcs. Seems to be indicative of the SS/ridgid/29er crew . . .

    My El Mariachi today. Bad pics. My camera died, but my phone worked better than expected. It was late in the evening too.





    This is where my bike sleeps at night. It likes the warmth of the heater.

    Not sure how I feel about posting mine, next to some of these works of art but here it is...



    I know I know not a "real 29er" but this forum was what got me thinking rigid and 29er for a commuter, I will post shots next winter with big fat tires and make it an honest 29er

    It's the Carbon Pro Moto in 31.8 w/ 11* sweep. I actually bought it to try out on my other bike but I ended up going back to the Monkeylite XC after a few rides. So when I picked up the XXIX frame, I had a nearly new carbon bar just waiting to be ridden.

    So far, it feels plenty stiff even when out of the saddle. I suppose it also attenuates vibration as well but I don't have an AL bar to compare it to.

    They are the 11^ carbon pro motos. I've put my hands on the 17 but I prefer these.

    I've also used Jones and Marys in the past but settled back on these for simple versatility.

    Two Monkeys





    What do you do with a bunch of parts waiting on a custom frame?

    Why, you build a monkey of course.

    This one is a large (20"). I actually really like the blue color as well. Once my other frame comes in, this will be built as a loaner/ kid trailer puller/ back-up ride. I think the KM is a nicer frame than the price would suggest.

    Since the thread started with a Vassago...

    The Bandersnatch is my first big wheeler and my first full rigid. Coming from a SC Heckler. Man are these big wheels ever fun! ODIS fork and have since replaced the Sette XLR bar/stemm with Spank Loungebar and oversized stem.

    New stumpy!

    Hey all, here are a few pictures of my newly built Stumpjumper HT single speed. Pace RC29 fork, Cane Creek Zonos wheels....a bunch of other stuff that may or may not change! Hoping for a Truvativ Noir single speed crankset but we'll see. 21.78 lbs after the build! I'm 5'3" and the frame fit is awesome! I've ridden the stock geared version bike but not ss and rigid yet so I'll let you all know after the first ride (tomorrow I hope!)

    I sold my 26" FS frame, fork and another frame then embarked on my Ebay journey to piece together this work of art. Purpose - to replace my commuter bike (circa 96 Raleigh M60, my first MTB), serve as a CX candidate if I do that again and pull duty as a loaner for my Dad when he comes to visit. It also was a place to use most of the parts I'd taken off other bikes and had cluttering up my bike shelf.

    Behold - the palate of color and majesty that is below:

    <a href="http://picasaweb.google.com/Kevin.Rants/MonocogFlight29/photo#5189668849087456866"><img src="http://lh4.ggpht.com/Kevin.Rants/SAVoUnvEpmI/AAAAAAAABlw/hL4ILdrmnCY/s800/IMG_2946.JPG" /></a>

    - 2007 21" Monocog Flight frame (ebay)
    - 2008 Monocog Flight fork (ebay)
    - worn out Maxxis Crossmark rear / worn out Bontrager Dry X front (this thing's abrasion resistant sidewalls provide enough strength to run low pressures and make the rigid feel not so rigid) - sourced from my tub-o-tires
    - Truvativ Stylo 1:1, 180mm, taken from my Sultan
    - Titec H-bar with the front position cut off, saving 60 grams for those weight weenies who care (I was more interested in removing excess material so maybe I could get away with riding these in a CX event) - used these on my old Rook
    - Thomson stem from old Rook
    - Hayes brakes w/ V7 front/V6 rear rotors, orange Danger Boy levers, taken from my old 26" full suspension
    - Mavic A317s and XT hubs, ebay find, but new items
    - Selle Italia saddle, ebay
    - Thomson seatpost - ebay
    - pewter King headset, from old 26" FS bike

    About the only things I bought from a store for this build was an N-gear jumpstop (it's going to end up 1x9 for commuting duty) and the green Salsa liplock.

    thanks. Future plans call for a white powdercoat with gray/green panel graphics but the pea green/aqua blue combo seems to work for me right now.
