    Now what about this steel hardtail?

    Now we know what the FS bike is, what about the steel ss bike mentioned earlier in this thread?

    I just would like to know. Need has nothing to do with it. The poster said it would be a complete bike at a very reasonable price. If it's true, then there may be several people that decide they need it, while you go on and enjoy whatever it is that you would like to ride. I will agree that there are several choices in this flavor already. None are very inexpensive, readily available, and cheap. It might be a good competitor to the Karate Monkee, which is terminally out of stock, or so it would seem. So, while you may not see a need for another steel hardtail single speed bike, others might, if the price is right.

    With Kona, Niner and others coming out of the woodwork with steel HT's the choices are pretty good (granted the Niner is not cheap). For 29’er specific parts there is a better selection of steel HT frames than any other part in the market.

    IMHO before I see another steel HT frame from (insert manufacturer here) I would like to see more rims, tires, forks etc………….

    Uh yea...we do.

    How about a nice production steel 29"er at a mid-level price point (say $400-$600) w/ no EBB and standard geared dropouts (no mutant dropouts)..

    You know a regular old bike frame...thats what we need.
