    Not exactly the same place, but there's still time to head back for a new pic.

    I was trying to get in a few miles before December's blizzard hit - I got caught, but had a blast. It's a Karate Monkey, Salsa fork, Rampages tubeless and aired down.

    Sweet ride!

    How are those bars treating you? I'm thinking about a build along those lines. Can you ride on the hoods comfortably, or you in the drops all the time?

    Thanks!

    My Raleigh XXIX

    I've had FS XC racers, 29er hardtails with front suspension, and this bike. This one by far is the most fun to ride!

    I went with the 445. I bought the frame and stock fork used and later found the fork had a small dent in it. The Exotic 445 was the closest to the original fork size. Steering is super fast.

    I'll play along. This is my custom True Fabrication Bicycles 29er SS.


    The first two pictures show the diversity of the powder coating. It's an amazing bike.

    Nothing special

    A pic from this mornings 1.5 hour voyage along the snomo trail. Just a run of the mill Fisher Rig with a Bontrager carbon fork (pardon the photo quality, I only had my camera phone with me). This bike is soon to be retired however as I recently bought a Fargo frame. . . which leaves me in a predicament as I am still going to want a SS bike. I was never a good cyclist until I bought a SS, rigid, 29er. It is as though the bike taught me how to ride for the first time. You can't have more fun anywhere than you can on bikes like the ones in this thread.

    Thanks!

    With the stem on in the picture I pretty much had to ride the hoods to be comfortable. Which was OK until it got steep and/or rocky. So I replaced that stem with a Ritchey 90mm 30 degree ride on. This made the drops the primary position, but the hoods are still comfortable.

    I have switched it back to a riser bar for now, just because the bike is seeing more mountain biking and less commuting/road. But I am keeping the drops and riser stem as I really like the feel and this may be my "around town" bike when we move to AZ in a couple months.

    For some special reason, our rigid bikes surpass all other technologies in providing fun ! It's simple, it's the rider and the trail.
    I, like you did, went through all the suspended and 26er bikes before settling on my rigid 29er.

    Curtlo nearly finished

    I love this thread, unbelievable activity and variety in what is a in itself a niche within a niche. So here's the replacement for my Singular posted way back, a Curtlo Mountaineer 29er built up Singlespeed, a custom frame that I bought used. The defining features are the curved seat stays and compact seat and head tubes compared to the top tube length. Size M-L if you wish and the steering is really quick with the 45mm rake Salsa forks.



    The reason for taking pictures was the new wheels: Flow rims on Royce hubs from the UK.
    High flanges, polished finish, titanium axles, a silent freehub and smoooth bearings, what's not to love?


    The SIngular was fiitted with a EBB, cleaner looking, but this works OK on the trail too.


    Next I'll be fitting some 2.4 tires and I may not be eligible for the "rigid" thread . Here's a last side-on shot.


    Enjoy!!
