    One of the first nice looking Cannondales I've seen in a long time. Even a "real" fork on it too.

    I've seen one squeezed into a '10/11 model on here somewhere with enough room to spare. I doubt the clearance lessened for the '13.
    Once I burn through the stock tires I'll post pics of the upgrade.

    The RDO seatpost is a dream. Really smooths things out. I have one on my Air 9 RDO and wouldn't leave home without it. They are pricey though!

    That's a 32 on the front. I built this bike with a 21t in rear as we have mountains here in North GA.

    My really nice fancy Fox fork is completely neglected, hanging in the garage, gathering dust.

    Awesome, Im running a ss rigid EMD9, soon I want a Niner carbon fork but I think the seatpost should come first. Thanks for the info!

    Here's my G29 was happy with what it was at it's price point even more so now. Have not ridden the carbon fork yet but the reduced weight from the stock fork is noticeable. Going tubeless helped alot too

    Stout/Nashbar 29er was not bad, but I needed steel. Picked up a Kona Unit frame and swapped my parts over.

    That is such a beautiful combination. How did you get the frame and fork colours to match, as they're different manufacturers?

    Carbon wheels too?

    Checking prices here in the UK, a bike like that would cost around 5,000 to build - about $7,700! For a SS rigid!!

    (it's gorgeous though...)

    Anyone know of a thread on MTBR that is dedicated to Titanium framed, singlespeed, rigid 29ers?
    (It's what I want to try next but I'm not aware of the choices there are, i.e. what's best value for money, and what's best / lightest if money was no object), and what the best combinations of frame / fork are...

    2013 Kona Unit, Whiskey Parts Co #7 Carbon Fork, Swapped out the BB7's for a set of SLX, HT Evo pedals, and converted the Ikons to tubeless. It is NUTS how much fun this thing is to ride.

    Thanks meltingfeather.

    What is the Niner color called please (of your fork)?

    Also, are you happy with those Light-Bicycle rims? How is the quality? I see they're Chinese. I'm in the UK and can't find a wheelbuilder that uses them here, but I'm investigating further. Your build is pretty much exactly what I want, but it's not going to be cheap in the UK!

    The fork is moon dust grey.
    Not very stoked about my experience with the rims. There aren't many options at the price point though.

    mf - what don't you like about the rims?

    I've been in contact with... you guessed it, Nancy! ...and she said they don't have a distributor here, so I'd have to order direct from China, pay by Paypal, pay customs duty on entry into the country, and somehow get them to a wheelbuilder by courier, and hope they don't get lost or mixed up before coming back to me laced up. Is it worth the hassle and risk? But like you say the price seems good...

    In general I don't like the customer-as-Q/C model... I wasn't at all impressed with the finishing work on my rims and one of them developed substantial cracks around the spoke holes before I even got a tire on it. It was covered by warranty, but I had to pay $40 for them to ship it and deal with the hassle of rebuilding.

    No way I can answer that question for you.

    Zion 737 EBB

    Just took my Zion EBB for a ride...first 29er, first dedicated SS, first steel bike - all at once! It rides awesome - my next geared bike will be a 29er! Set up with a 32x20t with a Salsa fork. I need to built up some lighter wheels, go tubeless, and switch out the crank, then maybe go to a 19t. Not sure about the Ergons yet...Post pics of your FULLY RIGID SS 29er-110_2741.jpg
