*I posted this on the 29er thread also*
My first 29er build ... nailed it.
After much research, I picked the Paradox because it's geometry is almost identical to my Nomad. I think this familiarity really helped me adjust to a 29" wheel.
Finding a Paradox frame in large was proving to be almost impossible - sorry LBS, I couldn't wait any longer. Finally got one from BikeBling.
This bike rips! Surprisingly nimble. I can loft the front end better than on my Nomad.
Specs as of now:
Fork: Modded Fox 36 Float ... so stiff.
Drivetrain: 1x9 - 32t front / 11-36t cassette (I think I need a lower gear - not sure if I'll add a front derailleur or a 38t cog)
Wheels: Flows on White Industries MI6 hubs
Everything else from the parts bin.
