    Show me your crotch rocket!



    Yeah, that could have gone bad.

    Pay no attention to the wheelset. That's off my Eriksen. Stan's Alpines laced to I9 should be considerably less. This was just a crazy fun project!

    Shhhh. They'll hear you and want it back.

    Ya know, having 29ers and 26ers, each has its place. But, for someone with my vertical challenge, I really feel most comfortable going fast when I am closer to the ground.

    I'll never race, but I sure feel like I could win on this thing. My 29er feels like a 1986 Cadi sedan de ville compared to this thing.

    How does a 29er make you higher from the ground?

    First there is the little thing called three inches. Second, most 29er frames in my size seem to have a little shorter top tube. It compacts me and puts me in more of a sitting position than forward. It doesn't make me higher but does make me fel like I am.

    Apparently the GF did not appreciate being referred to as my "crotch rocket."

    She has been out of warranty for a while anyway.

    in our shop the bb height of 29ers is usually a bit lower than the equivalent 26er. The goal these days is to make a 29er handle quicker and a lower bb helps. however that, plus a short wheelbase and steep angles of modern 29ers, still does not a 26er make.

    nice bike--don't let the haters hate. Our buyer, Bryan Alders, rips the p**h out of his 26er hardtail.

    Three extra inches diameter still doesn't make you higher from the ground. Second, most 29ers in comparable sizes actually have longer TT to account for the the extra 1.5" radius for toe overlap.

    For as light as that thing is, it has a granny? For shame.

    Nice ride, for a 26er hardtail. Enjoy!!!

    rips the path out of his 26er?
    rips the pith out of his 26er?
    rips the pooh out of his 26er?

    Something tells me if your boy Bryan is a ripper on a 26er, he'd likely be a ripper on a 29er HT or a dual suspension too. I've found no matter how much money I spend on a bike, I'm still a fat, slow guy with a desk job.

    rips the *oo* out of his 26er. he feels faster on the 26er, no matter how many times I tell him to try a 29er. something about his bike needing to weigh 18lbs or something like that.

    True. Now if he needs a 14lb bike, he can go to a 29er HT.
    Jumping my 14lb A9C


    BTW, I think the above link is a bit ridiculous (as I do with most overly obsessive WW builds), merely throwing this out as conversation. I like bikes. I own both 26" and 29" wheeled bikes, like each for different reasons.

    To be accurate - that bike linked is NOT a hardtail. It's full rigid. NTTAWWT.

    True, but I think even with a Reba as opposed to the rigid carbon fork he'd still be under 18 pounds with ease. I believe my Reba 29 XX weighed in the 3.75 pound range uncut.

    Yeah - but who is impressed by 18 pounds?

    try as I might my bikes always weigh 29lbs. they start lighter, then I ride it lots and wear out the tires. My next set is inevitably heavier and so it goes with the rest of the stuff.

    this crotch rocket looks like it's trail ready in all aspects. I can't handle a flat bar anymore but the rest looks trail ready.
