29er Hard tail
Can you please help, I'm finding it hard to get 29er hard tail photos, those of you who have then please show me before I buy.
Thanks in advance
There was a very nice kawa green Argon 29er floating around somewhere. Do a google images search for Nicolai Argon 29er and its about the eighth result on there on with lots of others.
I like that.
would like a 29er hardtail.
was wondering about Belt drive and internal gear rear hub.
Hmm. Kalle Nicolai said that the belt drive costs about three times as much as a (good) chain and lasts about three times as long. Also, the belt drive requires very accurate assembly and alignment otherwise there seem to be some durability problems. Not really a con argument, but it shows that the belt drive is not trouble free per se.
As for the IGH: I had a Rohloff and didn't like it at all. Shifting under load was impossible, it's super heavy, noisy, and I couldn't operate the twist shifter when out of the saddle (always shifted two gears). No option for an xc hardtail, I think.
Edit: The Rohloff also felt like sucking some additional watts.
All that seems to want to say go 1x11 on it.
