Well after a few years on my 26er Scandal lefty build and having spent the last year rocking 29" and 26" Mountain Unicycles I have got a thing for the big wheel roll overabuility so fancied some bike 29er action to, so what to get, well that was obvious.
I was part way through cutting the hoses when I took the picture so excuse the long rear hose
The raw finish has to be seen in person it is like brushed stainless steel there is a slight patina around th big welds were I assume the heat from the welding alter the metals structure but that actually looks quite nic (and you can only see it up close). My 26er had some tough old black anodising and is immaculate after all this time so I am sure the Raw finish will last as well.
The Stans rims on hopes were a second had bargain and the Tubles Ready NN tyres held air with no sealant instantly, although bunged some in of course.
Need to weight it but it should be high 21 lbs compared to my 18.8lb 26er that I spent a lot more on I am please with that for a big wheeled bike (the forks seat and post are the main causes).
I even moved to an 18" from the 16" 26er and am please with that as I think it fits the larger wheels better and i was pushing the limits of a 16" frame with my post almost being at the max extension.
Only nipped up the road but will be doing a big old ride tomorrow (50+ miles hopefully)
These frames are awesome, great geo (no slack angled rubbish) light and good looking and would be good value at twice the price
Hope you like
