try driving your car less
comment: of course, nice bike. i like how you put the strong stickers where the brake bosses used to be.
suggestion: ring that bell frequently! ding ding ding!
Only boring people get bored.
Stings like a bee?
Wow, two new ti 29er SSs out at demo forest tomorrow? Too much...
nice ride and a few questions
Very sweet ride!!!!!!!!!
What are the frame specs and how tall are you & inseam.
I'm trying to decide on a 29er and fit.
Thanks for the compliments all!....
23.5 effective top tube.....17.5 c to c seat tube...
I am about 5"11 and my inseam is about 32...
The strong fits really similar to a medium monkey, which is what I had before.

btw, sweet looking ride...cost for the frame?
....is a syntace lowrider..13mm rise, 6 sweep, 680mm wide, which is about 26 3/4 inches.
Carls ti frames go for somewhere in the neighborhood of 2200. Carl is great to work with, communicates well and often, and tells it to ya like it is....highly recommended if you're looking for a nice steel or ti frame.

Thought I might see some dirt drops on this build.
Very sweet looking ride, hope it rides as well as it looks.
What are you doing with your 2 Monkey's?
...the other two monkeys are still around....I may have to part with the geared one, it hasn't seen any action for a while. As for the SS, I may put a squishy fork on it and use it for super tech trails(as if I ever ride any:-), or I may put the aforementioned dirt drops on it and give them a fair try. So far I have had them on the cross/townie bike and I really like them, I just don't have a stem yet to get them to work in the dirt....soon though, soon!
