    Single Speed Comparison Table

    So I've been doing some research for buying a new bike. I already have an SS 26er and it rules so I figure I need an SS 29er as well. I compiled this rough table to compare mostly new bikes that I found trolling the internets. It's not a master's research project or anything so I'm sure there's a lot missing but I'm pretty sure I hit the big ones. Feel free to add any up-to-date info you may have.

    * A little explaination:
    -Horizontal - Classic track style fork ends, probably has nutted axles.
    -Horizontal w/ nuts - Track style but with some sort of tensioning nut on the frame for use with QR
    -Vertical w/ EBB - Uses Eccentric Bottom Bracket
    -Verticle w/ sliders - Vertical dropouts that are movable along the frame for tensioning

    OS Bikes | Blackbuck | 29 | Rigid | Yes, only | Vertical w/ EBB | Steel | osbikes.com | 480.00 frame & fork

    Prices may have been raised since I bought mine... Supposedly the next run will feature one size smaller and larger than the current size.

    EDIT: Prices were raised, so I changed it to reflect the current price.

    I can't believe you forgot one of the "pioneers"...

    The Surly 1x1!

    I know you said 29ers, but the 1x1 can be configured as a 26er, 29er, 650B, or any combination you wish!

    Better to have and not need it, than to need it and not have it.

    Thanks for the additions/suggestions. I'm not going to do anymore of the research so if you think a bike should be added to this thread do like ShadowsCast and put more relevant information than just the model of the bike.

    And Karate Monkey and Exile are on there.

    You may want to check some of those listed as to whether it's a frame, frame&fork or complete bike. The SIR 9 price is just for the frame&fork, for example. Also, I didn't think the Swobo Folsom was a 29er. Is this a conversion?

    The GT Peace comes with disk brakes now.
    "There are those who would say there's something pathological about the need to ride, and they're probably on to something. I'd wager though that most of the society-approved compulsions leave deeper scars in the psyche than a need to go and ride a bicycle on a mountain." Cam McRea

    They have some awsome Ti frames at prices not far from off the shelf carbon or high end custom steel.
