    Is this a keeper?

    So I used to ride this bike all the time a couple years ago. Set up 1X9, F29 .
    Then I turned it over to a local Xterra racer who put a Lefty on it and rode to victory in numerous venues.
    Today he traded it back to me in exchange for a decked out Racer X.

    The Fireline now has a 2X10 (FSA Afterburner) and DT XRRigid Carbon, plus some flat racer bars.

    Do I reinflate the rear tire, ride it as is, turn it back into the same bike I had before, or find a new home for it and stick with my SteelExo?

    Something about titanium that draws me like a moth to a flame.

    If it was 26" I'd take it off your hands. I'd swap the fork to a fox f29 and ride it if I were you.

    If it was a larger frame, I'd happily sell a kidney and take it off your hands, too. +1 on that F29. How do you like that Afterburner crank?

    Keep the steel rigid singlespeed and use this with front suspension geared. Both bikes are keepers!
