I ride the 69er single speed version (2009) .
I really like the way this bike handles so I thought of adding the 3*9 version to the stable as my geared bike.
So I went and took a parking lot test and noticed it ain't really a geared version of my single speed.
First, the frame looks differant. The welds are smooth and unseen on my single speed while on the 3*9 frame the welds are conventional welds.
Second, the bike felt differant, a quick look on Trek's website shows that these 2 bike have differant geo's .
Also these 2 bike are priced very similar ( I think the SS version is even a little more expensive), so I cant help thinking, is the 69er 3*9 frame a cheaper version of the single speed frame? are the 2 frames the same quality ?
Anyone ride these 2 bikes and can share ride quality experiance ?
