    Available???
    All right folks, I was just wondering if we could assemble a giant list of available 29" bikes?

    I've been poking around the board and just kind of have a running list in my head, but I have had a hard time trying to find bikes outside of the ones mentioned on this board. So if you guys could help me out that would be great. I see this great little ad over to my left for Wily cycles, but other than that nobody really advertises their 29ers. Thanks in advance.

    There are a few lists out there, probably also in the FAQ thread, second from the top.

    Most brands are obviously custom right now, as about all custom builders offer 29"ers, and only a few mainstream builders have shown the balls to gamble on this new fad.

    But do feel free to re-post any previous list on here to be amended upon/deleted from.

    One deletion to start with : OX Brand seems to be non-existing anymore. I hope the same is not the case for the ultimate and formost 29" maker : Willits Brand.

    New additions will soon be our new sponsor Niner Bikes, also Salsa Cycles, Orbea seems to have joined, Mudbats seems to be intending to help us out, etc.

    Here is another aspect of the original question that I've been mulling around. OK, so are there any 29ers that come fully packaged for those of us who are on a strict budget and don't want to go through the hastles of ordering every little concievable part down to the cables?

    Go ahead, post away

    :rolleyes:

    Well, you didn't specify a buget, but the GF Rig or X-Caliber would be an affordable prebuilt option. Also, Excel sports (www.excelsports.com) has a Surly KM full build kit option.

    Ahhh unfortunitly with me being just out of school, again, budget is generally a BIG concern. Working at a bike shop helps sometimes though... :D

    Hopefully I can pull some strings...
