    Hey SS1980 - I've got a Jabberwocky coming soon, and I notice the Surly Tuggnut on your drive side. First, I assume you installed this because the wheel was moving on that side? Second, do you have one on the non-drive side also? I've heard of the brake side moving when braking hard and the drive side moving when cranking hard. Did you experience one or both of these? Thanks!

    Here's my Eriken in rigid mode. I have since put the Reba back on it since I sold the fork. I'm thinking of getting another rigid fork for it.

    Here's a pic of the ChiTi Columbia from Christmas time. I've since changed out the stem, bars and brakes to a 120x15 Thomson stem, Jones bars, and Paul Comp. CrossStop brakes. It's one of the two best riding bikes I've ever owned (along with my Strong). I've stripped those hideous decals from the fork and replaced them with some subtle Columbia decals too.

    here's our shop's demo FrankenRig, complete with price tag. Franken because it was just a frame when we got it...pieced together with decent stuff just laying around. It's about 24lbs.

    The pace fork has been removed and the surly for re-installed. That fork was a pain in the A$$, definitely not worth the weight savings.

    I see a trend...

    Great bikes! I see a trend; a lot of us 29er owners have at least two of them.

    Here's my main rides, kind of pedestrian compared to all these other great looking bikes!

    1X9 Flight 29er, around 25 pounds. Insanely fun now that I have a chain-checker on it.

    Monocog SS is about 27 with hbars.

    Seems kind of retro, I started out with a Hardrock and a Fisher AL1 rigids for several years but the handling with the big wheel are making my riding a lot faster and more fun. I've noticed rigids ride more quietly than other types. Take the headphones off and its a great experience!

    Almost never ride my 26 inch bikes anymore. My other Redline is the 26 inch monocog for commuting. For my riding, these Redline frames just feel right.

    Wide Velocity Blunt rims with Geax Tires and Michelin latex tubes make for a surprisingly supple ride.

    The second one was fine for the first few weeks and then it started to creak. So I removed the crown race re-installed it, cleaned and regreased everything and it still creaked. Put the Surly fork back on and silence.

    I have heard of other people riding these trouble free, so it was a dissapointment. I guess I will put a 2.5 on the front and probably get the same suppleness.

    It's been posted many times before, but I have added a few new parts, so I will post again. Black Sheep Ti, rigid, 17.4 pounds. I also have a new steel Quiring frame on the way.

    Where did you get the Black Ops fork? Thanks!

    I've had a few along the way...

    1) Waltworks (still rigid, and still own it)
    2) Slingshot (sold)
    3) Retrotec (sold)
    4) Blacksheep (Mikesee if you mind me using one of your pics let me know. I haven't taken any myself yet). The only change from how Mike had it set up as pictured here is the stem, which is now a Willits instead of the Moots pictured. Oh yeah, and the tires and gearing are more suited to my local trails now.

    It was a wicked good deal, so sceptically bought this to try 29'ers.



    After a month, I'm sure glad I did!

    My new Kula 2 -9. Sorry about the schmutz on the camera lens - not much has changed from this pic. I will be adding a Reba shortly though.. don't worry my Karate Monkey and Walt are still (and will be) rigid.

    my waltworks

    the only change i've done since building my walt up is switching the stem to a negative rise. the ride is awesome! weighs in at about 19.5lbs.

    I've got the Poplock set!!!

    Alright, alright... I know this is a thread for RIGID 29ers but I just bought this bike a few hours ago and I'm too excited about it to keep it to myself.

    If it makes you feel any better, I made ABSOLUTELY SURE that the remote poploc was engaged. That counts, right??

    It's wet 'cause it just had a bath. I visit enough to know that Rainman et al. have some sort of "dirty bike phobia".

    It's a little tricky....

    - When you post, click on 'Upload Images' button (towards the bottom of the page) and a new window will pop up (make sure you have pop-up blockers turned off!).
    - Click on on the 'Browse' button and navigate to the image you want to use. Double-click it. This should insert the "path" to the image in the small pop-up window.
    - Repeat the former step for each image you have
    - Click on the 'Upload' button in the small window (next to the last browse button)
    - The small window should disappear and the names of each image will appear in the main window above the 'Upload Images' button you originally pressed. (It may take some time depending on how many images you want to upload, how big they are and your connection speed.)
    - Click on the "Submit Reply" button

    Note: I don't believe the images appear in the "Preview Post" view

    Hope this helps!

    (Can you tell I want to see more Rigid 29ers?? )

    The ride quality and specs were spot on so I took the colour for granted.

    The faux wood decorating foil I had still lying around and made a nice match
    with the Brooks leather so I gave it a try.

    Another thing is that the carbon fork is too much of a high tech image for this old man.

    Actually, the seat bolt wasn't tight enough when I went riding and I didn't have a multitool with me.

    I just really dig the Thudbuster, it sucks up those little rocks and roots and makes it easy to keep laying the power down. Makes my back feel better after riding hard for an hour or two. Not good for big hits but it's just a seatpost after all. Maybe a dually would be just as good but when I stand up this bike really jumps and the duel sussy bikes I've ridden have been better at....how do they say...."sitting and spinning?" Plus it's simple, cheap, and light, gotta love that.

    So without the cover my legs rub on the bumper and holes form in my shorts....with the cover on they slide and do OK.

    I think shiggy's point was that if you have a suspension seatpost, then the bike isn't a rigid and therefore shouldn't be posted here...
    now the trick question : is a Slingshot with rigid fork considered a rigid?

    i'll have to take some better pics.

    fork rides good altho i don't have much to compare it to. the blue fork has much more clearance than the other forks on the black/grey and pink bikes. that WW LT has mucho room in the blue fork and in the pink bike it barely fits.

    Thanks mwills. I've got another Soulcraft Holy Roller/ fork on order, just wondering wha the ride is like. I suspect it may be on the stiffer side of the spectrum given the unicrown design. Mine is going to be 80mm corrected though, so it may be a bit softer... We'll see.

    my blue fork sure looks beefier, because of the added width and added tire clearance. given the appearance, i can't really tell any difference between my forks. i would agree that a corrected fork (longer blades) should ride a bit softer.

    did i read that somewhere around here? that you were doing a drop bar frame? if you want my notes lemme know...

    goofy angle. i'll work on that.
    the handposition in the drop is 50-60mm below the saddle. about the same, a bit lower than my flat bar bikes. worked with soulcraft to fit this bike as close as possible as my others. worked just like i was hoping. i'll put my hands on the hoods about 1% of the time on a ride and the tops maybe .01%.

    That's nice and all, but the rider behind you went TOPLESS!!
    Authorities speculate that speed may have been a factor. They are also holding gravity and inertia for questioning.

    Yeah, pink is fast. I won 1st SS and overall on it yesterday in a 6 hour solo. That was my first race on it (and 1st suspension-less ride longer than an hour).

    My urban identity crisis Monocog. Profile BMX cranks, Odyssey chainring, 28/17 gearing (I might go a bit higher), Hope Pro II rear hub with 36 hole Rhyno Lite. Schwalbe Big Apples and Avid BB7 brakes. Oh yeah, and ODI Longnecks!

    Future plans are to replace the front skewer with a bolt-on, if not a more radical upgrade of the front wheel (trying to keep my spending under control). And maybe some different handlebars. I need to go check out some different styles in person.

    you may want to go with

    a really short, block type stem (downhill) if you really want to make it look like an urban crusher. yea that frame/fork is so versatile and bulletproff. i have one as well and i've configured it in a similar manner as well as a back up cross bike with light wheels and drop bars. cool!

    I've considered it, but then I realized that it would mostly be for looks. Block stems are heavier and is all that mass really necessary? I don't think I've ever heard of broken stems being a very common problem.

    OK - Here's my Raleigh XXIX that I changed over to a 2 x 9 for the Telluride-to-Moab trip. Got home last night. This is the bike up against a tree a few minutes before the afternoon thundershower, Columbine Hut in this instance! The bike worked fantastic for the trip - very comfortable and it ran the Ute Creek Trail a couple of days later with 30+ lbs of gear on it and let me ride almost the entire trail... Except for one section of super-steep climb on one of the loose chutes, a couple of dabs on the first rocky descents into the creek and one very large get-off jamming down a mildly technical section (tree branch snagged my bar-end and I got to do my Superman impression for a second or so before leaving DNA on the rocks...) Changing it back to SS in a day or two but I sure liked this set-up. May have to get another to keep it rigid and geared...
