    Finally! I finally get to post on this thread. After lurking and drooling over some of these bikes I finally have 2-9er of my own; and it's rigid too. Here name is Maddison "Maddy".

    SE Stout 29er

    I kind of don't feel worthy but here you go...I have only been riding it for about 2 weeks...needs a new seat...and maybe an adjustable stem to get better rider geo but I am happy with it. I intend on using it for the first year just as city cruiser until I can get disc brakes and eventually a multi gear set up. I was really surprised how similar it was to the Redline Monocog.

    Don't knock it...

    @NeedsA29er- Don't just relegate that Stout to townie use just yet. You'd be surprised at how much you might like it in the dirt. V-brakes are plenty unless you have loooong downs, and you'll be able to ride more than you think if you give it some trail time!

    Is this one of those "trying to compensate situations"? haha I'm just kidding Yes you DO need a 2-9er, you'd be surprised what those things can do.

    I hope to some time soon but I barely got my road legs about me right now! I need some time to build up leg strength and decrease fatigue. I haven't ridden much in the recent years and I realize how stupid it was to go so long and not ride. I have little stamina for a bike ride that is too long...especially on a 29er SS. I need to get more short trips under my belt before I start tackling some dirt trails! I would also like discs for that purpose as well. The last time I took a bike thru the woods...the V Brakes got wet and I ended up in a river!!! Not kidding. You know when those V Brakes get wet they don't like to stop too good!

    Don't know if it qualifies as a beauty or porn, but it's my fixed gear 29er. The fork is getting pink, and I'm still waiting for new hubs, Fifteen.G crankset, belt and custom belt cogs.

    After finally getting to some trails, I was AMAZED at how much faster I was on the rigid compared to my Marin Wolfie FS 26"! I was a little slower on the road to the trailhead, but once I was there I was literally flying up hills and coasting easily over all but the gnarliest roots.

    I appreciated the good grips more than once (for control) and again when I cracked my after-pedal beerski and my hands didn't feel (too..) pounded-upon.

    I spent lots of time out of the seat, popped the front wheel up over most of the ugly roots, and just cruised on the flats. I'm into this bike for about $450 (including decals..), which I only got to "test" a 29er. Verdict: WIN!

    Drevil: Full rigid titanium single speeds for the win. However, there needs to be something said about a couple or more bikes serving the same purpose (gotta stack the $$$ to sport that redundancy)

    All: great job, keep 'em coming, there are some dialed rides out there in MTBR community~!

    Well...they all sorta have their own flavor. The Jones is the fearless bomber, the H-Bar Chester is the lightweight racer, and the drop-bar Chester is for fixie fun - and although I haven't had a chance to yet - long, loaded gravel grinders.

    The only thing stock is the frame. I took this right before I right before I broke y arm riding and haven't been back on it, and I had just build the wheels with P35 rims.

    Nothing special really. Needs new tires and I want to go tubeless. Currently dreaming up a new wheelset (thinking Bontrager Dusters with Hope Hubs).

    Possibly my last fully rigid

    I'm pending shoulder surgery next Thursday, from a crash Tue night. Have a feeling the Doc's are going to advice against me ever using rigid forks again.

    I just got back from having shoulder and neck x-rays because I'm getting nerve pain down my right arm (which has a clavicale plate from a bike crash).

    My doctor has also referred me to a nuerologist and she suggested that I stop riding until we have resolved the issue, after a brief pause she continued "but you won't do that will you because I ask the impossible"...

    I love my GP, she's so understanding

    Here was my ER diagnosis- 1- Fracture Scapula including Depressed/Displaced Articular Surface of Glenoid and Inferior & Posterior Scapula

    2- Fractured Clavicle

    That's sweet. I was thinking this morning that it would be cool if Curtis made a 29'er (from reading a copy of Dirt circa 2003 and seeing a Curtis ad). I hoped yours was a 29'er...

    Update on my monkey...a few upgrades.





    Bigger tires with more aggressive tread pattern & lightweight, grippier rotors. Now with a little toe overlap because of the new tires but nothing serious. Oh, & XT skewers.

    Love this bike!

    Nice - how's the combo working? http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?t=641845

    Black KMs are the heat! I may put an ODIS on mine, yearning for a segmented fork for a certain aesthetic appeal.

    Thanks! I haven't really tested the monkey with this new combo, only on the nearest dirt park, but they seem very grippy without being draggy (if that's even a word). The Wolverines are super up front but i slipped a couple of times on the Nano, the combo on my Tucson. The Prowler on the monkey seems more grippy. I'll be testing this combo on monday on very muddy, rocky & technical trails. Will tell you how it goes.

    What's an ODIS & "segmented fork"?

    ODIS is the Vassago rigid fork. The Karate Monkey for (and others that look like it) are unicrown. A segmented fork has the two fork leg tubes connecting to the steerer tube base with small segments of tubing. http://www.dirtragmag.com/print/arti...=stuff_reviews ODIS and On One come to mind for commercial, off-the-shelf segmented forks.

    Jack of all trades... master of quite a few...

    Always evolving... sorry some geared and suspended content but El Mariachi is all single speed these days and the squishy fork was a one ride and no thank you! - you gotta crawl before you can walk.

    I really like this bike. There are some things I wish were different, but I don't have the money or time to address them.

    P.S. I think it looks dorky in this picture, but I don't know why...

    new to me at least, it's an 08.
    niner fork, wtb speediscs with nanos, juicy ultimates, bonty carbon post, ti railed flite transam, my beloved ea70 stem and scandium risers.
    one crankarm's missing because the pedal's seized, steerer's not cut because I'm still playing with the stem and spacers.
    all magic geared up at 32x15.

    Thanks Man. I knew it was going to be light just because of the parts I wanted to ride but I was suprised. I guess since it's SO close to sub 14lbs I should get some Scrub rotors Huh? ;-)

    You could probably lose those last 30 grams by trimming your brake hoses. Nice ride.

    Custom belt SS

    Here is my freshly rebuilt Fuji tahoe pro 29er with my custom belt drive conversion. I machined a 6061 aluminum coupler, split the frame, welded it in, reheat treated the frame, and powdercoated it. 21 lbs with crappy wheelset, new wheels should shave almost 2lbs off.

    08 Fuji Tahoe 29er pro frame with custom 6061 splice for belt install, powdercoated white
    Nuke proof Carbon rigid fork
    Matrix Carbon bar stem combo
    ESI grips
    Avid Juicy 5 brakes with 160mm rotors
    Crank creek headset
    FSA v-drive cranks powdercoated white

    C'mon man, that's not an SS mtb...& not even rigid!

    Well, since you're a mod & it's a nice bike, i'll let it slide.

    By the way...singletrack going to work? That's cool!

    Good job! metrotuned full rigid ss 29er



    above: metrotuned cocaine white full rigid ss 29er

    The XXIX was fun and rode superbly with the 420 a-to-c non-suspension corrected (a 26" 80mm fork) carbon fiber magnesium fork (Pace RC31). It was a huge improvement over the factory unicrown rigid steel fork and a welcome improvement in climbing and agility versus the 80mm Fox F29 RLC.

    Damn guys...you got me rethinking going rigid. My first mountain bike, though it was a 26er, was a 1995 Trek 7000. I rode rigid for 8 yrs and had no problem with it. I think I may have to go at it again....

    I did the same thing in the early 90"s rigid 26er, I swore I would never go back especially after they did away with elastomer forks and moved to air.

    A 29er with some high volume tubeless tires makes a huge difference. I am 18 years older now and I ride more gnarly trials and I dont feel nearly as beat up as I did back then after a ride.

    Go for it!

    Yeah, i'm looking at a Redline Monocog Flight 29er or Surly Karate Monkey right now. They get great reviews and won't break the bank.
    But I do hear you on the larger tires.

    BTW, who has the best prices??

    Here's my beater, as seen elsewhere. Motobecane with OEM headset, cranks, b/b, and wheels- everything else has been upgraded from the parts pile. About 24 pounds. I use it for street thrashing and the occasional dirt jump or beer run. \m/ \m/

    I've had both the Flight and KM (still do in fact). Both great rides - can't go wrong either way. Outdoor Outfitters does pricematch and they were great to deal with when I got my KM.

    My New Karate Monkey!!!!!!

    Disclaimer: I am super pumped about this so I apologize if you see it here, in the SS forum, and the Surly forum. But damn I love this bike!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Well, thanks to DougID I have a new (to me) Karate Monkey frame and fork, and I just finished the build. What a fantastic bike!!!!!!

    Didn’t have time to hit a real trail yet, but took it on the trails behind my house.
















    Best of all, I lost almost 3 lbs on this bike from my last one (lighter tires, no disc brakes, lighter stem, etc… ). Comes in just a hair over 24 lbs.

    Not sure mine qualifies as "fully rigid" with a Thudbuster ST post on it. Regardless, I've been enjoying riding around on it this fall season which is actually very dry this year after one of the muddiest and poor trail conditions summer that I can remember.

    2003 KM size XL (1st time it has been SS for me in all those years via a 29T ring and 16T cog)

    Blue collar...

    When I moved to CO I thought that riding Doo-Doo brown fixed would be far fetched. Well, I was wrong. Love this bike, and I'll ride it til she gives up.

    p.s. there is a freewheel on there as well...

    8 years as a sailor...just kidding, bout half an hour. A series of over hand knots started and finished with a round turn and 2 half hitches, bitter end melted and tucked. Use 550 cord, but pull the core out and only use the outer layer.

    You sound like a boatswain's mate, if I ever heard one!
    I have some 550 experience w/ making lanyards and such, just haven't tried any fancywork yet.
    Thanks for the info!

    2011 Surly KM
    Bought the frame in early November as a birthday present to myself,
    and, to replace my 1994 Cannondale F500.
    I had tested a few 29ers out @ the LBS, and liked them very much.
    Chose the KM for it's versatility, and good reviews on mtbr.
    177.5mm XT square taper cranks, White Industries hubs, and Avid
    Arch-Rival v-brakes came off the F500. Everything else is new.
    Currently running 34/16 gearing for street, but plan on running it dingle
    with 31/19 as my offroad gearing. I'm really enjoyin' this bike!!!

    very nice Karate Monkey! looks great with the brown Brooks too...who would've thought?

    I'm still looking at getting another KM since they lowered the standover, but can't decide...I loved my OG campstove green one but felt it was a bit small for me and the standover on the XL was too much at the time...

    decisions decisions

    Thanks for the compliment appleSSeed!
    The Brooks is an Aged B17 with a little Doc Martens leather balm applied to the top.
    I was a little uncertain as far as how it would look, but I'm really happy with how it turned out.
    I got my frame and fork for $350 from the LBS.
    That made the decision REALLY easy for me!
    I'm 5'10", with a 32" inseam, and the medium frame fits me perfectly.
    Now, put your decisions to rest and go get one!
