    Rig available in SoCal.

    Switchback cycles in Orange, CA has a medium rig, currently being built by Chatty Matt. If you're interested in buying it and having it shipped to you they'd be open to that. If you need contact info let me know and I'll hook you up with the right people.

    Does this mean other Rigs (i.e., mine) are hitting the stores soon? I can't breathe...might call in sick and wait at the LBS...

    Hey are you working tomorrow? I think I'll be finished by 11 or 12. COTA says Horse Ridge and Pine Mountain are both yellow light. You want to ride?

    Saw this thread and immediately got on the phone with my friendly neighborhood bike shop. Turns out they attended a big Trek/Fisher sales meeting last week where all the attending retailers were told that the 29ers - including the Rig - would start rolling out in full scale in a week or two.

    I thought this day would never come, the way I've been waiting.

    Hey there! Padre indicated that you did not like your Fisher FS 29'er. What model did you have and why didn't you like it?

    Thanks

    Hey-

    Yeah, I had a sugar for a few months....built it up with parts I had laying around. I was hoping that I'd be able to get used to riding gears and suspension at the same time...not gonna happen. I ended up selling it and getting a rigid moots instead...much better suited to my riding style.

    As for the bike...it was alright, nothing to exciting and no major drawbacks. It pedalled well and descended well, I just couldn't get used to it.

    Hope that helps,

    Thanks! As a general rule do you just like HT's better the FS rigs?

    You got it....I have yet to meet a full suspension frame or a suspension fork that I really like:-)! (not that I don't like them in general, they're just not for me)

    Has anyone had a chance to ride or sit on a Rig yet? Looking at the specs - the TT is pretty long. Med measures in a 24" - small at 23.2".

    I normally ride a med Surly (23" TT). I wonder what size Rig would fit me.
