    Idea! Tideace 29er monstercross build

    Hi

    i need a bike for rough road... in Brazil don't have gravel roads like a carpet...has a lot of irregularities on terrain, and 42mm tires need a bit high pressure..

    i started from 29er tideace carbon frame, the geometry is comfortable, the frame is light.. The fit is adjusted for my fit..

    with flatbar I used 85mm stem.. to use with drop flared bar I used a 70mm stem to compensation reach drop bar..

    build specs:

    frame tideace 29er size 16inch

    fork: costelo (but is the same bxt) 15mm with ac 480mm

    handlebar: alpkit spitfire with 16 degree flare x 440/460mm

    wheelset - crest mk3 with novatec hubset

    tires - kenda saber pro 29x2.05 with tubeless

    drivetrain rival 22 shifters, apex1 long cage, cassette 9-44, crankset s2200 + 34t doval chainring

    brakes trp spyre

    the setup is very comfortable, and 29er tires possbility low pressure to increase the comfy

    did you have to go one size smaller frame to account for the drop bars or do you normally ride a 16in frame?

    Looks nice! Just wondering I thought the definition of Monstercross meant you keep front suspension as well. Or maybe it's just that you use and MTB frame with dropbars?

    my normal frame is 17.5.. i choose 16 to compensate longer toptube, with 70mm stem + 70mm dropbar reach, zero setback seatpost, and forward saddle..

    initially i had buy wrong size.. and I use a longer stem and setback seatpost .. now its all right

    looks nice to me.. I like so much how it's rides..

    short chainstay, rigid fork changes the handling to best..

    the advantage to start the project from 29er frame is the possible front suspension.. i think to put with 80mm travel.. maybe.. but I felt well without suspension.. but i don't discard this idea...

    gravel plus uses narrow tires... lacking in comfort... 29x2.0 offers more comfort to ride without suspension..

    off course the bike is slower than front suspension.. but the is the price of fun..

    no regrets for while.. lol

    I recommended to try rigid fork for a time... play with tire pressure.. tubeless is obrigattory
