    29" singlespeed frame suggestions

    OK, besides the Surly KM, what else is out there?

    Want it for pure off road use; winter / training / main squeeze bike

    Requirements:
    -Steel
    -Disc mounts
    -Rigid
    -What am I forgetting?

    Opinions are [email protected]$$H0735 .......so let's hear them!

    Also, do they make 29" studded tires? If so, were can I get them?

    Yup...

    Take a look at the VooDoo Dambala. Sliding vert dropouts, looks pretty nice.
    If you're going to do disc brakes, you could use a disc 1x1 with 29" wheels. Just an idea.
    No one, to my knowledge, makes a "true" 29" studded tire, although Nokian makes a 'cross width (40mm, I think?) studded winter fresh set o' rubbers.

    Got a Spot on order

    Expecting my Spot 29er SS in next week. can't say enough great things about Michael and Jessica at Spot.

    Semi custom frames at a great price. www.spotbikes.com

    Also, IF, Gunnar, Vicious, Curtlo and many others make a SS 29er.

    Spicer will make a custom Ti for less than most of the stell builders.

    Do a search on the 29er board.

    Ferrous looks nice! I take it they are based outta England?

    The Spot website is being updated....

    The Vulture site brings up red X's.....

    The VooDoo looks cool as well.

    Vicious Cycles makes one too.

    Mr. Wojcik is right down the road, I might have to pay him a visit.

    Thanks for the input.

    A 29in Ti Inbred is currently winging it's way to the UK for US on-one rider Chris Cosentino to ride as SSMM, a week Saturday.

    Can't wait :-)

    Do not forget about some of the nicest, not cheap, hand-made custome frames out there, Willits, http://www.dirtragmag.com/articles/a...=stuff_reviews.

    Wes Williams (owner/fabricator/welder) was my neighbor in Crested Butte and I can personally atest to his awesome work and HE was the one who started the revolution of the 29" wheel.

    Expensive yes, worth it? You decide. I tell you what though the lucky SOB that owns this bike will probably never see another like it, anywhere.

    A bike by any other name is still a bike.

    Steve is finishing the drawings on my 29er EBB SS in steel...I have a MARVELOUS custom Ti 29er from Titus; just can't swing the $$ for another, and I did want to try a steel bike. Steve is quite knowledgable on the frame-building side, and really wants to set everything up precisely to fit the rider...we are finishing the layout, and THEN have to sort out tubing, but that's what custom is all about.

    My suggestion: call and/or email around, get a feel for the builders; DON'T rush in, but trust your sense about WHO you are dealing with.

    Yet more 29" options

    Okay so you're already flagged up Vicious Cycles which saves me having to do it but what about Kelly Bike Co.'s Ro Sham Bo and DeSalvo Cuctom Cycles Mountain frame built to take 29" wheels. Both are rigid and both can be ordered with disc mounts and, of course, both are steel.

    Ferrous is based in England.

    That is why all the headtube badges say Fe England.
