    Can someone recommend a SS entry bike for under $1000?

    I just picked up the Kona Unit for about $800 new. I absolutely love it! Also looked at the Haro Mary and Redline Monocog Flight.

    Not any more standard than they are on squishy bikes ...

    kinda... that's what sells so that's what most options are. IMHO 29" wheels feel better for SS (momentum is crucial and 29ers do have an advantage there) and they also are more comfy for hardtails and especially for rigid bikes (which many SS options are as well), so I don't think the popular opinion is just blindly following a trend.
