I have fallen in love with my Swift, it is the bike of choice now whenever I go on a ride. It seems to do everything well but as I'm running it fully rigid I'm not so sure how it will stand up (or rather how my body will stand up) to 12 hour events for which I usually use my Superlight.
I got to thinking that a full suss 29er might just be the business but having looked at the Niner, the Fisher Superfly and the SC offerings, can't escape from the fact that they are seriously expensive. Are there any frames/bikes out there which are more realistically priced and are also suitable for racing?
There is of course another question... do you need a full suss 29er or would a HT fit the bill instead?
