I ride a full-rigid 26" Inbred SS, but I'm thinking about a 29er... What about the two frames mentioned above? I like the Paragon dropout of the P 29, but that's on the heavy side, and the frame alone costs more than the complete build of the Fortitude. But what about the weight of the Fortitude? (Frame, especially.) And the non-supsension 445mm forks?
I'd like to build/buy a race specific machine, not a tourer.
Any other options?
