Going to build up a Rigid geared 29er for longer "mixed" rides (sustrans tracks, bridleways, singletrack through the woods etc)
Looking at either an Inbred with a Salsa Cro-Moto/Fargo fork or a Karate Monkey Frame.
Plus for the Inbred is that it's cheaper. But it only has one set of bottle bosses and rear tyre clearance on the vertical dropout bikes is a bit tight.
Plus for the Karate Monkey is that has 2 sets of bottle bosses, lots of tyre clearance, could be run singlespeed if I decided to go that route in the future.
Anything else worth considering?
The Salsa El Mariachi looks great but is just a bit too expensive at £500 for a frame and a fork.
