best SS hardtail money can buy?
I have a bit of redundancy and was wondering what people would recommend as the best single speed hardtail if money was no object.
I have the SS bug in a serious way having four at present.
For MTB I have an old converted kona cindercone (97) and a 2007 kona unit 2-9.
for road I have a converted crosser (alan Topcross frame) and a SE Lager.
I like the feel of the cone so something along those lines would be good.
As money is no object would it be best to go Ti?Posted 9 years agoPikeBN14Member

niner sir9. highly praised, even by uk mag mtbreview.
Good luck getting hold of one, I ordered a Godzilla Green on on 8th September, the estimated delivery time being 6 weeks, but to ring for a more accurate estimate. Was told 2 weeks – well chuffed.
STILL WAITING NOW, should be here early bext month, (it will now be Rootbeer in colour) but I’ve heard that a few times already!!Posted 9 years agoRudeBoyMember
I’d like a Jones, for riding round town, and leaving locked up outside places.
I’m sure it would ride really well around the streets, from what I’ve read about it, and it looks so gash, no-one would want to nick it…
Oh, and you could stick a basket on’t front, for when you go shopping.Posted 9 years agosinglespeedstuSubscriber
Only got one Sheep now. :o(
And yes the Jones is head and sholders above it in ride quality.
And you can stick a basket on the front if you’re that way enclined….. 😛
He was asking about a hardtail though and as the Jones custom list is closed it doesn’t matter how much money you’ve got to play with you ain’t getting one.Posted 9 years agoPikeBN14Member

PikeBN14, sorry to hear that. i’ve had one for 2 years, i think it will be worth the wait.
Came very close to getting my money back, but in the email discussion I had with the supplier he mentioned another review in the Jan What Mountain Bike mag, so I got it and decided to hang on, everyone that knows anything about them say the same thing! They have now gone up £170 so that was another reason for not cancelling!!Posted 9 years agoepicycloSubscriber
Don’t rule out the Genesis IO. It has very good handling and punches well above its weight.
You can get the complete bike on special for £330! Spend the money on better brakes and wheels, and use what’s left over to take you and the bike to somewhere interesting for a riding holiday 🙂Posted 9 years agoSimon ESubscriber
A mate of mine tried the Genesis Altitude bikes and thought they were great value. He reckoned they felt like a nice take on classic Kona geometry.
Someone has already mentioned the iO but there’s also the 853 and Ti. Both are available as complete bikes or frameset. Don’t appear to have horizontal dropouts, though.Posted 9 years ago
