- Inbred 29er for kielder 100
Did it last year on a Ragley TD-1 and the year before on a 26″ Inbred. Rigid and singlespeed both times.
The singletrack at Kielder is very rocky and bumpy. On some of the descents I had to stop part-way down to allow the cramp in my hands to go. My hands were swollen and tender for a few days afterwards.
For endurance stuff, a 29er is definitely best. I only have two rides on a suspension fork; one would help at Kielder with the bumpy stuff, but no idea if the weight penalty and bounciness would be worth the trade off.
I’ll be rigid and SS again this year, but hoping for some carbon bars this time.Posted 7 years ago
