Recommend me a tough 29er hardtail
Still, who would want to carry 20 kilos of mud on their wheels up Ditchling?
*shuffles feet and mumbles*
tbh, you see lots of everything round here.
If I had one bike to do it all it’d be a lovely 29er steel frame with slidey dropouts and I’d run it SS/rigid all winter and slap gears and a sus fork on it for longer/hillier summer rides.
I’ve got a 26″ steel Curtis frame – that as a 29er would be great.
There’s a few local frame builders too if you wanted to go the custom route but I don’t know what they charge.Posted 3 years agoteadrinkerSubscriber
As a 29er rider and also a similar block size to you, If I had that money I would go down the Stanton Sherpa route.Posted 3 years ago
Right. Am going to bite the bullet and buy a 29er.
Mrs AJT and I are moving to Brighton within the next year and everyone down that way seems to have a waggon-wheel baby-head roller.
Steel / Carbon / Ti
Max £1000 for a frame, £2000 for a bike.
Slack – 68-67 degrees head angle, ideally.
Can take a bit of a wallop with a 16 stone block on it.
What can you folks recommend?

I remember when a thread like his would have spiralled into a wheel size bitch fight within three or four posts. Is STW finally getting over itself?
Anyway, FWIW I’d go for a Parkwood if you’re on a budget or a Buzzard, ROS9, QH, Canfield or similar if you’re not. I’m not really sold on the Sherpa. Of course, you *actually* need a Stooge.Posted 3 years ago
