- Rigid 29ers
My salsa el mariachi is rigid. Just built it as a winter bike and not take it any where rough
But it’s been fine tracks nicely just have to think a bit on some stuff
And even made of steel and Useing spare bits it’s 25 lb
My local riding tends to be as much Tarmac as woodlandPosted 7 years agosupercrabtreeMember
bought a kona unit 2 months ago as i fell in love with a rigid ss 26 but needed somthing to fit me better, was great for the local stuff in bristol. had to buy a set of 80mm travel forks after my first day at afan, my hands ached for two days after, decided it wasn’t worth my joints riding rigid on big boy stuffPosted 7 years ago
Fully rigid works great on a 29er. As said, it makes you think about your line choice again. For me, preferable to ploughing through with 5″ of travel each end soaking up bad line choices. Plus, there’s something great about getting up out the saddle when climbing.Posted 7 years ago
