- Rigid won’t die? Show us yours!
Here is my (now sold, sadly… and I miss it) Niner One9 Scandium. I spend a lot of great times on this, did Charlies SS events down in Swanage and loved riding it. I spent a lot of money on upgrading the spec, full Niner RDO and some swanky SRAM carbon cranks et-all… Then I bought the CX’er and it sat in the shed not getting used… and I decided to sell it. It went to a good home, but I still miss it…

My sweet Stooge Speedball courtesy of Clink. Added a Thomson 6 bolt BMX stem and some Junker bars. Currently my only bike and makes me grin whenever I ride it. Just saving up for some more all rounder tyres as most of my riding is now on bridleways, towpaths and boring roads to link them up.
I’m a bit of a serial bike swapper normally, but the only thing that could tempt me to move this on is a Stooge Mk4. It really is a fun machinePosted 2 months agoRDL-82Member
Rigid might not want to die but I thought I was going to earlier! Nearly two years since I last rode. Destroyed me.

Nearly 2yrs since I last turned a crank on this thing. Lost the love for it. Need to decide whether I can find it again or just let it go. Was a tough ride though. Forgot how much fully rigid gives you a kicking! @ononebikes #ononeinbred #ss #29er #whoneedsgearsanyway #mtb #hardtail

Surly karate monkey.
Great bike, rides well, I’ve ran it with schwalbe big apples, nobby nic/rock razor, and surly knards.
Works well with all of those. At its best with knard front and rock razor rear ime.
Bought as a frameset, I built it with 2×10 slx/xt.
Slx brakes, dura ace barend shifters adapted to work like thumbies.
Would buy the same thing again.StefMcDefSubscriber
An old picture but it still looks pretty much like this, give or take a new dropper post, rear mud tyre and carbon Carnegies.
Couldn’t ride it for a long while as I had a shoulder injury that couldn’t take the jarring involved. Rode it for the first time in more than a year at the weekend and absolutely loved it. Just the ticket for winter mud plugging. Light as a feather and supremely chuck-about-able.Posted 2 months ago
@fudge, well it’s not a race bike, I have no idea what mine weighs, but my other mtb is an Ebike, so it feels light compared to that.Posted 2 months ago
I have no trouble keeping up with my mate, and we are more or less equally fit.
Sorry for the delay replying, work etc eh.
Edit: he rides a genesis day one 853 tourer/cx bike.2unfit2rideSubscriberexpendabarSubscriberlovewookieSubscriber
Rubbish pic of my Fisher superfly carbon, exotic carbon forks, flat bars and late 90’s fisher fish fins bar ends.
semi knob tyres make it a bit of a beast on mixed terrain as long as there’s no mud.
it’s slower than you’d think though. however, that may just be me…Posted 1 month ago
Tyre advice please
So I’ve a Salsa El Mariachi and firestarter fork arriving, I have a new set of Hope Pro 4’s on WTB Sti25 TCS rims. So what tyres would the stwers recommend.Posted 1 month ago
I’m just after a front with good side grip and fast rolling in 2.4 or 2.6 and a fast rear tyre in 2.4.
Not sure if anything in the Specialized sale is of use.
