    As per title…I converted to 29er HT at the start of the year and I have a 26er HT that won’t ever be ridden again that will be morphing into a cheap-ish 1×9 rigid 29er build over the next couple of weeks.

    Idea’s and inspiration required please guys 😀

    Cheers.

    I’m going through the same process by the way but have settled on a Singular Swift – just trying to get the cash together :o)

    This is my Unit and its been great, I do fancy a change though and shortlisted are the Cotic Solaris or a Chinese carbon job.

    If Angus Young and Animal off the Muppet Show could be distilled into one bike =

    Ok not the cheapest option, but honestly, if fun and handling are in the VFM equation it’s well worth the £.

    Certainly some inspiring stuff, especially in forza’s mtbr link. 8)

    Fenred,

    Nice to here from you!

    I would keep an eye out for a nice Scandal frame to start your project.

    here is my Scandal again! 😉

    This bike weighs nothing compared to my full bouncer and flies up hills. The 1 x 10 set up works brilliantly and the full rigid makes the rocky, off road stuff interesting.

    Here it is at 1500 feet!

    Tazzy,

    How ya doin?

    We really ought to get some new stuff, but I here you might be getting a JJ, in titanium I hope! 😉 It’s like watching repeats of Only fools and horses

    bish – Loving that monkey!

    tk – How you doing mate? Scandal was on the shopping list but bought khani’s GF x-cal frame (even lighter) to kick the project off. Just waiting on delivery of exotic carbon forks to get things rolling….Should be a nice light build! V inspired by your “that blue” scandal tho 8)

    tazzy – They are all just mental :mrgreen:

    good thanks chap. Yep a space frame is imminent, not sure I can let go of the blue one though…is two jeffs greedy?

    Greedy? and bikes? does not compute? 🙂

    I would say, if money allows, you should have a new bike regularly!

    Talk me out of buying a Karate Monkey.

    I don’t need another bike. Do I?

    Cheap as chips here though…

    My SIR.9…

    It’s predecessor in different guises…

    IMAG0200 by pten2106, on Flickr

    In a way I really miss the Inbred, for what it cost it was a fab bike. The Niner is nice though. Very light & so comfy. Did Cannocks Monkey Trail on it tonight, clearly not the right tool for it, but held its own. 🙂

    Pace rc129, currently with 1×9

    takisawa2 , I’ve seen other pics of your SIR 9, front end on, can you post please? *draaaaawwwwls*

    Edit- SS shep, that Pace looks amazing…A good job well done!
