- The Let’s See Your 29er Hardtails/ Rigids Thread
My voodoo hardtail, only got back into mtb last year after about 16 yrs off the bike!
Only had a small budget at the time but in all fairness its a top bike, rides really well and will do the job until the time comes for adding a full suss to the stable! hopefully this link works could get the pic to load earlier!

Here’s my Salsa El Mariachi. I’m no purist, I like tech bikes and tech riding, but this bike is brilliant for covering miles across the mountains on and off road. If I had to only have one bike it’d be this. Possibly I’d keep a suitable sus fork just in case though.
It’s currently broken, but it’s being repaired and restored. I’ll never let this bike go, if it fails beyond repair I’ll have another one made just like it!Posted 4 months ago
I read that bit about cryptic posts after my post sorry..
Also, quote doesn’t work very well..
my blue one: it’s a 2017 Kona Unit, small, One23 steel 780mm bars with some sort of rise and a bit of a back sweep, spec enduro bolt on grips, some cheap charge wheels from a cooker I think to make it a 29er (was a 27+) tubeless converted, using non tubeless Maxxis Ardents, (they work fine).
Brooks Cambium seat, Salsa QR seat clamp, GX1x11 gears, SuperStar Nano Evo X pedals.
I’m fat, slow and hugely out of shape, but I live somewhere quite flat, and I get out when I can. the 29 wheels seem better for riding to and from the places I actually get off road, than the 27+ setup did.Posted 4 months agobreadcrumbSubscriber

Frame bought off Ton for much cheapness. Originally built this up to tow my son but I like it that much I’ve not ridden anything else. It doubles up as a commuter bike if the weather is bad.
Genesis tarn forks. It’s been built from spares, it’s old school 3×10, inner tubes, bar ends. Total cost sub £400. Bargain!
Currently waiting for brant to release a new 29er alliminium Scandal for me to transfer everything over and upgrade a few bits and bobs.Posted 4 months ago
