- TRAIL SL 29ER 3 SS
Yep I bought one on Ride2work scheme and after riding a ‘hack bike’ Curtis S1 last winter.
Not rode a massive amount but really impressed with it so far. Am 6’5″ so went for XL model. Gearing is a bit undergeared so changed to 33:18 which is spot on. Brakes seem ok stop but will probably require a fair bit of cable adjustment to cope with pad wear. BB seems okay so far with no slippage.
Nice to slow things down a bit and take a step back from ragging an Evil Sov round Lee Quarry, it feels like a bike you had from younger years where you just go out and pedal around and explore a bit, simple times sorta bike.Posted 4 years ago
Considering one of these: http://www.cannondale.com/gbr/2013/bikes/mountain/hardtail-29er/trail-sl-29er/trail-sl-29er-3-ss
Anyone got one? How’d you find it? It would be my first rigid single-speed.
Other option I’m considering is building an On One Inbred.Posted 4 years agobenjiSubscriber
Got one, nice ride, but am about to part with it, only because I have built myself a pace rc129er as a singlespeed, done just under 150 miles on it.
It’s a good frame, rides nicely with the 29er wheels, so enables the carrying of momentum, the 33/20 gearing is about spot on for most things you would ever want to ride.Posted 4 years agofranksinatraSubscriber
I’ve had mine for about three weeks now. Nce bike, good price, excellent frame. Rides really well and gearing suits me fine.
You won’t get a medium though, there are none in the country and no more coming in, trust me, I tried!
No cable stops for rear mech as advertised, bb is fine so far and brakes are much better than I expected. Tyres are not much though, I’ve replaced the front with a 2.4 mountain king which suits it betterPosted 4 years ago
