    Showdown at the SS 29er Corral

    The IRS just informed me that I should be $600 richer by the end of this week. I intend to remedy that situation ASAP.

    Anyway, it's down to the Kona Unit 2-9:

    And the Jamis Exile 29:

    Any Clyde input or speculation on either of these bikes would be appreciated. Probably ignored, because I think I know what I'm going to get, but still appreciated.

    That Jamis is waaaay hot. One note, though, the Exiwolfs have loads of rolling resistance.

    Of the two I like the Jamis better, but not as much as my Monocog.
