29 inch roadbike... why doesn't this work?
29 inch hardtail rigid front mb with geometry closer to a roadbike. with 130mm rear spacing, I coud then outfit with: Dura Ace 9 speed sti with compact double crank (34/50) and widest cassett (11-23?), avid mechanical disc road front brake, canti rear, drop bars with cross-top levers. By outfitting this way i could then use 29" mb wheels (as long as they are laced to 130mm hub) OR 700 wheels...
THUS ALLOWING ME TO RIDE ONE BIKE YEAR-ROUND, WITH WHEELSET CHANGES FROM HEAVY 29ER STUDDED TIRES AL THE WAY DOWN TO LIGHTWEIGHT SET FOR CLUB CRITS....?
