hello everyone on Bike Forum

just ran across this forum while looking for some info on a new MTB I purchased earlier this week... I decided to get into a 29er single speed and found the Gravity G29 FS from Bikes Direct.
after a 1/2 hour of assembly I was riding down the street. Very impressed with the fit and finish.
If there are any other members riding the Gravity G29, I would like to get some long term feed-back on how things are going.

Cheers tjohn50, welcome to Bike Forums.

Ask about it in MTB forum, or, seeing it's a Single Speed, in Single Speed and Fixed Gear. Focus on getting actual user feedback. If you concentrate on praising its quality, fit and finish you easily come off as a Bikes Direct shill. We've had those as well.

To err is human. To moo is bovine.

Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?

Welcome to Bike Forums. You may find some others riding a Gravity in the Mountain Biking forum. Have fun.

Sorry if I cam off that way.... didn't mean to. I am not a Bike Direct "shill". I'm just a 50+ year old MT biker that decided to try a single speed bike.
If I find something, decide to buy it and then find out it is everything it was advertised to be, I will spread the word, no matter where it came from. If the bike was junk, I would have been spreading the same news.... anyways, thanks for the suggestions.
