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.

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

--J,
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.
