My next bike will most likely be a geared 29r. I'll use it for some 12 hour races and such.

my specialized p.2 freeride hardtail, i already have a frame going single speed will probably cost more, since i will need the cog, spacers and tensioner, instead of just a rear derailluer

This needs to be an AND poll instead of an OR poll. One is backup for the other.
