Hi mountain bikers
I am thinking of getting a 29er single speed bike for winter abuse. I have a final price cap of $850, which includes post-buy additions to the bike. I am looking for something that will be very durable and not have to have much attention payed to it to keep it running smoothly.
Currently I am looking at the Motobecane Outcast 29er, the Redline Monocog, and the Surly Karate Monkey.
I think I would really like a Gary Fisher Rig, but those are kinda pricey.
If anyone has any experiences with any of these bikes or has some suggestions of things that might need replacing as soon as I get it, your input would be much appreciated.
