New option for the 29er fans.

Niner bikes finally releasing the One9. Guess the 29er revolution still building.

nothing against that bike, but i'm not a huge fan of top tubs that have such an extreme slope to them

Reminds me of the Fisher Rig. Fisher got hip to 29ers a few years ago, but is just picking up on singlespeed now, afaik. Overlapping trends...

That would seem ideal. I love sloped tt's. Would be interested in trying her out.

Thats the one thing I haven't liked about any current 29ers I have seen...they all look like road bikes with flat bars. tt is perfectly straight and it looks too boxy. I don't like xc bikes geometries so this 'seems' ideal fo rme anyways

They link to Stan's no-tubes, but I couldn't find any 29er stuff there. Anyone know of tubeless 29er systems?

Thanks all for your interest. I will pop in time to time to answer questions you have.

Yes, our bikes have a very sloped downtube. There are many reasons for this.
1. Stiffer Bottom bracket. A must for singlespeeders
2. Lower standover. 29ers raise standovers
3. A small weight savings

I have been running Stans new Olympic 29 rim with great success. He does not have them posted on his website yet but if you call he will have them soon.
