I miss my old rigid (and yeah... it was simply a MTB when I bought it too). Steel frame with nice steel fork... tracked like it was on rails. My worst cycling mistake ever was to have gotten rid of it. Actually, I gave it to my brother thinking he could use a bike. He left it out on his front porch unlocked where it got stolen. I am still bitter about this and it's been nearly five years. I'll probably build up another rigid one of these days. I'm lusting over the Pace frames with a Pace CF rigid fork however I also have a soft spot for the old-school MTBs. I still keep an eye out for a good deal on a 1993 Bridgestone MB-1 with the really cool Ritchey-designed fork.
