Gravity 29 Single Speed from BikesDirect

Purchased a Gravity 29ss from BikesDirect for $349 and loving it. Fun bike to ride, with the exceptions of sub-par brakes and a little bit of weight penalty. Replaced the stock saddle with a Planet Bike ARS saddle take off from a previous bike and replaced the pedals with a mtb/bmx platform pedal, again, from a previous bike and added fenders as well. Planning to either replace the rigid chro-moly fork with a carbon rigid fork or a remote suspension fork and the seatpost with either a carbon seatpost or a dropper post. Gearing is a 33t Truativ crankset Power Spline BB with 33t paired with a 18t cassette with two giant spacers. Brakes are Tektro Novela Mechanical/ Cable-actuated disc brakes. Overall enjoyable bike, took it to some light off-road trails and has been fun except for the rigid fork in the gravel parts/ roots/ abandoned wooden trail tracks. Climbing is doable but if you're a beginner/ weaker cyclist then I'd suggest having gears. The lack of gears also would mean that there would be a lot of spinning especially going downhill and going North of 15mph. But for the price again, it is a very fun and great bike especially if your terrain is mostly flat. I'll also attached some pictures of the bike, on a commuter setup, and a video of a ride I took.
