Any good single speed 29ers under $500?

Fully rigid of course. Let me know please!

Are you looking for an oversized tire bike because the MotoBecanes aren't bad with 3" tires.

You can get a Scott Aspect 970 or 960 (the 960 has hydraulic discs, the 70 has regular discs) for that price. But they have 110mm of travel in the front forks though, not fully rigid.

Personally I'd buy 2nd hand for that sort of money, I recently paid 375 for what was originally a 1000 bike from a bike shop ... they'd given it a full service and it came with a months warranty.

People spending $500 or less are generally noobs and noobs want gears and suspension. The people wanting rigid single speeds are generally advanced riders who want their rigid single speeds light and are willing to pay for it, plus they are niche bikes anyway and generally all steel or carbon so $$$$$. There isn't much of a market for cheap rigid single speeds is what I'm getting at. Bikesdirect is about the only place I can think of that has one.

Are you talking about single speed (1 cog in front, 1 cog in the rear), or 1X (1 chainring in front, standard cassette in the rear)?
