As many of you know, I’ve been coveting others’ 29ers for a long time. Why? Because I can’t fit one, and everyone talks about how great they are. So, Matt, being the most awesome hubby in the world, is helping me out.
We’re starting with a Carver 96er. Low cost, 13″ frame. If this works, then I’ll consider going custom to get what I really want.
There’s only 1 water bottle cage. But the frame looks great! I love the color (okay, I’ve always been a sucker for marketing of any kind, so color really makes me happy).
I can’t wait to try this out! The Mavic Crossmax 26″ and 29″ wheels, tires, seatpost, stem, and bottom bracket have all arrived in the mail. My lovely White Brothers Rock Solid carbon fork is awaiting its steed. All the rest will come from the very nice parts bin that Matt keeps well-stocked.
I can’t wait! I’m going to have one bad-assed rigid singlespeed pretty soon.
