Strengths:    frame finish is amazing, EBB is solid and functional - also allows for the avid 9er to experiment with various GEO setups - short/long chain stay + high/low BB hieght. Headset is IS, and is super simple and clean. Possible rear/front derailer too - so SS, 1X10, 2X10, 3X10 (or 9sp as well).

Weaknesses:    low profile - it just didnt get the flash that other SS bikes got. I think this is due to the nature of the "single speed" crowd...they just love to be different - and not from a bike company, like GF/Trek.

Bottom Line:   
I built this up from parts, so its pretty special: 95mm/120mm Talas non-G2, 69/68 fork angle, XTR pedals and brakes, Haven with Captain ft, Saguaro rr, 32T/18T, Shimano Deore 175mm, thomson post, Henge saddle...THARIS wide bar 90mm PRO stem. Anyway, it ride low at 95mm and high and aggressive at 120mm. This little frame is a gem - original chain puts the EBB to the back and low...which I think works well. My RIG comes in at 23.1lbs and it could be much lighter but its not a wieght weenie bike, its a blaster SS. It feels short in tight single track and the back end easily pops over logs. Turning is good at either 95/120 and just depends on how you want to ride. I would say this is a great deal of a bike and it doesnt need to be pimped out to be fun.

Favorite Trail:   3stage, Copeland

Duration Product Used:   just biult it - new

Price Paid:    $300.00

Purchased At:   private

Similar Products Used:   OPUS Phast 29er, Epic sworks 29er, Camber 9er.

Bike Setup:   80psi in the fork, low 20's for PSI in the tires....the Geax Saguaro has to be the best tire for a hardtail! At 24psi or so, it absorbs roots and rocks without issue - allows you to stay seated :-) wide bars make the RIG turn quick, took me awhile to realize this as I was all over the trail at first. I am keeping this blaster of a bike...super fun.
