So it seems most of the production single speeds are now 29ers. Does anyone know of a production one that still uses 26" wheels and has sliding dropouts, i.e. paragon sliders or similar.

Thanks :thumbsup:

Whats a 26" bike for?? :)

Voodoo has a couple of models that are inexpensive, and pretty much any custom builder will make one for you! Check out www.formcycles.com - VERY sweet and light Ti/steel bikes...

I thought that only the original 853 Inbreds had sliding dropouts? The current ones certainly don't.

Thanks a bunch

You guys have given some great options. As I said before, I'm looking for production. They guy that is in the market for one doesn't have the coin to drop for a custom frame.

Thanks again.

The older On*Ones had sliders. I think you're confusing sliders with track ends. The newer Inbreds/Scandals have the latter.

Let me second the Kona Explosif suggestion. I love the way mine rides and the versatility it affords. And $400 for the frame means you can build it up pretty nice without spending a huge sum of money. -LB

Ventana makes 26" 650B and 29" with their own version of sliders.
This is my 650B equipped version.
Are the swinging dropouts now standard on Ventana's HT's or a custom option? I don't see them mentioned anywhere in their website.
