I know a lot of you guys recommend the 29ers, but i have a short inseam, but can still be fitted, just to a smaller frame. IS that correct? and what are some of the tougher 29ers if that is the case?:madman:

Vassago has an awesome website...I just looked at it, good humor also:D ...Looks like they make a nice frame...How would they hold up to 340lbs tho?? Steel frame sounds appealing..is it stronger and more forgiving than an aluminum frame?

I'm 5' 9" and have a 30" inseam as well. Don't focus completely on standover height. Buy a bike that fit's top-tube wise and is more tailored to what type of stuff you ride. By just going for standover you may miss out on the bike that is perfect for you.

hey TOZ is there is a stronger bike that you might recommend as a first 29'er and what size frame...i do a lot of singletracking and trail riding, want to adventure into a little more though..
also is the the single speed hard to get used too?

Depending on budget, there are a few winners out there..The Karate Monkey is a fantastic bike...DEFINITELY worth a look. I'd be remiss in not mentioning the Sinister Simon bar as it's something I helped design ;) The Redline monocogs can be picked up inexpensively and seem to be damn bombproof.

Going SS was easy for me as I come from years on a BMX ...getting back on SS was a breath of air...nothing to think about, just pedal. Awesome.
