meant to post this only on the 29er but mistakenly put on SS forum as well.

between the 2, which is the better deal or are they both good which is my guess

$800 for the following new bikes:

* Surly Karate Monkey (note: basically same/comparable parts as on a new Rig). comes with KM rigid fork in this case.
* New Rig.

Cheers,
FoShizzle

if you can get a brand new rig for $800, definitely the rig. But the monkey is more versatile, so for long term it could have more value.

I looked at the rig before I bought my On One 29'er complete bike. Not sure when I will get the On One, but it is an option in the same price range. I did have to order from Brant/One One in the UK.

Another new bike.....what's wrong with the niner?

B
absolutely nothing wrong with the Niner. In fact, I absolutely love it and other than the KM fork, i would not change a thing.

this new obsession has to do with getting yet another bike.....this bike would be kept at my office 24/7 to encourage me to ride more during the week. i have sweet single track right outside my office door that i can do from office door and back in 1 hour. this bike would be used just for that purpose. perhaps with it almost being year end, i feel the need to add yet a 4th single speed purchase as if it was in my goals at work or something.

of course i could use one of the bikes i already own for this purpose but that would contradict my horrible pattern of constantly doing the illogical thing.
