After looking, reading, test riding (when possible), and asking lots of questions on a entry level SS 29er with the option of adding gears...I ordered a Origin8 Scout 29. It won't arrive for another week, but I'm stoked as it's got very decent components at entry level pricing. My only possible upgrade would be to a suspension fork if it beats me too much...time will tell.
Anyone else ride this bike?

We've got a couple at our shop, they ride pretty good. I do prefer the old steel model but the aluminum one rides good as well. The bike really is one of the unnoticed bargains in entry-level 29ers, especially when J&B discounts them. For just a tad bit more than a MonoCog you get a better crank and disc brakes.

Looks nice, I ride an Outcast 29er (insert bashes here) I love that bike, but the rigid did beat up my wrists. I am going put a squishy fork on it during the winter, I am a clyde 6'5" 265 so I think a 80mm fork will suit it fine. Good luck and welcome to the 29er ss rigid world.

I'm building a Raleigh XXIX from ebay parts over the last 2 months, just need a chain and the wheelset and tires to finish. Waiting to get some money for the wheelset. Looking at Stan's Flow or 355 and Hope 2 hubs to run tubeless.
