@singlespeedstu- I know your Jones probably gets most of the attention, but I'm really loving your Gryphon!
BTW, sorry for mistaking you for a Welshman in an earlier thread. Probably like calling a Cuban a Puerto Rican, or something!

Me too. Just waiting for my new Salsa Woodchipper bar to arrive for it at the moment.
Then I'm going to have a few weeks of dropbar fun and give the Jones a rest.

:lol: @ the Welshman mistake.;)

maybe you should show me around the Houston trails this summer:thumbsup:
Alright, but I'm doing it with gears & a suspension fork.

I rode Stephen F Austin State Park last night (in San Felipe, west of Katy). I've been there a few times in the last month & it is pretty fast. Not technical at all; big time cardio workout!

A group of us from work are going to try to make an outing once a month & hit up Memorial, The Anthills, Cypresswood, Double Lake, Huntsville & Warda this summer. If you are seriously interested, PM me & I'll give you some details.

This is a thread for fully rigid ss 29ers. Don't ruin it by posting a bike with a derailleur. I cannot stand looking at it (the derailleur).
Rigid has nothing to do with the gears, you idiot.

But, um, SS stands for Single Speed. OP (who you are calling an idiot, :confused: ), DID ask for FULLY RIGID SS 29ers.......

You need to get some zip ties and secure your brake lines to the guides brazed onto your frame and fork.
