I went out yesterday and got myself a kona unit 29.
I have a feeling this bike is going to be a ton of fun :)

Its my first 29er, and my second SS.
I rode it around the streets a little yesterday, and tonight I'm taking it out for some real fun.

I'm thinking I may need to change the cog. On my old 26' SS i was running a 32 18 combo. The unit comes with a 32 20 combo, and its a little to low for me.

what would give me close to the same gearing as my old setup on a 29er?

Really depends on terrain. Although I did not do much ss on my 26ers, I was geared at 32/18 the few times I rode it before I sold it. Running the same on my 29er SS. Just put in 60miiles over the weekend in my first extended foray into SS and felt it perfect for the rolling logging roads and single-track that I was riding in N WI.
