One more, clearance looks decent. The top two are exiwolfs, then two IRC tires, then Maxxis.

This frame would be my choice over a karate monkey for sure.

Here is the Nano.

Anyone has bought one and have some pics to share :skep: :p
I just picked one up this week - frame and matching fork. I'm lucky and live nearby where they're made. Working on building it up - might be a week or so. This will be my first 29 and I'm anxious to get it up and running. It will also be my first disc brake set up too. All kinds of new stuff for me, but it will still have Suntour thumbshifters :)
The welds are smooth and tight. Nice basic black paint job. Can't beat it for handmade USA steel. I'll post some pics when done.

It's not unusual to see bridgeless chainstays, I believe. My Bontrager didn't have them, my Lemond cx bike doesn't either.

Chainstay bridges are not needed on bikes, they offer very little in terms of additional side to side rigidity.

BTW Scott is one hell of a cyclist, one of the top five at any race in Michigan.

I might have to pick one of those up to setup next to

the Monocog. Two 4130 29ers that can be set up SS or Geared (MC with tensioner hanger) with sussy corrected unicrown forks? I'm drooling on my keyboard. Cool looking bike too.

Here's pictures of the final Q Ball build. Nothing fancy at all - just stuff that works. It was a great way for me to get out and try a 29 for the first time. Only a couple rides so far, but I enjoy it.
