So on this access 29er build i'm doing I haven't devided on either. I ride Amelia primarily, Oleta often, and markham sometimes. Those with experience in both please offer me some pros and cobs of

1) ss vs geared (I'd go 1x9)
I only use 2 gears anyway.

And

2) rigid vs suspension.
sooo many roots!

Was thinking about it but I could probably find 9spd cassette and der cheaper and I really only use 2 maybe 3 gears on any trails. I'm thinking Reba for the front end since its a budget build.

A Reba would be sweet for any build a Recon or Tora would be more of a budget build fork. The Reba is the RS high end 29'r fork.

I see some ss rigids riding there too but my back isn't up to that abuse...
Personally I'd go 1x10 FS for down here. I find that I am only using 2 or 3 rear gears with the center ring. I ride Markham a lot and even on Gun Range/ Crimescene trails that is all the gears I need. YMMV
