Hello guys,
I saw a very nice looking pace RC129 frame set the other day and i started thinking i might like to build a relatively WW rigid 29er,so i thought i would ask the question in the hope of getting some opinions and pictures of this build.
I was thinking of running it single speed with disc front and rear.

cheers

Drives great but is no light weight.

A friend rides one with the single speed dropouts, runs it SS and rigid (carbon forks), really likes it...

Hi,

This is the crank in close up.

I use a hope chain guide. But it is certainly not the best on the market. I'm also replaced the hope chainring by aftermarket XX1 ring.

cheers
