Hard as in hard tail. Rigid to be exact! Check out the Soma Juice 29er.
Soma provided the frame, seat collar, fork, headset and stem.
Slider dropouts give me the option to go single speed at a later date. I may just take them up on that offer.
The build plan basically has a budget in mind. I don’t plan on spending any money on it. I’ve got some newish 1×10 drive train parts that I’m planning on using as well as an WTB i9 wheel set. The build itself shouldn’t take long. We’re planning on having it done by next week.
