Thou shalt not...

Man, I am seriously coveting the new Gary Fisher Rig.

A 29" singlespeed, straight from the factory. No fuss, no muss. Only drawbacks: aluminum frame (rigid) and suspension fork (not rigid enough. But that might be OK since I'm old and fat).

In a perfect world, I'd be able to afford a custom steel 29er for my tall ass. In a slightly less perfect world, I'd at least be able to afford a Surly Karate Monkey. However, no one seems to sell them built, and I have neither the space nor the ambition to buy a frame, then buy the bits, then try to fit them all together.

This may signal the end of the line for my Fisher Sugar 2 Disk.
