Steel 29-er

I’m interested in a getting a steel 29-er hardtail – preferably single-speed with option to run gears. Particularly keen on Niner SIR9 or Ritchey P-29er.

Does anyone have one of these I could please sling a leg over and ride around the block, or even better a steel 29-er they are thinking of selling? I prefer the XC bent as opposed to hardcore hardtail flavour. Medium size required (5’10”)

Thank you!

I don't have one but the guys at Summit Cycles will. Go have a chat with them and tell them what you're after, they may be able to hook you up with someone selling one 2nd hand if budget is tight.

If you are very patient and have the budget, I can recommend a Waltworks. Custom made steel 29ers are his speciality.

Don't mind me.

Thanks guys, much appreciated. Test rode a SIR9 at Summit Cycles on Saturday, and deposit has been placed! Fantastic steel feel!
