Yes, I do still sell Niner bikes

I have these frame, headset, fork, wheels packages available for $2400
If you don't want the rigid fork I can put a Rock Shox Tora on for the same money or Manitou Minute, Reba or Fox F29 as an up-grade.
Complete bikes can also be built.
If you are interested in the 29er wheel size but not 100% sure, give me a call and arrange a test ride.
Thanks for looking,

The Future of Single Speed?

Is it the Gates Carbon belt drive system?

Ventana Mountain Bikes have produced frames in both 26" and 29er wheel size with a rear axle slide system that will come apart and allow the belt to pass through the seat stays.

So new they are yet to feature on their website
but they are essentially modified El Toro or El Commandante frames with without the EBB but now with a slider.

I have one of the first production El Commandantes already a great 29er single speed made better with the belt drive.

Positives; quicker, lighter, stronger, longer lasting, all weather mud loving, low maintenance, cool!

Negatives; less gear ratio's ATM, but with a couple more belt lengths in the pipe line to solve that.

Here's mine

Custom Titanium

With the Aussie dollar at .92cUS maybe that US hand built custom titanium frame is a posibility?

Give me a call for the latest prices!
