Single Speed 29er

I got this bike back in 2008 before 29ers exploded in the mountain biking market. I traded my Surly Steamroller for it because fixies were getting too mainstream. I rode it as a singlespeed until I built up my Soma Juice in 2010. It sat in a box until summer 2013 when it was resurrected as a townie bike. I built up some wheels for it and wrapped some Schwalbe Fat Franks on them. Then I put some fenders, then a Soma Porteur Rack

29er townies are getting mainstream, too. Time to move on to penny farthings.
