Thought it about time to take some pics of my new (to me) Singular Swift.
Up until August I had been experimenting .... 29er wheels in 26'' frames, 69ers, road bike wheels in mountain bike frames etc
Really like the idea of the 29'' wheel but fancied a cross bike as well as a fat tyred beast oh and something I could sling slicks on for road work.
So whist not to everyone's taste I present my Swift Arm Knife:
Currently running 1x9 with a 36t ring up front and a 11-32
cassette out back. Seems to give me a good enough range for what I need.
Have really fallen for the 32mm WTB tyres - cut through everything and are pretty grippy too.
The wheels let the bike down a bit as they are fairly heavy but with 17mm rims they allow for a 25mm tyre to be fitted for road duties and also upto a 2.2 tyre.
Bike has only been up and running a few weeks and apart from the need to change the seat post I think I am nearly there.
