Thought it would be appropriate to post it here. I built it with a retro theme in mind and threw as many retro parts on it as I could.

The frame/fork are a little on the porky side otherwsie handles pretty well, don't even feel like a 29er at all. Of course it 's always fun getting it dirty too.

Beautiful.

What does Vassago mean?

(edit: looked it up myself: In demonology, Vassago is a mighty Prince of Hell, ruling over twenty-six legions of demons.)

Wonderful frame - do they make 26 wheel mountain bike frame?

(edit: No)

Ya gotta love a bike called jabberwocky. Can I ask you a few questions about kit choice? Was there a reason for going rigid and singlespeed? I'm intrigued by the number of 29'ers that are both. Building one myself and I am leaning this way, certainly singlespeed but had considered sus for a bit more flexibility though would this defeat the 29" wheel idea?
