I've been riding my on-one 29er for a month or so now and I'm really sold on the wheel size and the handling of the larger bike but the on-one is just a bit too clunky so i'm looking for an 853 29er frame.

I keep on looking at the pipedream Skookum

Has anyone riden a Pipedream? Any opinions, advice etc

Thanks

I'm trying to fix a date up to ride the demo bike in the Forest of Dean.

I'll let you know what I think.

ZigZag up here in MacRetroland rides a Pipedream Sirrius which I think is a 26er, he likes it and its a fine looking machine with oh so skinny seatstays. I reckon Pipedream as their name implies make mighty fine framesets.

I've arranged to meet Stuart this weekend.

Photo's and feedback to follow.

Niner; I saw one the other day and it was sweet. If I ever win the lottery I'll consider buying one.
