- 1st - it must be steel
- 2nd - it must be have the option of running it single speed or set up as a 1x9
- 3rd - a tapered headtube would be nice, but not necessary
I will be riding it mostly rigid single speed. I will, however, be getting a suspension fork for it and a 1x9 drive train for big hills early in the season or even bigger rides (ie. Colorado) later in the year.
The finalist in no particular order:
|Niner Sir 9|
|Salsa El Mariachi|
|Canfield Brother's Nimble 9|
