This is my mountain bike which my wife calls "Big Wheel". It is my first 29er and I bought it as a singlespeed. I love the singlespeed ride but was finding that I liked the rides that lasted over 2 hours and with lots of hills. That was a little tough on my legs but I didn't want to give up the clean drivetrain. So I went with the Shimano Nexus internal 8 speed. Although it is not recommended for offroading by Shimano, I'm willing to give it a go. So far I love it. With the clean drivetrain, I'm not messing with bent derailleurs or tuning the shifters like my riding buddies. Not only that but it shifts immediately, perfectly and without having to pedal.

The On One Inbred 29er is a great ride. The bigger wheels feel like it has 1 inch suspension and the steel ride is snappy. I've had many of my full suspension friends ride it and they all come off thinking about getting one. This is not really in the right category since it is not a singlespeed right now but it has no derailleurs.
