Re: Wagon Wheel (29er) CLUB

I think the stock bike came in a tad under 29 lbs.So I should of shaved  6.5 lbs off it.Now if the track will just open so I can take it out and see how it rolls. Now I have all the parts left over to build up another complete.Just need a frame.So when they come out with the 29" quad ill have all the parts to build one up.Hopefully they will come in a frame set as well as completes.

Re: Wagon Wheel (29er) CLUB

There is a Big Ripper in stock at the ReCyclery in Lawrence if anyone's interested.  The owner is a ex-racer and an SE dealer.  I bought mine from him. (785) 856-1236

Re: Wagon Wheel (29er) CLUB

I raced my big ripper on thursday for the first outdoor race of the season.We had two heats of 5 riders and full rack for the main.I finished first in a very stacked 36-40 cruiser class.I had a great gate and got the hole shot to the first turn.The second place rider and I pulled away from pack out of the first turn and there was no looking back.Im running the stock 33-18 gear ratio and with the help of some super lite 26" tubes I finaly got it down to 21lbs 13 oz.Im having a blast racing it.Plus all the comments people say about the size of the wheels are fun.Next time you get a chance take one to the track.They handle so much better than one would think of a bike of its size.Its giving me a whole new interest for racing again.

how much can a big ripper be bought for?

I have been watching them on eBay for the last month or so and a couple went for around 400.00. The last few have been getting up to the 500.00 mark.

Re: Wagon Wheel (29er) CLUB

I'm stoked we have a "BIG RIPPER" thing going on.

There are other 29rs but none like the "BIG RIPPER" !

Any truth to the rumor that SE is making a 29er Quad?

Re: Wagon Wheel (29er) CLUB

I brought her home last night, LBS took the order for $488 including tax, it came in within 48 hours. Drag on the roof rack was scary - this thing is BIG alright. But, wicked light. Rode her for two hours last night, road and a little offroad. Handles like a dream, so funny to stand on the pedals...at 6'3", my head is way high! Seriously, it's an absolutely wonderful bike...a new fav, here.

Re: Wagon Wheel (29er) CLUB

That's cool Cappy! I can totally relate to the high-altitude ride... and the 29er really rocks the roof rack pretty hard, especially going over speed bumps... pretty scary!

"Need." Ah, such rarely used term in my home. Why? 'Cause as far as she knows, the bike cost $150... lol
