Finally got my new frame set. All City Electric Queen, fully rigid steel frame, single speed, 27+ (or 29). Wanted to take a big sidestep from the industry mantra and get something I actually wanted to ride. Loving it so far!

That's definitely different! Not sure my wrists would cope with a rigid front end though...

Surprisingly comfortable, big 2.8 tyres take the edge off and plenty of give in the fork. You take on Rocky descents by skipping about like a mountain goat rather than plowing through, it’s well good fun!

My latest acquisition, On One Big Dog.

Sold the full susser and got this for some more speedy runs on the road and light trails. 

And if I decide it's too hard I can get some forks to soften the front end up.

Looks nice that Dave, very much like my bike will be once I've built the new frame!

Edit, just looked at full bike prices direct from PlanetX, unreal value!

Also been riding full rigid recently and really enjoying it. As Ben says above, you just have to pick your way down rather than point and shoot. It makes the fun bits last longer! Have ridden everything I normally ride on the full susser these last few weeks, just a bit slower on the downs and miles faster on the ups.

That's exactly what I thought, all the trails round here are what I rode in my teens on hand me down cheap rigid bikes so I know they're just as fun. 

Yeah couldn't really knock it at that price, tyres are a bit iffy but other than that it's spot on for now.

@isitafox What forks are they? I want to get something like those for my hardtail MTB. Swap the forks and tyres around depending on what I'm riding.

They're Selcof boost forks, think they're only available from Planet X so if you want a pair it's worth sending them an email.

Don't think I've put this up on here so... My 2019 Transition Patrol

So I decided to stealth my 2015 Works SCR a bit as previously there was a LOT of green (grips, pedals, bash guard, chain guide, stickers (frame, shock and forks), valve caps, saddle... You get the idea!). Have the paint to turn her sandy beige but couldn't be bothered with the strip so just put the black stickers on the army green (not great!) paint for now. Quite like it and will leave it like this for the time being!

Brackets are 3D printed and fit the battery for my light, keeping it snug.

Looks clean enough that Dave!

Done the 5 mile commute on the Big Dog that I used to do daily on my Genesis CdF a few years back. 

I fully expected to be slightly slower because of the extra weight and tyres so an extra 7-8 mins doesn't bother me but the best bit is the fact it doesn't feel like hard work riding on the road.

Looks good Dave.

I've been keeping half an eye out for a cheap T-130 for Soph, seem to be great value for money.

I may be bending the rules here and taking the word 'bike' a bit literally...

 

Trek Fuel (now has riser bars and Rockshox dropper post)

Honda Grom (don't judge, it's so much fun)

Yamaha WR450F Supermoto (I actually no longer own this one but worth a mention as it was awesome)

Azonic DS-1 (This is a replica I built of my do-it-all street/trials bike I learned trials on while growing up, sold for parts a couple of years ago)

Loving my old Haro Mary lately. Terrible rear tyre. Front brake that's leaking and a back brake that desperately needs bleeding. Brilliant.

Got a 75% off deal on a pair of wheels for the fatbike, came with rotors tubes, cassette and tires. So now my fatbike is going to serve as my commuter for the season, and any road / light offroad adventures.
