You could use track rings, but I simply use a TA 47t ring. No problems, and it's sweet under load etc.

I'm just going to nip out to the workshop now and build the Bosomworth up.

now with a 29'er and a single speed i now have to get 29'er SS.

but i am unsure about the fork i should get. steel, carbon, reba's. this will be a training bike so the less maintence needed the better, it will get hammered.

i currently ride a rigid SS (26"). but this will be a bike that i ride for longer. i was wondering how smoth a ride rigid steel or carbon give.

Steeel can be very harsh, but an XC rigid should be ok for several hours, you will want to look for a good quality butted XC type fork, personally I would go carbon, the ride is still very direct, but the carbon takes the edges off the hits

Yeah mine is steel. Big volume tyres and the big wheels make it nicely rideable for longer rides.

thanks guys. i'll have to do some looking into prices etc.

carbon might be good by the sounds. i was think of 2.1 tires. should be fine on big hoops.

any recomendations of carbon forks. prices?
