Gunnar's Ruffian is made for building a smooth, fast singlespeed. This fine frame features nimble, race-capable geometry that lets you storm climbs and bomb descents, all the while enjoying the sweet ride quality of air-hardened steel tubing paired with 29-inch wheels. Plus, managing chain tension is a snap thanks to Paragon's stainless-steel dropouts that move the rear wheel and rear disc brake together, so rear wheel removal and alignment is a no-brainer. The Ruffian is designed around an 80mm fork and has room out back for tires up to 2.3 inches. Your riding buddies will be on their toes as they try to keep you in their sights.
Whether you prefer the serenity of a riding trails with your crew or tussling head-to-head on the race course, Giant's Anthem X 29er Frame is the tool to get it done. Speed and efficiency comes from the 100mm of Maestro rear suspension and 29-inch wheels which propel you over obstacles, up hills, through turns and across the finish ahead of the pack. Plus, Giant's tapered head tube and dialed geometry tracks and steers quickly while taming low-speed switchbacks and high-speed corners with equal aplomb. Not every ride is a race, but it's nice to know you'd win if it were.
