I have 2 rigid 29ers, a Hunq and a steel 29er built by Aherne with geo
commonly found on most mtn bikes. Even though they are both steel and don't
have suspension they ride very differently. The Aherne with it's higher bb
and more aggressive positioning is super fun to ride on all terrain. The
Hunq while much better loaded and way more comfortable for all day riding
is not as capable when the trail gets really rough. Pedal strikes are much
They are both awesome but in different ways. The hunq can do it all but if
unloaded singletrack shredding is your priority then there are many more
capable bikes. If loaded touring, comfort, style, with solid off road
capability is what you want then the Hunq will satisfy you completely.
