I've had my setup for nearly one week. Offroad and onroad, the thing is
amazing! I hit 20mph down some fireroads yesterday. I'll try to make
complete write up at some point. I had to modify the frame (grind out
the bearing holders), but it works quite well.

I'd like to see that saddle, it looks a little uncomfortable.

It's a Wallis air saddle with the groove in the middle. I have pictures
on the picasa album.

I have yet to find a truly comfortable seat.

How well does the geared 29er keep up with the geared 36ers?

I'm interested in how the 29er compares to the 36er as far as geared
hubs go.

As with normal 29ers/36ers, it depends on the crank lengths.  On
Thursday Mike Scalisi and I were riding in Castle Valley, Moab, Utah,
on an extremely straight and gradually downhill road.  Mike was on his
v54 (original Harper hub in a 36" AirFoil) with 152mm cranks, and I was
on a KH/Schlumpf 29er with 125mm cranks.  The speeds were pretty
comparable; one of us would go for a burst of speed and get ahead of
the other, but wouldn't be able to create much of a gap, and then the
other would come around and pass.  We were cruising at 18+ MPH and
probably bursting above 20 MPH.  I was wearing Mike's GPS watch, but
really didn't want to look at it when I was going that fast.  

The two unis behave somewhat differently on different terrain, but I
would have to say they were pretty close to comparable in speed; maybe
a very slight edge to the v54.

At 18mph and no elbow pads or shin gaurd ...

I'd hate to see the road rash result.

Prediction : Pain.

I had a fall on an original Schlumpf at 16+.  I didn't manage to run
out, but I rolled and came up with just minor scrapes.  It's nothing
like crashing on a bike, or on a MUni for that matter.

Looking at your post's title, let's do some math...

speed + no protection = boo - boo
boos cancel out

speed + no protection = 0
subtract no protection

speed = -No protection
Double negative cancels out

Speed = Protection

So in conclusion, the geared 36 is far superior to the geared 29er
because it has more potential to go faster.

Sure, these are all speed-capable machines. But sometimes it's nice to
just float along in overdrive at "regular" speeds but with a lower
cadence. Makes the ride nicer I think. :cool:

Corbin, how is your tire clearance side to side with the frame?
When I modified my Nimbus frame for the Geared hub the clearance is to
close now for my magura brakes to fit without hitting the rim when
riding
