    96er/69er Picture Thread

    Please post your 96er/69er pics.

    Let's keep it to pictures without the whole 29er vs. 96er debate, thanks. (if you want to debate it, start another thread )

    I think someone started one of these just a couple of weeks ago, but here's what I've got cookin on a very low budget:



    rockhound - the fork should look familiar. the bike now has a saddle, seatpost, brake levers, and grips on it. Still needs a SS rear wheel, a tensioner a chain, and some brake cable and housing installed, but she's getting there.

    Yeah, I'm first!

    I posted this in the SS forum a little while ago, but hear it is: Titanium, Singlespeed, S&S couplers, 69er:

    That's mighty tight clearance up front, what's the AC length on that On One Trials fork??

    here's the Carver I test rode for a bit in the spring. It was a fun bike but it was a touch too small for me.

    things are more like they are today than they ever were before

    You are correct, clearance at the crown is very tight with the Bontrager Jones XR 2.25. The AC length is 425. I actually filed a notch in the bottom of the steerer tube for a little more clearance. I would love to put a new WTB WW LT 2.55 on the front to match the 26" one I now have on the back, but there is no way it will fit in this fork. Maybe a custom Black Sheep Ti fork with more offset? $$$!

    What about a regular Inbred fork - 440mm AC height?

    Mine might be a little tall Axle to Crown. Time will tell I guess.

    Here's my take on a 69er.






    On-One Tinbred with the front wheel out of my crossbike. I'm still waiting to get a propper ride on it.

    Another one that looks really well balanced with that fork up front. is that a Pace 26er or 29er fork on the front? Looks good!

    My Inbred, easy to swap between 26 and 29 with this fork.

    It's a 26er fork.

    I've added a few bits and pieces and thought I'd update things with a pic here.

    Wheel en route to me from my buddy and teammate splat (the splat of NEMBA, Vietnam fame).

    I wouldn't ride a Nishiki, couldn't obtain a Fisher at my budget. I frankenbiked my VooDoo. It was way better than how I rode it 26/26 rigid before, but the rear felt insanely harsh all at once. I rode it shortly till I found a used Fisher frameset + wheels lightly used in the MTBR classifieds. I sold the Dimension 26" disc fork, most other parts I still have. This was also my first go at disc brakes. Late 2001 project this I think.

    Cloxxki, I think it looks good. The difference between the wheels and tires looks exaggerated on your bike compared to the others for some reason...maybe the all black rims.

    P.S. What's wrong with Nishikis? I still have a Nishiki road bike...

    I can't hold a cam straight. I have a straightened version of this pic somewhere, and it looks more "normal".
    Back then I was dead-set on corrected 29" geometry (no 71 HTA for me), and I didn't trust the carbon suspension forks. Oh, and top tubes were too short for me. Now, I'd get a 22" Nishiki frame and build it as a monstercrosser. The long head tube, short top tube and slow handling all favor that :-) NIshiki used to be good, their Bigfoots came from a Dutch/German cooperation that bought the name, and now it's just a Scandinavian purchase group anymore I think.

    My MC 96er

    Hey I'm shameless. I know I posted this already (at least once), but I love to show off my creations!! The bike is built around a Matt Chester geared Ute. The fork is a Vanilla Cycles fillet brazed beauty. If you haven;t seen any of Sacha's work, find some. The man is an artist!!!I have some tweaking to do before the build is final. I am building up a dedicated Eccentric ENO wheel tonight and have a couple of other blingy bits to hang from it, but other than that here's how its going to look. I do want to swap out the ExiWolf front tire as I find it crazy harsh. Thinking about either Rampage, Nevegal or ultimately WW LT .

    Rockhound- what fork did you use there? Is that a Surly? Or perhaps a Dimension?
