    Retrotec which currently has cross tires and a regular drop bar as opposed to the midge:

    It's not on my bike it's on a friends Singular Swift.

    They're Formula brakes that he's moded to work on the drops.


    It involved making a new clamp and some work on the lever I think

    Mine doesn't really count I guess. I just have ridden it like a 29er. I wouldn't take it everywhere that I take my Mamasita.

    Surly Steamroller with 32c 'cross tires.

    My SIR9 will likely be a drop-bar niner when it gets built up again.

    Mike, what kind of bar tape/foam is that on your bar? Also, who made the stem, that is sweet! Thanks.

    It's the ESI road bar stuff. Not sure what it's called but it's a PITA to install. Worth the pain so far--pretty comfy and doesn't seem too cold in winter.

    The stem was made by Brad Bingham--creative fabricator extraordinaire at Moots.

    Cheers,

    I believe this is more of a Monstercross thread than a Drop-Bar 29er

    I remember those shots of your drop bar Wilits from back in the day. Youíre a big reason that I converted my Black Sheep to drop bar status. I love it! By the way, Iím the guy who sold you the orange Strong 29er with the Action Tec fork. I miss that bike. Glad to see youíre on the Midge. Lee.

    That's such a fine line, I hardly think it matters. As segmented as bicycle marketing has become, I like to think bikes are like songs; there's only two kinds and I like the good ones.

    Keep the pics comin' fellers!

    I do miss the flared drops, tho. My KM, as pictured below, was not the most technically expedient, but was really damn fun. I'll be getting a Gary bar soon to bring it back in this form.

    Oooo! I was hoping some Fargos would start showing up on this thread!

    Thanks, GnatBikes.

    Any other Fargo owners want to post up?

    Great bikes, MikeSee. What's the scoop on the Moots fork 'crown'. I don't see too many built like that.

    I use it for CX, XC, and combo dirt/pavement rides,

    I also use it for very mellow ST rides and all winter long when the roads are snow and ice packed and having a low pressure tubeless 2.3 on there is the ideal tire for the conditions.

    It is a great bike. Monstercross? Drop bar MTB?

    I don't really care what name gets attached to it. To me, it's a great BIKE.

    Well, this is covering a little ground which has already been covered, but just to give others who're bored something to look at... Some are mine, some are from customers.

    Monocog Flight w/ Midges. It's SS right now (despite the bar end shifter), but I ran the housing and barcon for easy conversion to 1x5 w/ my trusty XTR M953 setup and Hope SS rear hub. Currently 36-19 for some gravel road cruising here in south Florida.

    My take...

    I'm not sure if this counts but I am posting my Surly LHT with Bontrager 1.8s on it. I built this bike to be simple and fun and I am really enjoying it. The ride is plush and my fit is spot on. I can take it just about anywhere and that is what I love about it.
