    I love that Orlowski, too! It looks like it can take on just about anything. Long, long hilly rides over any surface, mmmm...

    For you drop bar riders, watch Tomac rock it. I am not personally a full on drop bar rider but I do ride a On-One Mary and a Spacebar 8 on my road bike.

    Question for you drop bar folks:

    I want to do a 1X9 (or 1X10) conversion on my Inbred. If I want to go with a Shimano group - which bar end shifters are compatible with which rear derailleurs? Are the bar end shifters fine with MTB components?

    I just finished a 1X10 on my 'cross bike, but of course I used all road components, and didn't mix anything BTW, the Paul Chain Keeper has proven to be a super part.

    i'm runnin dura ace 9 speed barcons w/a newer xt shadow 9 speed rear derailleur, i've also used another set of 9 speed barcons to run a lx rear derailleur. i also run friction shifting fwiw. if you look at most of the rivendell built bikes you'd see a lot of 'em built this way. if i get the chance i'll post some pics up later.

    I love when this thread resurfaces!

    The Tomac video brings back the memories. I was racing in SoCal during that time. He kicked my A** way too many times on Chatsworth group rides. Even converted my Yeti FRO with a drop bar for a while. We were referred to as "Yeti Privateers" back in the day. Basically a bunch of wannabees paying our own dime to wave the Yeti flag. Ahh...such memories!

    For the last four years, I have been riding a Niner MCR frame and fork set up with midge bars. Arch rims w/ 38mm Kenda Kross Extreme tires. Lots of fun! Most versatile bike I own.

    I am running Dura ace barcons w/SRAM 9spd cassette and XO der. . Needs an adapter though. You can buy an adapter for several shifter/der. combos. Can not remember company name at the moment. (want to say Avid) Let me know if you need additional info. I will try to help.

    Good luck with the new setup.

    Singular Gryphon

    Rather than post the same pics in 3 threads, here is a link to my post of the new Singular Gryphon I just put together. Haven't taken it out on the trail yet, as we just got a foot of snow last night! Trails are way too wet to ride!

    Gotta love "spring" in Utah!

    The shakedown ride around the yard/neighborhood (before the storm) felt really good, can't wait to try it in the dirt!

    My new SS Inbred 29er:





    A pretty conventional build: WTB Single Duty rear hub, XT front, Mavic TN719 rims, Maxxis Crossmarks F+R, old Deore Hollowtech cranks with Middleburn ring, Thomson post, Spesh saddle, Midges, BB7s. Amazing fun to ride.

    First ride today in the East Midlands of the UK - and my first MTB since I sold my '99 Kona Cinder Cone a few years back, though I have been riding my monstercrossed Cotic Roadrat off road for a year or so. First post on here too (though I've been lurking for a while), so hi.

    I took my Fargo out for the first time for some real single track riding. I've ridden off road drops before, but I might need to make it a major part of my off road riding--it's a good time.

    Hydros and drops

    Sorry if this has been done but may l ask about hydros and drops. I would like to ride drops but only have hydro brakes. Is there a getto fix, type of bar or advice you could give. I have Jones bars and like them alot but would like to get lower without inverting stems.
    Cheers

    Drop-bar elMar on a shakedown ride this morning. Really enjoyed the leverage I could get while climbing- instead of rocking the bike with wide risers, I could pull front-back and really keep the rear wheel planted.

    Here's my latest build. It's a special Ti Salsa that isn't actually a model they produce. One of their employees had it built to test some design concepts as they were working on the Ti Fargo. When he recently decided to divest it from his collection, I took a deep breath and stepped up to the plate. This is Ti Salsa #3 for me, so this is probably the last purchase I'll be making for a while...

    Thanks, the Luxys are really nice - the bend fits my hands/arms really well and the wide flare gives great leverage on climbs, almost like two different bars. There's quite a bit of "give" when you use your arms climbing, but it's a pleasant feeling actually.

    It'll be interesting to see if the width makes them tricky/scary between the trees when more single track opens up as the snow goes away.

    Thanks,
    The drivetrain is SLX 2x9. The bar-end shifts work fine - precise shifting, the front shifter is friction mode and the rear shifter is indexed mode. Only problem is to reach the shifters during speedy single track maneuvering.

    I see a lot of bar-end shifters and brifters, but has anyone tried using either a grip shift or trigger shifter (X0 or X9) mounted near the stem & regular (Tektro or Cane Creek) levers? My concern about bar-ends is shifts on the fly in tight spaces - I'd rather not take my hands off the bar. Would the drop bar diameters be too much for the triggers?

    I have a Rock Lobster with bar ends and the old Diacompe brake levers. After you get used to the bar ends, you find you do not have to take your hands off the bars, your little fingers get very adept at flipping the lever. You just slide your hand back until the bar end lever is between your pinky and ring fingers, so thumb and four fingers still have a grip. If you need to grab brakes, flip your pinky out and slide forward to the hooks with two fingers to the levers.

    Keep in mind that you want the bike setup so that you spend most of the time on the drops, especially in tricky terrain, so they are right there. And you learn to anticipate a little better than you do with regular MTB thumbies.

    I love the bikes here. Great inspiration. I have to admit I use this site for my drop bar 26er Not as cool as these but I get looks everywhere I go with it.

    Can I post it anyway?

    Hi, great thread here !
    One -stupid- question :
    Is there somewhere a page listing all of the brands of the mountain drop bars available ?
    maybe some comparison ?
    I'm building a cross tourer 36er bike and would like to use this kind of bars.
    Thanks !

    Twenty Nine Inches | News and Reviews for 29er Bikes will be your best bet for comparisons besides the search here. There have been a few postings here, but GT over
    Twenty Nine Inches | News and Reviews for 29er Bikes has a far better comparison, since he is a drop bar junkie like others of us.

    Thanks Slocaus, I've been reading a review of the Salsa Woodchipper by guitar ted there.
    I'll investigate more to find the other brands he might have reviewed.

    I just recently wrapped the shifter cables all the way to the stem. Shifts the same and a lot cleaner, was getting leaves jammed into my cables while riding singletrack and I have no idea how expect our stuff is real tight singletrack.

    There aren't too many that are readily available:

    - Salsa Woodchipper
    - On One Midge
    - WTB dirt drop
    - Origin 8 Gary

    That's all I can think off the top of my head.

    Is there somewhere a page listing all of the brands of the mountain drop bars available ?
    maybe some comparison ?
    I'm building a cross tourer 36er bike and would like to use this kind of bars.
    Thanks !

    Velo - very nice bike, can you tell me a little more about your fat front setup:

    - rim?
    - tire width?
    - distance between fork legs?

    Thanks!
