    My SS Gellie Custom. First shot is pre ride 2 years ago. Columbus tubing with a mixture of White Industries, Paul and Thomson kit. I know V Brakes are so 1990's but I am a dinosaur. Is set up as fixed for races at the moment for extra laughs.

    I wanted to be able to run std gears, hub gears SS and maybe even belt

    so this is the first version it rides really well nimble and fast climbs well
    Whoa whoa whoa !! Talk about out of the blue. 16.4" chainstays huh ?

    You need to start a new thread about this whole project. Tell us more about how you got it made if you can. Are you going to be selling them ? That is really interesting.

    I'm enjoying the RIP all decked out as an XC race bike these days....

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/7166535@N05/5595204388/" title="Rip post L.A. lap by singingsingletracker, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5091/5595204388_06260c35cc_b.jpg" width="1024" height="829" alt="Rip post L.A. lap"></a>

    A little under 28 pounds for the size XL.

    here are a couple of links to some coverage of my bike ,, currently it's a bit of an experiment , to see how a very short chainstay 29er will work

    i am currently riding this around it;s certainly nimble and quick and clibs really well but could be a little stiffer, lighter and narrower at the rear ,, so I am currently working on the drawings for the next version

    this will have the option of going even shorter on the chainstay

    i would like to produce a limited batch but not sure enough people will be interested

    Love the idea of the design but I'm sure it's hard to control flex at the BB? Still keep us up to date.

    BB flex big time. Why do think no one makes frames that way?

    I wanted to build a short chainstay bike with lots of mud clearence

    this version isnt too bad , but not stiff enough to run a belt drive , but some diamond frames cant either

    I may be wrong but what is the difference between this frame and a single pivot suspension bike in terms of structure

    i am currently working on the next one

    i have decided to not have the option to run a FD which means i can lower the chainstay down the seat tube

    bigger downtube

    and redo the adjustable dropout currently it gives a chainstay length of 417 - 437 it will now be 407 - 427 now there is no FD

    Flex is there with some FS designs. But, it's hard to feel with the suspension working and some of the force will be transmitted into the suspension. With FS there is going to be a pivot with gussets to add strength.

    Add another Kona to the crowd, here's my race bike a 2009 Kona King Kahuna with a set of Industry nine wheels and a few upgrades here and there.







    I have a rigid Misfit too, but it's due for some fresh photos.

    Had to have something appropriate for testing new tires...

    So I just finished building this up:









    And I've still got the hardtail:



    And the XC Full Suspension:



    Can you tell I like this wheelsize?

    Yes, that's the Prime. It's a pre-production frame. Honestly I don't see many changes made for production- just a couple refinements like the orientation of the ISCG05 tabs. Fun, fun, fun!

    I really dig your Paradox. How's that seatpost been (reliability-wise)?

    I have two KS i950 posts. Regularly lubed & maintained.

    One is from 2008/09 when they first came out - no problems.

    The one purchased last summer ... failed first ride. ala pogo stick.

    Sent it to KS, back in a week, all is fine now.

    What a sleeper! It probably only weighs around 19 and yet looks for all the world like some old fat tire cruiser bike but it is actually riding on sew ups with ultra light wheels that spin up super fast.

    Here is mine. It's one of those bikeisland.com 4130 steel 29ers. I posted this on a couple of threads before.



    Since the initial build I burned up the cassette middle chainring and chain and found a totally sweet deal on the Shimano Dyna-sys group on ye olde liste of craig's; so I swapped that out. I also picked up the Stan's Arch wheelset and the 2.2 WTB Bronson tires. This has since become my only mountain bike except for my Bianchi for commuting and doing road rides in D.C.

    A little part spec. and short story on a few bits and pieces.

    Frame: 4130 17” frame
    Fork: RST M-29
    Headset: LP Components Loose Ball Bearing headset (used to be a Cane Creek 40, but it kept on loosening up because the bearings wouldn't sit correctly in the cups. I put in the LP headset that came with the bike so I could ride the bike while waiting for a new headset. Cane Creek did come through with flying colors on that one, I just never put in the replacement headset and now it's in my parts box. The loose ball headset works great though.)
    Crankset: Shimano M-552 (used to be a Shimano SLX 9 speed which is now on my SS)
    BB: Shimano SLX
    F-derailleur: Shimano XT Dyan-Sys
    R-derailleur: Shimano XT Dyna-Sys
    Chain: Shimano HG-74
    F-brake: Avid BB7
    R-brake: Avid BB7
    Brake levers: Avid Speed Dial SL
    Shift levers: Shimano SLX Dyna-Sys
    Cog set: Shimano HG-81 11-36
    Wheelset: Stan's Arch 29er
    Tubes: TUBELESS!!!
    Front tire: WTB Bronson TCS 2.2
    Rear tire: WTB Bronson TCS 2.2
    Handlebar: Easton EA50 (This used to be a Titec Hellbent Prolite which was great, but I like the additional width the EA50 provides and I have always preferred a flatbar.)
    Stem: Answer Atac 105mm 0 degree rise
    Pedal: shimano m520
    Saddle: E3 Form (The worst saddle known to man. I broke the WTB I had on there in a crash. It's just on here until I get a Bontrager Evoke saddle)
    Seatpost: Kalloy Uno
    Grip: Lizard Skin Lockon

    @ knutso; I really like the look of that Curtlo with the OG Cane Creek shock too. Sick, very sick.

    They should be stronger then any steel, Ti, Al or Mg fork.

    I think he was thinking that since the fork can't compress under braking, it would be more likely to flip.

    What if that Steel, TI or Alum fork has a 20mm thru axle? (Did I just blow your mind!)

    I bought this custom titanium 29er used as a complete on eBay in the fall and for me it's the bigbike to end all bigbikes.

    Rear derailleur: SRAM X9 short cage
    Brakes: Avid Elixir CR, 180f/160r
    Cassette: SRAM 1051 12-36
    Hubs: Hope Pro II, DT Swiss 10mm through-bolt rear, QR15 front
    Rims: Notubes ZTR Flow, 32 hole
    Tires: Schwalbe Racing Ralph 2.4 front, 2.25 rear

    Ritchey stem is so light (103grams for 100mm) but so stiff and most importantly very beautiful... Thanks.
