    @Longhaultrucker- I love the jabber. Gots one myself. Some people say it's preference, but I highly recommend running that front brake line on the inside of the fork. On the Reba- you need two zip ties- one on the bridge and one on the lower just under the bridge/ stanchion. Run it inside to avoid it getting caught on anything and it will also line up with the caliper a little better.

    2011 Orbea Alma 29er

    Just getting the finishing touches done - a little dirty and need to cut the steerer tube, but it's been fast so far....just under 24 pounds now.

    here's my beastie

    6480g or 14.2lb a9c niner air 9 carbon - 29.03.11 #9019 v2

    6480g or 14.2lb 1x10 a9c niner air 9 carbon - 29.03.11 #9009 v2
    niner air nine carbon's now even more fun to stomp with 1x10 (36t + 11-32)

    Superfly 100 (2010)

    Ok, I had to post. I love this bike so much!

    To give a little bike background. 2007-2009 rode a Tomac Synper 140 (26") and last year I rode an Epic 29er. I just came off a 2011 Lynskey Ridgeline

    The Superfly 100 has been my favorite so far. Believe the hype my friends. It handles great (cornering and tight cockpit) and climbs like a mountain goat. I was worried at first about pedal bob (coming off an Epic and Lynskey) but that was laid to rest after my first ride.

    The Superfly is a GREAT XC bike with all the best qualities - just my opinion.

    Here's my break down:
    - 2010 Superfly 100 and Fox F29 RLC G2 Offset Fork
    - Stan's Crest 29er Wheelset with American Classic Hubs (1460 Grams)
    - Niner Carbon Flat Bar (sweet bar!)
    - XX Crankset - XT Pedals
    - XX Shifters
    - XX Rear Derailleur and Cassette
    - X0 Front Derailleur
    - Avid Elixir Brakes and Rotors
    - Bontrager Race XXX Lite Carbon Seatpost
    - Specialized Phenom Saddle
    - Thomson Elite Stem

    actually no, lot's people are running 1x10 (or 1x9) without guides

    i've not had any issues at all stomping the crankset as hard as my little legs can muster - XX medium RD is keeping perfect chain tension

    might make one though

    ...2 days later edit...

    just a tad paranoid now about the chain jumping while at full kilter - so ordered an e.13 chain guide last night ...after building that a9c i'm too skint to afford any hospital bills

    Dang, I haveNt seen too many, lol. But then again, I haven't seeno too many sub 15lb mtn bikes neither :-P

    And yeah, go for it and make your own, I know this guy who works at a cnc shop and he made a real sweet one for cross.

    But that excites me about the tension on the xx med cage rear derailleur, mines sitting in a box just begging to be put on my bike :-D

    Mine stays dirty, I swear.

    I'm not name-calling. I'm just listing the facts. The fact is that you did NOT have 6in inserted----alexrex20

    Shorter stem. Wider bars. Love this bike even more!

    (bar plugs are on the way.)

    @EGF168:

    Do these ugly stickers on the rims come off easily?

    I hate them on my 29er FSR comp,
    but until now I thought that they´d leave ugly traces and stuff?

    The Expert looks great in that stickerless trim!

    Greetings Znarf

    They come off easy enough…but leave some glue behind. Removing the remaining glue isn’t hard but would have been faster if I could find my white spirit.

    I think the whole bike looks a lot better without them!
