    Without digging through the thread, can someone with a small frame and 100mm fork measure standover about the front of the chainrings??

    Thanks in advance

    So after doing some digging I discovered that my X9 rear derailer is actually a type 2, I suspect this is why I haven't suffered from chain slap problems or despite not having a chain guide dropped chain! I think for now I'm going to go to change guide less and see what happens. Great info folks thanks!

    Is there anyone running SS that wants to sell me their front derailleur adapter? Canfield has been back ordered on these since August!

    I'm in the same boat as Rodger Dodger.

    I'm converting mine from a SS to a 1x9, but Sean at Canfield said they are out of stock of the FD adapter for the Nimble 9.

    Let me know if anyone has one, too.

    Thanks!

    To keep your chain from falling off.

    I picked up a white Brothers Rock Solid fork in the 490mm axle to crown length for my N9, just need to get a post mount adapter to finish it up. With my cheesy angle finder, it looks like head angle is 69.5 degrees or so.
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.

    Yeah the pedals were a hit but I'm liking that they seem to want to spin and spin and spin ... I have MG-1s on other bikes and they seem to have a dead spot where you have to roll the blocky pedal body over. Could be psychological too

    We were lucky here, no trees down at the Park at all. I heard the Kanawha Trace trails had problems with it though.

    I emailed Sean to ask that and he basically said tight, then a little tighter. They can't slip forward with the screws in the dropout, and mine haven't slid back either.

    His words follow:
    The drop out bolts should be tightened VERY firmly. Pretty much
    tighten the bolt all the way and go back and give each 1 a 1/8-1/4 turn.
    Once these are tight, you will have no issues with rear wheel coming out
    of adjustment.

    FWIW, working on rigging up an N-gear jump stop to work so I can set up 1x9 when cables show up tomorrow. Pretty simple, I just welded two nuts to the end of a piece of 5/16" fuel line go offset it back from the seat post, The blobs shown in the photo are spot welds that I'll grind down on the final version. I'm not sure I've got it set back far enough yet though.

    I finally remembered to measure this ... Small frame, Manitou Minute 100mm, 2.3 tires, about 29" at the front of the chainring. Hopefully you already got this info before now though.
