    Do it Martini

    [QUOTE=~martini~]That's teh hotness.

    Thanks

    Home built and lugged. Am I evar gonna get off my ass and do that? Like I keep threatening to do? I see this and I know its possible...

    Best thing you can do is just buy the tubes. I went into it thinking I would have it finished in a year, taking my time between work & family, going slow to do it right. Finished it in 3 months.
    Main thing to remember is to take your time. I got a little hasty and cut the down tube a half inch to short. Instead of waiting for another tube to get here I altered the geo making the eff top tube to short. So this bike is going to my Dad and I get to some different things while building #2.
    Here are some specs for those who care.
    Tubes: Columbus Life, Zona, and Deda
    lugs: Slant 6
    BB: LB-109
    Crown: Everest cyclocross 28.6
    Dropouts: Paragon disc

    Measurements:
    Eff TT=625mm 12° slope
    ST center to center=490mm
    HT=175mm
    BB drop= 60mm
    Fork is the same length as a Instigator fork but with 50mm offset
    71.5° ST and HT
    Paint is rattle can> Decals are cut from brown 3M reflective tape

    now the trick question : is a Slingshot with rigid fork considered a rigid?
    It is when you're standing up.

    i actually got 5 on there.

    32-26-21-16-12 the 12 is a old twist tooth shimano threaded cog to lock them on.

    i love the spacing and the stiff rear ss dishless wheel.

    I'm not familiar with VooDoo cycles, but I will look. I like the curve to it for more give and bump handling. Reminds me of my original MTBs back in 1979-90.

    I know about steel - I have four of them, all rigid SS!

    One old unridden 26" full sussy is going on the auction block, and then I plan to do a front suspension geared hard tail 29er, steel, of course.

    Neither was I before getting this...heck, I hadn't ridden rigid in about 10 years! While the fork isn't as big of a name as say, Salsa, Surly, etc., I really like the way it feels. I had thought it would be the first thing I would want to upgrade, but now I'm pretty content with it, at least for most of the trails around central NC.

    HA! Good eye man! Thanks for the apology, but no worries about that! That has to be the most crowded climb/decent at Crabtree.

    My buddy and I were drooling over your Monocog Flight 29er. Real nice ride you got there! Was that from AllStar or did you build it up yourself?

    I had thought about stopping you to ask what tires and gearing ratio you're running.

    I've got Kenda Karma's front and back and I'm running 32 tooth up front and 16 in back. The Karma rolls ez but I'm thinking of getting something a little more aggro for the front. And the gearing ratio is pretty good so far, but sometimes I wish I had something a little tougher to push.

    Here's a picture from the first race I've done on my MC 29er, just this past weekend. Raced it in my normal Sport class, and had my best race evar and finally got into the top ten. Big wheels are magic.
    Almost stock MonoCog with clipless pedals, Avid v-brakes and levers, and Oury grips.

    Congrats on your finish! Did you stick with your regular trail gearing or go with something different for the race?

    I ran the gear I thought was best for that particular trail. I took it up for a preride a few days before the race with a 17 on the back, but felt like I was a little behind the gear on the climbs. I put an 18 on for the second lap that day, and felt like it was just right. I still change them pretty often, I guess I'm not down to using one gear for every trail, yet. Still a new singlespeeder.

    Meh, there's something to be said for having the bike "set" and always knowing what to expect from it (uber simplified approach) as well as configuring it just the way you like for the different trails you ride (get the most out of the bike every time). Takes all sorts.

    I agree on both counts. If you're going riding at a new place, pick a gearing you're very familiar with so you know what to expect. Probably 32x18 is a good place to start on a 29er, from my observations so far. But if you've ridden somewhere before and had a chance to try out different gearings to find the best one, then getting the most out of the bike is probably the best option.

    Well, there I was excited about finally having a digital camera, and I stuck my post somewhere in the middle of the thread. So, here it goes again so it's now where it should be, at the end of the line. Sorry to those of you who are subscribed and have now had to see it twice...

    No Vultures???

    I can't believe that there aren't any Vutures in this threat!! Must add one. By far my favorite bike in the stable.

    Built this up in July. I really need to get more pics of it but have been busy riding it.

    ..and yes, I know the shimano rotors were on backwards, but have since replaced them with the proper formula ones.....

    That is absolutely one of the most gorgeous bikes I have ever seen! The silver components and Brooks saddle, with the white and gray paint is a subtle, simple, elegant classic, even though it is newish. Well shown!

    CLASS! Looks like something you'd want to ride for many, many years to come.

    Very nicely done.

    Not as beautiful as the Retrotec above but accessorized in the same frame of mind.

    First ride on my new build, an Air 9 1x9. Mt. Diablo in the background, a great day for a ride. My teenage son holding the bike because it was so windy.

    Jamis Exile 29

    New to me Jamis Exile 29 frameset built up with various bits both old and new.

    Lots of firsts for me as I've never owned a 29er or a rigid fork or a single speed or even a hard tail!

    Only a few rides on it so far and too many differences from my FS 26" to compare, but I will say I LIKE IT

    My On-One is over a year old. This is the most incredible bike I ride (I have three 29ers, five if the two 700c mofo tire beasts count). I've had many mountain bikes since 1979, but this one makes me go "Wow!" every time I get on. Recent updates to carbon fork and drop bars.

    My one and only 29er...

    Black Sheep High Roller with Highlight tubing, truss fork, paragon dropouts, Rohloff specific sliders, Rohloff Speedhub, Martas, XTR crankset, Mary bar, Delgado Race Disc, DT 240 front hub, Masterpiece seatpost, and KMC 710 SL chain. The hydraulic lines are long because I'm waiting for a custom bend Ti bar.

    I can't seem to stop riding it!!!

    Rigid bikes are coming back more and more. Together with 29" wheels and big tyres they are the most fun XC-machines there is to ride! Here is mine:

    2008 Monocog 29er in Hawaii

    Here is my 2008 Redline Monocog 29er. So far I really dig it. I always wanted a Redline BMX bike when I was a kid and now some 25 yrs later I have one for adults.

    Seven Cycles Verve

    Custom Ti frame, Pace RC29 carbon fork, Phil Wood Singlespeed hub (rear), Shimano XT hub (front), Bontrager Carbon handlebars, Thomson seat post and stem, White Industries freewheel (currently running 32:19), Geax Saguaro 2.2 on the rear, WTB Exiwolf 2.3 on the front.

    Seven does a magnificent job on getting the frame exactly where you want it. The ride quality is in a class of it's own. Sure, it's a lot of cabbage, but it's oh so sweet!

    I like the rigid 29er singlespeed format. I train and race on this bike exclusively, and the only time I feel the need for a shock is in the heavy rock gardens, or when racing down a technical descent.

    GT peace 9er

    Well, my first 29er, but not my first rigid (that was a Bridgestone MB-3). Even though this thing weighs close to 28 lbs, it still seems to climb hills less than 100 feet with an explosive power. Paint color is great, parts selection is what you would expect for the price ($600 or so).

    Overall, love what this is doing for my handling skills.

    Are those Midge bars? They look like they might be flared a little bit wider than Midges, but maybe just the angle.

    my soma juice with a willits WOW fork

    here's a picture of my new favorite thing in the world (my son is now one year old, so he's not new for the purposes of this post).

    with thanks to Miker J for many of the ingredients, i had the bike built up wes williams at <a href=http://www.willitsbikes.com/>willits</a>. he was already making and painting the WOW fork for me, so i figured i'd get him to build the bike. it fits great, and it's a blast to ride. the WOW fork is a lot of fun. it's got terrific flex, and takes out just enough of the little jarring bumps in the trail to keep it fun for a long ride.

    you'll notice a couple custom bits on the bike that are worth noting: first, Miker J put a custom lexan ring around the freewheel to prevent the chain from jumping in, and my wife and wes thought that the formerly-black bontrager stem clashed against the ti bar and other aluminum colored handlebar stuff, so wes bead-blasted it, but covered up the logo, so you can still see it.

    my future additions are to substitute the saddle and to move my clipless pedals over.

    Spot Brand 29er SS. I've owned many bikes, a few of them utterly badass... but never have I loved a bike this much.

    Note the new Brooks leather grips. Bling, singlespeed style.
