    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.

    Have to add my VooDoo Dambala. 'Bout a month into it and it's still a little slice of heaven. Was real intimidated by the SS/rigid thing, but I'm loving it! This bike is SWEEET!!!

    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.

    You COULD do it on a geared bike, but I wouldn't reccomend it!

    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...
