    First I would like to thank MTBR. I did a lot of research on parts and set up on here. You guys helped make this possible.

    Kent Eriksen sweetpost 27.2 x 400
    WTB Rocket V
    Truvativ AKA cranks
    MRP bling ring
    Sram Ceramic GXP bottom bracket
    Sram PG-1070 11-36 cassette
    Sram x9 short cage rear derailleur
    KMC X10SL-TI chain
    Sram x9 shifter
    Gore ride on shift cable
    ngear jump stop
    Shimano 520 pedals
    Shimano XT m785 brakes
    Icetech 160mm rotors front and rear
    Hadley thru bolt hubs
    Arch EX 32h, 3 cross front rim

    Nice Build!

    There is nothing like building a bike (I did it with a Paragon I built 3 years ago--my first bike) I built that 'just to ride it'--not specifically components I waned at first.

    Then 2 years ago I bought all the compents I really wanted!! --Then 2 months ago it cracked (2005 Paragon)---but now built up a Superfly 2012 (with my compenents from Paragon Build)------But in a few months I now want to get some improvements (because the new frame is worth it!!)

    Very nice, glad you're so stoked on your new bike Seriously glad you like it and think it's perfect, but if you can, give a wider bar a try (think 710mm>) since you already have the short stem on there I'm thinking you might find you like it even better than that 685mm bar
    One day your life will flash before your eyes, will it be worth watching??

    after having a bell, i can't see riding without one
    so much nicer to hear a bell versus just screaming out

    Have you experienced any issues with the chain jumping off the outside of the crank?

    I was going to ask the same thing. With a non "clutch" rear derailleur I think in super rough terrain there might be. An e13 or mrp 1x might work better long term.

    BTW, that's a VERY solid looking build. Well done sir!

    Reason why I asked, I am only running the N-gear guide as well. Went out for a ride today and almost destroyed my rear wheel. Chain slipped off on the outside and got tangled up in the rear wheel. Was able to stop in time before it snapped any spokes. Close call, decided to run a bash guard after all.

    Hope you don't experience the same issue.

    x9 long cage. Unfortunately, decided to go 1x9 shortly after buying everything for a 3x9. Go figure.

    yeah, a short cage will hold the chain better

    As of now, the standard middle ring from a triple crank. Swapping to truvativ AKA cranks, and running the stock ring.

    a single speed ring has longer teeth so it will be less likely to jump

    Thanks for the info. Did not know that.

    I'll try running without the bash guard and see how that goes. I'll update the thread if anyone else is interested.
