    Thanks, yeah I did a short ride on just on the creekside trail. Mine could use some christmas presents too I'm thinking tires, saddle and grips. Do you have kenda small block 8s? How do you like them, do you ever have traction problems on more serious trails?

    I love an SB8 as a rear tire better than anything. I am regretting, however, running it as a front tire. Plenty of grip on climbs and such at Felasco, but I need a more confident tire of front for railing turns.

    Just ordered a Maxxis Instigator for the front and will run SB8 out back.

    Looks like you have Nevegals on front and back. You have a PM proposal...

    I haven't been on any other 29rs enough to analyze and report the comparison, but I love my Jabber+ODIS and wouldn't trade it for any I have ridden so far.

    Gorgeous bike! What ratio are you using?

    Also, i really like your quote about your other bikes collecting dust after starting to ride SS rigid.... ...only those who ride SS rigid know.

    I run a 32 up front with a 20,19,18 or 17 out back depending on conditions, type of ride or race and time of year. Right now its set up with a 20 for the snowy conditions. I use mostly an 18 in the summer.

    I like this bike so much I am thinking about a fat tire SS for really extreme conditions. Next move is possibly selling my suspension rig.

    I'm pretty sure that your SS with a 17 out back has to fly ...super ! I ride a steel Jamis with a 33/20 all year long. I ride mostly dry and loose over hardpack with the ocassional baseball sized sections. I need the 20 out back because of those hills on every trail i ride. No such thing as flats on this island ! Besides that, i can climb all the hills that geared guys do, even where they need 22 x 34 i do on my 33/20. Isn't SS awesome !

    Funny as it may sound i sold my FS inmediately after getting my SS. I tinkered somewhat with the suspension fork it came with, until i decided it was useless to carry extra lbs for a rare commodity.

    Who knows, if i ever decide to have a road bike...it might as well be SS ! Love the workout !

    I run a 32 x 17 on my S.I.R.9 and never had any issues, although my trails are all moderate grades. The only time I would've liked to go to a lower gear was in the snow. I'm a firm believer that SS is the best option for mountain biking..period.

    I'm also a believer !! Having ridden geared hardtail and FS ... not forgetting SS rigid with coaster brakes as a kid ... no option surpasses rigid SS for me Plus, teaching and showing the virtues of this setup to other riders is quite fun too

    Well this is close enough I guess, this is my Fisher Sawyer built up as a fixed gear for winter training. The full coverage fenders and XR-1's are awesome on snow packed streets and in the slush. I'm thinking of taking her off road for a laugh in the spring. I'm not your average fixie guy, my daily ride is a 25lb carbon 6" bike, but they're great training bikes and make slippery winter rides much more exciting. She's starting to show a little surface rust, my ghetto rattle can clear coat didn't last long, I'm planning on stripping her down and putting on a more professional clear coat in the spring.

    The blob near the BB is my light's battery, wrapped in a sock, inside a plastic bag.

    just a little surface rust, no biggie, gives it character. The bike is a preproduction frame, thus the lack of paint. I gave it a quick rattle can clear coat job before building it but that's already starting to come off. As I said I'll be taring it down and re-painting in the spring. I'm hoping to find a good way to clear coat over the surface rust, I like the rusty metal look on this bike.

    Just picked up my 2011 Kona Unit 22" from a LBS yesterday.





    Had to add a little bling!



    I would like to raise the handlebar since the top of the bar is 3" below the top of the seat. Any suggestions at the following thread would be appreciated.
