    My one and only ride; I do love my XXIX.









    No, your eyes aren't messing with you; my chain really was that messed up that (below) ride Required much side flexing to get some of those links to open back up. Even more odd is I'm a serial over luber

    Here is an updated picture of my Origin 8 Scout with a Surly KM fork. The front tire is a Purgatory 2.4" while the rear is a 2.2". I also have a SLX/XT 1 x 10 setup should I decide to run gears.

    That Cotail is so good looking!

    Here's my Zion. Anyone care to inform me on the ZION bike company? I've been riding this bike for 8 months but I know very little about them and who they are/were.

    That white Zion looks great! However, the chain seems to need some tensioning.

    My wife has a Zion 737 that I built up in 2008. Bought one of the last framesets from Jenson.

    Any reason you are running a bash on the inside of the chain, instead of outside? On a SS I suppose it doesn't matter, but the rest of us sheep (me included) usually run it on the outside...

    Just curious, nice bike!

    Edit- wanted to be clear, no offense meant, just wondering!

    Generally you adjust the chainline at the rear and this would leave higher probability of a sock or something getting caught in the chain. Also, in a crash, there is more likely-hood of injury from the chain/chainring stabbing the leg. Unless there is some mechanical reason not to, I would reverse it for safety concerns.


    Edit-I am also not trying to be critical or pick a fight etc. Just trying to contribute to the common good.

    On that basis (being critical/picking a fight), why do you bother having a bash on a fully rigid SS full stop??

    Not bashing, just concerned with safety mostly. If you just jump on the bike for a test ride in the driveway with pants on it is likely to get caught in the chain. Like I said, my comments are for the common good.

    I use an MRP XCG BB-mounted bash to protect the precious Rotor Q-ring chain ring from rock ledges, logs and other obstacles I may fail to hop over or navigate through in an orderly fashion.

    Hey, I just like the way it looks!

    Living in New England, I often ride with pants and I've never gotten my pants caught in the chain.

    Also, the chain looks a bit loose in the picture but its never once dropped on me.

    Sometimes I just like to try things out, the reverse bash has been one of things that has stuck across all my bikes. There's something nice about seeing the whole chain line.

    Finished this one a couple nights ago. Still have to put my Gobi saddle on it, and egg beater pedals in place of the "tester" platforms. But itching to get out on it soon.

    This is my Spot Brand Rocker. I have not had to touch the belt drive in the 3 years I've owned it. I feel like getting something different, but have not found a bike I like more.

    Bianchi Sok

    Picked this thing up for a song hardly used with nice carbon bits such as a Ritchey carbon bar and stem. I removed the boat anchor Tora Air fork and installed the Niner fork shown. I also added the sweet RDO post. Came with BB7 Road (pictured) but recently changed to the 2012 MTB versions. Size XL comes in at around 21.5 lbs with super heavy wheels.

    Thing's a rocket ship! This pic s*cks. Better one later.

    Posted this to SlimJim thread already but why not to put it here also. The plan is to ride rigid fork at least for the winter and then decide whether to put the suspension fork back on or not.

    With pedals that heavy old Brooks B17, I think it was just a whisker over 10 kg. It was built for longevity and possible touring, so not as light as some. Still climbs like a demon - the limiting factor on this bike is definately the owner!

    First ride

    I wished it was May, dry and warm with birds singing in the forest. I wasn't. It was January 6th, just below freezing and a mix of collapsing snow crust and ice. Not ideal conditions for a first ride on the new bike. It was hard to get a good flow and get a feel for the bike but it was fun to finally ride it.

    My first 29er is a fully rigid SS 29er. :)

    I bought this Seven Cycles Zeal SLX a few days and I need to update it with better saddle/seatpost/clamp, disc brake, crankset and stem/handlebar/grip. Hopefully it will be around 20Lbs. when it is finished.

    Wasn't this "upgrade" to the system supposed to help weed out the SPAMming idiots?

    Bike related content... Love the black Niner JRSS13!

    A question... I had some Ardents when the first came out and they were shockingly heavy. Has that changed? I'm just curious with all the light parts that many people use I'm often surprised to see people using quite heavy tires like the Ardents or the new Onzas.

    Yea, I started a thread about how bad the new format is.

    Ardent 2.4 29er tires are in the class of tire I call "Monster Truck Tires" I would put the old Stouts (non longer made) in that class and they weighed close to 1000 grams and I would also put current Nevegals in that class and they weigh over 800. The Ardents that weigh right around 800 are actually the lightest available "Monster Truck Tires" "Monster Truck Tires" will go when other tires won't. I am currently running an Ardent 2.4 front and Nevegal 2.2 rear on my Jet9 and it is my "Monster Truck" bike. If you want or need the kind of performance that Ardent's can deliver then the weight is not significant and actually pretty good.

    Thanks for the comments on the bike. I'm happy the way it came out. The ardents are around 800 grams each. I will gladly trade off the extra couple hundred grams for the extra volume. I live in Western ny (buffalo area), and our trails are filled with roots. The extra volume will help smooth things out with my carbon fork

    JRSS13. Just a data point, but I have run the ARdent on the front of my full rigid and have found I like the Slant6 better. It has less volume, but the sidewalls are more compliant and since it weighs less the big hits don't seem to have as much force either. It also has a taller center so the contact patch is more long and narrow. Between the narrower casing and the narrower profile it seems like it hits a lot less stuff too. I realize everyone is different, but my current favorite setup for a full rigid is Slant6 front and Ikon Rear. And this would not be true if the situation called for all out max traction, then a pair of Ardents would win out or Ardent front Nevegal rear.

    Sorry for the hijack.

    On my rigid SS I have opted for Nobby Nic 2.35" as these are a tiny bit lighter than the Ardents and seem to me to be about the same volume. Probably only saves 100g though...

    I am a big fan of maxxis tires, and I was going to get a 2.4 ardent for my Unit, but I just heard about the new 2.3 Ikon going to be released, so I think I will wait and try that one out. I loved the 2.2 version!

    I heard the 2.3 Ikon was not going to be available until around late July. Don't know how reliable the info was it was the local MTB club Facebook group.

    Civilian Luddite arrives under heavy guard in Afghanistan

    My 23" frame Civilian Luddite finally arrived by USPS at Mazar E Shariff in northern Afghanistan. It is definitely the nicest looking bike around. The seat is up so high on this 23 that an Afghan couldn't steal it. So far just riding inside the fence. Could have used a higher handle bar setup but otherwise very pleased.

    Not very special, completly original 2012 Kona Unit.
    Delivered 4 days ago.
    Upgrading will start around 500km, when I know what the bike needs to be better. So far, very happy with it.

    That's secure, but wouldn't a U lock be more convenient?

    Not new to the singlespeed world, but I just built my first 29er. Started as a Nashbar SS (de-badged SE Stout). Switched out wheels, fork and cockpit and shaved about 6lbs.
