    Thanks Man. I knew it was going to be light just because of the parts I wanted to ride but I was suprised. I guess since it's SO close to sub 14lbs I should get some Scrub rotors Huh? ;-)

    You could probably lose those last 30 grams by trimming your brake hoses. Nice ride.

    Custom belt SS

    Here is my freshly rebuilt Fuji tahoe pro 29er with my custom belt drive conversion. I machined a 6061 aluminum coupler, split the frame, welded it in, reheat treated the frame, and powdercoated it. 21 lbs with crappy wheelset, new wheels should shave almost 2lbs off.

    08 Fuji Tahoe 29er pro frame with custom 6061 splice for belt install, powdercoated white
    Nuke proof Carbon rigid fork
    Matrix Carbon bar stem combo
    ESI grips
    Avid Juicy 5 brakes with 160mm rotors
    Crank creek headset
    FSA v-drive cranks powdercoated white
    FSA carbon seatpost
    FSA mega exo BB
    Crankbrothers mallett pedals
    Gates 46/24 cogs, 118T belt
    WTB lazerdisc rims laced to Fuji hubs

    C'mon man, that's not an SS mtb...& not even rigid!

    Well, since you're a mod & it's a nice bike, i'll let it slide.

    By the way...singletrack going to work? That's cool!

    Good job! metrotuned full rigid ss 29er



    above: metrotuned cocaine white full rigid ss 29er

    The XXIX was fun and rode superbly with the 420 a-to-c non-suspension corrected (a 26" 80mm fork) carbon fiber magnesium fork (Pace RC31). It was a huge improvement over the factory unicrown rigid steel fork and a welcome improvement in climbing and agility versus the 80mm Fox F29 RLC.

    Damn guys...you got me rethinking going rigid. My first mountain bike, though it was a 26er, was a 1995 Trek 7000. I rode rigid for 8 yrs and had no problem with it. I think I may have to go at it again....

    I did the same thing in the early 90"s rigid 26er, I swore I would never go back especially after they did away with elastomer forks and moved to air.

    A 29er with some high volume tubeless tires makes a huge difference. I am 18 years older now and I ride more gnarly trials and I dont feel nearly as beat up as I did back then after a ride.

    Go for it!

    Yeah, i'm looking at a Redline Monocog Flight 29er or Surly Karate Monkey right now. They get great reviews and won't break the bank.
    But I do hear you on the larger tires.

    BTW, who has the best prices??

    Here's my beater, as seen elsewhere. Motobecane with OEM headset, cranks, b/b, and wheels- everything else has been upgraded from the parts pile. About 24 pounds. I use it for street thrashing and the occasional dirt jump or beer run. \m/ \m/

    I've had both the Flight and KM (still do in fact). Both great rides - can't go wrong either way. Outdoor Outfitters does pricematch and they were great to deal with when I got my KM.

    My New Karate Monkey!!!!!!

    Disclaimer: I am super pumped about this so I apologize if you see it here, in the SS forum, and the Surly forum. But damn I love this bike!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Well, thanks to DougID I have a new (to me) Karate Monkey frame and fork, and I just finished the build. What a fantastic bike!!!!!!

    Didn’t have time to hit a real trail yet, but took it on the trails behind my house.
















    Best of all, I lost almost 3 lbs on this bike from my last one (lighter tires, no disc brakes, lighter stem, etc… ). Comes in just a hair over 24 lbs.

    Not sure mine qualifies as "fully rigid" with a Thudbuster ST post on it. Regardless, I've been enjoying riding around on it this fall season which is actually very dry this year after one of the muddiest and poor trail conditions summer that I can remember.

    2003 KM size XL (1st time it has been SS for me in all those years via a 29T ring and 16T cog)

    Great looking bike. It's a shame they no longer sell color matching forks. It's one of my favorite things about rigid bikes...

    Attention whore-ish post, but had to do it. Drops for the cyclocross race (and maybe permanently)... (Thank you Saddle-Up for the advice)

    Blue collar...

    When I moved to CO I thought that riding Doo-Doo brown fixed would be far fetched. Well, I was wrong. Love this bike, and I'll ride it til she gives up.

    p.s. there is a freewheel on there as well...

    Great knotwork job on the Mary's chainstay, bigthom. I may try that on my Karate Monkey after I get some practice. How long did that take you to lace up?

    8 years as a sailor...just kidding, bout half an hour. A series of over hand knots started and finished with a round turn and 2 half hitches, bitter end melted and tucked. Use 550 cord, but pull the core out and only use the outer layer.

    2011 Surly KM
    Bought the frame in early November as a birthday present to myself,
    and, to replace my 1994 Cannondale F500.
    I had tested a few 29ers out @ the LBS, and liked them very much.
    Chose the KM for it's versatility, and good reviews on mtbr.
    177.5mm XT square taper cranks, White Industries hubs, and Avid
    Arch-Rival v-brakes came off the F500. Everything else is new.
    Currently running 34/16 gearing for street, but plan on running it dingle
    with 31/19 as my offroad gearing. I'm really enjoyin' this bike!!!

    very nice Karate Monkey! looks great with the brown Brooks too...who would've thought?

    I'm still looking at getting another KM since they lowered the standover, but can't decide...I loved my OG campstove green one but felt it was a bit small for me and the standover on the XL was too much at the time...

    Thanks for the compliment appleSSeed!
    The Brooks is an Aged B17 with a little Doc Martens leather balm applied to the top.
    I was a little uncertain as far as how it would look, but I'm really happy with how it turned out.
    I got my frame and fork for $350 from the LBS.
    That made the decision REALLY easy for me!
    I'm 5'10", with a 32" inseam, and the medium frame fits me perfectly.
    Now, put your decisions to rest and go get one!
