    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!

    Chain line consideration perhaps?

    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.

    Personally I like the way someone is thinking out of the box; testing a new paradigm; pushing the envelope (yep - been working with Management Consultants...)

    Or doing something just plain different....

    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.
