    I want to play:

    Gen1 Sir9 powdercoated with Niner Carbon fork painted black. Flow rims, Niner Flat Bar and a nice edition to a full rigid is the Cannondale Flash 29er seatpost.


    If you look closely you might notice that I have 2 speeds. I have a 32 and a 34 up front and use the 34 as a bash in the hills. I have a 19 and 17 on the rear. I run 32-19 on the trail and if I want to take this bike on a run around town I can drop the rear wheel a little and swap the chain in 30 seconds and go from 49 gear inches to 58 gear inches. If you look very closely you will see a little sag in the chain, this is because it will be perfect on the 34-17 and a little looser on the 32-19. If you do this, you will have to adjust the chain on the biggest chainring and it will be a little loose on the smaller ring combo.

    I also have another SS that has a suspension fork that I can't swap the gears on in case someone wants to complain about my 2 gear bike.

    That's pretty handy! I was too dumb to realize how easy it is to change gears. Thanks for explaining it! haha

    I usually only go fully rigid for the winter, buy may just keep this setup year-round. I'm having a lot of fun with it even in the rocks of PA

    Yeah I love it,(but then again I have had it for less than a week) And yeah I use it off road, I bought it to be used off road mainly, because sometimes I crave the nimble feel of a cx bike on the trails. (already have a dedicated road bike)

    It is Creekside. And this bike has seen miles and miles at Felasco. Great trails.

    BTW- you have PM. We must be neighbors as this shot was taken less than a mile from our condo...

    I was trying to get in a few miles before December's blizzard hit - I got caught, but had a blast. It's a Karate Monkey, Salsa fork, Rampages tubeless and aired down.

    Sweet ride!

    How are those bars treating you? I'm thinking about a build along those lines. Can you ride on the hoods comfortably, or you in the drops all the time?

    Thanks!

    I've had FS XC racers, 29er hardtails with front suspension, and this bike. This one by far is the most fun to ride!

    I went with the 445. I bought the frame and stock fork used and later found the fork had a small dent in it. The Exotic 445 was the closest to the original fork size. Steering is super fast.

    I'll play along. This is my custom True Fabrication Bicycles 29er SS.


    The first two pictures show the diversity of the powder coating. It's an amazing bike.

    Nothing special

    A pic from this mornings 1.5 hour voyage along the snomo trail. Just a run of the mill Fisher Rig with a Bontrager carbon fork (pardon the photo quality, I only had my camera phone with me). This bike is soon to be retired however as I recently bought a Fargo frame. . . which leaves me in a predicament as I am still going to want a SS bike. I was never a good cyclist until I bought a SS, rigid, 29er. It is as though the bike taught me how to ride for the first time. You can't have more fun anywhere than you can on bikes like the ones in this thread.

    Thanks!

    Thanks!

    With the stem on in the picture I pretty much had to ride the hoods to be comfortable. Which was OK until it got steep and/or rocky. So I replaced that stem with a Ritchey 90mm 30 degree ride on. This made the drops the primary position, but the hoods are still comfortable.

    I have switched it back to a riser bar for now, just because the bike is seeing more mountain biking and less commuting/road. But I am keeping the drops and riser stem as I really like the feel and this may be my "around town" bike when we move to AZ in a couple months.

    For some special reason, our rigid bikes surpass all other technologies in providing fun ! It's simple, it's the rider and the trail.
    I, like you did, went through all the suspended and 26er bikes before settling on my rigid 29er.

    Curtlo nearly finished

    I love this thread, unbelievable activity and variety in what is a in itself a niche within a niche. So here's the replacement for my Singular posted way back, a Curtlo Mountaineer 29er built up Singlespeed, a custom frame that I bought used. The defining features are the curved seat stays and compact seat and head tubes compared to the top tube length. Size M-L if you wish and the steering is really quick with the 45mm rake Salsa forks.



    The reason for taking pictures was the new wheels: Flow rims on Royce hubs from the UK.
    High flanges, polished finish, titanium axles, a silent freehub and smoooth bearings, what's not to love?


    The SIngular was fiitted with a EBB, cleaner looking, but this works OK on the trail too.


    Next I'll be fitting some 2.4 tires and I may not be eligible for the "rigid" thread . Here's a last side-on shot.


    Enjoy!!

    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.
