    2 Rigid SSs

    Only one is a 29er though. My riding buddy that day was 5 and a little short for the big wheels.

    Sorry about that. I was a little bit drunk.

    Where are we going and why am I in this handbasket?

    There's something about those long grueling climbs that gets my front end all stiff... And I'm not talking about lockout...

    Thanks! I bought it used like that last week. I absolutely love it. Put in some good mileage this weekend.

    My current rigid/SS/29ers:

    Blackbuck:


    Singular Gryphon:



    Two rigid/SS/29ers is perhaps one too many. I'm not in love with either one of these, so I need to do some more back to back comparo riding, and may the best bike win! (though actually the winner may be my Stumpjumper FSR--I've really been enjoying my full sus/geared/26er latetly!)

    I predict you are not going to like that straight thin fork on the Gryphon very much. Whichever one you keep, put a Niner carbon fork on it and you will like it even more. I have a 2nd gen Sir with the Niner fork and it is way better. Not so much at soaking up bumps which is what everyone thinks, but the steel forks flex a lot under hard braking and the Niner flexes much less. Also, the steering precision is better. You should switch the forks and wheels between the bikes to see if any difference you feel is the fork, wheels or the bike.

    I notice it looks like you have a dingle speed setup. My Sir is set up Dingle Speed also. 34-18 and 32-20

    Your prediction is wrong, so far. The fork on the Gryphon is quite nice.

    I've never ridden either bike, seat boy, but I always had a soft spot for the Blackbucks.

    I bought my first fully rigid singlespeed 29er summer of 2011 and will probably never go back.

    Here's my totally stock Redline Flight SS Monocog 29er:

    yeah - nice bike. I think I can work it out, but does anyone have a link to how to set up a dingle speed properly...?

    my buddy just said to try to keep each cog within 2 teeth of each other so that the chain length would be relatively the same. for instance, I'm running 32x18 as my low gear, and 34x16 as my high gear. so the cogs (both fronts & both rears) are within 2 teeth of each other.

    If you go 2 teeth on the front then you go 2 teeth on the back and 2 is recommended in my case because 3 on each end would be a huge difference. 2 is about 10-12 gear inches generally. In some cases you might want to do 1 tooth each such as when both gears are going to be used "off road" The way to set the chain tension is off the big front small rear. Due to the way chain wrap works, that will always be the "tightest" pair. Also, it is better to get real SS rings especially for the small front big back pair since the chain will run a little loose on that combo. Before I switched to SS rings I had to constantly tighten the chain to as tight as I could go on the Big front Small rear combo in order to not have it occasionally jump when on the other set on long hills. I run 32x20 and 34x18 all with SS cogs/rings. I can run the tall gearing on the easier trails around here and on the street and switch to the lower gearing for the really steep places.

    I agree, best bang for the buck.

    How are you liking that White carbon fork...? I am looking at one for my 2011 Monocog Flight SS 29er.

    I love my white brothers fork! I have been through two other frames since I had it on that monocog.. The frames keep breaking but the fork is still going strong..
