    Like the idea behind rear drop-out. What increments do the notches work on?

    How stiff is that dangling bottom bracket? Also like the short chain-chainstays..

    there are no notches in the dropout it rotates around the single rear bolt and uses the front two to clamp it gives 20mm of adjustment 417 to 437 chainstay length

    the dropout is very stiff , but a little wide i overbuilt the first prototype to ensure i got a ridable bike first time the bike is good it's not as stiff as my ragley td-1 it gives a fast nimble ride and climbs well

    i am working on version 2 at the moment

    No problem at this time. Belt tension is not really strong and very easy to check with the tension gauge. Otherwise, Rohloff hub add additional drag but not the belt (I tried before with a chain)

    Haven't ridden her on a trail in almost a year. Spent a few hours last night getting her good to go again. New Stans in the tires, clean the chain, air in the fork, etc. Thinking of doing a local XC race on Sunday.

    Ordered my new Carver 29er Ti frame at the end of March and got a call yesterday saying it was in New York at customs. Not sure how long it may be there but getting excited. Going with x9 3x9 drivetrain and Arch white rims, Hope pro 2 red hubs with black spokes, carbon seat post and handlebars. It maybe not perfect but it'll be mine, (can't use 2x10 for the riding I do).

    As an owner of Ti frames and someone who is regularly kidded about the perfect cleanliness of my bikes... I should point out to those of you that don't already know it, Pledge furniture polish makes the Ti frames GLOW!
    Keep the rotors/pads clear of the goop though.

    my new ti El Mariachi


    well here is my new El Mariachi. I had a Niner Air9 that cracked so my lbs hooked me up with the El Mariachi frame. This pic is before I swapped out the pewter seatpost clamp for the red one I had and also before I adjusted my cockpit a bit. Still need to fine tune the bars/grip probably going to a Pro Moto carbon flat bar and some Ergon GX1's. after the first ride. This is such a nice frame. I am very happy with my purchase.

    9 months later and the etching still looks great, despite a few mishaps with transport and gravity...

    Nice looking Ti El Mar. Not to derail this thread but, how would compare those two? I'd be interested to know how the fit and handling compare between the Air9 and El Mar. Did you swap the same components over?

    Yeah we swapped over all the components other than the front derailleur and the seat post. fit wise they are very similar with the El Mariachi having a 5mm shorter effective top tube. The geometry is really similar as well with the difference being that the Salsa has slightly longer chain stays but a slightly shorter wheel base. Oh, by the way I have a 2010 El Mariachi the 2011's have slightly different geometry.

    I did my initial ride last night around 14ish miles and it felt really good. Handling wise it feels pretty similar to the Air9 but I think it might be a litter better in tight switch backs. Could just be my perception but it felt like it was. I am planning on doing a longer ride at one of my favorite trails here (Santos in Ocala, FL) on Saturday. I will have a much better feel for the handling after that.

    The biggest difference is in the ride quality. There are a few different things going on with that- ti frame plus 27.2 seat post vs Scandium frame and 31.6 seat post. This frame rides so smooth it is amazing. This is my first ti frame but I have ridden several carbon bikes when I was trying to decide what my next bike was going to be i.e. Air9c, S-Works Stumpjumper, S-works Epic, Superfly 100, Superfly and I have to say I am really glad I got the ti frame. Carbon is nice but the titanium is phenomenal. It is stiff but still compliant enough that rooty sections of trail that would cause the Air9 to buck are much smoother and that allows me to carry more speed through them.

    I loved my Air9, it was an awesome frame but this frame seems to handle just as well-if not better and the difference in ride quality is startling. If you are thinking about a ti frame I say do it. You won't regret it. And if it matters I am 6' 185lbs base class racer (this will be my first full season racing). Hope that answers your questions.

    Was just sitting in my lazy chair with the laptop and contemplating a ride in the hills behind my house... rain clouds and the laziness of the day pushing me towards the wrong choice. Your video has inspired me in the right direction.
    Thanks!!

    Great frame, old picture. Currently has flat bars (with shorter brake cable!) and about to have a set of Niner carbon forks fitted.

    This is my wonderful Moto! I had this bike in March 2010, and after the first ride i burned my old scalpel 26ers. It was a "hard job" to ship the frame here in France and a "dangerous" game because i didn't test the bike and i had never ride a 29ers before. But no regrets, it's the best bike i never had.

    How does it ride? I don't have much to compare it to since I come from a 26'er carbon full suspension geared background. All I can say is I'm absolutely loving the Ti 29'er hardtail SS thing. I chose this bike specifically for 24hr Solos, I wanted a change from my normal 24hr Solo rigs and this is a radical departure but so far so good. But the proof is in the pudding as they say and the first 24hr taste test is next weekend in Spokane. I've already got several multi-hour rides in this configuration and between the 29'er volume and Ti absorption it seems to have been a good choice, of course I'll know more by next Sunday afternoon. ;-)

    Even though the Ti frame is flexy, it's flexy in a good way once you get used to it. After a couple of weeks of pushing the bike to it's limits and learning what it's capable of it was a simple matter of adjusting my style a bit to cooperate more closely with the bike. My biggest concerns with a Ti 29'er seem to have been alleviated. It produces good results across a wide range of demands; from good trail absorption to aggressive line choice handling.

    I shot this video a few days ago on a trail I'm not familiar with (only ridden it once a couple of nights prior during a night ride), unfortunately the video doesn't effectively demonstrate how many tight moves and sharp angles you've got to pull at speed in order to one-time this little route but I can assure you the bike is very capable of handling aggressive trail riding and is probably more competent than the rider. I've had the bike on harder trails, bigger climbs and descents and gnarlier tech and it's been very capable, this video is just good proof that Ti-flex isn't a limiter. Maybe steel/aluminum would be great on this trail as well, I'll gladly do long-term reviews on donated frames. ;-)

    Those chest mounted cameras are too realistic. I was steering with you the whole way, even blew snot rockets the same time you did (but on my computer).

    Ridgeline with a splash of Rouge

    2011 Lynskey Ridgeline 29SL. Rides great and feels ever so comfortable, even after marathon races, thanks to the big bag tyres and the compliance in the rear end through the Ti frame and seatpost. The Lynskey geometry works great.

    Image below taken in the Royal National Park in Sydney, Australia.
