    Yes, a number of riders out there using front derailleurs. You can use a short length of plastic sleeve (or even better gore lined cables) to protect the bb shell from the cable. I could have put the stop further around but then it would just be a magnet for gunk being forced straight down the housing.

    Hey Fixie Dave! That's pretty trick, what with the Woodchipper sticking up in the air. You could spot that Singular a mile away versus all the flat bar bikes laying in that line up.

    Mine has been seeing lots of gravel road duty of late, recon duty for the next Trans Iowa event. Great bike! This thing has a lot of cush compared to a Fargo and handles really well.

    Love my Gryphon

    I am curious where the swift and Gryphon headbadges came from? I have seem some bikes with them, but mine didn't come with one. Is that a special order item? Where can score one?

    Right now my Gryphon is built up with a Salsa 17 deg flat bar. I have been trying to dial the fit with the Woodchippers, but can't seem to get the cockpit short enough. Med frame with 90mm 15 deg stem and it still feels too stretched out. I may have to try the 60mm 10 deg stem I have, but I am afraid the steering would be too twitchy! Only one way to find out I guess.

    Overall, the Singulars are great bikes, well thought out, nice features, and great riding! Nice work Sam, and keep it up! Props to Marty for carrying them in the states!

    IIRC the headbadges are an option. Not sure how much more, but $65 comes to mind.

    I'm getting anxious to post photos of my Singular...I just need to find some time to go over and visit ~martini~ on the West Coast (of Wisconsin) and pick up my frame and fork. I'm buying the Gryphon that's second from the right in martini's photo above. Mine will look a little bit different though...2x9 with a mix of Campy and Shimano stuff. Pics to follow.

    All Singulars come with a solid pewter headbadge as standard. I was selling silver ones separately for a while but very few people bought them as the pewter ones look virtually identical from any more than a foot away. If for some reason you missed out (there was a period when Marty had frames but I hadn't got headbadges to him) just drop me a line with your address and I'll get one over to you.

    Thanks for all the nice comments on the bikes and keep the pics coming!

    Shoot me an email with your address and I"ll get one out to you. I"ve got three left here in the shop!, and Sam's right, they do come with the frame, but the Gryphons and the badges arrived in different weeks.

    Swift in travel mode

    Very good thread!

    Question : Does anyone has any problems with noise coming out of their EBB area or is it just my ears that are super sensitive to creaking noises? If so, how did you get rid of the noise?

    Ok, I'll give that a go.
    By the way, hope to cross you on the divide in june! If all goes as intended, I'm going to race (or make that ride) N-S. Got 'permission' from the girlfriend to go for it.

    You're taking the Singular?

    Ya know...a thought is to have Sam/Nevi do the same for me! Ti Gryphon, but keep the half link ebb - I've just never had an issue with them before. Why change what works for me? Funds will have to appear for this project though. maybe next year.

    I was just trying to decide if a Peregrine would work on the TD over the Fargo I'd been contemplating...

    I want something dirt capable that I can road tour on too.

    2.1 tire min is a reconmendo from this cat for divide riding weather touring or TT'ing... peregirne is sure a sweet looking rig and marty has a few med blems as well...might be a wee to bent over depending on how the geo fits yah. I imagine a nano would fit and its just about as perfect of a divide tire as you can find

    such lovely bikes Sam!

    Yeah, the tyre clearance is what has me concerned with the mud which is generally out there along the route in places. I appreciate the input from someone who's tried and is trying again.

    I'm aware the most common steed is a HT MTB though.

    FWIW, I can vouch for the Pegasus as a seriously fast and comfortable long distance bike. Just waiting for the custom frame bag now...

    nano's fit really quite well on the Peregrine. And it would indeed make a great TD bike, if you're willing to deal with a more road like position for the duration.

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/48107563@N00/5061843799/" title="ylrvr-9 by unclefuzzy_ss, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4147/5061843799_967ed86bed_o.jpg" width="900" height="602" alt="ylrvr-9" /></a>

    Toe over lap does become an issue on small's with such a big tire, but only on singletrack type stuff. I ride mine on single track and toe overlap hasn't been an issue yet [large size]. That being said it IS more of a gravel/dirt road bike than mtb.

    I love that lefty Pegasus pedalhead, particularly as I know you want to use it the same way as I'm looking to build for. I'd love a Peregrine, but the tyre clearance just isn't there for running 2.1 and getting a slightly out of true wheel a couple of hundred miles from a LBS.

    Like any metal on metal contact, creaks can happen. The interface between the ebb insert and the shell can get dry and dirty, which causes creaks. It's very simple to remove a crankarm, back the set screws off, and slide the whole assembly out. Clean it, grease everything (a good sticky marine type grease as Dave said is ideal), put it back together torque the set screws to 5-6Nm. That's not very tight, overtightening the set screws can deform the shell and will cause creaks by concentrating the stress more directly in a specific area as well as displacing grease more quickly.

    Then again, it could just be your name ;-)

    I just got back from a trip to see my folks in Western PA. Rode my dad's medium Lynskey Pro29 while I was there. Obviously, there are significant differences between the Lynskey and my Swift but i'm wondering about frame size. I'm 6'1, 175lbs. My Swift build is:

    Large Swift
    Fox F29 RLC OEM (52offset)
    Cane Creek S3+5 Headset
    Truvativ Stylo Race 100mm stem
    Salsa ProMoto bars

    I find that I have difficulty climbing on the Swift or making it up tighter switchbacks. No issues on the Lynskey. Maybe it's the slightly shorter chainstays on the Lynskey?

    I'm wondering if I should pony up and get a Medium Swift. Might also try ditching the S3+5 headset for a CaneCreek 110 that I have to pull back the front wheel a bit since the OEM FOX is already pushed out.

    What size are you other 6'1" folks riding?

    What size frame is that - I'm buying one but haven't had the chance to ride yet - the angles look RIGHT!

    Gryphon w/o drop bars

    Got the headbadge from Marty, looks awesome!

    Here's the latest iteration of my Gryphon. Tried so hard to love the woodchippers, but just couldn't get them set up to feel right. Always felt too stretched out. Next option may be a 60mm stem!

    Anyway threw on the On One Mary bar, and suprisingly, feels really good. I love this frame, and actually really like the way it rides in either configuration. Great rigid singlespeed 29er.

    Try the Mary's the other way up too, if you fancy a semi-drop. That's how I have mine on my Pegasus, and I've yet to find anything as comfortable.

    I bolted this stuff on a couple weeks ago. Dang... stuff is so crazy around the house, I haven't been out for a ride since mid-October. I've been staring at this for weeks, but can't get out and ride it.

    In the meantime, I sold a bunch of parts on craigslist, and bought an Access29er frame. I'm going to make that my gearie hardtail. I'll probably get one ride out of this thing before making the switch back to SS.

    Pardon my messy garage.

    Well...after trying the ultra lightweight route with an Air9 rigid build I realized just how nice a steel framed bike really was. The next thing you know I am headed down this path...

    Based on the limited single track rides I can say this bike really feels cushy and handles obstacles with no problems. Feels a lot like the Fargo did, but maybe a touch quicker in the corners. So far no crank strike issues as of yet either. Nicely built frame with a great finish as well. Not really feeling the SS love on this ride though, and need to find a 9spd barcon so I can get it it set-up for 1x9 to provide a little more versatility. Stem is not the final either but in the hunt using parts bin items to get me riding sooner than later.

    I also wanted to ask what size frame that is and what length stem do you have?
    I run the drops with a slight downward angle and spend my riding time deep into the flat section and into the hooks. The ends of my bars are always almost level with my saddle as I really like the feeling of the drop bars sitting high, which puts me into a command position when riding through technical sections. I know when its right when my hands fall naturally into that area at the lower part of the hook and front part of the flat drop. I really hate riding road (even gravel roads) so all of my drop bar bikes get a lot of trail time, and all have been set-up pretty much like this. I definitely feel this does provide a great deal of power and agility from this position, but again its important to note that I am not hunkered over into the drops, but instead navigating from a more upright position using the drops.

    These original Gary bars are really shallow in the drop like the midge bars I usually like to use. Lots more flare on the Gary and minimal top section. I do spend a little time on top with whats available, and interestingly I can actually use the brake hoods better on the Gary than I could the Midge. I guess the angle of the bars works well with my ergos or something and I can hook my thumbs over the hoods and rest my fingers on the outer edge of the hood and bars for rest, sprinting, and second climbing position. These pics may give you a better idea of the amount of angle of the bar ( sort of matches the drop of the top tube) and the amount of flare of the original Gary bars which is really close to a moustache bar in my opinion.




    Frame is a medium and the stem is a Race Face Evolve 110mm reach with 6 degrees of rise. I have considered trying the Mary bar option as 1cogfrog has had luck with, but am unsure as I have tried the Groovy Luv Handles in the past and really felt totally awkward and out of control through the technical sections. I see that pic of basonjillet flying his swift with Mary-like bars and I think hmm...maybe worth a try?

    I guess Sam approved the build so here she is:




    Love it ! Next ride will be singlespeed and hope to find some cheap BB7s to run it with a dropbar.

    Mid 50 degree temps today so I got the Gryphon out for a run into the State Park down the road from me. Unfortunately no single track, but a nice crystal clear creek crossing, a few killer hills, and a firing range at the back where you can dodge live rounds!

    so far so good.... have the stem much lower then with the woodchipper, not quite as much sweep back as the chipper

    it being steel, seems to take a bit of the edge off and being able to use ergons and an hydro brake are nice!

    Those open bars look like they are pretty wide too. Thats the only thing about running the Mary's upside down, they are definitely on the narrow side otherwise they feel pretty good. On top of the benefit of being able to run hydro brakes, I have to say that one major motivator for me was being able to use the 970 XTR trigger shifter for a 1x9 set-up again. I don't have any major issues with bar end shifters, but the 970's work a lot better for me personally.

    Never mind the crappy cell shot, but here's a new Medium Swift I've built up as a demo.
    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/48107563@N00/5254796241/" title="M Swift demo by unclefuzzy_ss, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5042/5254796241_f7b8d22e8e_o.jpg" width="720" height="480" alt="M Swift demo" /></a>
    The new mediums have a shorter fork[470 ac] and hipped chain stays. Other wise, the same geo numbers.
    Just a regular guy.
