    My first real ride with the Peregrine.

    Lots of power lines and make your trail...

    Two flats in two hours. Still a great ride.

    I put the Reba back on. I also switched out the Large Ergon grips for small ones. Muuuuch bettah.

    I had a killer ride today. 19 miles of boringass China Camp, but had a good time.

    There was one hiker, tho... she insisted on walking right down the middle of the trail, intentionally blocking the whole trail. I said hello, quietly rode behind her at walking pace, after about 30 feet or so, I backpedaled a bit to make a bit of noise with my Hope Pro2 SS hub, called out again... nothing. She totally had a bug up her butt about cyclists. Finally, the trail slightly widened, it was safe to pass, I said 'passing left' and went around her. Total dagger eyes my way. Screw her. I told her that I hope the rest of her life goes better.

    There is something like 500 miles of singletrack in Marin, all is off limits to bikes except the 12 miles at China camp, 10 miles at Tamarancho, and maybe another 5 on Mt. Tam. If she hates sharing the trail with bikes, there are lots of other trails she can hike.

    <a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/4jViSaiWnnE_oOm5LHFQ0g?feat=embedwebsite"><img src="https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/_zZ7tZYTZu1o/TVi82KlJRfI/AAAAAAAAS7Y/cVQGJKLDre4/s800/IMG_2441.JPG" height="600" width="800" /></a>

    Oh, and I found a ever so slightly used Schwalbe Little Albert at ReCyclery today for $14. Looks like the previous owner rode it for one ride, and decided he didn't like it, and donated it. Looks like a good go-fast rear tire for Sea Otter. The Maxxis Igniter I have in back is kinda wanting to wash out in the turns.

    Well, my first ride on the Gryphon was great. 4 days and 550km of MTB trails, gravel roads and back country roads. It was unsupported, so had to take all our own gear (hence the backpack). Fantastic fun!

    Finally put my Gryphon together and went for a short tuning ride around the block. Stem and post are temporary, form my parts bin and cross, respectively but other than that it feels "done" - just waiting for some slightly warmer weather!

    very nice Gryphon!

    Like the looks esp. with the silver Salsa rims. How's the room with those 2.4 Conti's?

    There's plenty space both front and rear - more than I had with 2.2s in my old 26" HT

    premiere rode my swift yesterday, possibly the most fun I have had on a bike ever, using 2,4 ardents tubeless, really cushy and still fast rolling. Waiting for spring now..

    must the season for new rides - I hope " premier" had fun! I know I did

    FAST AND NIMBLE !

    I have another 29er, this one feels much more playful - may be it's the lighter build but it feels a much better trail weapon.
    Have some Rebas to transfer over but the fork did a great job - Will be transferring over some rampage 2.35 to the front first for a softer ride and see how it goes, and then maybe a nobby nice will be a permanent set up.

    Rides very much like my 26 Rock Mountain Blizzard - that is a big rap !

    Wow! I had to go back 6 pages to find this thread.

    Anyhoo...
    I put a Niner fork on my Swift.
    I really like what it has done to the handling. Makes it feel very "moto"



    I got a new bell too!

    i did see a swift frame hanging in bikevegas when i was there last time, and one of the guys in the new bikestore on fenton st has brought his out from the uk ...

    After finding a few limitations with the singlespeed setup, I'm trying 1x10 again (last time was on a XC race bike, so this is a little different). Using a Sram force STI in place of the S900 lever, and a short cage X9 rear mech. So far so good

    First race of 2011: King of Burlingame

    The race season kicked off to a grandly mediocre beginning, which is about what I was expecting, but it's a fun way to start things off.
    More importantly than doing good, I looked good!

    Okay, they aren't. I'll ring you tomorrow.

    Is Singular going to be represented at Sea Otter this year? Look forward to meeting your folks, if so.

    Shoot me an email with your address and I "ll leave one. J" I had three left here in the store, and the right of Sam, which come with the frame, but came taps and badges in different weeks.

    After a hard long run at Sea Otter Classic, 2011...

    <a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/8uEoC2QRFmenEA9Zj0BfYg?feat=embedwebsite"><img src="https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/_zZ7tZYTZu1o/Ta0gTntBEyI/AAAAAAAATbk/bh_5ShTslkQ/s800/IMG_0221.JPG" height="600" width="800" /></a>

    The bike was flawless.... well, except for some bleeding issues with my rear brake. After pumping it up just before the first descent, it was fine.

    Comfy as heck for the whole race... well, as comfy as lugging a singlespeed up 3600 feet of climbing can be.

    I run the same rims on my Gryphon, love the width you get. I have 2.4" MKs on though.

    O.K. Singular fans, I just purchased a new Gyphon frame and need some input/suggestions on the build. I am stuck on Thomson stem & post, Chris King headset and since I have a SS 29er and a 3 X 9 geared MCR, I am looking at putting this one together as a 1 X 9 or 10. Everything I have is rigid so not interested in front shock. My tentative plans are Shimano bar ends matched up to a rapid rise XT rear der. Handlebars - Salsa 46cm X 31.8 Woodchippers. Looking at the Cane Creek brake levers intended for V-brake applications. Wheels and rubber will be on the lighter and narrower side as I plan on using this bike for less rugged and some commutting to work. Any input on shifters - Sram grip shift? Or bars - On-One Midge? Combo drivetrain with rapid rise and bar ends? It will take some time with budget but will post pic when complete. Thanks.

    Thanks Paakku, pretty bike - are the brake levers on your bike the CC for V-brakes and do you get a good pull for the disc brakes? Someone told me that the road specific BB7s were only necessary on this frame if using STI brake/shifters. So, no plans on putting STI brake/shifters and looking at standard mtn. BB7s. Convinced me on the Salsa bars - I dig the width of the tops and shape of drops as opposed to other options.
    Thanks,
    JS

    The levers are Cane Creek Drop V levers and the brakes are Avid MTB BB7. The brakes work perfectly - who needs hydraulic.
    Only problem is to reach the bar end shifters during trail riding. Salsa Woodchipper is dreadfully wide, although I cut off about 3/4 inch.
