    TwoNin9r's Hammerhead Thumper Build Thread

    Hello all. I hope you all enjoy this build thread. This build came about as i read the "do we really need all that ravel" thread. It got me thinking that a longish travel 29er would be a perfect sled for my local trails. so i started stringing thoughts together, some coherent, some ridiculous. Here Goes:

    The frame is on the way. as it shipped today, actual pictures of the frame will follow. The fork will be in in about 2 weeks.

    But it's time to get to work!

    as i've sourced parts for this build from my existing bikes, here are some photos of the donor bikes. (note: i have mismatched wheelsets on the F29 and Inbred ebcause i hadn't laced the Arch hoops to the lefty hub in front yet before deciding to go for this build.)

    Donor Bikes:
    '12 Scott Spark Pro 29er. this is where the components will come from primarily, save a couple things here and there, and the wheelset, the frame and fork will be for sale.

    The Inbred SS 29er. the whole bike is going for sale (consolidating)

    Stand by!

    Got started with the build. here are a couple shots

    Here's my driveway set up as my workstation, with my build partner... of course

    DSC_2065 by TwoNin9r, on Flickr

    the frame, in XL, weighs in at just over 7.4 lbs with the Maxle

    DSC_2073 by TwoNin9r, on Flickr

    Rear wheel installed

    DSC_2079 by TwoNin9r, on Flickr

    Rear Der., cassette, and wheel

    DSC_2081 by TwoNin9r, on Flickr

    Closeup

    DSC_2082 by TwoNin9r, on Flickr

    This stuff is AMAZING!

    DSC_2078 by TwoNin9r, on Flickr

    As it stands, this was all i could get done. I'm waiting on the Fork to come in from Scott at Switchback, i'm waiting for my Front Der., cranks, and tires, to come in from the bike shop, waiting for the Handlebar to come in from amazon, and i'm waiting on my seatpost to come in from pricepoint. Lots of waiting to be done, but all in all, i should be able t get her on the trails this week. i want to figure out a way i can carry my DSLR and my hydration pack in the same backpack, but i see the consequences of any type of malfunction being catastrophic, pics and ride report will definitely come soon, though. in the meantime, feel free to comment.

    Some random pictures from ride number one:

    disclaimer, i put an old 175mm XT crank i have on for the ride, along with a random parts bin saddle, seat post, and handlebar. the finished bike will have black 180mm xt cranks, truvativ boobar handlebar, easton haven carbon seatpost, and chromag trailmaster saddle... use your imaginations until the next update

    getting ready to ride

    DSC_2090 by TwoNin9r, on Flickr

    My top secret way to prevent chain slap, since i haven't gotten a chain-stay protector yet... i'll never tell what it is... and there's definitely no evidence in the photo...

    DSC_2086 by TwoNin9r, on Flickr

    trailhead, ready to roll!

    DSC_2096 by TwoNin9r, on Flickr

    No shame in repping this hammerhead!

    DSC_2102 by TwoNin9r, on Flickr

    and after the ride... back up on the wall preparing for the final build parts to come in.

    DSC_2108 by TwoNin9r, on Flickr

    until next weekend...

    Thought you might like this:

    From the first weekend of field-testing the Prototypes in Deer Valley, UT

    After 3-days of chairlift runs a friend of mine bet me $20 "it doesn't climb good"
    We were waiting for the next lift ride and standing at the top of the stairs down to the locker rooms.

    The $20 came down to him betting me I couldn’t climb stairs on it…..if you haven't climbed stairs on a bike before....it's an awesome way to see how well a bike will climb in technical situations!

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/gy1ls8nf8d...Stairclimb.mov

    I took the $20 in product from here Wasatch Brew Pub & Brewery - Park City, Utah

    I'm very strongly considering it. I never even would have thought of one until I started reading this forum, but I don't know if, with the style of our trails, I can justify the cash for a dropper. South Florida is weird. If I could find a good used one for an absolute bargain I would try it out.

    Is that a custom color on the 130X? How was it priced compared to the $750 Thumper?

    If I'm not mistaken, Scott has a couple of each still for sale, and I'm sure he'll correct me if I'm wrong, but the going rate for thumper ND 130x is the same.

    There was a brief period that custom colors were possible but it was also when they were full priced. At $750 those babies are a steal!

    The deal to get is the frame/fork combo! I got to ride a Pike this last week and I strongly feel that RockShox has dropped a bomb on Fox. Fox has irked lots of people recently with the CTD forks and the Pike is awesome straight out of the box.

    Mine came with RS revelation xx and it's butter. Really like the feel. Still need to get it dialed in but great things are seeming possible with this bike. No regrets whatsoever on this purchase

    I'm certainly no expert on MTB trails in FL but having visited the sunshine state many times I'm having difficulty understanding the need for a long travel full suspension bike let alone a dropper post. Given the lack of elevation change combined with mostly sandy trails why are you looking for so much travel? Is it that the trails are really rooty? Just curious.

    The park I ride primarily is Markham park. Getting into trails like gun range and crime scene were really really sketchy on my f29. There's also a free ride section in the back with some decent jumps I like to jot every once in a while. A no-no on my carbon 90mm ht

    I was thinking of the same park as being a great place to ride this frame. Have you ridden it at Markham yet?

    I can also see it being a sweet ride at Oleta, Virginia Key and maybe Amelia. Great for Alafia, Boyette, Santos to name some in central Florida.

    Cusco, just curious, what trails have you ridden in Florida?

    Haha just Oleta. I wanted to torture it on dry rooty rocky Ness. Honestly. Great choice in everything BUT the rear tire. I think it'll be much better at Markham. I've never been to vk, Markham will be this weekend. Just got the truvativ boobar 780mm 30 rise and the 180 xt cranks come in tomorrow. All I'm waiting on its the saddle but worst case I will ride with the Silverado this weekend

    Good to see others making great builds from these Thumper frames. The Ano gray frame and welds look the goods in person and Thumper logo looks better than new Switchback logo for me. My build came in at 28# with Flow/Hopes, Revelation RCT at 130 w// 20mm axle, WTB Bronson 2.2, SLX brakes,etc. I bought from another distributor who threw in headset, collar, bb, and adapter with free shipping as well. Hopefully Scott will honor warranty should I ever have an issue. I've ridden a few times here in SoCal and impressions are that the bike is super stiff and stable which I attribute to beefy thru axles and stout tubing shape along with "not too short/not too long" 17.5" chain stays. My old DW link Pivot climbed better, but the Horst link is much smoother descending thru the rough. I find that the stability of this bike allows you to claw up the technical climbs slowly, but surely as compared to a 70 degreeHTA frame that you can motor up climbs a bit more nimbly and twitchy. Like I said before, the Thumper is a beast on the descents - make sure you have good stoppers because it'll blast through the rocks and roots as only a longer travel 29er can. Also, if you really like to flow the corners, pump the berms, etc. a dropper post is needed to get low as you will need to get the saddle in a tall position to climb this bike. Note that 5" dropper may not work on this frame as the seat tube is long as compared with the latest "enduro" style frames that don't employ the seat tube gusset. I have a 3" GD dropper and haven't had issues. Good job on the frame design Scott, and cheers to all those getting a sweet deal on a frame that allows for a $2k complete build!

    Couldn't have said it better. I'm really curious how you hit 28 lbs with a dropper! Nine came in just over 28 with no dropper and xt/X.0/x9 carbon. What size frame is that?

    Thanks. Came across them in a thread on here and ordered them instantly without even knowing what I was going to put them on

    Twonin9r, 28# was as pictured with a 27.2 shimmed Al, 350mm straight post and kinda heavy WTB Pure V saddle. I haven't weighed the bike with my Gravity Dropper, 27.2 3" drop(which are much lighter than hydraulic models)but I imagine around 28.5# roughly as I have a Pretty light Wtb Silverado ass plank. Also, 1x10 loses the FD, cables, front shifter, and 1 or 2 chain rings. Ashima rotors, 120g 50mm custom stem, Al boobar are all pretty light pieces of Kit along with the tubeless race grade bronson tires. Spending just over $2k, I didn't go out of my way for a light build - it just kinda happened. Frame is the 21", so I'd call it XL. So happy that my Satori deal fell through as I ended up with something unique and I really enjoy the shopping/building process as an engineer by day, bike nerd by weekend.

    Sorry, 29r, I meant 29#, not 28. Just realized it, as weight isn't too important to me. My other ride is a 32# Inbred with Marz TST, wtb i19/shimano, etc.

    Haha I'm starting to realize that weight isn't that important as well. Really liking that fact

    I'm really enjoying my a Thumper. I've been off the bike for 5 months with a shoulder injury/ surgery so I'm taking it pretty easy but I hit a technical climb this weekend and had zero problem mostly because of the traction this bike provides. I cannot wait until I can start to really push it on the downs.

    I like the vans grips too.
