    Just placed an order for a medium black.

    Question:

    Does anyone know if there will be any issues running a MRP 1x guide and a gxp bb? The manual says to use no spacers, so not sure how this will work.

    Coke - I know this sounds crazy and contradicts everything I've read about the GXP stuff, but running GXP with a 2.5mm spacer (or any other BB mounted gadget) seems to work fine. When you get your frame install the crank and see if it works with a washer. If so, you're good to go. I must have a weird set of cranks.

    I just ordered one.

    For about the past month, I've only been using my middle ring to see how 1x9 would work for me. It was fine for everything but a couple hills. I'm thinking with 12-36, I can handle just about anything.

    It is possible you may get it to work, but if it doesn't immediately break the non-drive side bearing it'll wear out prematurely...speaking from my own personal experiences.

    This thing will be a godsend to all the Truvativ users! Due to the odd seattube angle, the seattube mount type won't work and the Truvativ BB cups are a no go with BB style guides The only option out there that will work, that I'm aware of, is the Paul's chainguide but it's too pricey and doesn't fit the personality of the bike.

    Are there pics on the web anywhere of the MRP D-mount guide?

    Technically it wont work, you need a shimano/raceface BB/Crank to run the MRP. If you want to get creative, use a BB facing tool to remove 2.5mm of BB shell on the drive side. That should allow you to use the MRP with the GXP BB. Before you go cutting your frame I would take a couple measurements to ensure there are no other issues with the MRP fitting.

    Thanks for the help.

    I went ahead and ordered the mrp 1x. I had a big list of other things I needed to order and decided to give it a try. I'm thinking that if it doesn't work, I'll try filing it down some.

    I have a noob question about a fork, I found a deal on a 2010 Fox 32 F29 RLC but it has a 53mm Crown offset (Fisher G2) What exactly does that mean and would it work on my YS ? Thanks

    It means the crown protrudes a few mm further forward than a "normal" fork. A typical fork has around 46mm of offset. It would make your wheelbase slightly longer and theoretically slow down your handling. It will work fine on your bike but I wouldn't call it ideal.

    Cool thanks for the explanation and i think i will pass it also was 9mm qr and i found a RockShox RLT Ti with 20mm t/a almost new that i think i will buy instead for the same price.

    Actually, increasing the fork offset will speed up the handling, not slow it down.

    Or...it might not be noticeable at all.
    I have tried the regular F29 and a G2 F29 on several bikes......it's a little....and I mean VERY little different.You will notice a bigger difference in a change in air pressure/sag than the off set.

    Did you mount that tubeless? How'd it mount up??? Easy-peasy?

    Im ashamed to say I stuck a tube in there for now. Too cold out in the garage to mess with sealant and too messy to bring it in the house. The Purgatory is "tubeless ready" and was a ***** to stretch over the rim so I'm guessing it will work fine tubeless when I'm ready to go there.

    Buddhak - here's what the flush mount (XXc II Flush) looks like. I had a b**** of a time getting the cups to go in straight with my home-made headset press. No issues with clearance and I like the way the bike handles thus far. I've only gone around my block, but so far I'm in love with the handling. Hope to get a ride in when the weather makes up its mind (dry up or freeze up - this mud is driving me nuts!)

    If you wanna give it a try the control casing tires should air up with a floor pump and hold pressure without sealant. Push down on the tire in the area of the valve stem during the first few pumps.

    Yes. The more travel you run, 120mm range for this bike, the more of a necessity it becomes

    Ride #3

    Nice long singletrack climb up to a skills park today, where I hit some jump lines and wood features. Still some loaner parts from my 26" hardtail... XO brakes and a reverb on the way eventually. Fork was locked down for most of these photos.

    30t/104bcd non-ramped SS/1x ring by Andersen Machine Works. Works great, cool design. You have to bevel the tabs on the crank spider slightly inwards to clear the chain.

    Super fun bike to ride.
    Compared to my 26" AM hardtail, it's like going from a Lotus Elise to Corvette
    Both feel great in different ways.
    The Yelli is definitely much easier on long rides and climbs better, just generally more efficient. Surprisingly, log rides and skinnies are also easier on the big wheels. So far, doesn't feel as flickable as the 26'er on jump lines or on tight switchbacks, but definitely very capable. Corners great at speed too. I notice some adjustment in cornering technique is helping, I am over the front more, steering less and leaning more.
    1x9 with the 30/36 climbing gear feels like it will be perfect for summer epic rides here. The stiff back end with the thru-axle, wide bars and light weight feel great for climbing out of the saddle.

    I likey!

    30t/104bcd non-ramped SS/1x ring by Andersen Machine Works. Works great, cool design. You have to bevel the tabs on the crank spider slightly inwards to clear the chain.
    WTF?!

    No mention of the non-ramped version on the website!....so I ordered the ramped version.

    Oil well (oh well ) I guess I'll just have to make do.

    PS - Nice lookin' bike you got yourself there. Looks moist down there too.

    Very nice! So I'm guessing you ended up buying one? It sounded like you were borrowing it from your other post.

    Thank you, brother. I had a Minute in mind until I impulse-bid on a black Reba Team. Looks like I am going with a tapered fork. CFO was not amused. Man gotta do...

    By the way, FM, your YS is so dope I suffered a small seizure looking at the pics. Well done. Now that funds are depleted, my unit will beat up my Karate Monkey and steal all of its components. Right down to the 14 year old compact Deore LX cranks.

    E-mail Russell and tell him what you want. I asked specifically for a SS version and it's awesome because it's spaced slightly inboard (better chain clearance from cranks).
