    Got a smoking deal on some new generation Crank Brothers Iodine 29r wheels so now the goblin is running around with some nice bling. The wheels made a big improvement to a already playful bike with most of the wheel weight closer to the hub they spin up super fast and are very stiff. Didn't get any trail side picks on her first ride with new wheels I was having to much fun to stop for pics.

    Love the FSA bits TXTony put on and hope to snag some like it when the bike budget recovers some.

    I continue to be very impressed with he goblin she is now sub 27lb on a 22 inch frame and still feeling solid.

    Those wheels look awesome on there~! It's amazing what a light, stiff high end wheelset does for these bikes in terms of ride quality and fun factor. There's definitely a reason why when people ask "shat should I upgrade first on my bike" the answer is almost always "wheels".

    I'm a fixed track rider looking to get into a 29er and this bike seems like a sound entry level option; however the gearing seems to be a bit of an overkill for my needs. I'd have no issues wrenching on the bike itself but I'm very unfamiliar with mountain bikes in general and the components to make something like this work properly without some guidance.

    Would you mind linking to me to the parts you purchased for the conversion? (Realize you referenced them but I'm unsure of the jargin - ya, newbie) Appreciate the help. Thanks!

    It's working great. Not a single jump in well over 200 miles. I also love that I can wear my loose snow pants with the bashguard in place and not catch them on the chainring.

    I'm using the Ngear jumptop. Amazon sells it. The BBG Bashguard: Home

    Thanks for the response and good to hear it's working out for you. A few minor, quick things:

    Do I need new chain ring bolts in order to fasten the Bashguard?
    In order to get the granny gear off, do I need to pull the crank?

    Sorry for the questions but hard to plan for sight-unseen. Thanks again.

    If you are planning a 1x9 conversion as I have done, then yes, you will need new chain ring bolts. Your local bike shop will have what you need.

    No, you will not need to pull off the crank.

    One disclaimer: Running 1x9 requires some pretty strong legs because you don't have that granny ring to fall back to. I'd suggest trying it out stock before messing around with the drivetrain.

    You will need to pull the crank to get the granny gear out. It won't fit over the crank. And for sure - try the new gear first. I put a 32 on my Hobgoblin thinking was going all 1x10 and stuff (kept the granny on just in case), but
    its harder than I thought it would be. Not impossible, but for me its like riding a single speed, and littler harder on my old knees.

    As it sits now:



    Hobgoblin
    Sunline V1 AM stem
    Deity D30 bars, uncut
    Bolt on grips, generic
    Deity Compound Pedals
    Kenda Nevegal
    Marzocchi 44 Mirco Ti fork.
    Chrome/polished Uno seatpost
    Red QR seat post clamp.
    32t large ring in hopes of going 1x10

    Planned additions; Bionicon chainguide (attaches to chain stay), possibly a bashguard sandwich thing IF I take the 1x10 plunge. Might go back the Geax AKA's, or something very similar if I can find one in a 2.3. I love the Nevegals, but the rolling resistance is almost prohibitive on a lot the trails here.

    If I find my way to some extra $$, then a pair of Loaded wheels in red ano.

    Jerry is correct. I did have to pull off the crank to get the granny gear off. Forgot about that. All it requires is an allen wrench, though. Obviously I didn't have a problem with it since I already forgot about it. ha!

    I elected to go with the setup I have instead of the bashwich because 1) I don't think the bashwich will fit on the Guardian. It was going to be close. 2) I've heard they can get caked with mud and tough to clean. I like to ride in the mud, so that didn't seem like a good fit for me.

    Just ordered Stans crest ZTR rims, Maxxis Ikons, Niner carbon forks, Niner seat post and stem. I'm shooting for sub 25 lbs on my (New) Goblin. I'll keep you posted when everything gets installed.

    I have the Goblin (black) down to 26.8 lbs now. Mods are Niner stem, bars, and post; Stans ZTR Crest - front wheel only with Schwalbe Racing Ralph 2.35 (front only).

    I'm waiting on the Maxxis Ikon 2.2 to come in for the rear before I mount the other Crest wheel. 26lbs should be the result.

    I have a Niner Carbon Fork that will hopefully get me in the 23 range - hopefully.

    Pics - sure. I can get some tonight if you'd like.

    Cassette switch - it was a garage sale item at a bike store I go to - $20. Never use that top 36T gear anyway and I thought maybe I might like the smaller gear better.

    My dirty orange HobGoblin is on the right in this photo. Trying out a new set of Vredestein Black Panther tires. The crunchy frozen oatmeal trail conditions weren't the best test this weekend. Hopefully things fully thaw and dry soon!

    Thanks!

    Since we only sell the orange color in frame only, technically none of it is "stock" .

    But the heart of the build is sorta similar to a stock blue HG as it has X7 2x10 on it.

    Upgrades: It's got the FSA SLK bars/stem/post like on the XO level HG. Cole 29er Light wheelset, Selle Italia Flite gel saddle, Lizard Skins lockon grips.

    Love this bike! And that's coming from a diehard hardtail guy!

    Morning ride in Michigan

    Thought I would share how I start my day - except when it snows.

    This is in the Modified Airborne section because I wanted to let anyone who cares, that the Maxxis Ikons are great on snowy trails.Post Your Modified Airborne Bikes-img_20130308_075135.jpg
