    Something like my next bike project. Bought a Cannondale Killer V900 (Mid Season 1995) for little money and want to get it "stripped". Frame like yours with no paint (or polished) and fork in black (or maybe carbon). Can´t await the arrival of the bike...

    Thank you, I'll have to reassemble it when it gets here so sort of like building it myself i guess. It was a blast getting to pick each option. I'm hoping the weight is decent, it should be. Have fun building your bike up. How many bikes do you have to have before it's called a disease? I'm up to three and my wife already thinks I'm nuts.

    Don´t know how many are nessesary...
    At the moment the Bad Boy is the only one, my further Zoulou Ijubane carbn roadbike was stolen a year ago. The killer V should come next week...

    But I built about 5 bikes within the last few years. With each bike you learn a little bit more aobut it. So the results are getting better from bike to bike. My first built was a Fuji crossbike, a complete disaster because I had no experiences with geometry. Started with the wrong frame size...

    Yeah, I'm hoping this one is the right size for me, I sort of guessed because my road bike is a 53.5cm seat tube and my bad boy is a Large which is 47.5cm I think, both have a stand over height of about 79cm more or less. This fixie frame is a 56cm seat tube size and I'm not exactly sure about the stand over height but I think it'll be close. being 5'11" with a 32inch inseam I am hoping I'll be OK. Would hate to have to buy a new frame and ship the old one back. I haven't really built my own bike so I'm learning but there's something so pure about bikes, I am definitely obsessed.

    I'm giving up on trying to find the proper replacement boot for my bad boy. The kit ordered from cannondale has the wrong sized bottom spring to secure the boot. When we called them they have no clue and say all their replacements are like that. So basically a zip tie will have to do. Oh well. No big deal I guess. Funny how a three year old bike can't get proper replacement parts from cannondale but then I guess I shouldn't be so obsessive compulsive about wanting to restore the boot to the original look with those neat spring fasteners.

    In any case, I just wanted to share the finished build of my fixie/free wheel project. If anyone is interested, here's a link to the forum. The "New" Post Your Singlespeed!

    Cheers.

    Sold my Bad Boy 5 in 2012 and have regretted it ever since, especially after revisiting this thread so just picked up a Bad Boy 29er to use as my ride to work, so far I've upgraded the seat, seat post, and pedals but will be swapping the complete drive train for xt as soon as funds allow.

    I have a 2008 Bad Boy Rohloff with the DL80 Fatty fork, I also have a Lefty headshok fork(multi-piece). Is it worth rebuilding my front wheel to the Lefty hub? I know the fatty fork is bulletproof and there have been lefty failures on the Bad Boy lineup. The Lefty is just Cool!

    anyone riding the 'bad boy commuter'? would love to see some pics if you are.

    trying to decide between it and the BB5 but not sure my funds can stretch to the latter. also have reservations over the lefty fork, as sweet as it may look.

    edit: whilst i'm here, anyone care to comment on the comfort of the bad boy frame geometry? from looks alone, it appears to be move 'aggressive' than some / most hybrid geometry. i have some lower back issues so your thoughts on this would be appreciated.


    cheers!

    I just got a 2014 BB1, nice bike I am more MTB but need somthing when the trails are bad and I thought it would reduce the wear on my MTB w/XX1 so there it is
    few Qs:
    -anyone weighed the wheels (C2) w/out tires

    -the FSA crank has got to be a beast anyone upgraded? and speaking of that I have a 32t on my Epic and this 42t seems to easy is that just the smooth tires that make the 42t seem so easy in comparison?

    -anyone used a Hope stem...I gotta put carbon bars on this BB my wrist didn't like the alu too much after 26 miles...


    thx

I got a aluminum cannondale stem from cannondaleexperts.com. They are expensive and on the heavy side. I thinking to get the same pedals you have on there the CB Candys. How do you like them?

    Love the candys seems like I have more platform but that may be just in my mind
    I had to get the stem on eBay in order to put carbon bar on
    But I am a firm believer in the dampening a carbon bar does

    Sorry about the problems you are facing. You are right, they are Kenda SmallBlock 8 (32mm). I haven't got a headshock, only fatty. That's why I had no problem using them at full PSI. I will add though, I only had 1mm clearance at the back and about 3mm clearance at the top of the fork. as you are probably aware, Cannondale recommends only 28mm tyres for my model.

    VERY CLOSE>>>

    I am also running Stan's Ravens at 700X35 on ZTR Crest 29 rims. Its tight and similar to your Kenda in clearance.

    Question:
    Who if anyone is running a 27er on their BBoy. I am considering getting my Stan's wheels rebuilt to a 27er as I would like a bit more tire size for traction, yet I don't want to go back to 26. I will still rock the Chris King hubs though as they are brilliant and by far the best investment I have made.

    I want to also still stay tubeless, and maybe Crest rims again unless other options should be suggested.

    I just converted to 27.5er using DT Swiss rims (no tubeless though). 26er looked odd with the new BBs (2012 2er). Dont regret the decision at all. the only downside is the limited choice of tubes if u dont want to sport an MTB tyre. Currently, there seem to be some retro looking tyres, the Schwalbe Marathon Green Guard (1.6") and Schwalbe Big Ben (2") on the market. All apparently come wired which adds another 300g I reckon.

    Big Ben is so far a very good and comfy ride. Hope we will soon have more to choose from.

    I will run MTB tires but am wondering how fat I can get into the frame. With 700, the 35mm is really getting to the limits, but I can run with my 26 wheels an easy 2.0. Still my 26 wheels are no Chris Kings. It is too bad Stan's does not release his carbon rim to be laced up. Crest are light but a bit flexy.

    There's plenty of space unless u'll be running 2.4" enduro tyres. Standard XC tyres shud be fine. However, the BB2 comes with a headshock fork donno what the clearance will be like with a standard fatty.

    I can run almost any 26er tire without problem. Right now I have a 120 fox float with a wood bros headset.

    Nice bike, althought a bb should be black and only...

    36 single ring?
    Do you know the before and after bicycle's weight?

    Bars are 62cm according to cnd..
    But 58cm carbon flatbars would be my choice

    Thanks, I thought long and hard about keeping the all black look but I really wanted the titanium bars and the saddle was a bargain.

    38 ring, just right for my commute.
    I haven't bothered to weight it yet, the wheels and tyres need to go first.

    I thought you'd cut the bars down, must be the angle of the shot.

    How's the crank working out, I had considered one myself but decided to stick with the tried and tested Shimano?

    Miss my old 26" badboy and since my surly straggler was crushed to death at 8 weeks old I have been looking for a replacement commuting and mile muncher bike.

    My lbs isn't getting there 2014 cannondale in stock until may!

    Another only has one badboy in stock but it's at a store 400 miles away so is being sent up so I can view/buy it....madness.

    Anyways, next week I should have a 2014 badboy 9.....700c wheels and discs should be ideal.

    I picked up a 9 a couple of months ago and I really dig it so far. My only regret is not getting a 5 (with the rigid solo fork and built in light) or the 8 with the alfine. I'll probably add the solo and alfine eventually, but it seems like it would have been cheaper to buy them stock.

    I don't think the Solo Fork is available on it's own without a bike, I bought a whole bike and swapped the fork out.

    I found a Bar/Stem/light on ebay, but make sure you get the correct steer tube size, they came in both 1.5" and 1.56" dia.

    I have a Rohloff hub and love it and having the frame with the eccentric BB to tension the chain makes for a clean look, not essential, but a nice touch.

    Got some company for my Bad Boy singlespeeder...

    Found a ´95 mid season Killer V 900 (´95 Pepperoni fork but the newer ´96 frame) for small money on ebay in the right size for me. It was in a horrible state but the frame and fork were in good condition so I gave it a try. Stripped it down, send frame and fork away for powder coating and buildt it up with allnew components...

    So here is the result:

It was in a horrible state but the frame and fork were in good condition so I gave it a try. Stripped it down, send frame and fork away for powder coating and buildt it up with allnew components...

    So here is the result:
