    Speedneedle after a month of riding seems ok...
    weights 99gr instead of 109gr printed and I believe matches better the looks of the bb.

    Both saddles are super comfortable!!!
    When you are talking just 1 or 5 grams in a saddle then go with safe. I also agree Speedneedle looks good but I think Tune is hit and miss with products. Stem I have from them is solid and light as hell, but I would not be using their hubs as I know a lot of reports of problems from people around here, who are also well under the weight limits. Their carbon bars are basically Schmolke, and speed needle was a different designer. I guess the second bad boy for the wife will get a Brooks rubber saddle next.

    I just found a few PM's in my inbox that I never saw asking about how I did the fender on my Solo. I want to post the photos as a very late reply and maybe it will help someone else down the road.

    It's basically a longer bolt on the mounting of the disk and then a spacer to off set the struts. The second side is eliminated and it's works great.

    Sadly the bike is for sale as I haven't used it in more than a year as I've been remodeling our house and the kids are now going to a much closer school so I'm selling it to fund a dirt jumper to use in the park. It's up on ebay right now for a very low price. Hope it goes to a good home.

    Which Bad Boy?

    Hi All,
    I'm new to this forum and an aspiring member of the Bad Boy club. I have my heart set on getting on for my daily commute into central London, and for the odd shortcut through the park. I come from a trials / downhill background hence my resistance to getting a full on racebike. The commute is 9 miles each way.
    I am about 6 ft 3 and have tested a Bad Boy 29er XL in my LBS. It rode fantastically (although a L may be worth trying) but they unfortunately donít seem to have any other UK Bad Boy models (BAD BOY - URBAN - RECREATION & URBAN - BIKES - 2014) in their shops for comparison purposes. My concern is that the geometry is essentially that of a mountain bike setup and with very little (/absolutely zero) road riding experience, I am not sure if I would be better off with the Bad Boy 6 or 9 which have a shorter fork and what looks like a completely different frame? Has anyone compared the different Bad Boy models? Interested in weight / handling / flexibility for modifications.
    I definitely donít need to be doing any mountain biking on it but whatever I buy has to be able to cope with the odd light park trail as well being able to handle Londonís potholes covered roads and urban sprawl. Light handling and solid brakes is a must too given the traffic conditions..
    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Cheers

    I changed the tyres from 23mm to 32mm and swapped to flat pedals...
    I love it.

    Yeah no problem...It's called Bike Hand. I see now they are making one with an adjustable arm to accommodate different sized wheels up to 29er. Mine is not, but still works ok.

    Hi

    I have a Bad Boy rigid 4. Haven't used it for some time as I ride a road bike.
    But I want to use it as a commuter for work.
    The only thing I hate is the triple front chainset. So I want to change to a proper compact double.
    Has anyone done this conversion? What components will I need?

    Thanks

    Steve

    Do you mean chain rings?
    Swap the crank to a 2X model. GXP usually is nicer Bottom bracket. Should be British threaded.

    Chain rings, crank, etc. Front and rear mechs. Shifters.
    I have Shimano 105 10speed knocking about, I measured the bottom bracket width & I'm not sure it will fit. I think the bottom bracket on the bad boy looks to have some spacers on the ends, so I presume the crank is wider to fit the chunkier chain stays on the BB. But I'm not wholly sure!
    I presume I would have to change the rear wheel to go to 10 speed aswell? Original Maddux rims fitted. Is it possible to go to 10 speed with the Maddux rims?
    I wanted to see if anyone has changed to a two chain ring set up, and what was used.

    Road cranks won't fit as they have different alignment usually and the larger chain rings will be too large. MTB is slightly different.
