    I did it .... I'm a SS geek.

    Pulled the trigger this morning and Dave is building me up a sweet REEB. A customer didn't like the color that the frame came out so it was sitting there. He sent me the pick describing it as Caterpillar yellow, like the heavy equipment. I think it looks more short bus yellow, I'm kind of short bussy, I took it.

    The sweeper just got slower for now.

    The opposite happened to me when I got my first SS--suddenly I found myself riding a whole lot faster since I didn't really have a choice !

    Congrats!

    Very nice. You are benefiting from a whole bunch of 29er SS evolution with that frame.

    I've been looking for a long time. I think the REEB is the Galapagos iguana of SS. It's funny how close the new Niner ROS is to this bike.... wonder why....

    Groovy! You'll get some great mileage out of that. I agree with Kristian - you'll be faster, overall. What's the spec?

    Awesome! And by the way Jesus rocked a single speed. I just came up on my one year anniversary riding SS. Everyone is right, you'll get faster before you know it.

    Me too. I wonder if it has the Cummins 5.9 that's used to be in the long buses?

    If your going to make your bike look like that, is it going to be a fat bike?

    Will the REEB take a 140 fork? That's a key difference in the frames (between it and the ROS9), I think (not to mention EBB v. Sliders, shorter chainstays and slacker ht on the ROS).

    A 140 fork would be suboptimal on the REEB. You make a very good point about a few key differences there. The REEB is meant to do everything well in our environment - an all rounder per se. Epic rides, XC racing, aggressive terrain, you name it. We've spent our time on long travel, short stayed 29ers and have been less than impressed with them for our style of all day do everything kind of riding. While not quite a traditional geo, the REEB is still a little more classic in its numbers compared to the Niner or the Transition TRansam, or the Canfield Bros, etc. And don't get me started on EBBs...

    Stickers, lift tickets, beer, all welcome. You can stalk if you bring beer and Salida's best whiskey.
