    Can someone help an old singlespeeder get a clue? What front derailleur do I need exactly? I'm looking at SLX level. Currently it has a SLX Shadow+ rear derailleur, 9 speed SRAM chain, 9 speed Shimano cassette, King BB, and Middleburn 2 piece crank just in case compatibility matters. Bottom Bracket Area of 9:Zero:7 | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

    Is this what I need?
    Shimano XT M770 E-type Front Derailleur - AEBike.com

    So all built, and she digs it. We've only been out once though. The SLX Shadow+ derailleur is pretty cool, but doesn't play nice with the DA Thumbie and 9-speed cassette, so I put it into friction mode. I proceeded to order SLX trigger shifters and a 10-speed cassette...and DOH! I forgot to throw in a front derailleur into the order :madman:

    I'm also waiting for a Jones Loop bar so I can position the levers and shifters better. The old-timey H-bars don't allow much option for placing the controls, esp if for her smaller hands. These bars are best relegated for singlespeeding.

    I'll also put on Speedplay Frogs when we're not riding on snow or sand. Other than that, I think it's a cool looking bike :thumbsup:

    Jeff

    Riding in the snow I like a more upright position. I have an 1-1/8" stack of spacers below the stem. Post pictures of your build when you are finished.

    Just got done installing my Raceface Turbine crankset. Can any other Raceface users chime in regarding your spacer/washer config? I have one 2.5mm on the non-drive side, and along with the e-type der. mount, one 2.5mm on the drive side. The instructions that are provided with the crank give no info regarding 100mm bb.

    NOTE: I had the lbs chase and face the bottom bracket shell on my 2011 170mm frame, and was not impressed with how much material removal was needed to square everything up. I would suggest that everyone have their bb shell checked.

    same here for my atlas however no F der so mine was more about chainline setup.

    I also had this done and would not build it without having it done however mine was minimal on the pug.

    I got out the ruler

    small 907 fatbike center of crank to top of saddle top 18"
    stumpjumper 17.5 SS center of crank to top of saddle top 18"

    small 907 fatbike center of bar grips to saddle tip 20"
    stumpjumper 17.5 SS center of bar grips to saddle tip 20"

    both bikes have the saddle top level with the height of the grips
    both bikes have the same setback of saddle to crank center
    both bikes fit perfect
    I always by my bikes by effective top tube because I know what fits me
    the old 907 medium has the same effective top tube length as the new small
    if I was running loop bars I would need the next size up but I like my boring 10 degree sweep bars "my sweet spot"

    on a positive note its snowing right Now

    Nice bike! Yes, in December 2011 I bought myself a 2012 9:zero:7 frame in orange, but to justify the purchase I also got one in red for my wife. Here is an action shot on my 9:zero:7:

    Not one bit. I prefer the handling characteristics of the 9:zero:7 over the Pugsley. It’d be kinda cool to build up a Pugsley in one size smaller as a singlespeed though for doing stunts and tricks on.

    Here is my 9zero7 McGrath after it's maiden voyage today. No snow but still lots of fun out on the trails dialing in the fit. The bike blasted through everything on the muddy trails and I was smiling the whole time. I was right between a small and medium on the fit chart. I went with the small and the fit is perfect. I will ride it for a while and when I finalize the stem height I will cut down the steerer.

    Tiboy, GREAT looking bike! I am glad the size "small" was the right choice. Great idea on dialing in the stem height before cutting down your steer tube. Enjoy your bike, these things are awesome!

    I was cautious as the Medium frame has a 20mm longer head tube, so I included an extra 20 mm in the steerer length in case the small fame didn't work out. I'm currently at 10mm under the stem using the riser bar that was included with the build kit, looks proper and feels right.

    I finally had a few nice snow rides and love the bike, way more fun than hiking or snow shoes! I have a 110mm stem on the way, I will install it to finalize my fit compared to the current 100mm stem and cut down the extra steerer tube.

    Love the looks of that one^. Color works great, and the small frame with the big tires makes it look tough! I wonder what it would look like if the handlebar matched the rims.

    How tall is your wife? My youngest daughter has pretty much taken my new 9:zero:7 build over so I thought I'd start looking at smaller frames. I like the lines of that xsmall very much. Nice build.
