    Got my Mary today so stoked! '09 Army Green. Had my first ride no complaints except for the Mary Bars aside from some climbing I am not a fan. I plan on replacing the bars, and I have some BB7's and speed dial 7 levers at the house I'm swapping out along with a Salsa chainring and Surly cog this evening photos tomorrow.

    I'm 5.77 feet, and ride a titanium 29er with a 23.5 inch top tube and 16 inch seattube.
    The top tube says the 18" version and the seatube the 16" version...
    I think the 18" wont have enough stand over height...Or would I get toe overlap with smaller one..?

    Some advice would be great!

    Thanks!

    Regards Rolf
    Sounds like an 18" to me...I go with the TT measurement as long as there's not too much seatpost out and I think you'll be ok on 18.

So far I havent missed the suspension one bit.
    Nice changes...but I'm not a fan of the gold bars. Black looks best imo.

    Give the Mary bars a little more time, they will grow on you.

    Yea, I am using the BB7s and speed dial levers too. Its a great setup. I went w/ Richey rizer bars and they have been really good also.

    Which is the diameter of the handlebar that will fit the original Ritchey Pro stem? Which one of these would be the best?

    That is correct, original stem and Mary bar clamp area is 25.4.

    Mary Top Tube

    Can anyone tell me what the effective top tube is on a 18 inch Mary please? I've tried the Haro site but they don't appear to have any archived info.
    Thanks

    The geometry is the same with the latest Mary. ETT is 600mm(23.6") for the 18".

    I had to post again since my original photo was not the greatest. Installed: xt clips, kore bars, salsa chainring, surly cog, and bb7s. I need to get some extra cash and get rid of the ugly seatpost.

    Mary SS >>>> Mary 2x9 w/bashguard and Niner Reynolds steel fork. The Niner fork is very precise, predictable, quicker handling, Great in tight single track, really happy with it. It weighs the same as the oem fork. Makes a great frame even better.

    Quicker handling? What's the A to C measurement on it vs the stocker? Shorter than stock I'd guess if its quicker handling. How's it ride compared to stock, cushier, harsher, or same?

    Stock fork 473 A-C, 43 mm rake.

    Niner fork 470 A-C, 45 mm rake. This lowers the front end a bit and steepens the head angle a fraction.

    A few more differences. The dropout/leg junction on the Niner is a bit stouter than the stock. The dropouts are thicker and forward facing. I always thought that was a bit thin in that area. Also the leg tube shaping is much different.

    I haven't noticed much difference in cushioning. But there is a definite change in cornering. Someone who doesn't ride agressively in tight corners might not notice it however.

    Only 4 rides on mine...

    and I really like it. And I'm thinking about putting Mary bars on my other bike (if they'd still work with an inch cut off each side.

    Wtf ??

    What is it with this bike.. I've got a 2010 Mary SS, this little gal is addicting. I can't believe how much I've fallen for her,, Its been a good solid year of spinning on her, and let me tell you., you can rip up some ground with this gal.. I love the thoughtless way you just have to climb aboard and pedal,, you learn how to utilize your full pedaling stroke, up , down ,sideways, whatever works,, but the payoff is power, and quick acceleration. OMG, Im so sold on the SS train of thought. I only ask myself, Why did I wait so long. I have to thank my riding buddy "Flats" for coaxing my into this love affair. SO worth the work. Thank you HARO for making the Mary SS, but I'm also alittle sad to see her dropped from your line.

    i was under the impression that the stock fork was a 38 rake. anyways, i recently put a P2 fork on mine (the stock fork was fabbed crooked, which led to all sorts of fun issues). longer rake, lower crown height- i immediately noticed i could keep the front end down- where i want it- when climbing. not sure if there's any noticeable difference in ride quality otherwise. seems to steer a little quicker, but that might be psychosomatic too. but the old tendency for the front end to lift is definitely lessened.

    You aren't the only one with a crooked Mary fork. I had to use a washer between the fork and the hub to get the disc brake tabs moved out so that a rotor wouldn't rub on the brake caliper.

    Replaced it with a used White Bros Rock Solid, and I love this new fork. It is so much more responsive and I can bomb hills much faster than the stock fork. A huge confidence booster! And no more stupid washers to accomodate a fork defect.

    hmmmm...my stock fork didn't ride weird or look crooked, but I had to put one washer under each brake caliper adapter to keep the ends of the screws from pinging against the side of the brake rotor during hard turns and such....

    yeah, i haven't bothered to find out exactly what the problem is- whether it was the legs themselves or just the dropouts. didn't have rotor rub, but the top of the tire was offset by a good 3-4mm all the time, and when i'd get in the front brake pretty hard, it would yank the wheel out of the non-DS dropout a little bit.

    i had the slightest inclination to replace it with suspension, but luckily somebody offered up a takeoff P2 for cheap. has more rake (either 4 or 9 mm, depending on what the reality of the stock fork is), and 7mm less A-C height. altogether that got enough weight over the front end that i'm happy again.

    if i can remember to take a pic, i'll post it. honestly, though, other than saying "P2" on it, there's little perceptible difference. well, i guess it doesn't look quite as beefy.

    and i doubt a picture of the old one would be of much help. but i'll take a picture of it with the tire in so you can see the offset i'm talking about.

    finally got around to looking at this- one fork leg was a full 1/8th inch shorter than the other. the dropouts were perfectly in phase otherwise, but the legs were definitely different lengths. which explains everything above. ended up donating the fork to yellowbike- with full disclosure of the problem.

    It is approximately 2.5" I have a WTB Weirwolf in mine with Velocity p-35 rims which are wider than the stock wheel set.

    Sweet, I was going to ask the same question about rear tire width. I have plans to get a 2.4 ardent and run it in the back as well as the front which is set up currently and have a poor mans fat bike this winter. I am running the Ardent on a flow at 20PSI and it rides really well. A few PSI lower than 20 and I start getting rim strikes. I am at 175 pounds.

    I just read through the entire thread and I didn't see any info or pictures of people putting a carbon Niner fork on this bike. Anyone tried this or have anything to say? Is it blasphemy to put a carbon fork on a steel bike?

    I bought mine used and so far have it set up with a flow/hope front wheel after I tacoed the stock wheel. A WTB rocket v saddle (salsa branded with a chilli logo on the nose), a salsa pro-moto alloy bar, kona stem, Zeus Carbon seat post, Green Salsa skewers (really nice bling to the bike), Black ESI chunkies, BB7's with SD7 levers and 185's front and back, F-Ardent/R-Slant 6 2.2, and SPD 520's.

    Future plans for it are...
    Black Niner Carbon Fork (shoulda jumped on the jenson $200 sale)
    Rear flow/hope wheel w/ Ardent 2.4
    Nicer 18T cog

    Niner carbon fork should work great. I like mine (on my Kona Unit) more than I liked the '07 Mary fork. Geometry isn't an issue and its lighter and rides better IMO. An all-steel frameset is a classic/romantic ideal, but the Niner fork is tough to beat. I chose Niner's "nude" color so it wouldn't look too out of place on any frame.

    I bought a used White Brothers carbon fork for my '08 Mary. It worked great for about 6 months until I noticed what looked to be a stress crack in the clear coat of this carbon fork about halfway up the leg that has the disc brake mount. I realized that I might be playing with fire. So I replaced it with a Salsa fork. The Salsa fork was a full pound lighter than the stock Mary fork (which was a truly awful beast) and behaves just like the White Brothers carbon fork I took off. I'll stick with steel forks.

    I have a 2009 SS model and have heard / read of a conversion to a geared Mary simply by swapping the drop out... Masses of changes, will pop pics on when I see the thread is not dead.....

    The single spread has a flush drop out, I presume this is simply swapped for a drop out which has a mount for the rear mech. Then just run cables through full length outers and attach using zip ties..

    All the dropout manufactures I've been to don't make a drop out anywhere near comparable!

    Can anyone post a link to a supplier of the dropouts please?

    BHC, thanks for responding...

    I'm in the UK, I was speaking with the UK supplier today and they don't supply the part... They suggested a US or Australian specialist provider maybe able to help.

    Do you have an email for your supplier please? Even better if you had a link to the part or component number etc....

    I just love my Mary, I ride it to work every day, 20km off road across Salisbury Plain each way....

    Resprayed powder coat, elixir brakes, Roval control wheelset, schwalbe tyres, carbon 600mm bars (big mistake, Easton monkeys on order). Brings this in under 26 pounds..

    Original stem, post, saddle and cranks....
