My Szazbo SS
Here is my new/old Ibis Szazbo SS. My Spec S-Works Epic SS had an early death due to a run in with a parking structure, I got the Szazbo frame used. The seller was a little conservative with the description but the bike does ride well, maybe its the 5 inches of rear travel. Fortunately I was able to transfer most of my parts, except seatpost, clamp and stem.
Current build is:
Fox F100X fork 100mm
Middleburn UNO cranks
Phil Wood Ti BB
DT Swiss Champion wheelset
Avid SD SL V-brakes
Pauls love levers
Thomson stem 120 6 degree( inverted)
FSA XC190 bar
Spec. rival sl seat
no name seatpost
hope skewers, seatpost clamp
Endless kick ass rear cog
I am running a 32:19 gear
For you SS purists, I do have and ride a fully rigid steel SS as well.
sweet szazbo! wish i had that color. I'm about to do a complete overhaul on mine, bring it up to date a bit... i've owned it 10 years and still love it
my FS SS
Yeah, I really like the bike, it rides very good. Though I have only a couple rides on it. With your overhaul of the bike you might try it as a SS. The URT design makes for a great FS SS. What shock do you have, mine is the Alps 4. And I think its time is done and needs to be replaced.
I have the original Fox shock on there, its definitely time for a replacement. how does yours feel with the 100mm fork? I think im going to keep mine geared, im trying to find a fat chance to build with all my single speed stuff and my amp fork.
