    Smile 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
    Roll-X tires
    Torelli tubes
    Endless kick ass rear cog
    Soulcraft tensioner

    I am running a 32:19 gear

    For you SS purists, I do have and ride a fully rigid steel SS as well.

    GO LAKERS!!!

    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.

    Nice bike. How do you pronounce "Szazbo"??? Saz-bo? Zaz-bo? Za-za-bo?
    I'm unique, just like everyone else....
