    Tranny Love!

    After some playing around with the slot machine a bit to get the tension to hold well.. I think i put some different forces on it with setting my bikes up for fixed off road use...

    I am so digging the tranny 1st little wheeled bike that has been giving me losta smiles!

    A big thanks to the ibis crew for making such a cool hardtail!

    i'm enjoying it immensely

    Playing with the tranny some more

    Ditched the 5mm bolt on the slot machine for a stainless 10mm hex head bolt and its much ezer to get the 15 lbs of torque and ez to carry a 10mm wrench and be able to travel and take apart ect.... No really making much of any noise now Or slipping!

    the noise is not an issue in geared mode I guess?

    its more the SS mode thats causing the noise?

    Great bike. I'm druuuling. I was wondering if there was a significant weight difference between the flat carbon and the green or orange colors? I'm still saving my pennies for one, and hopefully I will be a proud owner in a few months.

    Thanks... gotta get some new pictures taken since I've gotten the Endless stuff on. I was planning on going out on it last weekend since the weather here has been so nice (and before the Deer season kicks in) but wouldn't you know it as soon as I get it built it rains for days. Freezing over now and decent riding weather but the hunters are still out till Dec 20th, so hoping the snow holds off for at least one ride before the new year.

    Reporting my setup is 22.xxlbs (LBS scale), kinda heavy for a SS, riding tomorrow, 30+ degrees and some snow... should be fun. Hopefully bring the camera for some new pictures.
