    Inbred 29 AM Build?
    Wondering if anyone has built one up less xc oriented. Read the Singletrack #75 review and they make it sound more AM oriented. Curious as I consider any size rock or log on the trail a challenge. Why my Stylus has a bash guard.

    i run mine w/ 100mm fork and bomb downhills and small drops w/o any problems.
    i have a cannodale sl2 29er and much prefer the inbred.

    Pic's of your set up?

    I have been stuck between the Nimble 9 and Inbred... austerity looks at the Inbred while the "I want" side is the Nimble 9 or Honzo. If only the Inbred came with the sliding drop outs like the Honzo it would be so much easier.

    Also hard when all you seem to see is Inbred's in more of a XC type set up.

    sorry no pics,broke camera hope santa brings me one.
    the inbred does come w/sliding dropouts,it`s a little further down the page on their site.
    i dont have any experiance w/ the nimble or honzo though i hear good things about them.
    i looked at the cost vs. and chose the inbred and have not been disapointed at all.

    I have seen the horizontal version but not my thing. If I was to go that route much rather see the sliding Numble 9 drop outs.

    There is one with replaceable dropouts and the single speed ones are slotted, but the vertical dropouts are not adjustable.

    I think the biggest argument for the Inbred is the price - there is a 19.5 teal vertical dropout frame in the clearance section for $163. If you build it up and don't like it, flog it for $100 and move the parts to another frame. Or throw some junk road bike parts on it and turn it into a rail trail bike.

    As far as AM, the head angle is a bit steep for the usual AM, 80 and 100 mm forks are recommended with 72 and 71 head angles. I assume a 120mm would be around 70 and 130, 69.5. The bottom bracket height would be getting pretty high.

    I have an inberd (setup for commuting) and I love the thing but its not going to be a good base for an AM bike. the head angle is too steep and the chainstay isa bit on the long side. I will say though that is does have a good ride quality! it does a great job smoothing things out on my commute to and from work. this includes bunny hopping curbs and riding bits of dirt here and there and general rough roads and side walks.

    A mostly useless thread but it does talk about this:
    http://forums.mtbr.com/one/onone-29-...ot-812494.html

    From what I see in other posts, a 30mm change in fork length will make about 1/2 inch difference in bottom bracket height.

    one thing I noticed is On Ones UK sight lists the Inbred (vert drop out)as 69 deg head tube angle with a 100mm static, 70 degree 80 static and 71 degree with a sagged 80mm which conflicts with info on the US site.

    jadave76 intersting build as I didn't think there was much in the way of tech in Florida.
  • 12-19-2012
    jadave76
    There is actually. There are a couple ex mining areas turned state parks with lots of technical up and down. We don't have the long descents and climbs like in the mountains but still great. Alafia State park and Balm Boyette Preserve in the Tampa bay area. The guys at SWAMP club have done a great job with trail building and maintenance. There are lots of videos on Youtube.

    Guess after reading the Singletrack 75 review it gave me an idea. Though maybe calling it AM was to much but the closest I could describe it. Everyone I know here in Ontario is either XC or the Misfit type. Definitely not my style.

    The whole chain guide, wide bars, and short stem guess gave me hope for a low cost frame. Already BTDT with the whole long chain stay short top tube nonsense.. Peace 9r. But after checking numbers looks like it will be a 3 month wait for something more usable.

    Unless of course a miracle happens.;)

    Running my large slotted dropout inbred 29er with a 120 and I love it. Haven't measured head angle, but the bb height is around 12.5" static and I like the extra travel. I think climbing may be slightly improved with 100, which is how I planned on running the bike. My fork came at 120 and is adjustable to 100 or 140 via internal spacer. If the OP is interested in pics, I can post.

    short travel maybe but pretty much AM everywhere else. -1 degree salckset too, for extra points and awesomeness ;)

    the 2.4" On-One chunky Monkey is mahoosive, it barely fits the arch of my poor reba :D

    It's not only a wall but mud- and apparantly rain-fee place which is actually cannot be said about Hungary nowadays! :P (We have 30-45 cm fresh snow, no chance for biking...)
    You found a very nice background for taking those photos, even if it's just a wall. :thumbsup:

    yes, it rains a lot over here, you can't see the puddles but I was feeling them with my feet, thats for sure :D

    Btw, I'm thinking on some tuning on my Inbred 29er since it seems it's simply gives me best MTB geometry that I've ever had. Well, I'm also a fanatic of trail riding on a bit harder way and I also like the simplicity of hardtails. (Back to the roots, I would say, I rode 140-150mm travel fullys during the last 4 years.)
    At a first step, I will buy a new 'real' tubeless wheelset since my current tubeless wheelset is only a ghetto-style one. I need to change my Selle Italia XR XC saddle and my handlebar to a new one witch is slightly wider than the current one (>680mm), ~700-710 would be perfect. Any suggestion regarding handlebars (carbon preferred)? :)

    (Later on, maybe I will invest on a Gravity Dropper Turbo seatpost as well but now my abilities are quite limited. I will buy everything from that income that I will get by selling the parts of one of my old 26er hardtails.)
