    Inbred 29 build thread

    After months of planning I've finally got the parts to build my inbred... I can't wait till I'm off work so I can go into work and finish it on my own time.

    There is a frame like yours on the auction site here in NZ and I'm tempted to go after it but never having built a bike from parts I'm a bit nervous ;] so I'll be watching this thread for hints and tips.

    Building a frame like this is pretty easy. The only thing to note is that I sprayed the inside with T-9 (rust inhibitor) for some peace of mind. Building a bike is all about having the correct tools, if you don't have them go to a local bike shop.

    Very nice... Cant tell you how much i love my 2nd Gen Inbred 29er (with Flows). Seriously an awesome riding bike. It is responsive, takes a good amount of the bump off most stuff and setup with a good fork it is near a superhero!!! With 100mm up front I feel like it is completely responsive without being twitchy (running a 19.5" with a 70mm stem). I have had multiple people stop me and talk to me about it, riding or not, and have completely blown the doors off guys in much more expensive bikes.

    What all are you setting her up with? Put up your spec list and waiting to see what she looks like and your ride impressions!!! NOTE: be careful with rear tire clearance and some front derailleurs, I have an M770 XT fd and with anything larger than 2.2" I have to just about slide the wheel all the way back to get clearance. I started out running a set of 2.35" tires and the rear wheel was as far back as I could go to clear them.

    Nearly finished... I need a longer bolt and some spacers for my chain guide and I need to get some long rides in to finalize my position and cut the housing and hoses. First thing that hit me was how much more comfortable the total package is than the motobecane outcast.

    my first inbred build

    Anxiously awaiting my inbred 29er swap-out frame and was curious as to others' thoughts on forks.

    The question, for me, is not whether to run rigid, but what rigid fork to try. Any good/bad thoughts on any of these:
    white bros rock solid
    on one cro-mo
    salsa grande
    surly KM
    origina 8 black ops

    Drew, you must live in Florida...

    I've heard many good things about the new Surly KM. Thinner tubing, lighter weight, sleeker looks, etc. The older models weren't the greatest (from what I've heard). I haven't seen any steel On-One forks around, but if you can find one, I'd go with that strictly because of aesthetics. The salsa is more expensive, but they're in high demand and you'll be able to resell it if rigid isn't your thing. From this store its actually cheaper than the KM, so I'd pull the trigger on it now to save $30 or so.

    I'll be running my inbred with a Kona P2 I've had for some years, but like some of those forks you listed, don't seem to be in stock.

    Update

    Work has been slow so I took the time to go tubeless, the conversion was a breeze. The tires easily inflated without lubrication while using a floor pump. I'm still awaiting different bars/stem.

    Most recent picture of mine after pulling her down and dusting her off for the season. Just changed the front tire to a GEAX Gato to match the GEAX Saguaro in the rear. After a short gravel path ride with some pop offs the Gato seems like a great tire. Should have a better idea this weekend. Seat of the pants weight is about 28lbs.

    Looks Great! I got the same frame in orange and have everything, except for the fork waiting in the garage to be built up. Have a Salsa cromoto grande on the way that KodiakBear mentioned from Outsideoutfitters. What size frame are you running there? The 16" Inbred's effective top tube length is about 1/2" longer than my 16" Vassago, add in the different seat tube angle and I am not sure about stem length and if I will want any offset in the seatpost. I am just going to use an old Titec seatpost for now and experiment with several different stem/bar combinations I have in my garage and figure out exactly what I want. I plan to run mine with gears, since I already have a Vassago Jabberwocky SS. I need to mount the BB and crank to see if the GEAX Gato will allow me enough room to run a front derailleur. If I can, plan to run a 2X9 setup.

    If this thing rides anything like it looks, it is going to be kick a$$. Welds on my frame are the best I have ever seen on any production steel frame. After purchasing the frame from Planet X, was planning on just slowly picking up parts here and there when good deals popped up. I did start out that way, but as soon as I got a set of wheels, it was a done deal. Freak'in obsession I tell you. Been 4 years since I built up a bike and forgot how much fun this part of the process is.

    I've just put two SLX crank sets on my Inbreds. Nice looking cranks without spending a fortune.

    I like the Shimano cranks, cheap and work fine for me (Deore LX, Hone).
    Don't forget to have the frame bb faced when using external bb bearings.

    I second that, you just might want a new (steel) middle ring. 32x16 is beast for a 29er IMO. Jenson has them for 130 I believe.

    I went with LX's on mine. People have said they're about a good as SLX's and XT's, which I doubt, but they have nonetheless gotten good reviews and are cheap.

    I am very partial to shimano stuff as far as value and durability are concerned. Can't wait to see your build!

    hi guys

    question, i've ordered the On One Inbred 29er Single Speed LTD Edition. question is i bought a set of dt swiss sl450 that come off a geared specialized, will i be able to run the ss conversion kit on the rear hub with no issue, does the distance between the rear stays(axle length) accomodate for this or would i have to get a short freehub?

    ps. I'm new to single speeders
