Looks good! I love the combination with the Vassago fork!
I have a bike building addiction.
I loved the Lurcher so much I couldn't pass on the 2011 Inbred 29er for $175 when I saw the Odis fork for $87 shipped I decided to do a "budget" build.
I get asked all the time "what can build for around a $1000?" So that's what I set the budget at for this build. I wanted a bike that was stout and could handle a 300 pound rider. I wanted it to be a very reliable bike that wasn't to heavy.
The final build cost was $1080, there was no labor because I built it and had a friend lace up the wheels. The final weight was 25 pounds even not bad when you look at the build list. A set of tires could bring it down a bit.
Looks good, just built up the same frame and fork combo (applesauce/mojave) Quick question, did you have to use a half link or anything to get the chain the right length in the horizontal drops? I used a SRAM pc1 w/ 32/18 gearing and -1 link was slammed to the front and +1 was near the end of the drops. Used a half link, but would like to delete it if I can.
Nope, no half link it sits about half way in the drop out. I'm running the same ratio on the Lurcher and it sits the wheel in the same spot.
Here are a few more pics of the bike. These were taken before I road Riverbend Trails in Sugarland Texas for the first time.
The bike felt great, very solid feeling. I do need to ditch the 800 plus gram a tire Nevagals. They are slow to roll, slow to get moving and well just plain slow.
Its a medium 2011 swap out. The seat has gone up another inch or so since that pic. I'm 5'11 with a long inseam.
I took the Inbred to double lake today for my second ride on the bike. It handles the same as my Lurcher but feels so much different at the same time. It makes me want to build up a Scandal so I can compare all three back to back.
The over weight slow Nevagals came off after todays ride. I'm replaceing them with some s-works 2.2 fast trax tires I have laying around.
Its a bummer they changed the geo of the 29er Inbreds for 2012:
You say it feels different to your carbon frame, can you elaborate? Also, why do you say that the 2012's have a different geo as from what I gather it has remained the same.
The frame handles the same, there was no learing curve from the Lurcher to the Inbred. The ride felt more lively. The impact from the rear wheel was more of a dull thud compared to the quick wack of the lurcher. The front end isn't as stiff on the Inbred as it is on the Lurcher. I'm 230 pounds on a skinny day so a less portly rider may not notice the front end stiffness.
For 2012 the inbred 29ers lost the swapouts, are now set up for a 100mm fork and have a one degree slacker head angle. I'm sure there are some other small changes as well.
The S-Works Fast Tracks whent on today and the bike lost one pound four ounces and the tred rolls much faster.
