    Thanks. I quite like the Rotor setup - I'm running the 27/40 rings, and find them very good. I had my first race aboard the Highball on Sunday, and had heaps of fun

    Found a magic gear(30x20), but not quite high enough for me. Will fit a 31x19 next.
    Nice magic gear, the bikes looks super clean like that. However in my experience using a magic gear can cause excessive wear on the hub bearings because the amount of tension that is created. Not saying it will for yours, but the chain looks tight.

    Magic gear done incorrectly maybe, but that goes for any single-speed setup, you have to have proper chain tension.

    That's the way I like it

    I made the CF leap.

    I think it looks pretty good, even with my older parts and em... personal component preferences









    First ride will be tomorrow

    I'm really enjoying this bike - as I expected I would. Did a 34 mile ride on it this morning and it was just perfect - climbed like mad, railed the turns and soaked up the rough pretty well for a hard tail. Granted it wasn't a terribly technical ride, but 3 hours in the saddle of a hard tail was never this comfortable for me in the past.



    Built mostly out of spare parts in the garage - a set of Charger Expert wheels, Reba RLT Ti w/20mm, Noir cranks 1x9 with X.9, Easton EC90 seatpost and Havoc bars, Elixir 7sl 185f/160r. 23.5 pounds with a hefty Nevegal up front. Feels and rides lighter than it weighs.



    $500 million for more irresponsible EBRPD land management? No thanks.

    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead!

    Hello guys I can advise which type of stem should I put?
    I currently have a trial set in 6 ° 90mm negative.
    I do not know what to choose whether to put a 75mm or 90mm ..... you say that? this is my current setting will put a picture ....
    I state that I have already paid in order to stem ENVE well so I have to decide which one to choose

    If you flip over the 90 mm you have, it will provide a closer reach and provide an idea of what a 75 mm could feel like.

    If you are trying to achieve a lower more agressive position, you may want to try some flat bars rather than the risers that appear in the photo.

    In any case, its difficult to provide advice on your stem length as its a personal preference with your positioning and fit.

    The bar is flat and not that of ENVE Another question is raised ... you know where can I buy Maxxis beaver from 60 tpi?

    Highball Build

    Just finished my maiden ride on mine. This is an XL frame.

    It weighed in at 21.5 without pedals and 22.3 with XT's.

    Built with Stans Arch EX stock wheels, Racing Ralph 2.25s, XTR 2x10 crank, shifters and derailleurs, Elixer 9 brakes, Thomson Masterpiece post, Thomsom X4 stem, WTB Silverado SLT seat, Noir T30 700mm carbo bar, Cane Creek 110 headset, salsa collar, and SID XX 100mm fork.

    I was going to run Crests but went for the strength over weight on that one. This will get trail ridden and raced and wanted reliability. Crests are nice but Arches are pretty bullet proof. I've run these stock Stan's on three other bikes and have had reat luck with them.

    I sold a Santa Cruz Blur and Superlight before building this. I've been riding a Niner One9 full rigid (see pics of niners) all year and using it against the geared guys at the races and the Santa Cruz's weren't getting any love. I'm sold on 29'ers now.

    BTW, the Niners are 18.5 and 17.25 without pedals and no major weight weenie parts. My wife has fork now and is still sub 20.

    Off to the races this weekend to check her out.

    Alright, I too will play along... Here's mine! Xt/XTR build. Notable parts are e13 XCX Cranks and BB, Easton EC70 Carbon Flat Wide Bar and Crest 29 handbuilt wheels (laced with tougher spokes). 21.75lbs as she sits! Love it... I once said "If love is what makes a Subaru a Subaru...then LUST is what makes a Santa Cruz"

    Enjoy!

    Just finished building my new Highball. Took it for it's first ride today and first impressions are good. Need to put a few more miles on it though. It's a large with XTR groupset, Formula R1 brakes, SID XX forks and BOR wheels (1380g for the pair!). Comes in at 20lb14oz with Garmin and light brackets. Most of the parts came off my old 26" hardtail but the frame, fork, saddle, wheels and tyres are new.
