    Cool-blue Rhythm my SS has a fat problem

    ...but not a weight problem! 27.5lbs built
    Krampus large frame/fork
    Knard 120tpi 'ghetto' tubeless with 26" split tube & Surly rimstrip
    wheel size does seem to make a difference as went with a 32x20 from my regular 29er setup of 34x20
    750mm bars make it lovely to romp 'round...

    What's up with your one bottle cage? It looks like its meant to hold a flask underneath a regular bottle. By the way very nice bike and I like that bell.

    rad.

    I love the look of those knards. May have to see if I can get my hands on one to try and mount to a set of flows that are collecting dust. Between that and the biggest tire I can find in back, I may be able to fight the fatbike cravings for a while.
    Yeah I only carry cans cause I'm a weight weenie.

    Way nice. You might save a pound or two by going to a carbon fiber bell. :-/

    That thing looks like a hamburger with a paint job.

    looks good! love the green!

    the "cage" mounted on the down tube is a toolkit holder, and a normal bottle cage can piggyback on it...

    Awesome build. My fatbike lust may have taken a turn in a different direction.
    What kind of pressure are you able to run in those tires?

    That's a nice ride...

    ... what size frame and how long is the top tube, just looking at it seems like you have plenty of room to move around.

    Thanks

    i'm pretty sure that since i'm not racing often anymore, the krampus would be the absolute perfect bike for me. i'm totally commited to 29, rigid, ss, and have been for years. the krampus seems like it's the way to go. i'll have to get one.

    I'm really enjoying my Krampus...Single speed is definitely going to be experimented with in the future on this bike.

    It's maiden voyage was the AZSS Single Swizzle this weekend. A glorious 45mi romp which it handled fairly well on, nay better than it's rider did!

    I was running around 12psi, the front burped a lil bit about 35mi in on sone gnarly waterbars, but held up nicely! I've rocked it at about 9psi in the short snow in FLG as well.

    It's a size large frame, and works amazingly well with the slack head angle. You can read up on geo here: Krampus | Bikes | Surly Bikes

    I was going to toss a 9spd on it, but now I'm kinda wanting to keep it SS for a lil while... too much fun!
