    Nice. When I said 'sick' before, I was talking about your handle. imsorrywhat FTW!

    Best ever. Welcome to the show. Nice sleds, too.

    Totally awesome. Best MUSS assembly ever seen. And the custom colored shock fits right in. You have made Bianchi proud.

    Also, credit goes to running City 700s on the SISS, a 26" SS hardtail! Others have run thinner knobbies but slicks work, too! The SISS came out like the Roger Cyclocross bike they made before its time (UCI now allows disc brakes in CX due to underwhelming public participation).

    Nice MUSS, welcome to the elitist club. The fork is interesting, but only for the color palette, suspension looks weird to me on a Muss.

    Mine has been 650inized: 650B Picture Thread

    What does it weigh? I'm at 21.5lbs.

    I am just curious with the SISS,

    what's your top speed?

    According to the calculator with 44x14 you can get around 38mph(overspin), that's so fast.

    You have 3? that's awesome.

    Is that AVID SD7? I use one and it's great.

    Rather than have 1 gears I think I prefer have multi singlespeeds. I know this is sound crazy but the feels of SS is just awesome.

    Although for budget wise I prefer gears but still if I have the money I will go for another SS and I don't mind using cheap parts.

    1 for cadence
    1 for off-road
    1 for speeding/long distance.

    You guys are going to be so ticked at me.
    I sold the SISS. (got an offer I couldn't refuse)
    Modified the MUSS to an XC racer:

    Took the proceeds and went to the dark side.... GEARS (I feel gross)

    If I can defend myself, I did make it a 1x9

    A racer with flat pedals?

    That doesn't look like the stock stem to me - http://www.bianchiusa.com/archives/2...mountain/muss/

    Crosstown Stew & ASH bikes above are full stock. Regardless, good luck with that setup.

    I love them and I don't think they make either of them any more (at least the same grip, but they might still use the name)

    They are:

    GR2 on the rigid Sir
    R2 Magnesium on the One
    and I also own a set of R2 Carbon's on my Jet

    To say I can't ride without them is almost true. To say I can't ride as far/long without them is true. The GR2's are my newest set and they are probably a year old. I think the magnesium ones are close to 3.

    They have completely revamped their model line up and I noticed that some models appeared to have the same name as mine but have been changed in various ways such as molding rubber into the part that sticks up.
