    Definitely wouldn't mind having this. So awesome, great job. How much did the whole build cost you?

    Looks awesome with the new power coat. What kind of chain is that? And were you able to lose the chain tensioner because of this chain?

    A Shimano NX01 singlespeed chain. Road fixies use them. Heavier wt, but it hasnt stretched 1/2 as much as standard 8/9 speed chains. Dont run a tensioner, have sliding dropouts. When i reach the limit i drop some links or but a new chain...

    Passing thru the local shire today, just built up a Niner ROS9(frame off ebay about half of new), KMC 610HX chain, Truvativ AKA SS crank w/GXP BB, SingleWorks cog, I laced up a Hope EVO2 SS/Trials hub to a Halo Freedom disc(36H). I borrowed the front end off my RIP9(Pike 140mm 46mm offset, AKA stem , Answer bars ) to suss out the fork offset situation given the slack HA, a little flip-flop but not noticeable really while riding. This is a really fun bike in the rough and tumble and climbs super well (no unwanted lifting or bouncing around which I was sort of worried about), might grab a 51mm offset verson of the Pike. Coming off a GT Peace 9R SS(rigid) that I've ridden at least 4 years, a nice change. Borrowed seatpost of an old Iron Horse 7p3 needed a shim 30.9->31.6.

    I just swapped my Unit for a Gryphon, but I kept the Unit's fork since it was a perfect fit for my 26" inbred:

    My Crazy Single Speed

    I decided to try and treat myself to a lightweight single speed. I ordered the XMIPLAY IP256 frame and forks which is made from T800 carbon and is supposed to be light. It's built with BEER Eccentric BB, XT brakes and crank, some old wheels, somewhat heavy tires, cheap stem and a chinese carbon bar. So far it's pretty good, but at 20pounds could be lighter. I'm using the Endless bike Chainrings and cogs.

    Now I didn't feel like leaving the bike stock matte carbon, so I thought to paint it and didn't feel like being a dork and sticking my name on it. So, since I'm a bit of a fan of Josh Whedon's Firefly series / Serenity Movie, I decided to make it after that theme. My local auto body shop painted it (and lost many of the small parts in the process - oops my fault), and it came out rather nice. Today I raced it for the first time and was constantly getting comments on it. Funnily, I discovered afterwards that there is actually a Firefly bike company out of Boston I guess. Whoops. This is not one of those of course!

    So far the bike seems good. The ECC started creaking at just 30miles though, so it got fiddled with and now seems OK again. I started with 32x21 for training and getting my knees ready, but just raced on 32x17 on a rolling hills course and it was perfect. No suspension is a bit bumpy though! If you have questions, let me know!

    My Crazy Single Speed

    Sorry for the duplicate posts. It said "Server error" on the first try. Now I can't find a way to delete one.

    Here is my XMIPlay IP-256 with a custom paintjob from my local auto body shop. Anyone ever seen the TV Show / Movie? Got a lot of positive comments at today's race.The "New" Post Your Singlespeed!-20141222_165125.jpgThe "New" Post Your Singlespeed!-20141222_165135.jpgThe "New" Post Your Singlespeed!-20150129_083336_hdr.jpg

    2.4 Chunky Monkey front, 2.25 Smorgasbord rear. they are not "tubeless ready" tires but they have sealed up just fine on my Stan's rims with Stan's/ home brew sealant.

    I work in a bike shop and the price of buying On-one products from the Titus store is better than any deal I can get from one of our distributors. same for the stem and handlebar, purchased together from Titus.

    finally got to ride it today. handles like a champ! it's just as nice if not better than the Karate Monkey that it replaced. the chainstay is 1/2" longer than my KM and I thought I would hate that but it has not been as issue so far.

    Picked up a Specialized Carve SL a few weeks ago and swapped some things from the spare parts bin.

    In winter/spring beast mode it weighs 24.2#. 32/22 gears. With tubed wire bead Conti Trail King 29x2.4 on XT/P35 wheels and SRAM Centerline 180/160 rotors.

    In summer/race mode it currently weighs 21.8# with nothing fancy/exotic. 32/20 gears. Still using the stock wheels, brakes, crankset. Bonty XXX carbon bars and stem, carbon seatpost from my Roubaix, tubeless RaRas, Raceface chainring, KMC chain, WTB Silverado saddle, ODI grips might get changed for ESI Chunky.

    I love the MRP. I didn't know what I was missing. You are correct, sir. I squeezed in a ride prior to this snow storm and now I just get to sit and stare at my new toy until it melts enough outside to ride.

    Please keep an eye on that. I had 26" Smorgasbords mounted on ztr Flows and blew off the rear tire completely after a tiny bunny hop over a drain gutter in the alps. Not exactly fun. Maybe the 29" tires are different beasts but in the German community I read about that issue more than once.

    Updated my Cannondale 1FG. Will change the crank to shimano zee. Anyone knows which brand carries 50mm stem for fatty headshok? Looking for one but can't any yet.
