    X2....but I also would like to know if oval chainrings are for real or a gimmick that will fade? I just went to absolute blacks website and was intrigued by their claim.

    I've got a week or two with my Absoluteblack ring on my Gryphon, and it's pretty cool. I don't notice it on flats, but mashing up a climb it really evens out the pedal strokes.

    I was trying to solve a specific problem: an ss that's comfortable to commute on but also works on trails. What the new oval ring should do is let me have a non-spiny road cadence, but maybe give a bit of a boost to get over roots.

    Still plenty of snow/ice on the trails though, so I haven't really been able to beat up on mine.

    Same issue here (regarding ride time) I'm headed up to the syllamo trail this weekend and should get a gooooooood feel for it. I only spun it around the neighborhood with a 32x20 and its already so easy to spin I couldn't feel the ovalness. It looks freakin sweet though.

    Been riding them first on my 1x10 Stumpy hard tail race bike (34t) and then on the 26" SS rigid (34t) and Kona Unit SS 29er hard tail (32t).
    They seem to me to be more noticeable on the single speeds than the geared bike and that's mainly when the traction is getting dodgy.
    Steep, standing grinds on the SS seem to have more traction than with the round ring and I've swapped back a few times to test.
    It feel weirder going back to round rings than going to oval felt in the first place.

    I'll be ordering more when these wear out.

    From a 77km 5:30hr back country ride on Saturday.
    Single speed, oval chainring, dropper past and tubeless.
    Doesn't get much better than this

    She sure is! Good to see another Coconino on the forums. I will have to get some shots of mine on the trails and post them. Just wish I had scenery around here that was a quarter as beautiful as you have!

    I always forget about this guy; I built it about 4 years ago over some Thanksgiving time off. This was my first build. It is my wife's college mountain bike that I stripped down. It took a while and many different combinations of gearing and half links to get it to sit in the vertical dropouts. 36/14 I think is where I ended. In my haste to have it as bare as possible, I cut off the back brake supports, I wish I had not. This is my townie/bar hopper. Super light, probably just about 20-23 pounds. That Phish sticker on there is circa 1994 or so too.

    I could tell a difference with the oval ring. Makes climbing smoother and no loss of traction when you are really cranking the pedals over on a steep chunky climb. Two thumbs up.

    My Sycip Diesel, I love this bike! Built with: Sycip Diesel, DT Swiss XR 4.20 Rims with Chris King Single Speed Hubs, Chris King Headset, RaceFace Ride XC Crankset & Bottom Bracket, RaceFace Deus Stem, Easton EC90 Carbon Fiber Bar, Avid BB7 Mechanical Brakes, Avid FR5 Brake Levers, Rock Shox Reba RL Fork, Easton EA50 Seatpost, Selle Italia XO Saddle, Maxxis 3C EX3 2.2 Ikon tires, Speedplay Frog pedals, found the Chris King/DT Swiss wheel set on eBay for $490.

    I have been away from mountain biking for nearly 8 years so the SS will be a challenge but really love how it rides. Running a 32/20 combo once I get my fitness level up will switch it out for the Chris King 18 I have.

    Picked this up a few weekends ago. Local rich dude had the LBS built it up for him, for crazy money, then changed his mine about it and told them to sell it. I got it for 1/4 his outlay... He had odd color tastes, but can't complain for the money. Looking to replace the 29r's with a 26+ wheelset soon...

    Like the fat front more than the 29er front setup. Perfect for bombing down the descents. Probably need to lower the gearing as 32x17 just won't do with the type of terrain I ride.

    Wow, that Jones is gorgeous.

    So I know 26" is dead, but ever since sticking a rigid fork and biggish tire on this, I can't stop riding it:


    For the past few years it's been my #3 bike, but this year I think it's going to be seriously competing for more saddletime.

    @tim_w_sage what do you ride that you need/want the +front on a hardtail with the 29er rear? I'm just curious as I thought if I was going to do a +front 29er it would be on a rigid fork or just a regular HT 29er.

    Specialized Rockhopper 2009, only original part is the stem and the goods around there. Latest add was the handlebars (third ones for this rig) and grips, along with the i23 rim on the back, it feels pretty good and its tubelessness is incredible.
    The bike was a bit relegated to be the loaner bike, however, since I singled it, its been getting good km.
