    Not my bike or picture, but I found this a while back and liked the look. I may someday do this, when my back can't take it anymore, but like the XC geo for the moment.

    All the contact points are within an inch of those on my 29" Yelli, so it should be a fun ride!

    I should go get some bake adapters for my BB7s today, lol!

    I've got a new one. Should be an '89 RockHopper.









    The dropouts aren't slotted all the way and there's a hole at the end. Perfect for fitting an ENO hub.
    Chainstays are 440mm and BB height somewhere around 290mm, now! That's a lot of fun :D

    Frame too small for you? Nice build, bullet proof.

    im right at the top of the size range. 5'10" 175.i bought it to ride on greenways and flattish trails. Rips up the greenways nice and shreds the trails

    Yeah the surge geo is aggressive, it looks like it rips. The reason I say it is small is because of the seat positioning.

    Ros 9
    Bought a closeout Niner ROS 9 frame, thinking it would be a good foundation for a budget build. I already had a set of carbon wheels though, and it didn't feel right to put a bunch of cheap parts on the frame. In the end; I went a little over my intended budget :rolleyes:

    Frame - Large Niner ROS 9
    Wheels - Roval Traverse SL Fattie (30mm internal, carbon)
    Cranks - XX1 with 32t direct mount
    Brakes - XTR Trail (180mm front, 160mm rear)
    Fork - Fox 34 Factory (120mm with Kabolt)
    Dropper - Fox Transfer Factory
    Saddle - Specialized Power Pro
    Stem - Thomson x4
    Bars - Thomson Carbon
    Pedals - XTR
    Grips - ESI (Temporary grips in pic)
    SS Kit - Surly
    Cog - Niner
    Chain - XTR 11spd
    Tires - Maxxis Forekaster 29x2.35 (Looks like I have clearance for 29+ and may give it a try)

    Weight - 26.04 pounds. Still need to swap grips, shorten bars, and maybe swap the stem, so it will be sub 26 when done. It's 7 pounds heavier than my other singlespeed, but the weight seems to help when the trail gets rough.
