    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

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

    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

    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.

    What stem and bars are on your Rockhopper? Is th steerer tube 1 1/8"?

    I am asking because I am looking for some bars for my son's MTB and he wants either high riser or BMX type bars.

    One of the best upgrades for a SS is SS specific hubs.The wider flanged hub makes a less dished and much stronger wheel. Just a thought.

I commute about 18 km a day on it, take it on the trails with the long fireroad and trail climbs I have always ridden, and apart from steep twisty rocky singletrack I don't miss the lack of suspension at all. New to rigid steel single speed mtb and already I'm hooked!

    Question to you more experienced though, descending on hard corners, I hear and feel rotor on pads, something is flexing and it makes me feel a bit uncomfortable, like it is just not quite solid enough. Skewers are tight. Likely the wtb i 23 rims or the kona p2 fork? And is it a concern?

    But nothing to do with the type of flex he's getting.

    I would be interested to see the Ikon on the rabbit hole. Would be a nice lightweight race ready tire.

    Kona Explosif 2016. I bought it stock with 1x11 Shimano, but soon started experimenting with using just one gear. After a while I thought I should convert, so I did.

    Had already replaced the rear hub with a Hope 4 to get more POE, but if I knew then I'd go for a SS specific hub.
    Gearing is 34x20T which is perfect for the "gnarly XC" I ride here in Sweden. No problem at all keeping up with my buddies running FS bikes with lots of gears, ha!

    The "New" Post Your Singlespeed!-_dsc1636.jpg


    Would want to slam the saddle since I never sit on it (except for transportation to and from the trails), but the ferrules for the bottle holder screws interfere with the seat post. If I shorten the post it will be too short for needed "normal" height.

    Aw what the heck, I'll post it here too.
    Here's my chrome Mongoose ATB, converted to fixed gear urban cruiser.
    Not completely done yet, the left side pedal is crossthreaded in the crank arm and can't be removed.
    I'll be fitting a shorter crankset, new pedals, pedal straps, and a longer seat post before too long, but for now it's servicable.
    I also need a new chain, the one on there is a bit of a hodge podge of 3 different chains, but again it works good for now.

    Rubena Cityhopper V99 tires in Grey,
    48-16 gear ratio.
    New tektro canti brakes, stops hard!

    I actually have one that would fit, but I'd like to force myself to stand up. Also, I'd need more than 150 mm drop to get the saddle lower than it is now when I slam it.

    Plus, I want to keep the bike as clean and simple as possible. Got other bikes for when I need more versatility (on longer rides).

    Wait...did you add a strut brace thingee to the top/seat tube junction?

    And has the seat tube been bent? Or just an optical illusion? Looks like a seat tube from an El Mariachi.

    You got some voodoo going on here.

    Looks great.

    Yep Honzo not the Unit sorry! The Voodoo is kind of a rare bird at a full 500 A2C but it maintains the geo perfectly, stoked on the combo as that fork kind of fell in my lap and I built the bike because I had it haha

    I must admit to having never seen a lefty rigid fork before... pretty cool.

    It may be something for the fatty crowd in the winter if they're running the shock in the summer. Otherwise, why? Seems like a very niche product.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    I'm afraid that my fork is even more "rare" than cannondale rigid fork. The "Lame" is handmade in Italy by Caam Corse (J-EMM) for Gasventinove Bikes brand....

    Thanks! I actually just ordered decals today haha. The bars are unbranded which is unfortunate as they are quite comfy.
