    Anyone called you a roadie yet? That is the comment I get when I show a bike with a lot of seatpost and some saddle/bar drop... Great looking machine!

    Got it a bit more than a week ago. It is a pre-production kona raijin, I think only difference is that it has a 31.6mm seat tube.

    I mixed parts with my old singlespeed before selling it.

    XT brakes, I9 hubs with arch rims, float 32 120mm. Crank is an fsa triple - feels stiff, I don't know what bottom bracket is in there. Truvativ noir seatpost, chromag ranger stem, Easton haven bars.

    One special thing to note, the saddle is a chromag trailmaster ltd. I thought the specialized phenom was good but this thing is fabulous - is like an old baseball glove. Is designed to allow lots of different sitting positions. Give it a try if you get a chance, is 300g and well worth the weight.

    Where the old jabberwocky scared me on the rough stuff (couldn't manual, long chainstay the rear wheel went over everything), this new one eggs me on. Feels like the rear is turning before the front. I've already beat a bunch of strava descending times I set on my fs bike, and wasn't really trying.

    Very stiff, climbing is excellent, I can control weight to hover front wheel just off the ground, max weight on rear tire.

    I am riding a 34x23 and its perfect for me and the trails I like to ride.

    Unlike the old bike that never geled with me - I am really really happy with this bike.

    What size tires? 2.4? It is nice look how it fills in and just clears your frame and fork.

    Thanks man. Its actually a 3.0 out front with a 2.3 out back. It really clears extremely well. I need to build up a wheel with a wider rim but it still works pretty good.

    Moment of truth at my local bike shop: my 20" raijin is 23#5oz.

    The "New" Post Your Singlespeed!-raijinweight_23_5.jpg

    Wow, tempting to do something, what with 22# within such easy reach. Pretty easily save 100g with a different seat, 50g with different grips...

    I've got the parts, maybe I'll give it a shot some time.

    But reality is that I usually ride with extra weight: a full 100oz camelback, tools, food, sweater, etc, and could stand to lose another 5-10 pounds from my belly!

    Fit, geometry, fork and tires are what matters to me.

    Well today was the day I converted to SS. Been itching to try it for a while and today I did it. Currently 32t x 17t with a surly cog on the back and a dmr tensioner as its a vertical dropout frame.

    So here it is my onone parkwood. It's so much fun.

    shame that on-one/planet-x doesn't have an up-to-date, ss-able frame at a reasonable price today.

    up-to-date ---> 1.5 headtube/650b/geo for 120-140mm forks
    ss-able ---> slot-dropout or interchangeable
    reasonably priced ---> like an evo2 or 650b

    ...and made from steel, of course.

    however, my faithfull 'bred on the train heading home after the latest ride:

    Soma makes the B-side, but it only takes up to a 120mm fork.

    Yeah the seat and stem could probably save you some weight and put you under 23lbs, but beyond that you're probably looking at spending big money to save a few grams. You could also throw ti or alu bolts where ever possible...
    or if you want to take it to the extreme trim some things like your seatpost.

    Aluminum Gnarvester 29+ with WTB Ranger 3.0 tires.

    Posted this bike on the Gnarvester thread, but hey, it's a SS, so here it is. Built up with carefully selected parts chosen for strength, weight and cost. My fish scale states 21.8 lbs, sure that is close. This bike rides wonderfully! It is light, flickable, super responsive and rolls over everything.
    Love it!

    that's a pretty cool conversion. did you have to mess with spacers to restrict fork travel or adjust height? probably pretty fun!

    lately i'm kind of liking the thought of a cross bike with 50-70mm of FS.

    true dat

    yep...it's da troof

    all steel 26'ers...dekerf, brodie, tons of konas, spec-eds and you name it like gt psyclone...all very nice

    29ers in lynskey, vassago, fisher, kona, redline....

    all left me lookin'.....found this silly soma on a 3 year old unsold deal and bought it for the heck of it....and will never sell it...

    something about the xl frame in prestige just gives me a correct firm/flex mix. and the longer than advised forks give me a 68.5 headtube angle.

    for what it's worth I have only kept 2 other bikes ... an old breezer jet now morphed into a gravel grinder (awesome ride btw) and my best 26er I ever rode by far....crazy but it's a production diamondback WCF carbon/steel thingy...rides like nothing else....just wish they still made them in 27.5 or 29er flavors...an amazing magic carpet ride.

    but yeh, this cheap little tubed soma is rockin' it better than my vassago only because of the sliders and 650b wheels.

    cheers mate, no adjustment needed for me. I ride it locked out as its mainly used a commuter, hence the gearing. Makes for a very comfy road/path thrasher.

    It's a pretty much stock Transition Klunker, the bars came with it but are quite similar to the cheapest MX bars i got off ebay for another bike, the rear hub is a Hi-Stop, apparently identical to the Shimano CB-E110, once the Hi-Stop is down, I'm going to switch to Shimano guts.
    Cheers

    Thanks! Awesome ride, DHFs fix the only niggling issues I had with the prior DWs mostly having to do with the low center knob height. Just need to get some Millers tire black for those awful yellow MAXXIS letters.
