    It's 24lbs. Pretty solid considering minion ss rear and minion dhf front.

    I upgraded my rims to the new Crest and that shaved 1lbs from mine just in time for 24HOP. El Mariachi is down to 25lbs these days.

    Latest addition to my Specialized Carve SL. Manitou Marvel Pro. Really transformed the bike. The rigid fork was great but the Marvel really opened up the bike for me.

    New plus wheels for my Wozo. Running 27x3 chronicle rear and 29x3 DHF on the front, 110 fork with a 32t oval I've been sitting on for a while. 20t wolftooth cog and pc870 chain.

    With the wheels and fork I've slackened the bike out to about 66.5 from stock 69. With 425mm chain stays I can't wait for the rain to stop.

    Its a QR axle. No need for anything fancy with a rigid fork.

    The A/C is 485 with a 45mm offset.

    Thanks! I'll have to post it up. No issues so far. I think I have the tension dialed in pretty well. But, it hasn't been through a whole lot of really bumpy terrain either.


    [QUOTE=*OneSpeed*;13022660]HA! ghost ring, Sweet!

    how does that setup work for you? any issues in bumpy terrain?

    you should post that in my thread too.

    Titanium single speed full rigid 29er mountain bike dippin' around Treasure Island, been riding it for about 6 years in different configurations, takeaway lesson is get a quality frameset as the foundation, the rest will take care of itself.

    I was lucky enough to buy this Vulture frame, fork, stem and brakes from a friend last week. Added the White Industries ENO 650B Wheelset and some parts that were laying around and BOOM! 650B Singlespeed Mega Machine!:)
    I am going to race it this weekend at a local MTB Time Trial. Should be interesting.

    LARRYJO,

    That's awesome!

    Some fantastic details on the frame.

    Glad it's way too big for me or I'd be super jealous.

    Here's my new-to-me Niner One 9. It's a 2009/10 scandium silver/raw frame that was painted HOK Tangelo Orange. It has a niner carbon fork, 34/18 gearing, Arch EX wheels with Stans Neo hubs, tubeless bontrager xr3 expert front tire, tubeless specialized fast trak rear tire, Truvativ stylo crank, RDO stem, RDO seat post, niner wtb seat, niner aluminum bar, crank bros candy pedals, and shimano deore brakes. Weighs in at 19.6lbs.

    I've ridden it a total of 30 miles so far and I'm loving it. My trail bike is going to get a much deserved break this season.

    Not quite done, and wearing some old Hayes brakes/rotors while waiting on warranty replacements for a SRAM Guide RS set, but I'll put it here since it just went SS after a few weeks of riding in the same gear.

    2016 Canfield Yelli Screamy
    -Reba "RCT3" 120mm
    -Arch Mk3/DT350(36T) w/XR3 Team Issue rear
    -Flow Mk3/DT350 w/XR4 Team Issue front
    -shimmed KS Lev 272 dropper
    -huge PITA SS conversion w/a Blackspire Stinger that required Dremeling it to clear the chainstays, plus a 0 offset direct mount chainring and way outboard cog to match, but it works as well as any fixed tensioning method could with an oval. When it comes time to replace the chainring, I'm going back to a Singleator, though(no slop with an oval).

    'Course I can't tell any difference pedaling it, but I sure did enjoy pulling that shifter and RD off.
