    I also like the way he Photoshoped out the beer can that was holding up the bike when he first posted it.

    new monkey commuter

    Got some conti 47mm commuter tyres and some fleegle bars coming. It's a bit of a tank but a bit of fun.

    Really like the black niner and crosscheck previous posts. I always wondered what a black niner would look like. And now I know. And know I want one.

    New here. Putting my old Koski Procruiser/Trailmaster back together as the one speed it was in 1980. Looking for a few parts. When I get it together I'll throw up a pic. Nothing like a clean one speed

    Cabin Fever Project 2011!

    My first mtb single-speed. I've noodled around on a s/s 'cross bike a fair amount but this thing really reminds me of my first bikes, wind in my face, huge grin on my face, zipping around the neighborhood without a care in the world!

    Now the snow needs to go and I'll put my wrenching skills to the test!

    Just a 13.5" Trek

    I like the geometry, it's great for aggresive riding.
    Currently 32x18 which is too heavy for me but I will change to 32x20 as soon as I get the cog.

    I am gonna change to wider bar soon and the tires 2.40 front 2.25 rear.

    How do you like those CST Cambers? I have entertained the thought of getting them but there arent many reviews of them out there.

    Actually I use camber just for on-road and a little bit off-road since it's only 2.10 and doesn't have good grip for mud/wet terrain.

    I am not gonna recommend you this tire, the thread wear off fast.

    As soon I have bigger inner tube I'll change to cheyene 2.40 front and caballero 2.25 rear, my terrain is mostly dry sharp rocks. This two combo is nice since it's also light on asphalt road.

    have about 3 rides to date. My only complaint is that it is not as squishy as a steel fork. But tracks well and I like the offset.

    I bought this cheaply from CL as a first SS and fell in love with the bike and SS in general.

    As i can't afford to build a 29er all in one go I plan to start from the front and work back:

    1. Carbon 9er fork on order through LBS
    2. looking for 29er front wheel on ebay/CL

    I'll ride it 69 for a bit while I:

    3. do a bit of gradual "carbonsing" all over, punctuated with some Ti nuts and bolts

    unfortunately:

    4. buying a frame is a long way off. perhaps 2nd hand moots might be affordable by then!
    5. 29er back wheel to sign and seal it.


    then I can take all of my current parts and put them back together again to use as a back up.

    It'll take me a few yearsmind you...

    She's a Lurcher.

    Bred in England/Ireland for hunting Hares(jack-rabbit) and Deer by crossing sighthounds and other working dogs

    Okay, I'll join in. My first single speed (sold my 575 to do this). Can't believe how much fun I'm having, just wonder why it took me so long to make the move.

    18.5lbs as pictured. Full on race machine! Tough, too, as during a race this weekend I went down pretty hard at 17.9mph according to my Garmin. Stem got twisted around ~20 degrees, but nary a wobble in the front wheel. Then tonight a good size stick jumped off the trail and lodged in the rear wheel locking it up. It bent a spoke pretty good. Already accumulating battle scars.

    penny farthing and chapacubra

    Played around and put an American Classic 29" Disc into an old Surly instigator fork.

    F-ing love it. Bowls over anything and not missing the nasty, cheap, heavy Marzorcchi one bit. Climbs like you wouldn't beleive up twisty, rooty single track.

    The poor "chapacubra" can't keep up any more and I love this thing so much i took it out twice today!

    Now looking for a similar sized fork as the surly but with a bit more give and less weight.

    Also have Noir Flat bar on order and just bought Ergon KORK grips.

    The Niner Carbon fork is very good, probably the best. But in your case, you might need less setback due to the fact that you are rocking the fork back and changing the steering angle. twentynineinches.com recently did a review of 29er rigid forks and you should probably read it for general info. Based on their review the OnOne carbon fork had very little set back and they did not like it as much as the Niner fork on a regular 29er (unless you wanted an all out twitchy race bike) but it might serve you well in this application.

    Is that chupacabra a lethal being?

    It looks so vigorous like hyenas or dingos.

    680mm with 12 degrees of sweep. It's a Vector Carbon 31.8, not a Vector Low Rider (which is their 25.4 version)

    @blak_byke thanks. I've already invested in the mango bits (carried over from 3 frames!) so might as well make em come alive!

Based on their review the OnOne carbon fork had very little set back and they did not like it as much as the Niner fork on a regular 29er (unless you wanted an all out twitchy race bike) but it might serve you well in this application.
    by "set back" do you mean offset?
    because offset is forward, away from the frame of the bike, not back, towards the frame.

    the rake is only going to change if the new fork's longer (or shorter) then the old one.
    the niner fork's 470mm is about the same as a 4" travel suspension fork.
    your current rigid fork may or may not be about the same length, check the specs.
    it's hard to argue that the extra quick handling is due to the extra rake or the simple fact that the niner fork is about a pound (or more) lighter than most steel rigid forks.
    BUT if the niner fork's longer than your old one, then the extra offset works in your favour. (reduces the trail number, which would be higher with the increased rake due to the longer fork)

    there's a couple people with the niner carbon forks on 26ers. (I'm one of them)

    Yes I did mean offset. Offset and set back mean the same thing except in the biking world. The niner fork is equivalent to a 100 mm suspension fork sagged which (standard interpretation of 20-25% sag) would be 75--80mm suspension fork fully extended. Since he is going form a 26er front end to a 29er front end, it will raise the front end and actually change the angle of the steering tube (the frame will pivot around the back axle as you raise the front end). As you do this, you will actually change the angle of the head tube slightly as well as changing the trail. All of this will tend to slow handling. A fork with less "set back" will tend to quicken handling all things else being equal.

    I just picked up a 2011 Kona Unit 22" from my LBS yesterday.





    Had to add a little bling!



    I would like to raise the handlebar since the top of the bar is 3" below the top of the seat. Any suggestions at the following thread would be appreciated.

    I love that stick.

    Please no more Kona SS, because it's very tempting for me.

    Great bike man.

    BTW the handlebar kinda bent down, maybe if you put it on normal position you could raise a little bit.

    Thanks Unmarth.

    This bike has undergone many changes since I first put it together about 1 year ago.

    Until recently, I was using a tensioner but found I was able to bypass the tensioner as the chain fits snuggly around.

    I ride this bike to work where we have great bike facilities (secure cages, lockers, showers) but I'm now putting another SS MTB together using an old-scratched up Cro-Mo Diamond Back frame which I will be locking up at the train station / supermarket.

    Good luck with your project!

    There are some awesome bikes in this thread. Great for inspiration. Here's mine I recently built up. It's been awesome fun so far. My arms feel like they're going to fall off when i hit some rockier descents, but everywhere else the rigid forks rule. Its my first rigid and ss mtb and i think the gearing (32-16) is pretty good so far. Some of the steeper climbs are a bit of a grind but for the more gradual ones it feels great. Just got these new schwalbes to replace an old set of narrow kenda's. Should make it ride even better

    Great bike!!
    Looks so mean and vicious darkside-ish.

    BTW is that Avid brake lever? I miss mine since I broke it because of overtight.

    Thanks. I tried to keep it mostly black. I always like the really stealthy builds. Yeh, BB7's and avid speed dial 7 levers. They're great, very adjustable.

    that was temporary, I've since installed a fox f29.

    The poor "chapacubra" can't keep up any more and I love this thing so much i took it out twice today!

    Now looking for a similar sized fork as the surly but with a bit more give and less weight.

    Also have Noir Flat bar on order and just bought Ergon KORK grips.
    Love the R32, too!

    Thanks! That is a steel rig. I just really like the feel and ride quality of steel. It has been my staple ride for six years now and still rides like a dream. I did recently throw on some some jones h-bar to see how the hand position change would work and I like them so far. Good to know there is a blacksheep thread, I will have to check it out.
