    GT Peace 26er

    I've been riding a 29er SS for sometime now, and figured I'd try out a 26" SS when I found this Peace locally for dirt cheap. Took it out for the first real test along my normal climb/route and man was that tougher than I thought it was going to be. My 29er gearing is 32x20, so figured 32x18 was about the same on 26", but climbing was definitely more challenging. Of course there's a lot of other variables, like geometry, tires, etc. After that first real ride on it, it certainly doesn't dethrone my Jabber, but descending was more fun than I expected, given the smaller hoops.

    Nice ride, but the valve stem cap is a real winner.

    Not a very good pic but you get the general idea.

    It's pretty much a "bits n pieces" bike i cobbled together as a 2nd winter bike. Only new parts were the DMR chain tensioner and the chain. It's a 32t XT middle ring up front and a 16t out back (i think). All the parts i had spare (frame, Thompson seatpost and stem, Hayes Stroker Carbons, XT wheelset) or acquired from a mate on the cheap (carbon rigids, Fast Traks, Deore crank and Spesh seat).

    Actually rides like a dream - i'm very impressed but too much of a ***** to convert my main ride to singlespeed

    Picture Update

    I know I have posted this bike before. This is an updated picture featuring my new magic gear combo, I change the stock 32 tooth out for a Raceface 33 tooth chainring and it made all the difference. So goodbye to the need for a tensioner.
    Before

    With new gear combo.

    Some updates to the Bullseye I got off CL last spring: Just got some Elixir 3s on it and some take-off Kona bars off ebay. Wheels are from another bike as is the stem. Still a tank, though.

    As an aside, bleeding brakes in the kitchen is not ideal. The cats were fantastic helpers, though.

    '12 Flash Carbon 29er SS

    '12 Flash Carbon 29er converted to single speed. Using 120bcd 37t chainring and 23t cog allowed me to use my existing XX BB30 crankset. First tried YESS ETR-V but it wouldn't work due to interference with tiny bolts on the dropout. Settled for a Surly Singleator:



    Then lo and behold today the guys at Salvagetti removed the Singleator and a few links, and Presto! Magic Gear Ratio! Happy to be on a "true" singlespeed now.



    Now gotta build up those Rabbit Holes...

    You may already know this, but you could slap an Eccentric on that bad boy and have many different gear combos to choose from (and be able to tighten up a chain when needed).
    BEER Components Eccentric Information
    Still, nice work with the magic gear.

    I looked at doing this to a Flash carbon a couple of years ago but their *may* be a problem.

    While the Flash is BB30 the circlips in the BB30 standard that hold the bearings in place on a carbon Flash are molded into the BB shell and cannot be removed.

    In order to fit the Beer eccentric it would *probably* require removing the material from inside the BB shell.

    I say *may* and *probably* because the while I looked at the published dimensions of the Beer I never had one at hand to test fit. I do know from looking at drawings it was going to be very close....

    I was pissed at Cannondale. I bought the frame with the intent to SS it but then found out that they hadn't truly followed the BB30 standard on the carbon frame (which specifies a removable circlip).

    2006 Redline Monocog

    Picked this up from a guy on CL last night. First mountain bike. First SS...

    I really don't know much about any of this stuff, but it has:
    Bontrager XDX Tires - Bontrager Race Modified 620 Bar - Salsa Stem - Soma Hishou Saddle - Cane Creek S-1 Headset and... I think everything else is stock. Very pleased with it! I rode a Trek (geared) road bike before this.

    Yea, Cannondale should remove Cannondale's right to refer to it as BB30 since it does not conform to the standard.
    Full rigid SS, Hardtail SS, Hardtail Geared, Full Suspension Geared.

    I'm in the market for a rigid fork either niner, bontrager carbon, or white brothers. Anyone have any insight on which is better fork? I.E. quality, fit and finish, or weight?
