    My first SS, first 29er and first HT since the 90's. I love it so far, I never want to ride my FS bike anymore.

    Frame: Trek Marlin, 17.5"
    Fork: Rockshox Recon Solo Air TK Silver w/ G2 geometry
    Wheels: Stan's Arch w/ ZTR hubs
    Tires: Bontrager 29-3 Team Issue 2.0" w/ Stan's sealant
    Cranks: E-thirteen XC SS
    BB: The Hive
    Chainring: Blackspire Mono Veloce 32T
    Cog: Surly 20T
    Chain: KMC 710SL Gold
    Brakes: Avid Elixir 5
    Rotors: Avid G2CS 160mm
    Headset: OEM - Came with frame
    Stem: Bontrager Race Lite 90mm
    Handlebars: Witchey WCS Carbon 15mm rise
    Grips: Ritchey WCS foam
    Seatpost: Thomson Elite 27.2x350mm setback
    Saddle: WTB Silverado Team
    Clamp: Hope non-QR
    Pedals: Crank Brothers Candy C

    The only thing I may change this year (unless something breaks) is to get a HBC 20T cog. Next year I'd like to get a carbon frame and either Reba or F29 RLC, maybe also better brakes (not a huge fan of the Elixirs, I just happened to have them leftover from my Fuel EX 8) and Eggbeaters.

    Ok, so I mostly commute and run errands on this, but it sees a lot of singletrack in form of cut throughs and I do take it on trails from time to time.

    And I've included a couple photos from the ride home...

    FS SS more fun than HT SS

    So I'm rehabing a sprain knee and thought the fs rig would be a little bit more of a smoother ride than my ht ss. Well I had all the old parts from when I first converted over to ss several years ago so I didn't have to buy anything, just took about 1.5 hours of time to convert everything over. I was really impressed with how well the bike handled on the trail as a ss. The ML is a great bike geared but I thought as a ss it would be kinda sluggish. This setup bombed through turns and downhill and although it's about 5 lbs heavier than my ht ss, I didn't notice it in my overall time. I think I'm going to leave the gears off for now and maybe throw a Paul tensioner on there. The surly did fine, some small pops when I really torqued the chain but with this type of tensioner I've had similar problems on other bikes, so I picked up a half link to get the chain a little tighter and if that doesn't fix it, I'll go with the Paul setup.

    Took the plunge and bought an inexpensive SS 29er (GT Peace 9r) in January having never ridden either. The most fun I've had on a bike in many years! Two months later picked up a used El Mariachi frame, finished building two days ago, maiden voyage yesterday. Had a blast!!

    If my bike were that ugly, I'd shave it's ass and make it roll backwards!

    Not really, just teasing you. It's nice. I think the green and brown go good together. Did you paint it? And what fork is on it.

    It's actually copper colored...sort of. It is hard to tell in the pictures though. I got the frame powdercoated a nice copper vein color, so it's a bit textured..wish I could show this by pictures because it is very cool. And the fork is a Soul Cycles Hooligan. I got it on sale from SC for $9 I was going to powdercoat the fork too but the color was so close when I saw it that I decided not too. I would have spent more powdercoating it than I spent on the fork. It is a light pearl brown/copper color and besides not being textured it is very similar. Got the frame for free from a buddy so $75 for the powdercoat and $9 for the fork isn't bad

    You need to invest in a setback seatpost. It is a beautiful bike besides.

    Thanks guys, yes I see a setback post in my near future. I was going to get one when I did the build but had the Easton CF one and had to see how it did.

    What's your gearing? Looks biggish (33x17?). I'm at 33x20 to 22. Trails get steep here and I have girl legs. And for the record, I would def get the glow in the dark if I got a Niner.

    34x18 for most of my training. 34x17 when I want to do intervals on the ss. I find that 33x18 is great for most of the steep stuff in Florida when I want to ride more than 60 miles.

    New Spot Frame

    Just bought this frame a couple weeks ago and swapped out the parts from my Longboard.
    It rides nice but I'm a little disappointed with the limited rear tire size I can run.

    Good choice. I was a little skeptical about it but now I'm really glad I did. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

    Just got the new fork on! Bought the bike about two months ago and have been riding it a bunch as the weather has gotten drier and warmer! Can't wait to try it out with some cushion up front!

    I had to go back and look, good call. Now I'm curious to why there are some pictures with the Surly sticker on down tube and others without it. Trick photography

    Ha! Good catch! The photos with the decals were taken a few days earlier. Upon finishing the project and photographing it, I realised the frame decals needed to go. I wanted her to be the silent, stealth machine. I only reshot the main photo and not the different angles.. Once I get another sunny day here, I'll probably take some others.

    Been back riding heavily for 5 months now and am absolutely loving it as my main form of commuting and exercising. This build is the result of all the research and education which started right here on these forums. Originally I had started with a 2006 Fisher Cronus and turned it into a single speed. Then, I started replacing bits. That's a slippery slope indeed!! Fortunately I discovered ChainReaction and Wiggle for cheaper parts than here in Australia. YouTube provided heaps of knowledge as well. My LBS guys were also exceptionally cool, when I needed a hand, especially considering I wasn't shopping with them. In the end, I brought them a case of beer.

    Ride on!

    Scored the frame for 50 bucks at a swap yesterday, couldn't bring myself to do HW with the thing sitting on the floor staring at me, so I HAD to build it. . As soon as I finished I went for a little test ride, ended up being a 2 hour ride all in and around town. I am in love.

    Is that fixed?
    I've tried fixed for uphill and it's awesome how I need less effort to climb.

    no its not fixed, dunno how I would feel about that, I do love coasting.

    -greasemonkeee
    yeah I was pretty stoked! I've been snooping on craigslist and at swaps for at least a year looking for a frame with ho' dropouts or track ends. ghetto SS is alright, but this is the real deal!

    The Heaviest Tranny In The World

    My Ibis Tranny in full freeride and stunt-crushing mode. It runs about 23 1/2 pounds with those big Nevegals, tubes, and latex. It slims down to about 22 with Small Block 8s. I will be shortening those hoses when I find the right stem and install the 180mm rotors that just arrived in the post...

    My new Sycip Diesel

    Just traded my Jamis Dakar XLT for this ride. I'm pretty happy. I have a Thompson post coming in for it this week. Still a lot of parts on my wishlist though....

    yes, I posted my setup yesterday in the "budget SS post", but figured, no one is really posting on that, so I will put my bike here for now. Tunturi stock (for now) with shimano 16t freewheel and shimano 32t chainwheel and cranks. Currently using my old derailer for a tensioner but got a tensioner coming in the post next week. I got a lot of things in store for this bike.

    Any have any suggestions on painting a frame yourself? I mean, I know it wont be that professional looking, but I want something better than just your average spray paint. Im open for suggestions.

    "Kampi" just means crank. HOP. seems to be an abbreviation for "hopea" (silver) ... and 152 is crank length. 152 mm cranks? Sounds short to me

    Picked up this used frame/fork/wheelset a few weeks ago and swapped over a few things from my Monocog and added some new items as well. Planning on a couple of more upgrades along the way also....
