    Like the build so far bob. You don't see those real often and that is a stellar example. You should have been the 69er R&D guy!

    My build so far.
    Thanks! I actually rode my friends last year and it was amazing so I decided to build one up from scratch. Researched for about 4 months trying to find a NEW old stock frame. Found a 2007 17.5 in North Dakota and the guy shipped it to Ohio for me. The other I got from a local shop owner who had it in his basement collecting dust.

    Here's the build so far:
    Niner carbon fork
    Stans 29" Crest w/ silver Chris King ceramic ISO hub w/ DT Swiss Supercomp spokes
    Stans 26" Crest w/ silver Chris King ceramic ISO SS hub w/ 18t Chris King cog
    w/DT Swiss Supercomp spokes
    SRAM XO Crank w/ MRP spiderless 32t 'Bling Ring'
    Chris King silver bottom bracket
    Fizik Gobi XM Saddle
    Bontrager XXX carbon seatpost
    Bontrager RXL carbon big sweep handlebar
    Bontrager 75mm XXX carbon stem
    Chris King silver headset
    XTR Trail brakes w/ XT 160mm rotors

    As it sits, it weighs 17 pounds even. Still need to add chain and grips.
    Trek 69er SS (in progress), Trek Superfly, GT Force Carbon Expert, Trek Madone 6.2

    No, and honestly I don't want one either! I like the fork's performance when it works, but way too many quality control issues with the Duc32.

    My 'Monkey

    Bought it as a complete bike. Just Surly's canned component list and I'll upgrade as needed. I spread the wear and tear over 5 bikes, so it should last a few years before I have to start replacing stuff. Pretty vanilla compared to some of the sweet rides in this thread. My first singlespeed mountain bike, but I've got a couple road fixies, so this was a natural progression.I think one could spend an entire weekend going through this one thread!

    Ditto goodoljake...there can be a lot of beauty in simplicity. Not everything looks "better" because it's "busy" Some things are best off that way. I don't recall seeing too many On-Ones, Singulars, Haro Mary's, or GT Peace's, Q-Balls, etc that were fugly. Cool thing about steel frames aside from ride quality is that tiny tubes and big tires are sexy!

    That is a sweet Monkey...I rep it and copy it to my bike porn!

    Word! I have a soft spot for the KM though - wish mine was gray, I see way too many black ones (or maybe I just ride with my brother who has my old black one too much!).

    Here they both are in action (err, in a break from the action). Mine (on the left) actually has some sweet new wheels that I don't think I've posted in this thread yet. Not that they show in the picture.



    I have a couple forks on the way to play around with on mine, I'll try to take a proper bike porn picture once the first one is on Maybe when I get the fork cut I will pick up some black brake cable housing, because those are NOT green!
    Yeah I only carry cans cause I'm a weight weenie.

    Marin Palisade Trail repurposed

    I had been itching to build up a blingy light weight rigid 26er again.

    Here she is:

    Marin Palisades Trail frame
    Exotic CF fork
    Syncros bar and stem
    ESI chunky grips
    Deore M596 brakes
    Mavic 317 rims on LX centrelock hubs
    Geax Saguaro TNT tubeless tyres
    Blackspire DH chainring 32T
    Gusset 16T cog
    Shimano Hollowtech II cranks and BB
    Shimano M540 pedals
    Cheapie headset (to be replaced by something blingy when cashflow allows)
    Sprung tensioner (to be changed to static tensioner when cashflow allows)
    9-spd chain
    Crank Bros Cobalt 3 seatpost
    Gusset seat clamp
    WTB Silverado saddle

    Maiden voyage will be this week and it'll do commuter duty so I don't destroy my 29er's tyres.
