    My new and my first single speed, and I went full rigid.

    2013 Specialized Carve SL
    Then because I can NOT leave anything stock, I put on my Easton carbon bars, Thomson Masterpiece Seat Post, Specialized Henge Ti rail seat, Sram XX1 crank with 32t MRP Bling Ring, Endless 22T cog, Specialized Carbon 29 Wheels with tubeless mounted Ground Control Tires and Magura MT6 brakes (hoses trimmed more after the pic). Crank Brothers Candy Pedals with Ti Spindle.

    The entire package with pedals weighs in at 19.5 LBS. I have heard stock is about 23 with pedals.

    My Gunnar, soon to be replaced by a Cysco Ti frame (just for the hell of it, but the Ruffian is bad ass!)

    I swapped out the Easton Haven carbon seatpost with a Black Sheep Titanium seatpost. The Easton rode quite nice, and is actually lighter, but the Black Sheep Seatpost is a work of art.

    Thanks. This is big first for me. I have always been a 5-6 inch travel kinda MTBer, and I still have a Mojo HD XX1 set up ready to ride. Just opening up my mind to try something different. CT sux right now for riding, I tried last week, but it was not happening, so I have to wait another weeks or 2 for it's maiden voyage.

    Got a 2013 F29 Alloy 1 as a replacement frame and put a BEER EBB in it, love this frame Cannondale can do it right with Aluminum. I went for a red white and blue theme on mine. I have a Salsa Maxle Fork on mine but am interested in something like a Whiskey or probably a Niner RDO white.

    At some point I started feeling like I was riding a NASCAR - so I did the only reasonable thing and spent a few hours with a hair dryer and credit card removing decals. The fork is not the forever fork (that is being built as we speak) but I got it for a song, it feels pretty nice (I'll probably keep it on for a while even after the new fork arrives) and the rest of the build is pretty dope.

    King headset
    On-One carbon fork
    Arch EX's laced to DT swiss 240 centerlock hubs - SS bolt-on in the back, supercomp spokes
    Conti X-king 2.2's (yeah right they're that big - roll super fast though)
    bb7's w/ jagwire ripcords and speed dial 7 levers
    185mm front rotor / 160 rear. Ebay specials, clean sweep X I think?
    e13 SS crankset with niner ring (32t) and BBG bash
    endless cog (20t)
    candy II pedals
    thomson setback post
    some bonty saddle (evoke R? it feels pretty good)
    crank bros stem / bars (iodine 3 stem and cobalt 3 bars I think, they were a gift)
    ergon grips, gray with black rubber

    It feels light as hell since putting that fork on. Hope its not too light up front.
    Yeah I only carry cans cause I'm a weight weenie.

    Just finished custom Niner One 9 build! Can't wait to get out and ride it. Only change was I have put a Rocket Ron on the back to replace the Ardent (2.4 seems a little extreme for the rear wheel)

    Prior fork was the 2012 KM fork (which I think was lighter than previous versions). The steerer on the on-one is 5-10 mm shorter (so not a lot) and the bike feels like its a full pound lighter when I pick it up. Listed weights are 1200 grams for the KM and 970 for the on-one, and I would be shocked if the difference was less than that 230 grams. But it feels like a bigger difference to me, to the point that I'm even wondering if they spec different length steer tubes from the factory. Haven't got this one out on the trail yet (hopefully tomorrow) but the steering is *much* quicker with the 47 mm offset - I really like that. And I get a little less vibration when stopping hard on pavement than I did with the old fork (to be fair, that one didn't chatter much at all under real world use, and I doubt the new one will either). When the new steel fork comes I will try to weigh the KM and this fork side by side to give you a better idea.

    Genesis Fortitude Adventure 29er SS

    So my home-brewed on-one ibred SS was stolen The "New" Post Your Singlespeed!-008-copy-copy-1024x768-.jpgbut was insured The insurers supplier didn't deal with on-one so they were not able to get me an exact replacement. After a fair amount of negotiation I settled for this build

    Genesis Fortitude Adventure frame (reynolds 725 heat treated), Halo Freedom 29er Wheels, Nobby Nics 2.2, raceface ride SS crankset, Hope headset, Elixir 3's, Easton EA finishing kit. Love it!!

    Decided to go with the Adventure rather than the SS frame as this is hub gear ready if i want a change in the future but i'll definitely be sticking with this set up for now. The inbred sold me on SS-ing. The Genesis has sold me on 29er SS-ing
