I have had so much fun on this bike that I have decided to leave it in SS form and ride it as is.
    This is my second steel frame, my first SS trail worthy build and first 29er.
    Good times.
    What frame is it? Funny, we have the exact same wheel set-up. WTB i23 with WTB Weirwolf. I must say, I was a little disappointed that the 2.5 was not as big as I had imagined.

    Guess I did leave that info out, huh.

    It is a 2012 Kona Honzo. The frame won't house anything larger than a 2.4, I believe, so I went with the 2.3 WW. I am really liking the i23 wheels and paired with the TCS tires made it so easy to go tubeless.

    The colour is from a Jeep wrangler with sherman williams 2 pack laquer over it(I spray cars at work).Powder coating is all ways better though as it is more chip resistant and holds it's gloss longer.What I done was a quick respray to breathe new life into an old frame Name:  frame.JPG

    I've got that same frame, with the Voodoo zombie 500 fork, and am thinking about the same setup... though I'm leaning towards a "regular" fat front so the geometry won't slack as much as the knard will...

    Nice bike!

    How about Ti? Seven makes nice Ti bars for fairly cheap ($150).

    Oh, go Wolfpack!

    Hi Guys
    Have posted my 1X1 but not sure of my Pugs.
    Here it is anyway, running 36/18 or 2:1 similar to the 1X1 which is 32/16. Love it

    Pugsley

    Hi all
    I have posted my 1X1 before but not sure about my Pugsley.
    Love this as much as my 1X1. Running the same gearing at 32/16 and basically setup the same but rides quite different. Each has its place.
    thought I'd share

    They run a shim but it's still clean, if I had a black stem it would be very clean.

    Made in Portland, great CS and the bar is very comfortable.

    SS-ing my steel Jones for a while .. sometimes it feels better than the ti frame as a SS, stiffer and more direct. Simpler, like a SS should be.
