    First bike build: a brand new Santa Cruz Highball 29er!

    OK, I've been mountain biking for many years now... but this new bike constitutes many extremely fun "firsts" for me: first complete build up from frame/parts; first 29er; first dedicated single speed frame (I'm coming from many years on a single speed 'conversion' 26er); and first new bike in over 10 years.

    I couldn't be happier so far. Here are some pics before she touched dirt for the first time:

    No more chain tensioner for me.
    Highlights from building it were installing the crank -- a new task for me (and surprising easy); and discovering what 'tight spots' in the drive train mean (my chain ring wasn't perfectly centered). Any, she feels ... amazing. Whoo hoo!

    First build: a new Santa Cruz Highball SS 29er

    Ok, Iíve been mt. biking for many years Ė I started well before í03, but thatís when I got much more into it. This is first time Iíve built a bike, from the frame up. (Other firsts: first dedicated SS frame, with no tensioner; first 29er; first new bike in over 10 years!) I just finished, it was so. Much. FUN. And even better to ride.

    Highlights from the building process included installing bottom bracket for the first time, and discovering what 'tight spots' are in the drive train (my chain ring wasn't perfectly centered around the bolts, but it's fine now, thank you Sheldon Brown). Can't wait to tear it up this weekend.

    Looks nice. I also have the Highball and love the dropouts for tensioning the chain. My post is just up the page a bit. Great looking bike

    (and by finally I mean, two years ago...)

    I am deeply wounded by Bianchi no longer makin bikes like this. And also by how they seem to be using Celeste less and less on the newer stuff.

    I had a BaSS in the past, it was great. Although the Cuss is a frame size bigger (fitting me better) it weighs in about the same, even with stock bars, stem, crank and wheels. (where my BaSS was built up a little).
    Reading about the series the U series CUSS, GUSS, WUSS PUSS use easton ultralight tubing(muss being steel though?) These are great bikes, I will always have one in my arsenal. I want to build a 26" urban SS for crusin and leave the san jose to utility.

    The MUSS is chromo-lite double butted tubing. There is another with Dedacciai tubing as well, not remembering the exact naming scheme right now. Agreed, great bikes. I also am a little jealous of the classic bianchi celeste green. Happy rollin'
    No fuss with the MUSS

    How do you like the half fat as an SS? Did you have to gear down at all because of more rolling resistance?

    Went down from a 32T to 30T front - it really sucks on flats and paved roads - you need to keep pedaling just to keep moving forward, and obviously I easily spin out.

    On trails and singletrack, different story - the front has some crazy traction specially in muddy trails. Floatation over small rocks is awesome, it just gobbles it up. The 29+ rear helps with the additional grip and extra cush, without sacrificing acceleration and roll resistance. Love this setup, my geared hardtail no longer gets some love...

    Bought my first single speed 29er today - a 2012 Redline Monocog. Haven't had that much fun on a bike since I was a kid. Gotta love the no-nonsense a single speed bike delivers.
