    I'll play. It took me 3 days to work through this thread.

    Here is a pic before I painted the fork and when the bike was clean..

    The "New" Post Your Singlespeed!-mtb-019.jpg

    More recent views fork painted and I swapped the front wheel for a Hope Flow that was on my Jet and now I have Flows front and back on this bike. And I wasn't going to clean it to take pictures for this.

    I don't think I need to send a build list since in a SS it is easy to see every part in the pictures. That is a Terry Fly saddle by the way in case you can't make it out. The one in the first picture I was a Fizik Tri (I know, but it was the most comfy ever on a MTB-go figure) but I cracked the seat pan in half about a month ago. Also, that is a powder coated pin striped Sir9 if you can't tell.

    Know anybody that wants to buy a Jet? I barely ride it any more.

    I am currently running 32x20 and clearing almost everything around here. I am planning on putting a 17and a 19 on the rear and adding a 34 in front in place of the bash. Then I will run 32x19 in the woods and can swap to a 34x17 in a minute for a run into town on the roads. This will also slightly lighten my bike since the 34 I bought only weighs 37 grams.. less than the bash. And the 17 and 19 Niner cogs on the way are less than the steel Surley 20 that I currently have. It weighs a little over 22 with pedals, wireless speedometer/cadence and light mount. I run tubeless 19 psi front and 24 psi rear. I run the WW all year in the front and Ignitor in the rear in the wet months and Aspen rear in the Summer. I weigh 170ish. I can't say enough about that Cannondale Flash 29er seatpost. I had a Syntace P6 before and this post just totally smooths out the ride.

    thanks. yea I thought about that too, but may instead order a silver 33 or 34T ring. A bit of understated bling hehe.

    Frame needs a fresh coat of paint as the powdercoat didn't quite get into some of the nooks and crannies in the cable guides. So there's a bit of rust there.

    may change color to a metallic black with orange flake, with silver decals....still on the fence as to the color actually!

    Slackest ST ever? No.
    ... but it is unusual. I think there's some intentional vertical flex going on there. Double top tube?

    I have about 50 miles on my Stouts, which have great grip for the "dusty" conditions of the PNW. Nice ride.

    Yeah, slight sarcasm there! More drippy than dusty at the moment
    The Stout is great on the front, in the current conditions I pair it up with a Trailraker on the back.

    On One Inbred

    Here is my Singlespeed. It's a real pleasure to ride it.
    The handlebar is a bit weird but the shape is perfect for a singlespeed, very comfortable.
    The Surly chaintug is expensive but it really worth it. The OnOne's one is crap.

    Trek 69'er SS

    I've posted pics of this bike before, but I've done a few upgrades since then. I almost sold the bike a year ago, but instead made it my experimental bike to feed my addiction for constant tinkering.

    1998 Trek 7000
    34x19 Magic gear (requires half link and slightly worn chain)
    ghetto tubeless tires
    69'er - used the fork from a cyclocross bike (barely fits the Bontrager Jones XR 2.2 tire)
    weight as pictured 20.75 lbs

    The AC with the cyclocross fork is 415mm and is actually pretty close to stock. This fork has been a proof of concept and I'm probably going to trade it out for something more like 425mm to gain a little more tire clearance and slacken the steering slightly.

    This is a super fun project bike and I'm lovin' it.

    2nd Zaskar

    I sold this one…


    And build up another Zaskar! Frame itself is 4lb 1oz, 6061 T-6 heat treated aluminum, was made in Huntington Beach, CA in Jan 1995. No retro this time:

    • 2010 Fox F100 shortened to 80mm with 15QR front, Cane Creek S-3 headset, generic stem with HellsBent raiser bar with bar ends
    • Hydro brakes are Shimano m486 (waiting for replacements for leaky diaphragm from Shimano) with A2Z adaptor.
    • Transmission is Shimano m750 Hollowtech II XT crankset, Surly 32T rings with Surly 18T cog on WTB LaserDisc Lite wheelset on IRC Mythos Kevlar (dirt cheap crap), keeping my eyes on TWB aluminum freehub. And highly modded Forte SS hanger tensioner.


    Next year’s upgrades plans include XT m770 hydros, m960 crankset, Blackspire ring, and better rubbers.

    i was told horizontal lines were slimming.

    but srsly, that bike cost me 70 dollars when i was 17, i've grown a little since then and it's always been too small. so when the fork came, i fitted until i was comfy and ended up just not cutting at all. i don't notice any flex when riding, but you can definitely feel it when you lean on the bars [off the trail].

    I'd recommend removing a few spacers and installing a riser bar, for safety.

    This is my old Raleigh Max i bought last year for Ł50 converted it to single speed for about another Ł50, really enjoy riding it recently have spent some more on it to enable me to fit a disc brake.

    I have fitted an exotic aluminium fork new bars and stem and a front disc brake and wheel
    The wheels dont match but this bike is a work in progress and has been built on the cheap

    Ahh man- that pic definitely brought back memories... I had a used 830 given to me outfitted with those insane canti's and sugino cranks / bio-pace chain rings. It was my first xc race bike back in 93 at the age of 13. I ended up putting a softride stem on the thing sometime in 95 and then attempted my first downhill race. On my second run that day I slammed into a tree skidding into a turn and it bent the rear chain stay (tweaking the wheel to a slight angle). I sure miss that bike.

    No its an 80mm fork. its just the way they are made that makes them look bigger. I normally ride it rigid, but I had the fork laying around. I keep saying I'm going to upgrade that frame, but when it comes time to put the money out I just can't do it.

    Thanks. The decals serve two purposes: First as response to all my buddies who always insist I should get a 29er (why, when I love my 26er?). Second, I cannot afford white rims at the moment for my new frame, so it adds some personality to the wheelset. FWIW the rear Vuelta (not shown) looks just like the front...the wtb laserdisc single-duty is my beater, training rim that I use for training and to annoy my 29er riding buddies.
    I no longer deserve a signature.
