    Thanks. Shock is a-okay. White Brothers custom made it for me with 63mm of travel as that matched the original fork, a 1996 Rock Shox Judy.

    Hey nice rhygin. Can you post a picture or two of your if deluxe 650b? I am curious how much space there is in the chainstays. I don't currently have a wheel, and I don't want to buy one if it isn't going to work...

    Actually, it's a 1994.

    Long story, go here.

    Short story, I wanted to run disc brakes, be able to utilize 26" & 650B and run it as either a single speed or geared. That required lopping the seat and chain stays off. As always, Circle A did a fantastic job.

    Thanks. Well, my IF Deluxe was custom ordered in 2009 so I don't know how beneficial it would be. Anyway, that being said, I was able to use the Pacenti Neo Moto 2.3, though the Schwalbe Racing Ralph 2.25 left a bit more breathing room. The chain stays are 17", if that helps. If you're in the Boston area, feel free to swing by to test fit the wheel. Here's the IF Deluxe:

    Just sold my 2008 GF Rig. Last piece of the puzzle is to sell a TT bike I haven't ridden in 2 years, then I upgrade, big time.

    XL. I was on the edge of XL and L. I've had a bike that's too small for me before, so I didn't want to risk it again, so I went for the larger frame, and put a shorter stem on it, and it fits perfectly!

    Thanks a lot, I haven't seen that size in person and the steeper headtube angle of the smaller sizes just wasn't appealing to me, but I think I would be in an xl also if I got one.... Nice looking bike

    Cheers.

    Go for it! If you've been reading reviews about the frame, all of them are spot on! And Peter from Misfit Psycles is very helpful, I bought my frame about 18 months ago, and I still email him asking questions, and he always answers.

    Looks good thanks for sharing. My frame has a tighter rear end. Going to go with a 26 in back for now.

    Meet lil' red, she's filled with hope. I still have a couple things to change but she is a blast. Still need to get around to trimming my brake lines.

    Work in Process Sawyer/Gates SS

    I have renewed my mountain biking passion from 15 years ago. This bike caught my eye and it has all day comfort and great trail manners. Not the lightest steed ever but neither am I. I love the belt drive. This thing is absolutely silent. I believe the smaller diameter tubes help with this as well.
    I recently added the Niner Carbon fork. It really eats
    Up the smaller bumps. The tubeless Racing Ralph's at 28 psi do the rest.

    I had the shop put on the brakes and they weren't sure what cockpit setup I would end up having so they left them long, way long. I think I have it dialed in so it's time to trim it up. The routing is pretty standard for the niner fork.

    On One Inbred SS 26er

    Nothing fancy but love it! Got the frame 2nd hand and added the rest mostly from bits I already had plus a few online bargains. Maiden voyage today and loved it. SS - I get it! The other bike will now hibernate and I'll review in the spring

    I am currently looking at the exotic forks. I was wondering what if the axle to crown on your fork is 425mm or 445mm?

    Misfit Dissent

    This is not only my first SS but its my first 29er. I put about 50 miles on it last week and cannnot be happier. Shes weighing in at around 23 lbs with the now tubeless setup. Looks like my Ragley is going to be seeing a lot less riding time.

    My uphill bike.

    I've just change frame few weeks ago and I really love this one. I am very lucky to have the magic gearing 32x18 - perfect tight with new chain.

    It wasn't tensioned much at all in that pic! But yeah, Philcentric and a half-link at 32/20 and it's perfect now. Went for another long ride today, and wow I love this bike.

    Got juiced!

    Lovin' it so far. Much nimbler handling and a more compliant ride than the Raleigh XXIX I had. And the color is growin' on me!







    Please excuse the extra length of brake line. Getting that trimmed soon...

    Where do you ride?

    Might want to consider changing the fork to a Salsa Cromoto for better minor bump absorption.

    Converted to a fixed gear just for the hell of it. Finally cleared Hell Hill on this thing after so many tries. Few weeks ago when the sun was out.

    "Cross" posting from the cyclocross forum. I recently got this bike back from my sis. I didn't want it set up as another road bike anymore, plus, I have a friend who was wanting to try mtb'ing but didn't want to invest in a ride.

    Took 'im out to my usual singletrack and honestly did a lot better than I was expecting. Terrible caliper brakes, and the gearing is a bit too high, but again I cleared a LOT more than I thought I was going to (38x17). The skinnier/bigger front wheel definitely almost threw me a couple times but luckily I didn't eat it.

    In other words, a total f'ing blast.

    Might I propose a Vassago subforum no that they are alive again. And should the first thread be Jabbers in the Wild?

    Well, they are actually alive again!!! The site is up and running and you can actually order stuff!

    As for the thread, there used to be a Jabber thread I thought.

    I couldn't resist taking the picture when I came up on an open field along the trail. It was a full moon and I wish I had a real camera with me that night instead of my blackberry but it turned out ok I guess.

    Nice, what model is that? Just recently started to research a SS DJ bike, to complement my Jabber. Interested to hear more about it.

    This was my first SS that I built up before moving on to the Jabberwocky, a '96 Hoo Koo. Posted a while back in this thread but made some changes and now she serves as an around town gravel grinder.

    @goldenaustin Hi there my bike is a Hansomedog frame 16'' I believe it was made by kenisis for All terrain cycles.I brought it on ebay for £5 and the forks are 120mm mantou axel comps also 2nd hand on ebay for £30 .I built it just to save my geared bike from the English winter and love it so much it gets ridden more.

    saddle: charge spoon

    chain ring: on one stainless steel 32 tooth

    gusset chain tensioner

    nukeproof warhead seat post

    continental speed king 2.1 tyres

    think it weighs about 23 pounds so not light but I could'nt live with rigid forks as they were killing my wrists and shoulders on longer rides

    My first SS grew from this:

    1994(ish) Mongoose


    To this:



    Newer Rocky Moutain Vertex frame w/ Easton XC SS wheels w/ BB7's and Fox Float. After loving the budget build Mongoose I had to build something a little newer and better. I love riding this bike!

    I ride in West Java Indonesia.
    I am still looking for steel fork with 410-420mm axle-crown length, not confidence with this one for off-road LOL.

    I have a 440mm rigid fork from Scott Voltage, I put it on my Off-road bike. Well it's a DJ frame so the geometry is fine with that fork and I use it for XC race and uphill.

    The New ONE 9

    Posted this last year, but now it has a nice Carbon Niner fork along with a 2.35 Scwhalbe RR to help smooth things out (so practically a new bike). Took it out for a ~30 miles w/ ~5000 feet of climbing, and it performed wonderfully and I felt good afterward.
    For anyone who cares, this thing weighs ~19.5 lbs (just an estimate based on the additions/subtractions) but who cares! It rides great, climbs great, and I am no speedster anyway so I don't get too rattled.

    Just after the build

    I made some changes to my '09 Unit. I swapped the risers for a Fleegle Pro bar (along with a stem with a little more rise), swapped the Karate Monkey fork for a Kona P2, and a Crossmark replaced the worn-out Ignitor on the back.

    Overall, they were all good changes. The new Crossmark climbs far better than a 50%-worn Ignitor, and the extra sweep on the bars is nice. As far as the forks go, there isn't much difference, but the P2 seems to 'buzz' a bit less on big hits.
