    GT Peace 26er

    I've been riding a 29er SS for sometime now, and figured I'd try out a 26" SS when I found this Peace locally for dirt cheap. Took it out for the first real test along my normal climb/route and man was that tougher than I thought it was going to be. My 29er gearing is 32x20, so figured 32x18 was about the same on 26", but climbing was definitely more challenging. Of course there's a lot of other variables, like geometry, tires, etc. After that first real ride on it, it certainly doesn't dethrone my Jabber, but descending was more fun than I expected, given the smaller hoops.

    Not a very good pic but you get the general idea.

    It's pretty much a "bits n pieces" bike i cobbled together as a 2nd winter bike. Only new parts were the DMR chain tensioner and the chain. It's a 32t XT middle ring up front and a 16t out back (i think). All the parts i had spare (frame, Thompson seatpost and stem, Hayes Stroker Carbons, XT wheelset) or acquired from a mate on the cheap (carbon rigids, Fast Traks, Deore crank and Spesh seat).

    Actually rides like a dream - i'm very impressed but too much of a ***** to convert my main ride to singlespeed

    Picture Update

    I know I have posted this bike before. This is an updated picture featuring my new magic gear combo, I change the stock 32 tooth out for a Raceface 33 tooth chainring and it made all the difference. So goodbye to the need for a tensioner.
    Before

    With new gear combo.

    Some updates to the Bullseye I got off CL last spring: Just got some Elixir 3s on it and some take-off Kona bars off ebay. Wheels are from another bike as is the stem. Still a tank, though.

    As an aside, bleeding brakes in the kitchen is not ideal. The cats were fantastic helpers, though.

    '12 Flash Carbon 29er SS

    '12 Flash Carbon 29er converted to single speed. Using 120bcd 37t chainring and 23t cog allowed me to use my existing XX BB30 crankset. First tried YESS ETR-V but it wouldn't work due to interference with tiny bolts on the dropout. Settled for a Surly Singleator:



    Then lo and behold today the guys at Salvagetti removed the Singleator and a few links, and Presto! Magic Gear Ratio! Happy to be on a "true" singlespeed now.



    Now gotta build up those Rabbit Holes...

    You may already know this, but you could slap an Eccentric on that bad boy and have many different gear combos to choose from (and be able to tighten up a chain when needed).
    BEER Components » Eccentric Information
    Still, nice work with the magic gear.
    I no longer deserve a signature.

    I looked at doing this to a Flash carbon a couple of years ago but their *may* be a problem.

    While the Flash is BB30 the circlips in the BB30 standard that hold the bearings in place on a carbon Flash are molded into the BB shell and cannot be removed.

    In order to fit the Beer eccentric it would *probably* require removing the material from inside the BB shell.

    I say *may* and *probably* because the while I looked at the published dimensions of the Beer I never had one at hand to test fit. I do know from looking at drawings it was going to be very close....

    I was pissed at Cannondale. I bought the frame with the intent to SS it but then found out that they hadn't truly followed the BB30 standard on the carbon frame (which specifies a removable circlip).

    2006 Redline Monocog

    Picked this up from a guy on CL last night. First mountain bike. First SS...

    I really don't know much about any of this stuff, but it has:
    Bontrager XDX Tires - Bontrager Race Modified 620 Bar - Salsa Stem - Soma Hishou Saddle - Cane Creek S-1 Headset and... I think everything else is stock. Very pleased with it! I rode a Trek (geared) road bike before this.

    Yea, Cannondale should remove Cannondale's right to refer to it as BB30 since it does not conform to the standard.

    I'm in the market for a rigid fork either niner, bontrager carbon, or white brothers. Anyone have any insight on which is better fork? I.E. quality, fit and finish, or weight?

    I'm guilty of sometimes putting form over function, so when I choose a fork, the frame type/shape will dictate the fork options for me. I'll pair a steel frame with a steel fork or a WB carbon as they tend to match the narrow tubes of the frame. If the frame is carbon, scandium, aluminum that's oversized, hydroformed,, tapered head tube, etc. I'd consider some of the carbon fork options, like the Niner or if you want something more subtle, the Whiskey Parts carbon. There's tons of info and feedback on ride quality if you search, but the brands I mentioned tend to be the more popular choices. I like the quality of the Niner over the WB, but I've learned through my own trials that my preference is steel, and right now, I'm loving the Vassago Odis on my Jabber.

    I am sure you could sell those cranks for a pretty penny and have cash left over after a purchase of a BEER EBB and a standard crank. I just put a Beer on my Cannondale Alloy 1 and it's pretty boss and allows so many more future options.

    In order to fit the Beer eccentric it would *probably* require removing the material from inside the BB shell.

    I say *may* and *probably* because the while I looked at the published dimensions of the Beer I never had one at hand to test fit. I do know from looking at drawings it was going to be very close....

    I was pissed at Cannondale. I bought the frame with the intent to SS it but then found out that they hadn't truly followed the BB30 standard on the carbon frame (which specifies a removable circlip).
    Beer updated and has a version that does fit with the clips now. My Alloy 1 has a beer ebb on it granted I do not have the clip issue though. It's a great piece of machinery and the Phil Wood bearings are buttery smooth.

    New wheels and a stem change on the analog, ztr arch ex on hope pro II front and surly fixed rear.... so now running fixed! and a 90mm stem, it's a challenge on the steeper rougher trails that's for sure! Got some maxxis Ikon 3c exo's coming in 2.2 too to help cushion things a bit more, will go tubeless with the new tyres.

    20ish? I haven't been able to weigh it yet. A brake upgrade to xtr's should drop nearly a pound.
    I got a 25 mile ride in on Sunday and its fast. I really like the stiffness from the thru axles.

    Got this bike on Craigslist two weeks ago. Just got the handlebars today - thanks Bike Whisperer!

    (Rear brake cable wasn't long enough for the new bars - will replace in the next day or two)

    I used the thickest material I could find at walmart. It looks really good up close as well. So far has held up to a couple hundred miles of abuse with no signs of wear. Not bad for a free torn up wtb sst seat and $3 of material.

    Some smartass gnome took a bunch of spare parts laying around and a frame leftover from being robbed of all it's XT/Avid parts/disc wheelset from a FS buildup when I wasn't looking and later I found this out in the garage..............

    Looks like you have a granny ring on there up front as well - is that obsolete or do you use it?!

    Yeah, there is an obsolete granny ring on there, I think its a 26 or 28, something like that. It might be a weird ride 26:18, dont think I'll be splitting my chain to try it I bought the Truvativ Blaze chainset cheap on sale because it fit the 100mm BB and also as it came with the 36 ring. It is a double chainset with a bashgaurd where the big ring would go, I originally thought I may put gears on it at some stage but after riding it on varying terrain I will stick with the singlespeed, after quite a few years of singlespeed only, its what I know and love.
    I will put a singlespeed specific chainring on now I know I'm happy with the 36:18 gearing.

    Nice pugs. There's nowhere near enough single fatties on here.

    Just thought I'd slap this on this thread as well! Got my new Monocog 29er about two weeks ago. After reading a few things about it, I figured I'd jump on it. Not a fan of the 2011 model color scheme but It'll be covered in mud soon enough anyway.
    Straight away I slapped some new things on her.
    Truvative Hussefelt riser bars, Oury's, Forte platform pedals, Loaded Amx stem and a brand new RockShox Recon Silver TK front fork.
    It came with bb5's on it, now I'm in the process of putting a set of Odyssey Mono-lever triggers on the bars.

    Let me know what you guys think! Opinions seem to be rather good on the Redline MC.. I'd like more input from you all.

    Thanks a lot, Satin titanium II from prismatic powders... It came out more gold than I was thinking initially, but I love it. Not a huge fan of silver bikes and this was a great comprimise.... Link to my build thread...

    Finally I got a Kona.
    The type is Fire Mountain I think it's 2010 but can't find it the official websites and one thing for sure this was sell at Kona distributor LBS.

    Just arrived today, I am planning to move all the component to this frame.
    Hopefully the geometry works fine with 410mm rigid fork.

    BTW if you guys have info about this frame Kona Fire Mountain please let me know.
    The geometry is obviously different with the one on the official websites.

    Thanks.
    Weird indeed, if I make it look flat it feels like tilt down but with this settings it looks tilt up but feel flat when seated LOL.

    No need setback the setting perfectly fit for me. I am 5'4" and glad bought this size 16" instead of size 14".

    I meant to positive rep you for the sweet photos but for some reason the neg rep was selected. I didn't realize until after I hit enter. I apologize. I tried to PM you but you don't accept them. I will make sure and pos rep you. Maybe some others can give also give you some love for the sweet ride.
