    Those kinked top tubes on those Misfit Fe frames scare the beejezus outta me.

    Wow, dude. Nice build for a Misfit. I'm just starting mine. It's going to be a similar build but with a standard AL frame and about 3 levels down on all the components.

    SLX cranks
    Time Alium pedals
    Reba
    Avid Juicy 3 brakes
    Sun Ringle Charger Expert wheels.
    etc...

    I've got a set of Mavic C29SSmax on my Niner Air 9 and LOVE them. Great wheels.

    Here is my recently built Voodoo Bokor 29, still trying to get the gearing where I want it but I'm having alot of fun on it. Only thing I dislike is spinning out on the flats, may need to try an 18t see how that goes on the hills.

    Build:
    Bokor 29 19"
    Truvativ Firex cranks 32t
    BBG bash
    Rockshox Reba Race
    Cane Creek S3
    Surly spacer kit and 20t cog
    Shimano XT wheelset
    Avid Elixir CR F-185 R-160
    Cheap flat pedals for cruising around- CB Eggbeaters for trails
    Specialized Captain Control front tire
    Specialized Fast Trak rear
    Rounded off by the cheapest cockpit I could find

    Sweet One Niner!

    Love the Niner,

    Thats very similar to my Air 9 Carbon setup. I'd love to trade with you for a few miles to see the difference my Carbon and RDO fork makes in the ride!

    Hopefully you'll be riding it soon!

    Love the color of the Niner but I have never been a fan of the angled down tube. Don't get me wrong, I completely understand why and agree with it but I just don't like that design as much. The bike does look good tho! As does the Cysco! Love Ti!

    I just want to know when Niner will come out with a Ti frame of their own.
    I'm thinking a T.I.T 9 (Titanium Is Tremendous).
    I no longer deserve a signature.

    Just curious, why didn't you go with the Stans Crest Wheelset and knock another 300+ grams off your build? Unless of course you happen to be a Clydesdale.

    I chose the Arch rims in case I wanted to switch the wheelset to a different bike. I didn't want to have to worry about them if I put them on a different bike and rode more aggressive.

    Will do. I know a couple people that have used it before and they really liked it. First impressions are good and it seems to be much more comfortable than it looks. The negatives I've heard are some of the web connections have broken but, we shall see...

    most of these bikes are 1spd drool. But that carbon bike is sweet.

    Hopefully I'll get my KM done this weekend, pics to follow, maybe a test ride if this warm 40 degree weather keeps up! *fingers crossed*

    Thanks Zas...I set out to build it up exactly how I wanted. It took some time to get all the parts together because of budget but, I like the result. Could have went lighter with the wheelset(DT Swiss, Crest)but, I wanted to be able to move the wheels to a more aggressive bikes if I decided to.

    S-S-Selma

    So, I first got into the SS world a year and a half ago. Got sold on a GF Rig that I found for cheap and got addicted. In short order, I picked up a Vassago Jabberwocky, fully tricked it out w/ Thomson this and that, Hopes laced to Arches, CK headset... beautiful rig. It really made me a stronger climber and I enjoyed it, but still kept a FS in the stable. In May, we had our second kiddo and I knew that I'd be doing little riding over the summer and my fitness would lag, making the SS even harder to ride. I couldn't justify letting the Jabber collect dust, so I let her go.

    Now, many months later, I've turned 40, we have our legs back underneath us with the kiddos and the 2012 season is on the horizon. I've signed up for a few big rides with lots of climbing and wanted an SS back in the mix to help with training, thus...

    My new-to-me Salsa Selma. Have only had her on two rides, but love the feel of this frame. Planning to try her out with a Niner fork later this spring (local shop will actually let me demo a fork- so cool).

    That, my friends, is a 23T. I'm a huge weenie, I admit, but I have fun. Even with a 32/23, I'm huffing and puffing on some of my backyard trails on the Front Range of CO- many climb 900-1000' out of the gate with little respite. I was able to whittle myself down to a 21t on the Jabber last year and imagine I'll get back there this year as well, but I gotta start somewhere that doesn't kill my already torn up knees

    Well Colorado is a different animal.

    I consider to be in shape, but one week out there last summer on my 1x9 HT and I felt like an asthmatic old man. Sure some of that is that I wasn't used to the altitude, but still damn. The climbs out there can be brutal. Here in MI we have brutal climbs like CO, but they are half of the length. The ones in CO keep going and seem to have no end in sight sometimes.

    Yep, You nailed it Zaskar. I was so going to go this route but was not sure what the hell I was going to do about chain tension! I am very impressed and yes, drooling a tad! It looks just like something I would build! Awesome build!

    I on the other hand was tinkering around with my other SS today. I went for a ride yesterday and the front brake lever just felt out of wack. Turns out the quick release button had worn a goove in the lever body thus leaving it in the released position. So I was thinking I was finally going to have to put some money into this POS...instead I pulled out an old carbon flat bar that was too narrow for my 29, grabbed my old levers off my BB7 set up and went to work. As a result, I have what now actually feels more comfy to ride and looks a little different...but it works and it cost me nothing.

    I also ran over to my buddies shop and picked up a used 18t freewheel that he had for $5. So my gearing is a little nicer to me now. Running a 46x18 now. It was a 46x16 which was a tad challenging to say the least.

    Thank you so much...

    Here is mine. Sort of a work in progress. 2009 Hardrock. I was inspired by Sasquatch on the tensioner!

    I'm glad you like my tensioner! I took a v-brake arm and cut off all the bits that you don't need like the slot for the brake pad, and the notch for the brake spring. Then I drilled out the hole to fit a derailleur hanger bolt (I've actually updated it to a much better design, I'll post pics soon) and I used the existing hole that clamps the brake cable to run a long bolt with spacers and a jockey wheel. The update that I made was that I actually used a derailluer bolt that threads right into the hanger so that a 5mm hex key will take off/loosen/or tighten the tensioner

    Yeah, dude.....bloody brilliant! And, so timely and convenient. I was trying to find/figure a way for chain tension on my old GT mtn bike SS convert. I hated the thought of throwing a derailleur on or dumping much more cash on it than I already have in the name of a Singleator or such. Just so happens I have some junk Tektro V's that would make outstanding donors for a tensioner. Plus, several orphaned jockey wheels from busted derailleurs.

    So, yeah....when you get around to it with your updated pics (which I hope will be soon...), if you wouldn't mind, please give some specific details.....like the length of bolt/spacer and where you sourced the needed hardware. Pretty sure Lowes or Home Depot, or some such, will have whatever, but it's always nice knowing exactly what to look for when getting there.....if you know what I mean.

    BTW, I love the color of the brown. Did you paint yourself? Aluminum frame? Was it necessary to strip the paint entirely and/or did you have to use an etching primer or something? I really want to repaint the GT. It's aluminum and the paint's been abused pretty good for the past 18 years...lol!
