    Really liking the all pinked out look. Awesome wheels.
    No compromise.

    Just a 13.5" Trek

    I like the geometry, it's great for aggresive riding.
    Currently 32x18 which is too heavy for me but I will change to 32x20 as soon as I get the cog.

    I am gonna change to wider bar soon and the tires 2.40 front 2.25 rear.

    How do you like those CST Cambers? I have entertained the thought of getting them but there arent many reviews of them out there.

    Actually I use camber just for on-road and a little bit off-road since it's only 2.10 and doesn't have good grip for mud/wet terrain.

    I am not gonna recommend you this tire, the thread wear off fast.

    As soon I have bigger inner tube I'll change to cheyene 2.40 front and caballero 2.25 rear, my terrain is mostly dry sharp rocks. This two combo is nice since it's also light on asphalt road.

    have about 3 rides to date. My only complaint is that it is not as squishy as a steel fork. But tracks well and I like the offset.

    I bought this cheaply from CL as a first SS and fell in love with the bike and SS in general.

    As i can't afford to build a 29er all in one go I plan to start from the front and work back:

    1. Carbon 9er fork on order through LBS
    2. looking for 29er front wheel on ebay/CL

    I'll ride it 69 for a bit while I:

    3. do a bit of gradual "carbonsing" all over, punctuated with some Ti nuts and bolts

    unfortunately:

    4. buying a frame is a long way off. perhaps 2nd hand moots might be affordable by then!
    5. 29er back wheel to sign and seal it.


    then I can take all of my current parts and put them back together again to use as a back up.

    It'll take me a few yearsmind you...

    She's a Lurcher.

    Bred in England/Ireland for hunting Hares(jack-rabbit) and Deer by crossing sighthounds and other working dogs

    This one was bred in KY from Imported stock. Mostly Deerhound, Greyhound and Collie.

    Okay, I'll join in. My first single speed (sold my 575 to do this). Can't believe how much fun I'm having, just wonder why it took me so long to make the move.

    18.5lbs as pictured. Full on race machine! Tough, too, as during a race this weekend I went down pretty hard at 17.9mph according to my Garmin. Stem got twisted around ~20 degrees, but nary a wobble in the front wheel. Then tonight a good size stick jumped off the trail and lodged in the rear wheel locking it up. It bent a spoke pretty good. Already accumulating battle scars.

    penny farthing and chapacubra

    Played around and put an American Classic 29" Disc into an old Surly instigator fork.

    F-ing love it. Bowls over anything and not missing the nasty, cheap, heavy Marzorcchi one bit. Climbs like you wouldn't beleive up twisty, rooty single track.

    The poor "chapacubra" can't keep up any more and I love this thing so much i took it out twice today!

    Now looking for a similar sized fork as the surly but with a bit more give and less weight.

    Also have Noir Flat bar on order and just bought Ergon KORK grips.
