    I ended up using the X1 off my Epic, and I intended to be 32/16, but had to go down to a 30t chainring and remove the preload adjuster to make it all fit.

    So its set up 30/16 now, and rides like a dream.

    You ony have to go to the Dr if you have the even more redundant "fully rigid" for more than 4 hours.

    When all the blood rushes down you start saying "Forks" to describe a single item on your bike.

    Single speed, dropper post, 785mm bars, 50mm stem, tubeless. This bike is serious fun. 32/20 gearing, I was worried I'd be walking up hills at our local trails but so far so good. Killer workout but this bike rips.

    19.5" frame. Could be lighter but I really like dropper posts and had this one not being used so I threw it on. This bike is awesome. It's like having a 1 inch full suspension bike without sacrificing any efficiency, plus monster traction.

    My converted SS

    My Mongoose HT 29er converted recently to SS. 32T Raceface NW, 19T Niner Cogalicious, 780 Niner alloy bars and 50mm stem. I thought the tensioner would give me issues on climbs or powering up short, steep hills but so far no slip. If I could only say the same for myself.

    A note about these GearClamps: they have lateral movement so I got rid of them. I don't think it's good for the hub or cog to be moving around like that?

    Been scouring the world for this frame. You did a near perfect build. Let me know if you ever decide to sell.

    Had to ask a shop to order it for me.

    I got a flat spot on my rear rim. Now I'm waiting for it to explode so I have an excuse to get a Chris King wheelset. Which would cost nearly as much as the entire bike to begin with, ha!

    Also next on the list would be a Thomson Elite Masterpiece seatpost and XTR pedals.

    Snuck in a quick ride on my (new to me) Scandal at Thunderbird Park in Phoenix.


    Took the pic about 30 minutes before my rear tire (Race King) died a horrible death with a thumb-sized hole in the sidewall. Clearly I need to re-train my brain for HT line selection after riding a 5" FS bike with Monster trail tires (DHRs and Gomas) on it for the last few years.

    I'm still getting it all sorted but loving it so far.

    Scored an old 97 ibis mojo and threw a Kona P2 fork on it. It's set up 32:18 with conti mountain king 2.4's just a shimano parilax hub on the back and a no name sealed hub on the front. Rides really nice except for the fork. Will be throwing a soma fab cromo mountain fork on there.

    08 or 09 Haro Mary SS steel frame, bought it for fun but have upgraded stem, bars, chainring, cogs, pedals, brakes, fork. I keep saying I want a new frame but I love this thing.

    I started SSing on a Mary in '07, upgraded parts on it over the next 2-3 years, and finally parted with it after the top of the seat tube cracked (probably my fault). I loved that bike! I've owned a bunch of SS frames since then, but still think the Mary is great. And the EBB is soooo easy to adjust.

    Wow, what a fun bike! I've been trying to talk myself out of a Stache for almost a year. Have you had it long? Have you ridden in it any other configuration? Very versatile 29er, 29+ or 27.5+ from what they say...it's got me curious.

    Only just finished building it and ridden only once but the 29+ wheels are definitely fun. I sit up high especially with the front gravity Vidar tire. Learning that momentum and flow are key. Don't have a 27.5 wheelset yet so can't comment on that.

    cheers!

    Yeah, built specifically for wet weather commutes, need to get an AssSaver for it.

    Ive got Cannondale Capo for regular commutes running 82GI, Ragley Blue Pig for the trails.

    Hi-

    Can you share some details on how you did your SS conversion (parts needed, any difficulties encountered, etc.)? I have a stock Stache 9 29+ that I'd like to convert.

    Thanks,
    Sean

    I've been riding this bike exclusively for a month or so. Around town, pulling the kid trailer, mtb. It's been great. And I've got less than $1000 invested. The jones bars and brooks tried to mess that up but I found them both used.

    Sold my superfly ss to build this:


    Wheelset on loan from my Monocog until I scrape a little more money together for a lighter build to help offset the tire bulk. Thinking the 30mm internal Easton hoops and a regular Hope Pro4 as opposed to the trials/ss on there now.

    Not the best picture but a ton of fun. My body is slowly adapting to SS and I love the rhythm of riding without gears or suspension more than anything I think- a really direct and engaging ride.

    Built it to take a few knocks while travelling and not see a great deal of maintenance so it is on the robust rather than light side (eg heavy alu bars, fairly heavy tyres, etc). Pretty much bang on 19lbs ready to ride with Garmin etc.

    The rear derailleur works really well as a tensioner though its really big and ugly. Any recommendation for a chain tensioner I could get?

    Thanks!

    lol! I should have explained, it's a bit of photoshop trickery; it's the same wheel with a 3" Vee Trax Fatty on it in two different pics spliced together.

    I'm thinking Hopes and either Blunts or MK3s for the final build.

    There's a few out there. I use a Yess ETR-D. But there is also some by Rohloff, Paul's, an Alfine could work.

    Yes coaster brake...not very effective but for a former dirt bike/bmx rider is perfect...(used to have no brakes at all)

    Makes sense! The first mountain bikes used coaster brakes too apparently

    My old 2007 SJ Comp with the sliding rear dropouts

    I just converted this bike to full rigid, harder gear is coming in this week as well. Should be a little more competitive at the short track races in the ss category.
    (for some reason it is uploading upsidedown)

    Not a new bike...but it is newly converted. Been threatening to do it for a while...finally got it done. Couple short rides so far and it's pretty nice. Nothing on dirt yet though. That's coming soon. I wanted to do some shake down rides before traveling to the trails. So far, so good....

    Cotic Solaris SS

    The "New" Post Your Singlespeed!-solaris-ss.jpg

    Got the Solaris converted and ditched the gearz. Never realised how much I missed SS....
    Using it for all-round trail riding and the occasional 20km commute into work a couple times a week.

    Decided to go a different direction. Going to build new wheels for my geared 26" and put the old wheels on the SASS. Just need to get some bake adapters and a set of SS spacers for the hub. Here's a little peek.

    You go on, baked adapters change the ride fo shizzle.

    Like the BMX bar, inspired by the PK Ripper?
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    lol! I'm not even going to fix that one.

    After it hit me that I'll have a wheelset for the SASS after building new wheels for the Camber, I had to throw them on the SASS while I wait. I had a feeling the SASS would be too XC for my tastes and sure enough I felt way too far forward and low with a 90mm stem and flat bar.

    I just happened to look over at my old BMX cruiser, and well, you can see what happened next. I've only pedaled around out font of the house and the backyard so far. It actually feels pretty derned good for what it is. I'm going to do a proper build up with the BMX bars and find out how it does on the trails, should be fun!

    Not my bike or picture, but I found this a while back and liked the look. I may someday do this, when my back can't take it anymore, but like the XC geo for the moment.
