    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.
    All the contact points are within an inch of those on my 29" Yelli, so it should be a fun ride!

    I should go get some bake adapters for my BB7s today, lol!

    I've got a new one. Should be an '89 RockHopper.









    The dropouts aren't slotted all the way and there's a hole at the end. Perfect for fitting an ENO hub.
    Chainstays are 440mm and BB height somewhere around 290mm, now! That's a lot of fun

    Frame too small for you? Nice build, bullet proof.

    Yeah the surge geo is aggressive, it looks like it rips. The reason I say it is small is because of the seat positioning.

    Ros 9

    Bought a closeout Niner ROS 9 frame, thinking it would be a good foundation for a budget build. I already had a set of carbon wheels though, and it didn't feel right to put a bunch of cheap parts on the frame. In the end; I went a little over my intended budget

    Frame - Large Niner ROS 9
    Wheels - Roval Traverse SL Fattie (30mm internal, carbon)
    Cranks - XX1 with 32t direct mount
    Brakes - XTR Trail (180mm front, 160mm rear)
    Fork - Fox 34 Factory (120mm with Kabolt)
    Dropper - Fox Transfer Factory
    Saddle - Specialized Power Pro
    Stem - Thomson x4
    Bars - Thomson Carbon
    Pedals - XTR
    Grips - ESI (Temporary grips in pic)
    SS Kit - Surly
    Cog - Niner
    Chain - XTR 11spd
    Tires - Maxxis Forekaster 29x2.35 (Looks like I have clearance for 29+ and may give it a try)

    Weight - 26.04 pounds. Still need to swap grips, shorten bars, and maybe swap the stem, so it will be sub 26 when done. It's 7 pounds heavier than my other singlespeed, but the weight seems to help when the trail gets rough.

    What stem and bars are on your Rockhopper? Is th steerer tube 1 1/8"?

    I am asking because I am looking for some bars for my son's MTB and he wants either high riser or BMX type bars.

    One of the best upgrades for a SS is SS specific hubs.The wider flanged hub makes a less dished and much stronger wheel. Just a thought.

I commute about 18 km a day on it, take it on the trails with the long fireroad and trail climbs I have always ridden, and apart from steep twisty rocky singletrack I don't miss the lack of suspension at all. New to rigid steel single speed mtb and already I'm hooked!

    Question to you more experienced though, descending on hard corners, I hear and feel rotor on pads, something is flexing and it makes me feel a bit uncomfortable, like it is just not quite solid enough. Skewers are tight. Likely the wtb i 23 rims or the kona p2 fork? And is it a concern?

    But nothing to do with the type of flex he's getting.

    I would be interested to see the Ikon on the rabbit hole. Would be a nice lightweight race ready tire.

    Kona Explosif 2016. I bought it stock with 1x11 Shimano, but soon started experimenting with using just one gear. After a while I thought I should convert, so I did.

    Had already replaced the rear hub with a Hope 4 to get more POE, but if I knew then I'd go for a SS specific hub.
    Gearing is 34x20T which is perfect for the "gnarly XC" I ride here in Sweden. No problem at all keeping up with my buddies running FS bikes with lots of gears, ha!

    The "New" Post Your Singlespeed!-_dsc1636.jpg


    Would want to slam the saddle since I never sit on it (except for transportation to and from the trails), but the ferrules for the bottle holder screws interfere with the seat post. If I shorten the post it will be too short for needed "normal" height.

    Aw what the heck, I'll post it here too.
    Here's my chrome Mongoose ATB, converted to fixed gear urban cruiser.
    Not completely done yet, the left side pedal is crossthreaded in the crank arm and can't be removed.
    I'll be fitting a shorter crankset, new pedals, pedal straps, and a longer seat post before too long, but for now it's servicable.
    I also need a new chain, the one on there is a bit of a hodge podge of 3 different chains, but again it works good for now.

    Rubena Cityhopper V99 tires in Grey,
    48-16 gear ratio.
    New tektro canti brakes, stops hard!

    I actually have one that would fit, but I'd like to force myself to stand up. Also, I'd need more than 150 mm drop to get the saddle lower than it is now when I slam it.

    Plus, I want to keep the bike as clean and simple as possible. Got other bikes for when I need more versatility (on longer rides).

    Wait...did you add a strut brace thingee to the top/seat tube junction?

    And has the seat tube been bent? Or just an optical illusion? Looks like a seat tube from an El Mariachi.

    You got some voodoo going on here.

    Looks great.

    Yep Honzo not the Unit sorry! The Voodoo is kind of a rare bird at a full 500 A2C but it maintains the geo perfectly, stoked on the combo as that fork kind of fell in my lap and I built the bike because I had it haha

    I must admit to having never seen a lefty rigid fork before... pretty cool.

    It may be something for the fatty crowd in the winter if they're running the shock in the summer. Otherwise, why? Seems like a very niche product.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    I'm afraid that my fork is even more "rare" than cannondale rigid fork. The "Lame" is handmade in Italy by Caam Corse (J-EMM) for Gasventinove Bikes brand....

    "Fully rigid" isn't a thing.

    New Build

    Just built this up from the frame up for my wife to ride flat paths/for screwing around with.

    The "New" Post Your Singlespeed!-20160919_170434-2-.jpg

    Gravity SS 29er Frame (15") w/ Parts Bin/Craigslist Spec. Highlights


    • WTB Speed Disc All Mountain Wheels with Unbranded Hubs (SS Specific Rear)
    • Geax Mezcal 2.1 Folding Tires
    • Prowheel Square Taper Crankset w/ VP Components Bottom Bracket
    • Chromag Clocker 38T Chainring w/ 18T Rear Cog
    • Spank Oozy Bars
    • Titec Hellcat Women's Saddle
    • Sensus Grips
    • BB7 Front Brake w/ Avid Lever


    Still looking to make a few tweaks like adding single ring chain bolts so I can drop the bash guard, getting some nicer pedals and servicing the rear hub, but it's reasonably light (lighter than my old Monocog) and pretty smooth on city streets. Hoping to get this out for a ride on some of the easier trails around here to see how it handles.

    Got it a bit more than a week ago. It is a pre-production kona raijin, I think only difference is that it has a 31.6mm seat tube.

    I mixed parts with my old singlespeed before selling it.

    XT brakes, I9 hubs with arch rims, float 32 120mm. Crank is an fsa triple - feels stiff, I don't know what bottom bracket is in there. Truvativ noir seatpost, chromag ranger stem, Easton haven bars.

    One special thing to note, the saddle is a chromag trailmaster ltd. I thought the specialized phenom was good but this thing is fabulous - is like an old baseball glove. Is designed to allow lots of different sitting positions. Give it a try if you get a chance, is 300g and well worth the weight.

    Where the old jabberwocky scared me on the rough stuff (couldn't manual, long chainstay the rear wheel went over everything), this new one eggs me on. Feels like the rear is turning before the front. I've already beat a bunch of strava descending times I set on my fs bike, and wasn't really trying.

    Very stiff, climbing is excellent, I can control weight to hover front wheel just off the ground, max weight on rear tire.

    I am riding a 34x23 and its perfect for me and the trails I like to ride.

    Unlike the old bike that never geled with me - I am really really happy with this bike.

    What size tires? 2.4? It is nice look how it fills in and just clears your frame and fork.

    Thanks man. Its actually a 3.0 out front with a 2.3 out back. It really clears extremely well. I need to build up a wheel with a wider rim but it still works pretty good.

    Moment of truth at my local bike shop: my 20" raijin is 23#5oz.

    The "New" Post Your Singlespeed!-raijinweight_23_5.jpg

    Wow, tempting to do something, what with 22# within such easy reach. Pretty easily save 100g with a different seat, 50g with different grips...

    I've got the parts, maybe I'll give it a shot some time.

    But reality is that I usually ride with extra weight: a full 100oz camelback, tools, food, sweater, etc, and could stand to lose another 5-10 pounds from my belly!

    Fit, geometry, fork and tires are what matters to me.

    Well today was the day I converted to SS. Been itching to try it for a while and today I did it. Currently 32t x 17t with a surly cog on the back and a dmr tensioner as its a vertical dropout frame.

    So here it is my onone parkwood. It's so much fun.

    shame that on-one/planet-x doesn't have an up-to-date, ss-able frame at a reasonable price today.

    up-to-date ---> 1.5 headtube/650b/geo for 120-140mm forks
    ss-able ---> slot-dropout or interchangeable
    reasonably priced ---> like an evo2 or 650b

    ...and made from steel, of course.

    however, my faithfull 'bred on the train heading home after the latest ride:

    Soma makes the B-side, but it only takes up to a 120mm fork.

    Yeah the seat and stem could probably save you some weight and put you under 23lbs, but beyond that you're probably looking at spending big money to save a few grams. You could also throw ti or alu bolts where ever possible...
    or if you want to take it to the extreme trim some things like your seatpost.

    Aluminum Gnarvester 29+ with WTB Ranger 3.0 tires.

    Posted this bike on the Gnarvester thread, but hey, it's a SS, so here it is. Built up with carefully selected parts chosen for strength, weight and cost. My fish scale states 21.8 lbs, sure that is close. This bike rides wonderfully! It is light, flickable, super responsive and rolls over everything.
    Love it!

    that's a pretty cool conversion. did you have to mess with spacers to restrict fork travel or adjust height? probably pretty fun!

    lately i'm kind of liking the thought of a cross bike with 50-70mm of FS.

    true dat

    yep...it's da troof

    all steel 26'ers...dekerf, brodie, tons of konas, spec-eds and you name it like gt psyclone...all very nice

    29ers in lynskey, vassago, fisher, kona, redline....

    all left me lookin'.....found this silly soma on a 3 year old unsold deal and bought it for the heck of it....and will never sell it...

    something about the xl frame in prestige just gives me a correct firm/flex mix. and the longer than advised forks give me a 68.5 headtube angle.

    for what it's worth I have only kept 2 other bikes ... an old breezer jet now morphed into a gravel grinder (awesome ride btw) and my best 26er I ever rode by far....crazy but it's a production diamondback WCF carbon/steel thingy...rides like nothing else....just wish they still made them in 27.5 or 29er flavors...an amazing magic carpet ride.

    but yeh, this cheap little tubed soma is rockin' it better than my vassago only because of the sliders and 650b wheels.

    cheers mate, no adjustment needed for me. I ride it locked out as its mainly used a commuter, hence the gearing. Makes for a very comfy road/path thrasher.

    It's a pretty much stock Transition Klunker, the bars came with it but are quite similar to the cheapest MX bars i got off ebay for another bike, the rear hub is a Hi-Stop, apparently identical to the Shimano CB-E110, once the Hi-Stop is down, I'm going to switch to Shimano guts.
    Cheers

    Thanks! Awesome ride, DHFs fix the only niggling issues I had with the prior DWs mostly having to do with the low center knob height. Just need to get some Millers tire black for those awful yellow MAXXIS letters.

    Came out pretty good, applied with 1" foam brush, but needed several coats For best results you really have to let it completely dry between coats or it comes off. It's cool and humid today so drying took awhile and I was impatient. You can kind of make out the edge of the Maxxis A in this shot. Tire color and sheen match well, a bit of dirt and probably won't be able to tell at all.
