    My first SS, first 29er and first HT since the 90's. I love it so far, I never want to ride my FS bike anymore.

    Frame: Trek Marlin, 17.5"
    Fork: Rockshox Recon Solo Air TK Silver w/ G2 geometry
    Wheels: Stan's Arch w/ ZTR hubs
    Tires: Bontrager 29-3 Team Issue 2.0" w/ Stan's sealant
    Cranks: E-thirteen XC SS
    BB: The Hive
    Chainring: Blackspire Mono Veloce 32T
    Cog: Surly 20T
    Chain: KMC 710SL Gold
    Brakes: Avid Elixir 5
    Rotors: Avid G2CS 160mm
    Headset: OEM - Came with frame
    Stem: Bontrager Race Lite 90mm
    Handlebars: Witchey WCS Carbon 15mm rise
    Grips: Ritchey WCS foam
    Seatpost: Thomson Elite 27.2x350mm setback
    Saddle: WTB Silverado Team
    Clamp: Hope non-QR
    Pedals: Crank Brothers Candy C

    The only thing I may change this year (unless something breaks) is to get a HBC 20T cog. Next year I'd like to get a carbon frame and either Reba or F29 RLC, maybe also better brakes (not a huge fan of the Elixirs, I just happened to have them leftover from my Fuel EX 8) and Eggbeaters.

    Ok, so I mostly commute and run errands on this, but it sees a lot of singletrack in form of cut throughs and I do take it on trails from time to time.

    And I've included a couple photos from the ride home...

    FS SS more fun than HT SS

    So I'm rehabing a sprain knee and thought the fs rig would be a little bit more of a smoother ride than my ht ss. Well I had all the old parts from when I first converted over to ss several years ago so I didn't have to buy anything, just took about 1.5 hours of time to convert everything over. I was really impressed with how well the bike handled on the trail as a ss. The ML is a great bike geared but I thought as a ss it would be kinda sluggish. This setup bombed through turns and downhill and although it's about 5 lbs heavier than my ht ss, I didn't notice it in my overall time. I think I'm going to leave the gears off for now and maybe throw a Paul tensioner on there. The surly did fine, some small pops when I really torqued the chain but with this type of tensioner I've had similar problems on other bikes, so I picked up a half link to get the chain a little tighter and if that doesn't fix it, I'll go with the Paul setup.

    Took the plunge and bought an inexpensive SS 29er (GT Peace 9r) in January having never ridden either. The most fun I've had on a bike in many years! Two months later picked up a used El Mariachi frame, finished building two days ago, maiden voyage yesterday. Had a blast!!

    If my bike were that ugly, I'd shave it's ass and make it roll backwards!

    Not really, just teasing you. It's nice. I think the green and brown go good together. Did you paint it? And what fork is on it.

    It's actually copper colored...sort of. It is hard to tell in the pictures though. I got the frame powdercoated a nice copper vein color, so it's a bit textured..wish I could show this by pictures because it is very cool. And the fork is a Soul Cycles Hooligan. I got it on sale from SC for $9 I was going to powdercoat the fork too but the color was so close when I saw it that I decided not too. I would have spent more powdercoating it than I spent on the fork. It is a light pearl brown/copper color and besides not being textured it is very similar. Got the frame for free from a buddy so $75 for the powdercoat and $9 for the fork isn't bad

    You need to invest in a setback seatpost. It is a beautiful bike besides.

    Thanks guys, yes I see a setback post in my near future. I was going to get one when I did the build but had the Easton CF one and had to see how it did.
