    Thanks p nut..... I am super happy how she turned out. My wife thinks I'm silly but it's cool that it glows in the dark!

    What's your gearing? Looks biggish (33x17?). I'm at 33x20 to 22. Trails get steep here and I have girl legs. And for the record, I would def get the glow in the dark if I got a Niner.

    34x18 for most of my training. 34x17 when I want to do intervals on the ss. I find that 33x18 is great for most of the steep stuff in Florida when I want to ride more than 60 miles.

    swapped bars back to the soma odins, and trimmed them dowb, pulled a saddle out of the LBS spare parts bin.
    haven't removed the studs yet. and need to shorten cables... when i get things sorted.
    currently running fixed.
    since the pugs arrived december this has been sitting in the rack... :(
    first ride this morning on it in quite a while!

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.

    I've been on the fence on whether I would SS a FS bike I have, you've inspired me to do it.

    New Spot Frame
    Just bought this frame a couple weeks ago and swapped out the parts from my Longboard.
    It rides nice but I'm a little disappointed with the limited rear tire size I can run.
