    Not quite done, and wearing some old Hayes brakes/rotors while waiting on warranty replacements for a SRAM Guide RS set, but I'll put it here since it just went SS after a few weeks of riding in the same gear.

    2016 Canfield Yelli Screamy
    -Reba "RCT3" 120mm
    -Arch Mk3/DT350(36T) w/XR3 Team Issue rear
    -Flow Mk3/DT350 w/XR4 Team Issue front
    -shimmed KS Lev 272 dropper
    -huge PITA SS conversion w/a Blackspire Stinger that required Dremeling it to clear the chainstays, plus a 0 offset direct mount chainring and way outboard cog to match, but it works as well as any fixed tensioning method could with an oval. When it comes time to replace the chainring, I'm going back to a Singleator, though(no slop with an oval).

    'Course I can't tell any difference pedaling it, but I sure did enjoy pulling that shifter and RD off.
    Freedom!!!:cool:

    Good to have you back!

    The SS pea we her man went on another fascinating voyage this evening. Don't lose any sleep. It's really that exciting, you already knew it, because my girl friends dig the SS.

    Zzzzz...SS.....Zzzzz.

    My Highball for 2017. Swapped to a black chainring purely for aesthetics lol, and an Ergon seat, still have some Ergon grips to throw on.

    Found a ss wheelset, Arch EX rims built on some ss Hope hubs, but I'm still unsure if I should grab it. The front hub being a 15mm would push me to upgrading my fork as well, which I've been planning for a while. I realize that Hope hubs are convertible, but I've been debating getting a new fork since I got this bike last spring. Any tips?

    Also, I agree with the comments about those Niners, they are the t*ts.

    tip: carbon fork

    judging by the horizon in your pic it looks like that would suit you well

    I've toyed with the idea, but I'm not sold. I mean Ontario isn't exactly filled with mountains, but the trails aren't as flat as the farms around my home.

    Nice Highball! If I was upgrading to 15mm I'd go boost for future proofing. And if you ever feel like throwing a plus tire up front it makes the choices much easier.

    It's a 135mm spaced Jones Truss. The Waltworks frame was specifically designed for this fork. It's by far the most solid and confidence inspiring rigid fork I've ridden, and I've ridden quick a few!

    Final config on my Gnarvester SS with the RS 120mm. Also swapped out dropper post from another bike to match the black fork. I keep toying with the idea of replacing this frame with a Pivot LES Fat or Borealis Echo, but I just love this bike too much. Coming upon 3 years old now.

    My El Mar frame cracked at the chainstays, but my friendly local mechanic had a 2012 Unit lying around. So I cannibalized the cockpit, brakes, drivetrain, rear wheel, and tires from the El Mar and put this together.

    That seems like an awesome substitute! Congrats on the frame score!

    Been a few years since i posted her. Although i've spent most of my time and money on newer bikes in the recent years, i've still managed to keep her up to date on all her shots and checkups. One of these days i'll get around to updating to a lighter crank. In current form shes sitting just under 17lbs.
