    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.

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.
