    Here's my Krampus in single speed mode. Love this bike.

    The &quot;New&quot; Post Your Singlespeed!-img_20171011_153321101-1-.jpg

    Ran it 1x10 for a while, but it feels much better balanced with only one cog at the back.

    Nice, what were you running before? How does it ride?

    Vassago's website is seems to be lacking key information. What is the offset? What is the A-C?

    Tell me more!
    Rigid SS 29er
    Fat Lefty
    SS MonsterCross
    SS cyclocross
    all steel

    Stop asking how much it weighs and just go ride it.

    What's the carver fork like. I've been tempted a few times but never pulled the trigger.

    Wow! That looks like a BOSS! What sort of B.B. shell is that? What bike? Looks cool.

    I'll let you know when the dust settles and I get a chance to ride it.

    I have been on a 100mm Reba. My bikes are usually part-time rigid/squish fork.

    Thanks! It is a standard BSA bottom bracket shell with the Phil Wood Philcentric bottom bracket and so far it's been great. Reading the install directions makes it seem hard to do, but once you do it and grasp the concept of how it works, it's surprisingly simple to set up.

    Phil Wood & Co.

    The frame is a Workswell 062 which is a generic carbon frame. The geometry is very similar to the 2015 Specialized Stumpjumper HT frames. Here is the spec sheet.

    Frame: Workswell 062 18.5" BSA
    Fork: RS Sid XX 120mm travel
    F Brake: SLX M675 180 CL rotor
    R Brake: XTR Race M9000 160 CL rotor
    Stem: ANVL Swage 50mm
    Bars: Easton Haven 35 carbon
    Headset: FSA supplied by Workswell
    Saddle: Bontrager Affinity RXL carbon
    Seatpost: Nashbar carbon
    Post clamp: Circus monkey QR
    Crankset: Sram XO carbon 175mm
    Ring: Blackspire 32t GXP round
    Chain: SLX 10 speed
    Cassette: Origin8 18t sprocket
    Wheels: Stans Crest MK3, DT Swiss 350 hubs 54t ratchet, DT AeroComp spokes, Sapim self-locking nipples
    Tires: Bontrager XR2 29x2.2

    Ready to ride weight is 20lbs give or take a bit.

    I want more info, too! I also looked at their site and it doesn't list the specs as Onespeed pointed out. Is it about the same A-C as your 100mm Reba?

    nearly certain the Odis is 480mm 100x15 tapered 45mm offset

    Priced way lower than Soma's (nearly identical specs) even when not on sale

    Good enough for 14 laps at OP, and tons of miles after. More compliant than my Niner fork, and almost as precise.

    This may be a short-lived experiment, since I can really appreciate both higher and lower gears on this bike, but I've been dying to try it. If we don't get more rain, testing will commence in the morning...

    Thanks! It'll look a little better when it's done. Ran into all kinds of hassles all of a sudden. Between something rattling around in the rear wheel's rim, the rear brake losing pressure due to a seal or something, and one of my super lightweight stem's bolts breaking, I'm running temporary replacements for all of the above, and a different rear tire than usual.
    Shorter Syntace Megaforce stem arriving today, and the rear brake will look like this again, shortly:

    I'll try to remember to. Looks like steady rain the next couple days, so...yuck.
    That's a Rohloff 8250 XC/SS tensioner.
    I want to ride more at a place with longer climbs and downhills, so don't know if this will work out. Much prefer SS, though, and will keep it like this for a little while and see how it goes.
    A Riot and SS N9 cover a lot of bases!

    Any have recommendations for a 27.5 ss hardtail? Hoping to run a 120/130 fork on it. Besides that I'm all ears. Already know about the Soma B-side and Kona Explosif.

    I recently converted my race bike and made other changes as well.

    '17 Scott Scale 900RC now was 120mm SID RCT3, Purgatory/Ground Control 2.3" and 36/18 gearing. In the stand, without a chain tensioner, the chain tension was perfect but after one ride it has slightly stretched and I have since installed one(just in case).
