    My fairly typical misfit. It's an awesome ride though. Fast, agile, and supple. Bought used as it sits 'cept for grips and pedals.

    Not without incident.

    Well, I don't have any pictures just yet, but I have been working on some things the past few weeks. No, not a new bike, just a bunch of new parts. Hopefully I'll get some new pictures of it this weekend as everything should be done by then.

    I can say that the new XTR M985 race brakes are frickn awesome and weigh considerably less than my Elixer CR's did (new brakes weigh in at about 430g complete-not including rotors). Sure they aren't in the R1 range but they cost me 1//3 of what R1's do!

    Somebody asked for homegrowns. Here is mine. Sorry I am showing you the wrong side, but there is nothing exciting over there anyway.

    Just after my ride testing out the Ikons for tomorrow. They did really well the trail was very sandy and they held their own (race is a big sand pit anyways and it regardless of weather), was a few mud spots and they held like a larger knobbed tire would. I attribute that to the 3C compound mostly, especially on the uphill stone climb.

    My '94 Rockhopper converted. Original chainrings were not separable, so I got this new one and then used a conversion kit. Got it powdercoated (only $75!) and its ready to go. Weighs in at 24 lbs.

    Nice. How do you adjust the tensioner? I have the same one and I just push it down as hard as I can and crank the bolt tight. Seems to work, but I don't know if it's to tight or not?

    Just spent a few days reading this thread all the way from page 1, there's so many awesome bikes, enjoyed every page of it.
    I'll get around posting my fleet of singlespeed bikes whenever I have enough posts to do so.

    I just cut the chain as close as I could without the tensioner, so when I put it on I just had to push it down a little. You can see in the photo that its only about 1/4 of the way. The chain is pretty tight compared to my regular ride. After I got it set up I realized that I really don't need the chainstay protector.

    it's a chain love special. A marzocchi 44 micro ti reduced down to 100 mm. I also cut off my cantilever brake posts before I had it powder coated. I'm having trouble finding replacement stickers though

    19.53 lbs

    I have finally broken 20 lbs!!!! Not bad for a mass produced (well not any more...thanks to them going out of business) steel frame!

    Ok, may not mean much to alot of you folks out there but it has been a bit of a quest. So here it is, (as many have seen before-but with new shoes!)

    Hope EVO Pro II's
    Sapim CX-Ray spokes
    Black nipples
    Stans Crest rims, yellow tape and valves
    Maxxis Ikon 2.2's
    Ashima 160 rotors
    Surly 17t cog
    Toronto Cycles ti rear hub bolts (stock bolts were like 31.4g each! Ti ones are 30g for the pair!)

    Ok so I'm still waiting for the ti rotor bolts to arrive as well as an HBC 18t cog in red, and a red cassette lock ring. But other than that I am quite happy! I got one ride in on it so far and if the weather holds out I will be out on her again tomorrow for hopefully 20+ miles. Rides great, wheels feel stiff and the tires are fast! The gearing is a little more challenging on the climbs but I was riding on my dual Bronson tires with a 16t the other day so it actually felt better.

    Weight of bike before going to dual Bronsons (had an Ikon on the front and a Bounty 29.3 on the rear) was 20.86. Weight with new wheels as pictured (minus computer and spare tube) is 19.53!

    At this point, I think I am done! Well for a little while anyway. Might get a new red HBC chain ring and some sort of red ceramic bb in the next few months or over the winter. But other than that, I just want to ride it!

    Nice, thanks! I think I'll have to buy that chain sometime in the future. I've just added several upgrades and need to slow down a bit

    Here's my single. Its already in here but I've added some upgrades.

    my new blackbuck

    Mark Slate put out a second batch of frames, here's mine.

    I've been riding a Singular Swift, which I like a lot. I've only got one ride on this one, but it felt nice. Fits real good. Handles nice. I moved most of my parts over from the Bianchi SOK I had which is why my 960 cranks are a little scuffed up.

    Some build notes:
    hadley hubs w/dt swiss rev's laced to WTB hoops, tubeless
    Fox 100 rlc w/15mm axle (want a terralogic...)
    Shimano xt brakes 885's, I think
    enduro ceramic bb

    and some crappy pictures.

    I don't know what it weighs. I know that I could stand to lose a good 20lbs. so there's that...

    i absolutely love it. sure, some of that can be due to the novelty, but i have had MANY single speeds in both 26 and 29 flavor and love this one. the only other one that was nearly as much "fun" was my By:Stickel due that radical geometry and i miss that bike. The downhill prowess of this one as a rigid was freaking outstanding.

    zero regrets

    So how do you like those wheels? I see a lot of mixed reviews, but have a pair in transit to try out myself.

    What a piece of crap! You should send it out to me so I can destroy it for you. Hell, I'll even send you mine as a replacement so you won't feel so bad.

    Very nice! Love the curves and who needs color with something like that! Nudity is a good thing. All that extra color coating does is add weight!

    I can hear the chain slap and rattle already! But I'm pretty sure that if I had a second mtb one of them would be geared for sure.
