    Good choice. I was a little skeptical about it but now I'm really glad I did. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

    Just got the new fork on! Bought the bike about two months ago and have been riding it a bunch as the weather has gotten drier and warmer! Can't wait to try it out with some cushion up front!

    I had to go back and look, good call. Now I'm curious to why there are some pictures with the Surly sticker on down tube and others without it. Trick photography

    Ha! Good catch! The photos with the decals were taken a few days earlier. Upon finishing the project and photographing it, I realised the frame decals needed to go. I wanted her to be the silent, stealth machine. I only reshot the main photo and not the different angles.. Once I get another sunny day here, I'll probably take some others.

    Been back riding heavily for 5 months now and am absolutely loving it as my main form of commuting and exercising. This build is the result of all the research and education which started right here on these forums. Originally I had started with a 2006 Fisher Cronus and turned it into a single speed. Then, I started replacing bits. That's a slippery slope indeed!! Fortunately I discovered ChainReaction and Wiggle for cheaper parts than here in Australia. YouTube provided heaps of knowledge as well. My LBS guys were also exceptionally cool, when I needed a hand, especially considering I wasn't shopping with them. In the end, I brought them a case of beer.

    Ride on!

    Hey, if they can't make any money selling bike parts, at least they can get free beer!

    Scored the frame for 50 bucks at a swap yesterday, couldn't bring myself to do HW with the thing sitting on the floor staring at me, so I HAD to build it. . As soon as I finished I went for a little test ride, ended up being a 2 hour ride all in and around town. I am in love.

    Is that fixed?
    I've tried fixed for uphill and it's awesome how I need less effort to climb.

    no its not fixed, dunno how I would feel about that, I do love coasting.

    -greasemonkeee
    yeah I was pretty stoked! I've been snooping on craigslist and at swaps for at least a year looking for a frame with ho' dropouts or track ends. ghetto SS is alright, but this is the real deal!

    This XC 29'er looks like an AM bike! I like it!! How much travel you got on this thing, 130mm? Also, what's the weight on that build?

    The Heaviest Tranny In The World

    My Ibis Tranny in full freeride and stunt-crushing mode. It runs about 23 1/2 pounds with those big Nevegals, tubes, and latex. It slims down to about 22 with Small Block 8s. I will be shortening those hoses when I find the right stem and install the 180mm rotors that just arrived in the post...

    My new Sycip Diesel

    Just traded my Jamis Dakar XLT for this ride. I'm pretty happy. I have a Thompson post coming in for it this week. Still a lot of parts on my wishlist though....

    yes, I posted my setup yesterday in the "budget SS post", but figured, no one is really posting on that, so I will put my bike here for now. Tunturi stock (for now) with shimano 16t freewheel and shimano 32t chainwheel and cranks. Currently using my old derailer for a tensioner but got a tensioner coming in the post next week. I got a lot of things in store for this bike.

    Any have any suggestions on painting a frame yourself? I mean, I know it wont be that professional looking, but I want something better than just your average spray paint. Im open for suggestions.
