    What stripped/repainted frame is that? It's oddly reminiscent of my Norco Bigfoot, but cable guides are in different spots, there's a headtube/downtube gusset, and it's got canti bosses...

    How do the welds look? I was thinking of just stripping the paint off my Inbred and going for this same look but others cautioned me that the welds could/would look terrible.

    I would like to know what brand spacers did u use for the rear cog. I am interested in getting similar anodized spacers. Where did you get them?

    Well, I got 9 more years till I hit 50 but this is very promising! The bile looks great! I think the only thing I would try to get my hands on would be an Erickson or BS laid back post just to smooth out the laid back look and match things up a little more! Hell, I can't wait to turn 50 if this is what I have to look forward to!

    My newly converted single speed bike. Loving the single speed experience. Bike weighed 23lbs when it was geared. Looking to put carbon rigid forks on it soon as well as a 'proper' front chainring.

    Is it just perspective or is that front wheel smaller than the rear? And what size rotors are those? Holy frick, they look enormous.

    It's perspective. Both wheels are 26". Front rotor size is 203mm...

    Coupled it with the non series BR486 with metallic pads, they bite just nice. Not overly powerful and does the job when needed.

    Ha - no doubt the Niner carbon forks look great! However I want a fork that moves up and down about 100mm I wish I could warm up to the rigid fork because I think they win handily from an aesthetics standpoint.

    Thanks J3SSEB. There are some great looking bikes on this thread. I go back and forth – sometimes bling and bright colors appeal to me the most and then other times the stealthy looking bike is my favorite.

    "Bigfoot"

    I posted my bike here before, but I've updated it to "bigfoot" configuration: Rigid front fork, 2.4" high volume front tire, 2.25" high volume rear, both tubeless. 32x18 gearing, it's happiest on tight, steep, and rooty single track.

    I'm not a big sticker fan, so the fork and frame are bare, the wheels are next. This bike is stupid fun.

    Ha! Not quite, they're black under the stickers. But I do want a white seat post.

    Funny thing is, my other bike is black. It's the Johnny Cash bike. I guess that makes this one Vanilla Ice.

    I think it looks pretty sharp as it is. Would look good though with black grips and a red seatpost collar!

    Red collar and white seatpost are next...maybe even a white saddle.

    A wise man once said, "A place where a sweaty ass sits for hours on end is no place for white". This is why most saddles are black or brown.

    Anything white on outdoor equipment of any kind has never made sense to me. Keep in mind I have a dresser full of yellow t-shirts ...

    Looks good Jake. The saddle matches the paint job nicely!

    I switched to a Niner fork on mine. Rides less harsh than the Carver.

    I see hills.

    I want to climb them.

    i see you've made a couple other changes too from the original build. looks good. we need to update your carve page too. i got a buddy to pick up one of the frames too as he is a giant and needed a 23". he loves it.

    Singlespeeding with kids

    Okay, excuse me for the road version, but there is very little chance to find dirt tracks in the area i live now...

    This is my only bike at the moment, a commuter, a tourer and a monstercross wannabe. It's a dinglespeed with 32x18 as a main gear and 28x22 as a backup option. Never needed the lower gear up to now, and switched to 32x15 since the photo was made. The hills are really less of a problem than flats that's why the higher gear.. It's a zero elevation sea shore area here, so the tallest "hills" are actually river banks.

    May get a second wheelset with an 8 speed IGH somewhen in the future but so far really liking the SSer..
