    On One Inbred SS 26er

    Nothing fancy but love it! Got the frame 2nd hand and added the rest mostly from bits I already had plus a few online bargains. Maiden voyage today and loved it. SS - I get it! The other bike will now hibernate and I'll review in the spring

    The wheels dont match but this bike is a work in progress and has been built on the cheap
    I am currently looking at the exotic forks. I was wondering what if the axle to crown on your fork is 425mm or 445mm?

    Out on the first single speed trail ride on the new SE. I know it was a bad picture with my shadow but it's the only action shot I have.

    Misfit Dissent

    This is not only my first SS but its my first 29er. I put about 50 miles on it last week and cannnot be happier. Shes weighing in at around 23 lbs with the now tubeless setup. Looks like my Ragley is going to be seeing a lot less riding time.

    My uphill bike.

    I've just change frame few weeks ago and I really love this one. I am very lucky to have the magic gearing 32x18 - perfect tight with new chain.

    It wasn't tensioned much at all in that pic! But yeah, Philcentric and a half-link at 32/20 and it's perfect now. Went for another long ride today, and wow I love this bike.

    Got juiced!

    Lovin' it so far. Much nimbler handling and a more compliant ride than the Raleigh XXIX I had. And the color is growin' on me!







    Please excuse the extra length of brake line. Getting that trimmed soon...

    Where do you ride?

    Might want to consider changing the fork to a Salsa Cromoto for better minor bump absorption.

    Converted to a fixed gear just for the hell of it. Finally cleared Hell Hill on this thing after so many tries. Few weeks ago when the sun was out.

    "Cross" posting from the cyclocross forum. I recently got this bike back from my sis. I didn't want it set up as another road bike anymore, plus, I have a friend who was wanting to try mtb'ing but didn't want to invest in a ride.

    Took 'im out to my usual singletrack and honestly did a lot better than I was expecting. Terrible caliper brakes, and the gearing is a bit too high, but again I cleared a LOT more than I thought I was going to (38x17). The skinnier/bigger front wheel definitely almost threw me a couple times but luckily I didn't eat it.

    In other words, a total f'ing blast.

    Might I propose a Vassago subforum no that they are alive again. And should the first thread be Jabbers in the Wild?

    Well, they are actually alive again!!! The site is up and running and you can actually order stuff!

    As for the thread, there used to be a Jabber thread I thought.

    I couldn't resist taking the picture when I came up on an open field along the trail. It was a full moon and I wish I had a real camera with me that night instead of my blackberry but it turned out ok I guess.

    Nice, what model is that? Just recently started to research a SS DJ bike, to complement my Jabber. Interested to hear more about it.

    This was my first SS that I built up before moving on to the Jabberwocky, a '96 Hoo Koo. Posted a while back in this thread but made some changes and now she serves as an around town gravel grinder.

    @goldenaustin Hi there my bike is a Hansomedog frame 16'' I believe it was made by kenisis for All terrain cycles.I brought it on ebay for £5 and the forks are 120mm mantou axel comps also 2nd hand on ebay for £30 .I built it just to save my geared bike from the English winter and love it so much it gets ridden more.

    saddle: charge spoon

    chain ring: on one stainless steel 32 tooth

    gusset chain tensioner

    nukeproof warhead seat post

    continental speed king 2.1 tyres

    think it weighs about 23 pounds so not light but I could'nt live with rigid forks as they were killing my wrists and shoulders on longer rides

    My first SS grew from this:

    1994(ish) Mongoose


    To this:



    Newer Rocky Moutain Vertex frame w/ Easton XC SS wheels w/ BB7's and Fox Float. After loving the budget build Mongoose I had to build something a little newer and better. I love riding this bike!

    I ride in West Java Indonesia.
    I am still looking for steel fork with 410-420mm axle-crown length, not confidence with this one for off-road LOL.

    I have a 440mm rigid fork from Scott Voltage, I put it on my Off-road bike. Well it's a DJ frame so the geometry is fine with that fork and I use it for XC race and uphill.

    The New ONE 9

    Posted this last year, but now it has a nice Carbon Niner fork along with a 2.35 Scwhalbe RR to help smooth things out (so practically a new bike). Took it out for a ~30 miles w/ ~5000 feet of climbing, and it performed wonderfully and I felt good afterward.
    For anyone who cares, this thing weighs ~19.5 lbs (just an estimate based on the additions/subtractions) but who cares! It rides great, climbs great, and I am no speedster anyway so I don't get too rattled.

    Just after the build

    I made some changes to my '09 Unit. I swapped the risers for a Fleegle Pro bar (along with a stem with a little more rise), swapped the Karate Monkey fork for a Kona P2, and a Crossmark replaced the worn-out Ignitor on the back.

    Overall, they were all good changes. The new Crossmark climbs far better than a 50%-worn Ignitor, and the extra sweep on the bars is nice. As far as the forks go, there isn't much difference, but the P2 seems to 'buzz' a bit less on big hits.
