    I like it, very ninja-like. Swobos are sweet bikes, especially their commuter bikes, very cool

    Interesting build, we had a discussion on the Bianchi to Swobo topic in the Secret Codes thread (one of the "chick" engineers behind Bianchi SS models went to Swobo) and Swobo doesn't make any mtb platforms.

    Someone passed this link: http://www.swobo.com/htatbl/archives...ednesdays.html

    The Baxter looks like it may fill the void for a mtb build if you toss the chainguard, bars, etc. Seems as though you took matters into your own hands with the Folsom. Did you weld disk mounts to the frame? Can you explain any problems or custom mods you did to pull it off? Assuming you use this bike as a commuter or urban ride, but it seems as though it could just as easy be configured for off-road, maybe?

    That other thread doesn't work anymore, at least the last couple of times I've tried to open it (with different browers...).

    Here's mine in it's current set up:

    I got the disc ready frame and fork direct from Swobo. This ride is solid. Highlights include the disc specific Swobo Folsom frame, which is burly and light. The Truvativ 1.1 crank has a perfect chainline with the 16T Shimano freewheel, making it a pleasure to ride. The WTB single speed specific wheels are super smooth and the Continental tires roll fast and grip tight. The headset is a trick Cane Creek S8 and the gnarly seatpost is a Gravity by FSA. Everything is new (except the disc brakes, seat and grips). The gear ratio is 32/16, perfect for off road adventures and hilly terrain. I built this bike for a friend, but now I'm selling it. $800 bones takes all.

    Heres my SS

    Integrated Post just for somthing different, and clean, i know that this may be frowned upon in the MTB world, But ahwell. I also made sure the Tbue is 31.6mm ID so if i need to cut it, no probs, just get it reamed, and slide a post in.

    My "custom" Jamis Exile SS

    Here's my '06 Jamis Exile. I bought this last year from Jenson for $625. Swapped out some parts, resold the OEM stuff I removed, and bought some replacement parts. Upgrades from stock:

    • Fox F80 RL replaced the crappy Manitou Axle Platinum shock.
    • On One Mary Bar and Stem
    • Kenda Nevegal Tires and stock rims converted to Tubeless using Stans Rimstrips and Sealent.
    • White Industrys ENO 18T freewheel
    • Classic Selle Italia Flite Saddle
    • Time ATAC pedals
    • Oury Grips


    The new weight stands at just over 24 lbs (down from 26.5 lbs stock).
    The Hayes Sole brakes are the next to go. Steel is real...this bike rides like a dream!

    Repo...

    I am not sure of the numbers, but I have Kenda Nevegals on there, and there is tons of space. I am certain that just about anything would fit.

    That looks a LOT like my bike. Same frame, handlebar, freewheel, seat. I have changed to Elixir CR since this pic was taken. You are right, it is a really nice riding frame.
