    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.

    looks great in it's new incarnation!
    oddly enough I've been looking at monstercrossing something and my old hoolie popped into my head!
    if you ever feel like it, I fit 29x2" tires in that thing, only about 4 mm of mud clearance IIRC, but 29x42's or something will fit great i figure!

    enjoy the old big red dog.

    Yep, I saw your bike on another thread and thought the same thing - that's funny. I love the Mary bar and ENO freewheel - big improvements. The saddle's off my old road bike and it fits this bike's personality perfectly. I was looking for a used Sid or Fox F80. Ended up getting a decent deal on a Fox off eBay. That was a huge performance upgrade for the bike - plus it shed almost 2lbs! The brakes are the next thing to upgrade - but for the global collapse of capitalism I would have a pair of Juicy 7s by now. BTW, the stock WTB Speed Disc rims are easy to convert to tubeless using Stan's.

    Are you in the DC area too? Too funny to meet on a local trail - Team Exile!

    Here is my single speed. I converted it to ss back in November and posted it on the old thread. Here it is now without the tensioner and a new Thudbuster.

    At an absurdly wicked price too I might add. Fantiastic frame and ride. And except for me f-ing up the b/b install and stripping the nondrive side threads,no issues at all.

    rear hub is hope pro 2 ss/trials. surly wide cog. front hub is atomlab. rims are rhynolite xl. wheels are tough as hell...i've messed up pretty big on this bike, and yet to even need the wheels trued.

    Nice Bike ^^

    I plan to change it up to a tubeless setup too. Most likely the crankset too and maybe a carbon rigid fork.

    Yep, no trick photo here. It is real slack and on my to-do list this evening. I was having issues with the EBB, or for better words, my dumb azz was not familiar with the workings of the EBB.

    Here is a snapshot of mine taken today. '06 unit, 26" 32/18. Light enough to get up the hill, strong enough to handle getting down it.

    Matt Chester Mutinyman:




    Jeff Jones SpaceFrame:




    Which do I like better?
    Both.

    Seriously, some days I like the low, racey feeling of the Chester. It's flexy and comfy and what I'll probably race most of the time. Other days I love the bomb-proofness and indestruct-ability of the Jones. It's a few pounds heavier, but I can jump around with aplomb, then put it away wet. I'm glad I have both.

    I've posted these before, but what the hell:





    Things I've changed since are the tires, and then I moved the bottle cage to the seat tube for better weight distribution

    Just finished building a new 1x1. Been riding it every day. After riding FS for so long I'm really enjoying the power transfer of a fully rigid. Today I tried to pop a wheelie, and went straight onto my back with my feet still attached, glad no one was watching. BTW 26" SS is alive and well although I might throw a 29" on the front for fun when I get some more cash.

    Specs

    SURLY 1x1 20"
    Cranks: Surly mr whirly w/ BB
    32:16 Surly whirly:ENO
    Rear wheel is a surly disc hub w/ f519 rim (prolly throw discs on soon)
    Avid 7's v-brakes front and rear
    Cane creek front wheel
    Thomson elite seatpost
    Koski seat (soon the be replaced, ouch!)
    Bars: Race face evolve DH 27"
    Headset: Cane Creek Tank hit 2
    Grips: titec hellbent
    Stem: raceface
    chain: KMC 610HX
    Pedals: mallet 2's



    This was my first but not last build. I really took my time and tried to learn as much as possible. Thanks to the people on this forum, my lurking taught me a lot.
