    bar bikes!

    they are truly a great concept [townie just seems too gay...not that there is anything wrong with that....]. I plan to sell my current bar bike in the spring - figgered a case of beer would be the asking price.

    Yes, townie does sound gay and yes there is something wrong with things that are gay. If there wasn't they wouldn't be gay.

    two SS's: trail, and obligatory "bar bike"

    Surly 1x1 gets all my love (pictured here in one of its many incarnations), but the converted '72 Schwinn LeTour is the crowd pleaser.

    Not welded on though. They way i understand it Specialized made a few, 5 i believe, SS frames a few years back especially for team members. This is one of them. Its pretty sweet- no cable guides for der. and a special message on the bottom of the bb.

    retrotec revisited.

    My retrotec is going from 27 lbs to 22 lbs... cause I'm bored!! I took out my fox fork cause it's time to cruise on the rigid. Also the brooks saddle had a tussle with my privates so it's sidelined for now. Notice that new carbon rail saddle!!

    The profile cranks might have to go since they weigh 16 lbs. I'm a little bummed about that. I'm kind changing the look and feel of the bike but I'm really curious how fast this bike can go on light spec.

    again. Converted the KM back from a fixie to its (slightly modified) original incarnation as an MTB SS. Had to hobble my Isis to do it, since I needed a front disc brake--no big deal since the Isis has seen dirt about 2 times in the last year.

    Built up just in time for the craptastic weather as my snow rider. 29 tires really grip!

    Trial run is tomorrow, unless the trails are just one huge slab of ice--my first time running a flat bar. Thinking of taking this to Westminster (MD) Sunday for the post-swap ride.

    The KM...

    From Mr. Don Ferris of Anvil. But he got a little behind on schedule for this custom build and I wasn't pushing him since I won it in a raffle based on trail maintenance hours in my local MTB club.

    The SS fleet

    I enjoy seeing everyone's bikes. Here's what's in our stable. The 'boom is mine, the N'zumbi is my wife's, and the Humu we share. Don't have a pic of my singleator'd Deep Cove HandJob commutant, but who needs to see clip-on fenders and reflectors anyway?

    Chazza's Leader...

    I posted this last time a 'calling all bikes' post rolled around, and now have a better picture. It's a Leader frame (read: cheap), Truvativ SS cranks, XT/317 wheels, 2.4 Motoraptors, Titec Hellbent bars, SpeedShe saddle, and Hayes mech brakes. It does everything it's desgined to do, and nothing more. It will survive the trip back to Australia, and won't whither away when it doesn't get much maintenance.

    <img src='http://gallery.consumerreview.com/webcrossing/images/IMG_0025(11).jpg'>

    And my Chameleon, which has changed a bit since I last posted it. New bars (fat Planet X risers) and tires (Pythons), new saddle and seatpost (Titec XC Pro, and WTB Speed V), and a homemade bashguard. Badass blue grips, too.

    You wouldn't believe how fun that thing is to ride! I rode it in our local Christmas parade with one of our bike shops, and it's the bike of choice for pub crawls. All the girls want to ride it. The road front brake is pretty dicey, but does the job if you plan ahead! I had it set up fixie for a while, but couldn't cut it with the flat pedals, and didn't want to limit myself to clipless riding only.

    That was actually my first road bike (used), with all the original "Scwhinn Approved" 10 spd stuff. It's a 64cm frame, and rides like an enormous Sting Ray. It can ride a mean wheelie, too. Post a pic if you build one with a banana and hangers! Thanks to Joel in KC for the bars, and A&B's junk pile for the banana seat!

    My new Surly 1x1

    Here is my overbuilt Surly 1x1

    http://gallery.consumerreview.com/we...MADSurly-1.jpg

    Basic component list:

    Paul hubs and break levers
    Avid disks (185 front, 160 rear)
    King Steel Set headset
    Truvativ Hussefelt bar, stem, cranks, giga pipe 4 bearing Team DH BB, XR double clamp seatpost
    blah, blah, blah

    Bottom line this is the best riding bike I own and I can't wait to break it in even more.

    Four of four

    "Don't have a pic of my singleator'd Deep Cove HandJob commutant, but who needs to see clip-on fenders and reflectors anyway?"

    Well, as it turns out, I do have a pic of the commuter leaning on a bike locker. While it does have reflectors, the fenders were off for the summer when the shot was taken. I'll be pressing this Frankenbike special back into service within a week or two.

    Component highlights include an old Specialized rim I bought while on a trip and checked through as baggage on the flight home, a front wheel I scored for $2.99 at a thrift store, a "Godspeed" tensioner (a shameless ripoff of a Surly Singleator), a neat AC BMX chainring I'd like on my real SS, and a bagfull of headset spacers atop a not-suspension-corrected-enough GT hard fork that makes the bike a twitchfest to ride. I keep a special place in my heart for bar ends.

    it is like crack......

    Finally got my SS conversion out on the trail today. Rode at Bluff Creek on the NW side of OKC figuring it would be a nice tame place to try it out. I planned on doing about 2 laps (4 miles per), but ended up doing 4. Everytime I got around to the start point my body was saying no, but my brain was saying yes. I just couldn't stop!!! I may be hooked.....

    My bike is a '90 or so Ross Mt Hood chromo frame/rigid fork. Only real improvment is the LX v-brakes and singulator. Chainring is a cheapo Nashbar 36T and cog is Nashbar 21T. That seemed to work well for my current abilities. Now to save up for that Explosif frame and goodies.

    Beau

    #1 - My bike on the trail for proof
    #2 - I couldn't find the SMALLEST store. Saw this on my way back from OKC to the sprawling metropolis of Enid, OK.
