    Lynskey Pro 29. The 2014 model uses a PF30 BB, so it was a only natural that this frame ended up as a single speed.

    Built this '96 DJab up this winter. Still contemplating switching to a '98 SID which would put the weight a hair over 15 lbs, but just over 16 with the Fox F80 RLC.

    Finally changed some parts - added some i9 SS-specific wheels, a Niner fork, & some extras (see earlier post) - and now use this bike the majority of the time....Ti = fun.....

    I see you went with rim brakes on the front! Awesome. Why did you choose the V-brake? Because it was what you have on hand, because you like it, because it's period, it's lighter?

    That Voodoo is great.

    That's so cool you are riding this more. Did it feel different or better with the SS specific rear wheel?

    Didn't have disc tabs on the rear so I just decided to keep it the same on both ends.

    So how do you like the performance of the V-brake in front compared to disc?

    I'm about to build another SS with cable v brakes front and rear, and am optimistic (as long as it's dry out!)

    I've never had a huge problem with V's, I still ride with them on several bikes. I will definitely take hydro discs on AM or any bike that I'm going to be doing a lot of downhill riding on, but for XC, I think I could still be happy with good canti's. But I think it really depends on the type of riding. The biggest tradeoff is in the modulation, V's being more likely to lock up, they just have so much leverage being on the outside of the rim.

    I thought about some KCNC's for the weight but went with Avid SL's that I found on ebay and I got a brand new set of Kool Stop dual compound pads.

    I will also say I used the jagwire link cables on this and they are worlds better than the best standard or compressionless cables I've ever used. They're not cheap, but it's hard to compare normal cables to them in performance and ease of setup.

    That's a good point about the links vs cables. I've never experienced them.

    Will have to shop for them for my upcoming new bike build. It will have Cane Creek Direct Curve 5 Vs.

    I have to reply to my own post, and commit thread drift, about the link style brake cable notion.

    Just want to say, I just shopped and read reviews, and it appears that for me, the link style housing system is not for me.

    They are more difficult to install and cost more. The gains are actually marginal if any.

    Since I already have yards of housing and cable in the garage, as well, I'll stick with the tried and true, good old fashioned, replace when worn in minutes, generic black housing and stainless cable.

    What the heck sort of titanium singlespeed thread is this? Why don't you guys take your useless banter somewhere else, stay on topic!!!

    This belonged to a guy at the creampuff last weekend - I assaulted him in the parking lot. It was made by 333 fab in seattle. He had it rigged with enve rigid fork, 27.5+ non-snakeskin nobby nics, sixc crank, a bunch of Thomson and xtr trail brakes (which looked really cool.)

    Bike was really damn light, super fast acceleration and tires were so plush. The frame was springy like a ti-frame of old, felt great to me. Is the first 27.5+ bike that I wouldn't mind owning.

    I'm happy to see bikes like this are still being made. I think it is perfect in its own way.

    PS: He lost 80 minutes dealing with a sidewall tear in his front tire. Like everyone else he regrets not getting the snakeskin edition.

    Nice. I rode a Funk when I was shopping.

    FYI, paragon recommends using the nut or the thumb screw, but not both. Also, you might consider upgrading the bolts to the ti version. My steel ones didn't last long when I was swapping cogs to find my best gear inch.

    I think you're ok with the way you have it setup. From the photo it appears the hex nut is being used to lock the screw and the thumb nut is not touching it. However that thumb nut is weighing down your bling machine and needs to be removed ASAP!

    From Paragon: Some riders use the adjusting screw bottomed out in the thumb nut, making a larger head for the adjusting screw. If you choose to do this, use the hex nut as a locknut.
    The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

    Hah, yeah. Those things weigh a ton!

    Thanks for clarifying on the paragon nut thing. I actually swapped mine out with some long enough to adjust the length of the slider. Not sure why they made the screws so short

    Are those 29 x 3's? Tires look absolutely massive. Honestly, the only new bike I've been considering at all is 29+, or the Salsa Bucksaw FS, got to demo a 29+ a few weeks ago and was impressed.

    Jeese, so not a 29er, is a 30er? Do you need to run monster tires to get the bb at the right height?

    Maybe I'm not a fan of 29+ but I don't understand why all frames don't look like this.

    Cool cool bike for sure.

    What is the min csl?

    Nice. I heard these are no longer made. I'm sad.

    Could you share frame size and measured weight?

    Oh man. Is a large too. Pretty much my dream bike you have there, 'cept I like my wheels better-er. My CK ss hub just really "ties the bike together." Bike like that deserves a higher engagement hub.

    That seat's a trailmaster LTD? If so same as mine. I have chromag grips on a shelf, switched to esi and never looked back.

    Man that's a really damn nice bike, got it all, complete.

    Do you realise how much ck ss rear hubs cost, well I do as I got mine half price at an incredibly high still £250 earth pounds.

    Hope SS is near enough same kinda.

    Oh yh esi grips, arenít those the ones that tear/fray at any sign of leaning against dirt/tree.

    Thanks! I think I got the last Large frame from Jenson, probably the last one available anywhere I built it up using parts bin parts, I had ESI but never liked them. grips are totally a personal preference type deal my Hope Pro 4 Hubs have been bullet proof i have some chris kings on another bike but like those as well.

    All your points are valid. I got a tour of a ck hub at a ck booth, but price is crazy. Bought a well used one from a friend for a friend price. Iím set and adore it. My hope bearings only lasted a year and much lower engagement.

    Yes, ragged edged esis are a sort of fashion statement.

    Fairplay, atleast you didnít go all keyboard warrior on me like some would on other UK forums lmao!

    Yes ck rear ss is a fine piece heavy but fine as.

    Esi grips actually look a good idea but for longevity not so.

    Anyway happy trails eri

    Just FYI the current Hope SS hubs have 88 POE and thus more than King.
    Rigid SS 29er

    Seriously that is awesome that Hope has upped its game.

    Thank you for pointing it out.

    To further highlight my ignorance: I looked up the Hope Pro4 and was horrified to see they were $240! For a rear hub! Shirley that's how much a CK singlespeed hub costs... isn't it? And so I looked up the CK hub and its $450. $450 for a hub, that's insane. My used one on a dented 26" wheel was $150. Yeah, I like it but.. $450... that'll be the day.

    Anyway Maximo, great bike you have there. Thought you'd like to know... a month or so ago I was hovering my mouse over the buy button at jenson for a large honzo. And I didn't pull the trigger because I already have a raijin that I love. A moment of clarity. Or doubt. Could be I almost bought your bike! Sure enough they're gone now.

    67mm BB drop, 426mm axle to BB (from centers). They are Paragon sliders with 12mm Shimano thru-axle.

    Is that csl length the current measurement, or the min? In those shots it looks like you could shorten the csl by 15mm or so.

    Nice dropouts. I am pretty sure you can remove the horizontal 'placement' bolts. I can on my kona, but maybe because my legs are too wimpy.
