    ok. here goes!




    Jamis Diablo 16" frame (1995?)
    Barracuda embroidered selle itallia saddle to make me feel cool.
    600mm bars since I'm too lazy to swap wider now and I don't mind that much anyway.
    these 2.1 contis on the trail feels like riding a pugsley on the road. sooo plush.
    i put on a fujiwara tofu shop decal to inspire confidence as well as remind me that mtbing is extremely skills based when I'm on the winding trails.
    36x17 gearing, gettin dropped on long flat sections aww yeah.



    honestly she looks better when she has her makeup on.

    I agree, sadly those were earlier pictures, it was running a magic gear with the relatively new chain and later it stretched enough to derail regularly and it didn't stretch far enough to go down by 1 tooth and a halflink. so cheap tensioner is the best compromise for now.

    You may also notice the longer felt stem in the earlier pictures, i accidentally stripped that and had to go to the bontrager stem. The seat pin also broke and has been replaced with a quick release from a similar year trek. the bottom bracket could probably be replaced at some point too but the next thing will be to get a new rear wheel with a WI eccentric hub, probably before the new year.

    At this point I'm not sure if I'm posting for "baddest SS" or "most ghetto SS". whichever way it is I will be racing this as best I can in the next WORS season and hope to live up to the precedent set by having the fujiwara tofu shop logo on the frame.

    All who visit this site and come into the SS forums are winners, everybody else.... losers.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    My single speed receives front suspension. In 8 years of riding and racing on single speed I never used suspension, so this is a first. Hopefully I will like it. The fork is a 2014 FOX 32 Float FIT 100 CTD with remote, so I can make it rigid with a push of a button.

    With the Lynskey carbon fork it was about 19.5 lbs, so now it will be 21 lbs.

    Hey Cool, that's My bike!!! It's on a serious Diet right now and since the rims won't be available until Spring 2014 I can't post pics but there will be a whole thread to it once it's done and so far on paper it's 12lbs. 4oz.

    I still beat the crap out of it over 3 years later but I wanted something really light so it's on a diet. I'm currently riding a Vassago Optimus Ti but it weighs 19lbs. 4oz. so I haven't posted pics.

    I don't think mine is the Baddest but it's My Favorite. She is on a Serious Diet until next Spring (2014 when the rims will be available). I still Love her! She has been really, really good to me and no matter where we are in the US or Canada people stop me and ask, Hey is that the bike from MTBR? Why yes it is.

    It's a 22x12 which is 1.83 to 1 and most people here run a 32x17 which is 1.88 to 1 so it's pretty close. I change it for wherever I am in the country. There is no 22x12 in the mountains. I run a 22x14 in Utah, New Mexico, Colorado and California. I wish I had taken it to Whistler this past summer. It is definitely going back with me next July.

    The Kona titanium no longer sports a suspension fork. Now it has a White Bros. Rock Solid fork and its been turned into a 69er.

    I like my wife's Niner more than mine!!!! I've changed a lot since these pics so I need new pics but here it was. It's now 16lbs. 10oz. with Middleburn cranks and ring, Pink Hope brakes, a Pink Chris King BB and carbon post and some other stuff. She LOVES it! Can't go wrong with Ty-Dyed Ti spokes and Pink nipples.

    How do you like the flow rims? Considering some but worried they may feel sluggish from the extra contact.

    No issues with them at all only put 200 miles on them so far. They can go faster than I can peddle.

    (Cross-posted in 27.5 forum) Took me a year to get it, but I think the wait was worth it. One of the last Vulture Cycles made as Wade has gone back to aircraft welding. I wanted something out of titanium for classic looks, ride, and durability with modern geometry and features. Here's what we ended up with:

    Frame: Custom Vulture 650b Titanium
    Fork: Fox 27.5 CTD 120mm tapered.
    Headset: Chris King Limited Edition Purple - 44mm tapered
    Stem: Chromag Ranger purple 70mm
    Bars: Chromag Cutlas Carbon 730mm
    Brakes: Hope Stealth Race M4 front / X2 Rear - 183mm rotors
    Grips: ESI Chunky black
    Seatpost: KS Lev 150mm 30.9; Chromag Purple QR
    Saddle: Chromag Moon
    Bottom Bracket: Beer Components PF30 EBB Purple (ebay find)
    Crankset: XX1 w/ 32t Bling Ring (increased chainline to 51mm to accomodate chainstays)
    Hubs: Chris King Limited Edition Purple Hubs 15mm front 12x142 Rear
    Rims/Spokes: Derby Carbon 40mm 650b / DT Swiss Comp / Purple Nipples
    Tires: Maxxis Ardent 2.25 rear / 2.4 front

    Geometry: 68 degree head angle, 73 degree seat angle, 15.9 inch chainstays, ~ 12.25" bb height, not sure on wheelbase.

    Nice Hammer Civilense.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    Man, super nice!!! How you liking it so far? I've only had mine out a few rides so far, due to poor weather but I'm in looovvee! Such a smooth rolling bike, and the belt drive was a pleasant surprise...What gearing are you running?

    Beautiful! This is how it's meant to look! I can't get my bike muddy because it never rains here... just super dusty. Plus I can't stand it when people put nasty ruts through our trails so I can't do it myself. :/

    Do the twisted tubes serve any function other than being different and identifiable? I don't care for it myself.

    They add a great deal of "stiffness" to the frame. We had a few oldschool Ti mountain bikes at the shop i work at and they all felt very noodley to me but we got in a few of those and they are far from it.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought the whole purpose of a Ti frame was to have some "play" and not be as still as aluminum and carbon.

    This thread title is a bit misleading...

    I don't see a whole lot of 'baddest,' I do see a whole lot of 'dandiest.'



    My P-Walter. No carbon fiber fairy bike here. Supertherm. Deity. Supernatural. ENVE. Chromag. Pacenti. MTX. Hope. DT. Brass balls...um, nipples to match the Portland Design Works brass trail bell.

    Puny Fox 32 that needs to be put on my sisters bike.





    No action shots because after 2 months of very, un-winter like BEAUTIFUL weather, I received my frame/parts. It snowed the next day :|

    Uh oh, goes right from call carbon fiber frames "fairys" to bragging about his carbon bars (he must be trying to tell us somthing) Then makes a joke about balls. AND hes got a bell on it. Yup definitely a fairies bike. (Not that theres anything wrong with that)

    Why you gotta put your sister down? Since shes a women the lighter fork is more sutied for her? I dont get you. I think you should be nice to your sister, who knows she might trade you one of her ex boyfriends phone numbers for that fork.

    Ha, I saw your post with the actual action shots, that's why I put my disclaimer up. BTW, I'm out near Gallup, we do need to ride sometime. Anyone who can (and actually will) patch a chainstay with a bracket and epoxy and hit jumps would be fun to ride with.


    SPP, I will have to check chain tension again. If I can loosen it a mm or two, it'll put me at <415 mm.


    For the record, 'carbon fiber fairy bike' refers to one that weighs less than my wheels + drivetrain.

    Awesome picture. Did a rock/log help you with the conversion?

    I've heard mention of 'res riders.' Usually in whispers or under the breath comments. Not sure of who's in it but I'm positive I've ridden with some of them. Friend of a friend or so and so knows...

    There are a couple of pretty decent trails on the reservation. Since they don't get a lot of traffic, they're oftentimes pretty soft (powdery/sink-in-deep dust), depending on weather. Much of the year, fat bikes are the way to go though we do have some very fun sandstone sections.

    I'll definitely hit you up when I'm in ABQ, new trails are always good.

    It got hung up on the mud some how. I think a big glob fell of the tyre and tangled it when i was.in granny gear so i just felt a little resistance then the hanger popped and after a quick trail.side.repair i was in the single.speed club. My sister.lives in chinle just north of gannado and theyran into the res.riders on a ride up there. Do they.do a lot of technical riding/ free.riding?
