    Chameleon

    I love all the ti and carbon (I really do,) but if you are defining "baddest" with a "I can ride over anything" definition, then I'd humbly mine up against anyone's bike. It's a little blingy in appearance, but the parts were chosen for lightness and durability as well. I have a 130 Magura up front, which might be my favorite fork I've ever ridden.

    Another Inbred! She's almost perfect. Some lighter tires (Thinking Specialized Captain up front and Fast Trak out back) and lighter/better chain when those wear out should put it around 22lbs (with eggbeaters for racing). Don't think I'd want it much lighter. So much fun to ride. You can see my old On-one fork in the back...the Niner is friggin amazing!

    Bad? Ain't gonna claim that. Fun? Oh yeah!

    Weight weenie factor = 0/10
    -probably around 33#

    $Bling$ factor = 3/10
    -Scrounged wheelset/cranks/BB/BB7s from sold GF Rig. Other parts were C-list, Ebay deals found over a 4-month search/build. (Might knock it up to 4/10 with the recent acquisition of a new KS uppy-downy seatpost)

    Does what I like = 9/10
    -Built for a 250# hack to go fast over bumps/jumps. Easily passed the test by hanging tough over 10 days this summer riding the lifts at Trestle Bike Park (Loved the comment from the younguns: "SS/29er/HT, how do you ride that here?" "Um, I just point it downhill & hang on."). Great beast for the several chunky shuttles done, but it ain't made for those long climbs when I have to earn my way up....but hey, I ain't built for that either.

    Thanks! I'm not too proud to admit that I went out to the garage a few times just to stare at the bike on the stand for a minute or two.

    What does that safety wire actually do?

    Yes that's correct...I wouldn't expect the bolts to come loose, but Shimano put holes in the bolts and they supply a length of wire for that reason.

    Ditto on that. So simple and elegant. Only wish the dude was closer and I could justify $2,500 for a frame...

    If your bike kicks your ass and you come back for more with a smile on your face ride after ride, then you have the baddest single speed.

    ^now based on that logic we all have the baddest single speed. At least in our own minds. Because we all have cycling friends who simply are unable to ride said SS!

    StJoe..right now, 34t up front, 18 in the back... but I am going to switch it out for something a bit more manageable for the trail/climbing.
    I just finished the build, and haven't had a chance to trail it, but I hope to this weekend. She's a bit front heavy ... but it should be a lot of fun.

    Currently building some new wheels. DT 240s to some Arch EXs, DT Revolution spokes. I'll post pictures when those are finished.

    No longer the only rideable MTB in the stable, but still the highest grins-per-pound ratio.

    Then that's a big plus on steep climbs. Bet it has loads of front end traction
    and feels like a 100mm fork.

    I'm running my carve pro at 36x19 in the foot hills of Missouri. It's not an
    ss but it's where I stay 90% of the time.

    Let me know how it does will ya?

    I can't decide between my 26" Santa Cruz Chameleon or my Kona 2-9 29er. Mine are still the best. And i'm still faster on the Chameleon.

    This is mine, not quite done, but getting there.

    Ebay Carbon Bars (riser)
    Flyxii Carbon Fork
    On-One Lurcher Carbon Frame (18")
    FSA Pro Carbon Team Issue cranks
    Magura MT4 Brakes
    Planet X 3d forged seatpost
    Race Face Diabolus2 stem
    FRM Sealed Headset
    Token Sealed bottom bracket
    XT hubs front and rear
    Sun Inferno 23 rims
    DT swiss double butted spokes
    Alloy nipples

    I am sure I am forgetting a lot. I haven't shortened the rear brake cable as I am waiting for the front adapter and want to shorten them both at the same time.

    Next on my list is a nice wheelset, something light...

    Who has the baddest singlespeed?

    Baddest? I think I have a candidate for one of the worst singlespeeds on the trails. Currently:

    Ibis Tranny, large
    Hylix rigid carbon forks
    Ibis alloy stem, Ti bolts
    KCNC plug
    Easton EC90 bars, KCNC foam grips
    Formula The One brakes
    Reset Ti BB, Middleburn cranks
    Alloy spider, Rotor 34T Q-Ring
    XPedo Ti/Ti pedals
    Hiflex carbon seat post
    Selle Flow saddle
    Discontinued American Classic 26" SS wheels
    Rocket Rons running tubeless
    Ti bolts for rear, some alloy skewer for front
    AiRotor 2 discs
    Some alloy 18T cog
    Some chain that was laying about

    Who has the baddest singlespeed?-imageuploadedbytapatalk1373601640.490740.jpg

    There's some bling, but with the 26" wheels you have to be really active on our technical trails. 29er seems to be the comfortable option for full rigid.
