    My wife says hers is...so that's that.
    The only regrets in life, are the risks you didn't take.

    Ebb is in order but right now it is sitting at 34/18 with near perfect tension

    The thing is a blast to ride and I am super happy with it so far

    What does it weigh in at? I currently ride an aluminum cannondale ss and think about adding another at times!

    I'll put mine out there.

    I know it's cool to hate Specialized right now, but there isn't too much to choose from in carbon.
    Stumpjumper SS carbon
    enve bars
    specialized stem
    specialized s works seatpost
    fizik tundra seat
    xt brakes and pedals
    nox am carbon wheels
    chris king hubs on sapim cx ray spokes
    specialized ground control 2.1 tires front and rear
    rockshox reba fork, although I prefer to run it with a specialized chisel rigid fork. But I broke my wrist 10 weeks ago and the suspension helps. Hope to be back rigid in a month or so.

    What fork is that? Curious why you didn't opt for a Truss?

    Well goes like this ,I had a diamond frame with this Jones unicrown fork my buddy had the space frame with truss fork we decided to trade frames but he wanted the truss fork.
    Its fine with me Ive ridden all the combos of frame and fork and I really like the way this one rides. Now if I had the chance to get a truss cheap I might do it. But im very pleased

    Actually I done think a lot of people realize just how good this fork rides. Ive tried 11
    different rigid forks over the last 15 years and ridden many more including the truss and
    the Jones unicrown is awesome!

    Thanks for the explanation, Dan. I used to ride on the older Jones unicrown fork that was made by Vicious Cycles, but now my wife uses it on her 907 fat bike. I asked because this is the first time I've seen a SpaceFrame without the Truss fork. At least it's a proper Jones fork on there, and it's cool that you like it!

    Please remind me: what exactly is it?
    I have Scirocco myself, but the setup is pretty urban at the moment.

    It's Banshee's "missing link" - the Scratch, 16-inch/large frame with 24's. For urban I simply swap tires to a pair of DMR Digger RT's. Heck, I've ridden skate parks with the Gazz's - you can still ride everything, just the airs get boring. I love that bike!

    I do wish I bought a Scirocco frame. The days of ultra cool bikes are numbered...

    Thanks! It's Reynolds 853DZB ( double zone butted ) tubing, with a Reynolds tapered steerer, 15mm maxle fork and Paragon Machine Works rocker dropouts.

    The original build is here: Pete’s XXXXXL custom SS 29er | Talbot Frameworks

    I had some alterations made to the seat tube ( replacing an aluminium shim with a brazed in steel sleeve, ), so had a respray done at the same time

    My Kona Unit in it's current form. Initially built it with a carbon fork, and I had it set up 1x10 for a hot minute. Getting ready to swap everything over to a Stooge frame with 27.5+ wheels. Will post when it's done.

    I got some fancy carbon downhill wheels and think I've finished my quest to build the baddest karate monkey.



    Only problem is the darn seat bag kept falling off on that ride. I don't think the velcro and humidity got along.
    Yeah I only carry cans cause I'm a weight weenie.

    Built up a Trek 69er myself last summer. Had been looking for one with a large frame for a long time, finally found a frame in perfect condition. Awesomely fun bike that is for sure! Business up front, party in the back!

    Here's mine:



    Don't look too close... it's a dinglespeed.

    Endless/Chris King cogs in the back, Ti Thomson handlebars with ControlTech bar end extenders pushes it to 770mm wide. Paul levers tied to Avid BB7 S brakes. DT Swiss / Surly wheels, Ti Manything cage under the downtube from King Cage. Gravity dropper, just for fun, and an OMM Rack for some international touring - I get on a plane on Tuesday for a month of touring in Iceland.

    I love USA-made components!

    Not mine. Average.
    Krampus, MRP Stage, Dirt Wizards on WTB Scrapers, on King Hubs (when not in bikepackng mode)...

    Krampus in single speed shred mode by Mike, on Flickr

    I can swap to a rigid fork and my Rohloff in about 20 minutes for bikepacking mode (just bought a Paul Thumbie so I can try 1x5 on the King hub). And I want to do a trip on the SS.

    Ton of room, the frame was designed for 27.5+ or up to a 2.5 29er. Fork will take 29+ no problem. I'll get some clearance photos up in a bit.

    Damn! Can someone make it so pics show tia.

    I'm running a 2:1 ratio of 38T vs 19T but thinking of jumping down to a 34T or even a 32T for true offroad as it's a killer at the mo.

    How easier off road will 34T if I leave the 19T sprocket at rear that is?

    32x18 seems to be the magic number for me. Can make it up 99% of the climbs but don't spin out too much on rolling singletrack or flats.

    The strap on my seat bag just wore out. I used parachute chord to secure it to the saddle. It has worked out so well I'm not even sure I'll bother putting the new bag on when it arrives in the mail.

    This is beautiful. Love this. I'm turning my old 'Pug Ranger' frame into an SS.
    Waiting for it to come back from the powder coater.
    If it looks half as cool as yours, I'll be happy

    21# even on my bathroom scale. Could easily get under that with new pedals as the ones on the bike are seriously heavy. And probably shave some more going tubeless.

    She's actually a dingle speed, high gear @ 38/14 for on-road trips and commuting, low gear @ 34/18 for the Dutch MTB tracks.

    Its a large timbuk2 pack. Contains the following:

    1 29x2.4 tube
    1 8mm allen key
    1 multi-tool w/ chain breaker
    4-5 spare chain links + quick links
    1 tire plug kit
    1 co2 + inflator

    The velcro was the only real weak link. I've since replaced it with a more minimal bag:



    It moves around more when I'm riding but carries the same kit. The latch should hopefully hold it on the bike better when it gets really humid. I wish it was just a tiny bit longer so I could roll it down more, and maybe stuff some foam rubber in the bottom to keep my allen key from banging on the seatpost.

    New bag, same park:



    This is where I got the new one Outer Shell Adventure - Rolltop Saddlebag
    Yeah I only carry cans cause I'm a weight weenie.

    It is a shame this bike didn't receive any comments as Raleigh are putting out some fantastic MTB and CX in the States. Shame none of them make it to the UK!

    A "badass single speed" doesn't have a geared rear hub with a bunch of spacers. Man up and commit with a dedicated single speed specific hub that 1. has wider flanges than 148boost. 2. makes a stronger less dished wheel. 3. Doesn't look like a scrap parts bike.

    Haven't posted yet, not very well staged, but for the time being I have nothing to change.

    ROS, medium, DT 350's to Flows with DT comps, XT crank, AB oval 32 chainring, Rockshox Pike RCT3 130mm, Niner low carbon bars, green Red Monkey gips with purple clamps, and I think those are all of the important bits! Maybe not the "baddest", but pretty bad in my opinion!

    Holy seat post and upside down handlebars! Recovering road biker with a short torso?

    No, I'm not picking on you, you gotta ride what's comfortable for you. I just look at that setup and imagine being cramped with a bent back and my knees hittin the gut/chest. Anyway, nice ride.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    Hahaha. I am recovering roadie, for sure. Only been riding a lot of MTB since moving to Idaho, the Bay Area is pretty much just jeep trails, and that is boooooring. My torso is pretty short, and this setup is really comfy. The bars are actually not upside down, that is how they were marketed by Niner. Many folks think they had the graphics installed wrong, and had to come up with something! I bought em because I wanted to try an "alt" bar, and these had 17mm of backsweep, and were only $80 at Jenson. Guess they couldn't sell them. If I want, I can flip them over, but so far this is super comfy!

    I'm sure not many care what you think about how they built their bike. People like you is the main reason I don't like a big portion of the cycling community.

    Fortunately, that kind of *****baggery seems not to extend to the SS community as much. (In my experience!). Dude does list a Trek in his sig though.....

    Thanks man! This replaced a chromag rootdown I converted to ss. Been wanting a n9 for a while and jumped on this one when I had the chance. Been really happy with it so far.
