    It comes in just under 23lbs. Not bad for a steel bike with Flow rims.

    I wanted to use a full ENVE cockpit/rims, as well as a different saddle..But reality set in that I was already going pretty much balls to the wall. I may change a couple minor details for this race season.

    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.

    The baddest single speed is the bike that gives it's rider the most fun. In my opinion.

    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?
