    I built up a similar bike this winter.

    <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt=" photo photo.jpg"/></a>

    It is a trek 69 1 X 9 speed.
    Hayes Stroker Trail hydraulic disc brakes.
    Easton Haven wheelset
    Prologo Scratch Pro saddle
    Sram XO shifter and Rear D.
    Thomson Elite seatpost.
    Race face crankset.

    Weighs in at about 22lb. I've mostly used it on the road this winter/spring and its really fast.

    I love the 69er. So different and so fun to ride. It gets weird looks from people as well. It's the Only MTB I have right now and it doesn't bother me in the slightest. Glad to see some other people building and enjoying them as much as me!!! Enjoy!

    Wow! Three nice bikes, but the first two...holy smokes, guys!

    What does the SS weigh, wearing all that uber bling?

    Here's my recent rebuild. It's a year 2000 Trek 9.8 carbon converted to full rigid 69'er 1x10 with the fattest tires that will fit. I managed to go 29" in the front and still keep the original geometry. After doing a lot of research, I just accepted this frame is going to need a V-brake in the back.

    30T Raceface narrow/wide ring
    11-36 10-speed XT cassette
    Shimano Zee rear derailleur
    Shimano SLX cranks
    Shimano XT 180mm front disc brakes
    Avid rear V-brakes
    WTB Rocket V saddle
    29" Stans/Hope front wheel
    Lots of cheap carbon stuff from China - fork, stem, bars, seat post
    Leftover from the old build - 26" Mavic/XTR rear wheel, Time pedals

    It rides really nice!
