    69er Gallery

    i think there are enough of them here









    mine is not made as a 29er

    it's the first custom made singlespeed frame that i bought

    i tried to sell it but nobody wanted it

    maybe because it was to expensive and has not enough space for a bigger than 1.9" rear tire

    but it is built for 80-100mm forks

    so i built a 420mm pace rc31 in it that was laying around

    the fork is that much too short as the 29er wheel is to big

    because i didn't wanted to build a new rear wheel for the bike i took the one with the white eno in it

    so i can change headangle and bottombracket height if i want

    Good to hear. After having built a 29er, converting my 26er to a 69er is going to be my next project. I'm going to use the same fork, a Pace RC31 although the CT model. Nice to see a Wiesmann. A friend of mine used to race in the Pirate Team way in the days. My conversion is a winter project, but once completed I'll posts pics.

    here is a pic of the Surly I have been rockin' lately. Love the way the 69'er rides, but for overall getting down to buisness I love full 29's, but that is a personal preference. The 69'ers are incredible in their own special way. Love it, JC

    I'm going this route too with a Zion frame I received in exchange for a Sam Adams Sampler 12 pack.

    Just need a few more things for it though. Specifically a rear disc 26" wheel and a front disc 29" wheel.

    El Chucho I made the jump!

    Im building a XL El Chucho from the parts left over from my RIP 9.
    I loved the RIP 9 but I had to make the jump to longer travel, stiffer frame, and slacker HA.

    RIP RIP 9

    69er rider for 3years soon, will have to take some pics tomorrow.

    1. Rocky Mountain Element, 100mm travel ran with 165mm length but no where near as slack angle wise as Robkhoo's was a bit worried about frame failure.

    2. On One 456 with the standard 26" forks in the front, but it's a tight squeeze and needed to modify the On One steel forks cutting the steerer tube down at the bottom, which sticks down abit, Carbon fork soon though.

    It's my prefered method of riding, mainly cause I think a 29" wheel in the rear wouldn't last long with me on it and there to expensive / hard to find in the UK to replace all the time.

    Both bikes run as a 26er when it gets muddy.

    wheres the rest

    lets see the frame gabe. it looked like you had most of the tubes in the pic set. just rear to go ! Mine is the first 69er paul has built, as i was the first person to ask him for one. I really like mine. i will be taking mine to northstar in tahoe in a couple weeks. Should be awesome.. btw mine has a 120 mm fork on that 29er wheel . rolls over everything and drops into everything so far .
    can't wait to see your project as frame and then finished.

    Here's mine. Is it a collectors item yet? Still the most fun bike I have ridden. The beast will climb most anything. It's a lot better bike than I am rider!

    i've got to dig out this thread.
    had that frame laying around for more than three years, after about 2 years of use, because i did some pretty stupid mods and ruined it more or less. i then switched to vintage mtbs and was more than happy with that.
    last year i acquired a cheap on one 456 frame on ebay and got interested in modern bike technology again.
    i always wanted to rebuild that gt frame as it was the first proper frame i ever bought, meaning at my local dealer for almost the full price.
    three months ago i finally had THE idea and started to lool for parts. yesterday it got finished and i love it.
