    FINALLY! .....

    My (second) Misfit Psycles diSSent 29er with matching fork. Frame is an XL. First time i've built a bike in a looooong while that wasn't built up as a weight weenie machine. Sits somewhere in the 23.something pound range of reliable singlespeed goodness.

    I want to play:

    Gen1 Sir9 powdercoated with Niner Carbon fork painted black. Flow rims, Niner Flat Bar and a nice edition to a full rigid is the Cannondale Flash 29er seatpost.


    If you look closely you might notice that I have 2 speeds. I have a 32 and a 34 up front and use the 34 as a bash in the hills. I have a 19 and 17 on the rear. I run 32-19 on the trail and if I want to take this bike on a run around town I can drop the rear wheel a little and swap the chain in 30 seconds and go from 49 gear inches to 58 gear inches. If you look very closely you will see a little sag in the chain, this is because it will be perfect on the 34-17 and a little looser on the 32-19. If you do this, you will have to adjust the chain on the biggest chainring and it will be a little loose on the smaller ring combo.

    I also have another SS that has a suspension fork that I can't swap the gears on in case someone wants to complain about my 2 gear bike.

    That's pretty handy! I was too dumb to realize how easy it is to change gears. Thanks for explaining it! haha

    I usually only go fully rigid for the winter, buy may just keep this setup year-round. I'm having a lot of fun with it even in the rocks of PA

    Yeah I love it,(but then again I have had it for less than a week) And yeah I use it off road, I bought it to be used off road mainly, because sometimes I crave the nimble feel of a cx bike on the trails. (already have a dedicated road bike)

    It is Creekside. And this bike has seen miles and miles at Felasco. Great trails.

    BTW- you have PM. We must be neighbors as this shot was taken less than a mile from our condo...

    I was trying to get in a few miles before December's blizzard hit - I got caught, but had a blast. It's a Karate Monkey, Salsa fork, Rampages tubeless and aired down.

    Sweet ride!

    How are those bars treating you? I'm thinking about a build along those lines. Can you ride on the hoods comfortably, or you in the drops all the time?

    Thanks!

    My Raleigh XXIX

    I've had FS XC racers, 29er hardtails with front suspension, and this bike. This one by far is the most fun to ride!

    I went with the 445. I bought the frame and stock fork used and later found the fork had a small dent in it. The Exotic 445 was the closest to the original fork size. Steering is super fast.

    I'll play along. This is my custom True Fabrication Bicycles 29er SS.


    The first two pictures show the diversity of the powder coating. It's an amazing bike.

    Nothing special

    A pic from this mornings 1.5 hour voyage along the snomo trail. Just a run of the mill Fisher Rig with a Bontrager carbon fork (pardon the photo quality, I only had my camera phone with me). This bike is soon to be retired however as I recently bought a Fargo frame. . . which leaves me in a predicament as I am still going to want a SS bike. I was never a good cyclist until I bought a SS, rigid, 29er. It is as though the bike taught me how to ride for the first time. You can't have more fun anywhere than you can on bikes like the ones in this thread.

    Thanks!

    Thanks!

    With the stem on in the picture I pretty much had to ride the hoods to be comfortable. Which was OK until it got steep and/or rocky. So I replaced that stem with a Ritchey 90mm 30 degree ride on. This made the drops the primary position, but the hoods are still comfortable.

    I have switched it back to a riser bar for now, just because the bike is seeing more mountain biking and less commuting/road. But I am keeping the drops and riser stem as I really like the feel and this may be my "around town" bike when we move to AZ in a couple months.

    For some special reason, our rigid bikes surpass all other technologies in providing fun ! It's simple, it's the rider and the trail.
    I, like you did, went through all the suspended and 26er bikes before settling on my rigid 29er.

    Curtlo nearly finished

    I love this thread, unbelievable activity and variety in what is a in itself a niche within a niche. So here's the replacement for my Singular posted way back, a Curtlo Mountaineer 29er built up Singlespeed, a custom frame that I bought used. The defining features are the curved seat stays and compact seat and head tubes compared to the top tube length. Size M-L if you wish and the steering is really quick with the 45mm rake Salsa forks.



    The reason for taking pictures was the new wheels: Flow rims on Royce hubs from the UK.
    High flanges, polished finish, titanium axles, a silent freehub and smoooth bearings, what's not to love?


    The SIngular was fiitted with a EBB, cleaner looking, but this works OK on the trail too.


    Next I'll be fitting some 2.4 tires and I may not be eligible for the "rigid" thread . Here's a last side-on shot.


    Enjoy!!

    Thanks, yeah I did a short ride on just on the creekside trail. Mine could use some christmas presents too I'm thinking tires, saddle and grips. Do you have kenda small block 8s? How do you like them, do you ever have traction problems on more serious trails?

    I love an SB8 as a rear tire better than anything. I am regretting, however, running it as a front tire. Plenty of grip on climbs and such at Felasco, but I need a more confident tire of front for railing turns.

    Just ordered a Maxxis Instigator for the front and will run SB8 out back.

    Looks like you have Nevegals on front and back. You have a PM proposal...

    I haven't been on any other 29rs enough to analyze and report the comparison, but I love my Jabber+ODIS and wouldn't trade it for any I have ridden so far.

    Gorgeous bike! What ratio are you using?

    Also, i really like your quote about your other bikes collecting dust after starting to ride SS rigid.... ...only those who ride SS rigid know.

    I run a 32 up front with a 20,19,18 or 17 out back depending on conditions, type of ride or race and time of year. Right now its set up with a 20 for the snowy conditions. I use mostly an 18 in the summer.

    I like this bike so much I am thinking about a fat tire SS for really extreme conditions. Next move is possibly selling my suspension rig.

    I'm pretty sure that your SS with a 17 out back has to fly ...super ! I ride a steel Jamis with a 33/20 all year long. I ride mostly dry and loose over hardpack with the ocassional baseball sized sections. I need the 20 out back because of those hills on every trail i ride. No such thing as flats on this island ! Besides that, i can climb all the hills that geared guys do, even where they need 22 x 34 i do on my 33/20. Isn't SS awesome !

    Funny as it may sound i sold my FS inmediately after getting my SS. I tinkered somewhat with the suspension fork it came with, until i decided it was useless to carry extra lbs for a rare commodity.

    Who knows, if i ever decide to have a road bike...it might as well be SS ! Love the workout !

    I run a 32 x 17 on my S.I.R.9 and never had any issues, although my trails are all moderate grades. The only time I would've liked to go to a lower gear was in the snow. I'm a firm believer that SS is the best option for mountain biking..period.

    I'm also a believer !! Having ridden geared hardtail and FS ... not forgetting SS rigid with coaster brakes as a kid ... no option surpasses rigid SS for me Plus, teaching and showing the virtues of this setup to other riders is quite fun too

    Well this is close enough I guess, this is my Fisher Sawyer built up as a fixed gear for winter training. The full coverage fenders and XR-1's are awesome on snow packed streets and in the slush. I'm thinking of taking her off road for a laugh in the spring. I'm not your average fixie guy, my daily ride is a 25lb carbon 6" bike, but they're great training bikes and make slippery winter rides much more exciting. She's starting to show a little surface rust, my ghetto rattle can clear coat didn't last long, I'm planning on stripping her down and putting on a more professional clear coat in the spring.

    The blob near the BB is my light's battery, wrapped in a sock, inside a plastic bag.

    just a little surface rust, no biggie, gives it character. The bike is a preproduction frame, thus the lack of paint. I gave it a quick rattle can clear coat job before building it but that's already starting to come off. As I said I'll be taring it down and re-painting in the spring. I'm hoping to find a good way to clear coat over the surface rust, I like the rusty metal look on this bike.

    Just picked up my 2011 Kona Unit 22" from a LBS yesterday.





    Had to add a little bling!



    I would like to raise the handlebar since the top of the bar is 3" below the top of the seat. Any suggestions at the following thread would be appreciated.

    Cell 29er SS HT

    I have pretty well finished my 29er build, its taken a few months to sort it out to my satisfaction, ended up converting 1x9 to single speed as I wasnt using the gears anyway. Its running magic gear at the moment, the half link made the chain length perfect, I have an EEB coming that I will fit when the chain stretches.

    Cell is an Australian made ally frame. I bought the bike built to spec with the XT upgrades & in 1x9. Added the rest later.

    Cell 29er Medium frame
    Niner carbon fork in nude
    Shimano XT 29er wheels
    Schwable Big Apples 28x2.35
    Crank Bros Stem
    Crank Bros Bars
    Carbon seatpost
    Specialized Toupe 143 saddle
    XT Brakes
    XT Crankset
    Crank Bros Egg Beaters
    Blackspire 42T Chainwheel
    Gusset 12T rear sprocket

    I dont think my legs are that strong! Its just that I live in a flat part of the world, the 13km I ride to work is 35m above sea level at the highest point and the biggest climb would be about 20m in one go - so its not hard to spin those gears!

    Had this posted over in the SS section but figured I could drop some pics of it here as well. Just a cheapie Moto frame.

    Yes, the cables need to be trimmed. Waiting for the parts to arrive to do so.

    17" Moto Outcast 29 frame
    White Brothers Rock Solid carbon fork
    King headset
    Ritchey WSC stem
    Merek carbon flat bar (need to order another bar now that I know the flat one is the one that fits best)
    ESI Racers Edge grips
    Hayes Stroker Carbon brakes
    KCNC rotors (w/ti rotor and caliper bolts)
    Plastic water bottle screws (don't carry a bottle so why not stick little plastic ones in there)
    KCNC seat post
    Fizik Aliante saddle (Smud carbon saddle is in the mail - 69 grams baby!)
    XTR m960 modded and ceramic coated cranks (by Crazy8 on here)
    Home Brewed 32t chain ring
    KMC x9SL chain
    Speedplay Frog pedals
    Velocity VXC rims
    DT competition spokes
    Brass nipples
    White Industries Eno hubs
    White Industries Trials freewheel
    Conti MK 2.4 tires (for now, when things dry out some, WTB Nano Raptor 2.1's tubeless)

    Bike weight currently is at 21.87 lbs. changing out the tires (going tubeless) and seat, I should end up somewhere in the low 20's. Still need to swap out the bar and get some new skewers. Might actually hit high 19's in the end....

    Looks great! Love the green! I would definitely rotate those skewer levers to point towards the rear. The last thing you want is to catch them on something.

    My 8kg or 17.5 pound JBC is a 1030 gram 26er frame with 29er wheels and fits cyclocross tyres depending where I ride. Its mainly a road bike though

    Very nice! Rigid but not an SS. I bet that baby is fast out on the roads or even on nicely groomed trails with the xc tires on it.

    I picked this leftover model up about a month ago and finally have her ready to ride. I added BB7s, Bontrager Rhythms from my HiFi, a Surly 20T cog, and the ODI grips. It weighs 26.3 pounds with pedals. I hope I like the rigid SS thing half as much as some of you guys do.

    Nice! I have one of those. You'll like it- those Units ride great for such an inexpensive frame.

    Spends most of it's days commuting at 65psi but occasionally I drop her down to 25psi and carve some trails.

    She has spent time as a 2x4 2x9 69er SS Always rigid and so far with the exception of the damn wheel moving SS has been the best.

    Is that Niner fork on the El Mariachi custom painted or is it the stock light blue color. I've been thinking about adding one on to my Salsa, but have been semi-worried that the colors would look kind of "off."

    Ahh...bicycle vanity!

    Since it doesn't say Niner down the side I would say it's custom painted.

    Thanks guys!

    Fork is custom painted. I was thinking about the "stock" blue niner fork but i wanted it to look as clean as possible so i went for a custom paintjob.

    gjenkins - my wife is 5'6" and rides a 16" Inbred. The TT is just a tad too long for her. Should have gotten her a 14".

    Hey, thanks for the reply. I just googled arond and several have noted that the SOMA TT is a little shorter than On One. Hmm ... maybe I should get her a test ride.

    You are right. 16" Inbred shows 589mm and 16" Juice is 576mm. Also, forgot my wife's Inbred is 26" wheeled. 29er versions don't have a 14" frame.

    Hello,

    Got this XXIX about a week ago from my LBS. No trails yet, but looking forward to it.
    Sorry for the camera phone pix.

    The Flight is an outstanding ride. Solid geometry and supple steel.......all that really matters in my book. The name on the down tube is secondary......

    Having a custom bike dosn't mean you enjoy the ride more,just means you have a custom bike

    I have a custom frame and several 'off-the-shelf' frames. They're all fun.

    Yeah man...that is a really sweet looking Monocog. I had one once, then went to a Niner EMD 1x9, wishing I still had the Monocog as a part of my stable. It was a smooth riding bike.

    I love Todd's swingers. I do think I'm going to try the new Paragon Rockers on a few CX bikes though just because the seem a little more elegant. But I do prefer the swingers on 29ers though, they're solid!

    It's Singapore. 16th floor. We do have trails here. I take the lift down, roll out of the estate and ride less than 2 miles to single track. No kidding.

    Its nice and stiff(But I weigh only 104lbs). Geometry wise, the 17 degree is a nice compromise between the usual flat bar and wide sweep bars. I have used it in two long races and after these races my wrists didnt complain at all.

    The bar doesnt like to flex much and is rather harsh though. I think the carbon version will be a nice upgrade if you like the alu version.
