    Just finished building my A9C for this season. Picked up the Cobalt 3 wheels and they look great (they're almost too "blingy" for my taste though) The Conti tires are also new for this season. Can't wait until it dries up around here. Love this bike!

    Try routing the front brake hose under the fork arch instead of over it. IMO it looks cleaner. But otherwise, straight back 'atcha....love it.

    Not recommended to route brake line under fork as it can get caught by the tire.

    And the other camp says if you run it outside the fork then brush or rocks snag it.

    Zip ties, yeah b-a-b-y!

    Rocks snagging a brake hose above the tire level? I could maybe see brush for certain off trail riders, but I have never snagged brush with a brake cable and don't really see where routing it under the fork would help that much. Not to mention that all manufacturers I am aware of specifically tell you not to do it.

    Front hose looks AOK to me but the rear needs shortening and then running between the front hose and the frame.

    With a suspension fork: Yes
    But with a rigid set-up: Don't see how, the brake line doesn't move. Certainly I've never had a problem.

    Zip ties break. Especially if you do snag the brake line on a bush. You do what you want, but the external routing is safer and I really don't see much advantage to the internal routing. Also, aesthetically, I am not seeing the advantages because the brake line then comes out the front of the fork right under the arch as opposed to slinking around behind the left fork leg and you have to use more zip ties so what is the beautification of that? Most rigid forks you don't have to use any zip ties to route the line since they have snap locks on the back of the left leg (eg Niner).

    I do the outside routing and take grief from the brush and "lay it down in the rocks and tear the brake hose". Either way, someone is going to tell you that what you do is wrong, and give you reasons to change it, no matter which way you route it.

    Slocaus, you give lots of sage advice, so I am sure it is an issue for you, but for me riding single track in the midwest USA this has never been an issue and I have never seen anyone around here riding your setup (although, most of the people around here think they need suspension forks and I have only rarely seen a rigid fork other than mine). I also admit that I do not ride rigid all the time being an old guy.

    Thanks for the advice guys! Some I'll use, some I won't, but I appreciate it all. Agree that the rear line needs to be shortened for sure!

    I have one ride one it so far. Felt real nice. No super nice/ killer.
    John Caletti lives close to me and I saw one he had done before. So we met up for a quick ride around the corner with a lot of conversation about how my 20 year old wicked rode and felt, what I like about my Santa Cruz xc carbon bike and what I wanted in a new 9er. I also spun his bike for maybe 1/2 the ride.
    So later I brought my bikes to his shop and we measured them and came up with this.
    Originally we were going put on a fox up front, but after switching back and fourth from squish to rigid on my wicked I figured I better go rigid with options. Really glad I did. 20.4 lbs as you see it. Less than 20 on my bathroom scale at home.
    Titanium bars and seat post.

    So this is setup with taper head set and if I need gears I can swap out the right drop out and stick on a derailler and cassette. cable guides are there as well.

    Single speed with options.

    Ah... one of the good looking Jones frames (not a Space Frame fan).

    Why the Fatty up front? I know lots of people do it but I've never understood why? Both yes.. one, no (scratches his head in confusion). ;-)

    I had a severe shoulder injury almost 2 years ago. I decided at that point that rigid probably wasn't the best thing for me, even though I love riding rigid. I have to think about long term damage to my shoulder repairs.

    The bike I had after the accident was built around a 100mm Fox, which was super plush. However I still kinda missed the SS climbing benefits of a rigid fork. So I tried a fat front setup and to my surprise it was as plush as the Fox through rooty sections. Still feels like a rigid fork at times when landing jumps and dropping off logs/steeps. So with fat front I discovered that I had the plushness of a 80-100mm fork where I wanted, yet still steers and climbs like a rigid fork. No pressure to check or bushings to replace. Throw in the major benefits the tire has in cornering traction and gripping roots on off-camber trails, I was sold.

    I thought about a full fat SS too, but honestly gears just go with the whole fat bike dynamic. Plus slow speed, tech stuff with a fat tire and SS might get a little cumbersome. So I built this up and plan to build a 1x9 full fat bike over the next couple years as a second bike.

    Love it. Took mine a long long long technical AM ride yesterday. Something in the realm of 5000ft of rocky, technical descents. Held its own with a brace of 6" travel AM bikes, they may have worked a little less to get down but we both had just as much fun. Wish I had the nate on mine now. I appreciate the larry but that just looks so right!

    Glad you got this sorted and rolling. You are going to love it!

    Things you are missing: RIGID. There is a thread called post your hardtail 29ers or something I think. Search it out, you will get a lot less grief.

    There is also a weight weenie forum to which you should post this, they will be speaking your language.

    I don't mind the flats, as they are also my pedal of choice...but, I did wonder about the tensioner as well

    I simply can not get my mind around this. I would have had to hit the rim regularly to be even close compared to my Reba.

    But of course.

    Man, my experience is so different. It was rigid. Period. It felt like a great big tire on a rigid bike. Traction was not any improved over a decent knobby on trail of various slipperiness, but not roots, however. This is with a Larry, I imagine Nate is a much different animal.

    No doubt about that. Really teeny gears.

    Just took my studded rear tire off (Gazza Extreme) and setting up for the rest of the year. Do have a Maxle Grande fork and wheelset setup for races this year so this will be what I ride most of the time for the season.

    Put new grips on to try out and got ride of the horrible rim strip in favor of Stan's tape with valve.

    No that is a Bonty big sweep it is almost the same but I got it for only $10 so I could not say no. I plan on a carbon salsa in my future.

    These are some awesome bikes. The simplistic frames and huge wheels (especially fat tires) make the bikes look really different from the usual 29er that is all gadgeted out.

    Poland. They make bikes and mopeds since 1948.
    Romet bikes aren't inspiring, but after modifications my Romet is really nice. Straight from the box it looked like this:





    There was RS Tora, crappy wheels, and 3x8 drive. Bike weighed ~14,5 kg.
    Frame after repainting weights 2370g with dropouts

    Nothing fancy. Buddy sold me the frame, fork, seat post, wheels and headset for a song. So I threw some misc parts on it and made it a awesome townie. Needs a different stem, and there's plans for new cranks, bars, brake and seat.

    Freshly Painted

    Here's one that I just finished painting. Could be my favorite ridged 29er... until I re-pain mine anyway.

    This is a bit of an in memoriam for the Sawyer.
    It's going soft once the fork comes in the mail.
    My Spot and it were getting so similar that the only logical thing was to either sell one or upgrade one.

    So I did the most logical thing and am changing one.

    Before you complain that I'm going soft on a bike, realize that selling one would be n-1 which is mathematically impossible when it comes to bikes.

    After years of riding rigid I just built a frame up for a 120 fork.... I might even put gears on it someday.... Maybe. I like the Sawyer though. You should puit the fork on the spot.

    I agree, the sawyer has so much flow with that beautiful tubing, I would put the fork on the Spot.

    Thanks! I love those jones bikes. I always though the diamond frame with the truss fork would be the one I'd get. is that the XTR 980 or 985 set up SS? always wondered about chainline on the 985.

    Who makes a 29er singlespeed frame that is not suspension corrected? I killed the headtube on my old Raleigh XXIX, which had great geometry. I might just get another one, but I would rather get something lighter and with shorter chainstays. I'm only running 2.1 tires, so maybe a cross frame would work.

    There are some fancier bikes on this thread but here's my XXIX, It came to me stripped to the steel so I had it powdercoated matte black. I'll post up more pics soon, probably one of the drive side to prove it in fact belongs in this thread

    Here's mine. Nothing too fancy, just 2010 Kona Unit with Flow/CK wheels.

    Ghisallo Wheels

    I'm really good looking.

    Agreed very clean. I should post mine, my Inbred, looks almost identical.

    I'm assuming he used a master link and one of those chain hooks, but even then, still pretty short.

    There are a few millimeters left in the dropout.
    It's very close, but I can still take out the rear wheel without problems.

    Here it is, my new to me SS MTB! It is a Cannondale Trail SL3 29r single speed. My introduction to SS...coming from a plush Specialized StumpJumper FSR 29er....<br />
    <br />
    <br />
    <br />
    Currently at my LBS getting "the once over" before I take her out.<br />
    <br />
    On it is:<br />
    <br />
    FSA Big Fat Pig 1.5" Headset<br />
    Bushnell Featherweight EBB<br />
    Sinz BMX Comp BB<br />
    Shimano Alivio Hydraulic Brakes<br />
    33x20 Gearing (I believe) (Also have an 18t and chain)<br />
    Velocity Blunt SL 29er Rims<br />
    32 Hole DMR Front Hub<br />
    32 Hole WTB Rear Hub w/American Classic Internals<br />
    Tubeless Maxxis Ardent 29x2.4 Tires<br />
    <br />
    (and yes, the front tire is flat in the pic, pic taken by previous owner, I'll post some more after I finally get a ride on it, hopefully in the next couple of days weather dependent)

    Wish it was mine. I am making the move from my old Kona 26HT, she still has a place in my heart. But moving to 29er. Getting a FS, I think Transition, and going to build a SS.

    I want this frame as well. Thought it might be legit, or maybe an Ebay CF that someone put Bezerk on.

    Any help out there on the origins of this bike?

    As TR said, it is probably a generic Chinese frame. It is not an FM056 which has flatter chainstays and a more smooth transition between the top and down tube.

    I would google around in images and see what you find. I found several in just a minute.

    This one is close:

    Apology not necessary, but a Sawyer vs. P-29 review is demanded!

    Fisher and Ritchey were two of the original innovators of rigid steel balloon-tire trail bikes and these are their current efforts. Spill it!

    OK, the Ritchey frame is more expensive and uses a carbon fork, but still...

    I recently moved to AZ and exploring all the fun trails in the area.

    What is the ideal gearing setup? The idea of a SS is kind of intriguing.

    Hey Jimms, I can answer that for you, as it's my bike

    It's a Hong-Fu HF-053 frame and since that shot was taken, I've added a Niner carbon fork. The Bezerk branding is a friends bike brand. He's been building frames for years and I thought I'd use my frame for a bit of advertising. He thought about importing a few of these frames and building them up as complete bikes, but has since changed his mind.

    My bike is now 12 months old and still going strong. It's light and fast. I wish I could ride as fast as this thing wants to go! Current set up weighs in at 7.8 kg's.

    Glad you like it. Cheers.

    Depends on your terain. Where I ride the SS, we have few long hills, and no really steep ones, so I'm 32T front and 16T rear. Ideal, as I can keep up with my mates on their geared rigs most of the time

    tcortez371 gearing depends on your conditioning and where you ride also if you ride 26 or 29er. Generally, a 29er will use 2 more teeth on the rear than a 26er all things else equal. Gearing for a 29er on dirt generally runs from 32x17 to 32x22 depending as I said on terrain that you ride and your legs. I would start with a 32x21 on a 29er or 32x19 on a 26er and then adjust accordingly.

    Where do you live?

    In FL I ran 34:17

    In AZ and here in PA I am 32:20.

    Really depends on your trails...

    I agree with the others. I run 32 up front and the majority of the time 18 in the back. However, I also run a 17, 19 or 20 depending on where I'm going. For most of my riding here on the north face of the Alps the 32:18 works really well for me.

    They do.
    All you need to do is buy the BB30 model and then run a Beer EBB.
    That is what I have done here:

    Beer EBB worked perfectly and all the reviews I have read reflect this.

    Trimmed the herd (n-2) so I'm rolling one of our demo bikes at he moment...

    Since the photo was taken I've swapped out the cog to an 18t, and swapped to slightly narrower rubber as the 2.4s don't allow for much slider adjustability...

    Waiting patiently for n+1 to arrive, hopefully be end of the year

    Add another voice to the throng. I have a BEER EBB on my new Retrotec Triple and love it! It's so smooth and doesn't squeak. Even better, I can generally tighten it with my hand so it's not a huge ordeal when a new chain stretches.

    Just finished this today.

    Just posted this in another thread. Things I like:

    steel.
    singlespeed
    rigid.

    Kinda scared to trail ride with it because I like it so much!

    ^ how long is your wheelbase? I see a lot of gap between rear wheel and seat tube.

    May or may not kick as*, but it is not a single speed.

    RIGID, not "ridged" or "ridgid"
    PEDAL, not "peddle." Unless you're selling stuff

    Nope, it's a 1x1 with 650B wheels. Baby monster truck for my wife.

    Here is my new single speed. Sold the Salsa last winter and regretted it... ended up building a Sir9.

    Nice! Just like my brother in law's. What Salsa did you switch from? I was recently looking for SIR9 v. El Mariachi reviews.

    I had this NOS El Mariachi before:



    I think the Sir 9 rides a bit better, but they are both really nice bikes.

    Stock at the moment. Plan to shave some weight with little bits of carbon here & there. This thing is a whole pile of fun.

    My new Triple and our two Retrotec household

    Here are some pics of my new Triple. I've been chatting back and forth about this bike with Curtis for a few years. I finally pulled the trigger and the bike was done exactly as I'd envisioned and finished within a week of when Curtis told me when I ordered it. It rides incredibly well and I think it (IMHO) looks fantastic!


    Simple drive side shot.




    We're now a 2 Retrotec household. This is my wife's Classic (not rigid...sorry)and my Triple outside our house.

    More pics here if you're interested. Retrotec Triple 2012.09.28 - a set on Flickr
    I built this up with Groovy Luv Handles, Salsa stem/post, Brooks Swift Ti saddle, my old Truvativ Noir carbon crankset, some wheels I built for the bike using Chris King hubs (singlespeed rear)/Sapim CX-Ray bladed spoks/WTB rims (which have worked out fantastically), XO brakes (still need to shorten the hoses), King cages and Problem Solvers BEER PF30 EBB.

    WOW, really nice bikes.

    A bit frosty outside.

    Niner SIR9 with all-carbon front end (except the wheel!). What an amazing ride:
