    Here's mine, also my first 29er,. It started as a Diamondback Mojito, the seat, frame and pedals have been replaced, and I'm expecting brakes and cranks to turn up within the week.

    Here's my EWR OWB 29er on it's maiden voyage. Never mind the piece of shite hanging off of the shite hanger. I'm building an eccentric wheel for it.

    Fyi, if anyone is interested, this frame is for sale on Bicycle Sport Shop's eBay store. I thought it would be up before now. I would like it to go to a good home. I didn't get to really ride it at all. Only 4 times. My time was up and I had to give it back.

    part of the quiver,
    THe spot is almost brand new and has been alot of fun, but i am not sure how i like the stans tires. The side walls are pretty weak. Rolls great and are fast but but maybe not worth the price IMO for daily thrashing around, only time will tell. I have only had them for a month but, we will see how long they last. their kinda sensitive.

    Bike picnic are great every one should go on one

    Fun ride. Looking to upgrade this summer with CK hubs and Crest Rims with CX Ray spokes. Love the Bons. Just raced with a XDX rear and 29-3 2.25 frnt. Great hook-up. The 1x9 is as close as I can get to SS since injuries 2yrs ago. Paul Chain Keeper completes the task. Ti stem and seatpost also. Lucked up on them. Can anyone else spot anything one of a kind?

    Nice unicoi. I remember looking at those years ago. Couldn't find one used on ebay at a decent price. How does the soft tail affect pedaling?

    Not yet. I'd like to try it but don't want to spend money on a fork I might not like.

    Hey all just built up my first 29er HT. The best thing I ever did! Absolutely love the machine. I do not think I will be going back to the 26er any time soon.

    Started riding Ti hardtails three years ago when a friend let me borrow his Ti Diamondback SS for training rides. I loved the flex of the frame and how it absorbed a little of the bite on the trail, but it still threw me like a hardtail does on downhills and pitched around on climbs. The softtail definitely takes the bite out of the trail, along with the Ti seatpost and stem. The softail doesn't affect pedaling at all that I notice. The bike responds like a hardtail in climbs and flat accelleration, especially with the fork bar mounted lockout.

    Here's my Mary SS, converted to 1x9, and set up in urban exploration mode:



    Time will tell if the Gordo rims and Big Apple tires are useful or overkill.
    I came down with the flu the evening I got it finished, so I haven't had a chance to ride it yet. (sigh)

    My latest, all built up. It's a medium and tips the scales at 29lbs. Haven't gotten to ride it yet, the trails are just too wet! I have some new parts on this one that I am anxious to try.


    Only immediate change is that I am debating ditching the XT crank for a FifteenG! The XT is great, but I would like to have an all black crank, especially since I have some black brake levers on the way.

    I was worried bout that too. Originally I was going to get carbon fork to replace the heavy steel one it came with the bike. But saw a few reviews for the misfit fork and thought I would give it a shot for the price. I haven't hit any really technical trails yet but the fork does feel better then the old one that was on there. The Kona steel for was very harsh.

    My seat post is a Saso 27.2x400, I need 29cm out of the seat tube.
    My last bike was a cannondale scalpel, this one:



    Before, a Lapierre X-Race, before a trek hard tail (7000zx), the same as this one but with better parts: https://gallery.mtbr.com/data/mtbr/5...52_Resized.jpg

    I hade a Giant terrago to, and still having my old Diamond Back sorento.

    My new motobecane is my 1rst 29er, i baught it without testing any 29 ers bike before but i knew that it would be a very good choice. Also, the titanium frame is very very well built, very responsive and, at the same time, very comfortable. A lot of bike for such a small price.

    I've been eyeing those Fly Ti frames for a while. Definitely hard to beat for the price. Looks like you bought just the frame/fork and then swapped a lot of parts from your Cannondale. Did you order it from the states and have it imported? I bet that wasn't easy.

    Yes, i switched the brakes/crankset/shifters/bar/saddle and baught the frame and fork and the whellset. I ordered it directly with Mike from bikes direct 'cause i couldn't use my credit card and then he shiped it to Myus.com .

    It was taken part way up Mount William in the Grampians. It was actually a road ride, but a good climb nonetheless.

    Don't know how much you weigh, but if you're anything near 200, swap out that Pivit seatpost. The clamp area is so narrow I bent a saddle rail. It's also really noodly. I put on a Thomson and it changed the entire feel of pedaling sitting down.

    Howdy, dude.
    Interesting. I'm a skinny dude weighing in about 55 pounds less than 200. I eventually plan to swap out the seat post. As for now it gets the job done with no hiccups. Although I did crash once and the seat rails popped out of the saddle, also taco'd the front Laser Disc.
    Thanks for the heads up!

    There are some trails that are rocky and dusty, some are muddy... its different from one site to another. No, I havent had the time to get any pictures. I have been enjoying the ride I forget to dismount and take out my camera


    Here's a shot of the GLOW in the Dark paint of the AIR 9

    Bounty Hunter, that's a nice looking cross check. I really like the idea of wood chippers, but man those are some weird looking bars.

    Singular Pegasus large


    King hubs with White Crest rims/crossmarks
    Hope Headset
    FSA K-Force light cranks -ceramic BB
    Use Alien post and Fizik Gobi Saddle, Salsa pro-moto bars on Ritchy 90mm stem
    New Hope XC2 race brakes 160mm
    Switching between Niner carbon forks and Reba Dual Air 100mm depending on races

    20.3 lb as shown and raced at 18lb exactly with the niner fork and eggbeater 4Ti pedals

    Loving this frame and I intend to run it 1x9 when the trails dry up here in soggy UK. I also run a set of Hope road rimmed wheels for road club rides and will be Cyclo-X racing it next year. The BurlyCross bike.
    It's not Just a 29er it's a burley cross bike on steroids BurlyCross

    Laced to the Flow's with DT Comp's, they're very sufficiently stiff and the bearings spin beautifully. Looks like these won't give me any problems. Their customer service is great, by the way.

    My new Scandal

    Heres a picture of my new scandal.

    Built with leftovers from my 26" FS which had to leave because of the big wheels. I'm in europa so frames and wheels and so on are hard to come by, but I succeded in getting a decent setup for racing.

    Scandal British racing green 18"
    Fox G2 specific fork 80mm
    XTR front and rear shifters
    Formula K24 brakes
    Race face Turbine 42/29 cranks
    12/34 cassette
    Bontrager Rhythm wheelset
    Bontrager XDX tyres
    Cheapish carbon riserbar...

    Still playing around with position, gear ratios and tires. Right now I'm running tubes but later I'll convert to tubeless when I know which tyres to choose.

    Hope you like it, I do

    What is that integrated post/seat thingy? Custom? How much does that save? I like that.

    It's a carbon custom post/saddle combination. Friend of me made it all out of carbon with an SLR shaped saddle without padding. I like riding those harder saddles without padding, SLR or Flite and I am comfortable with riding. He made the correct angle and fore-aft position on the post and it works perfect. Weight is exactly 200 grams. So saving about 200 grams on an average saddle/post combination.
    Normal slr is around 180 grams and a post is quickly 200 grams (without going with the light stuff).

    Here is my new Niner EMD after its first ride ever. Thought I wasn't going to have it until next week but Tree Fort and Niner were able to provide me a Good Friday surprise.

    I can tell I am going to love this ride.

    Built this up the other day and had an hour on it yesterday.

    Initial impressions are very good.

    Its not anywhere near as bling as some of the sweet rides on here but does the job of putting a grin on my face which for me is the main thing

    Just waiting for the fork to arrive and this baby is ready to roll. I have dialled in the cockpit and controls using the rigid fork so it should be a case of install fork, measure steerer, cut, ride.

    Singular Gryphon

    Just got this all set up. Still working out the stem/spacers etc, then I will wrap the bars and cut the steerer to final length.

    Singular Gryphon w/Phil Wood EBB
    Salsa Woodchipper bars, Shaft seatpost and Flip Off Skewers
    Dia Compe levers
    Avid BB7 brakes 185 front/160 rear
    WTB Stout 2.3 front
    Exiwolf 2.3 rear
    Sun CR18/no name front wheel
    Mavic A719/XT rear wheel
    Brooks B-72 saddle
    36T Vuelta Chainring
    Surly 20T cog
    Cane Creek S3 headset
    No bling here, just a fun bike.
    This is my main mtn bike and my 1st real 29er!

    The 2nd pic is my other "29er". Really it's more of a 28er! 93 Diamondback Overdrive with a mish mash of whatever I had laying around to build it! Looks a bit different now, and has been relegated to commuter/trailer duty!

    2010 Lynskey Ridgeline build now 99% complete. Need to install a chainstay protector, MRP 1.x chainguide, clear cable rub protection & swap the Thomson 70mm for a 90mm model. It rides pretty nice...!
