    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 awesomely!

    Hard to believe, but this is my 7th Season on the Sugar 293...

    Of course, it's not the only bike I ride which has helped with the longevity of it.

    that part of the trail looks like it is just east of Flagstaff somewhere if my memory of AZ is correct.
    That coconino looks great!!! And so do the trails up there. I just moved from prescott to Idyllwild, But in know that i am going to get back to AZ for some fun times. I think that AZ, besides most of the staunch GOP members, might be the best state.

    one of the first 29er forks, don't know what its called. When I got the KM it was Manitou or White Brothers and there was a huge difference in both performance and price, luckly I knew a guy who knew a guy, so $400 later...before I was riding it fixed and rigid, big improvement. I've only had to rebuild in once, though anyone who has sent their fork to White bros. will tell you, it took 2 trips to get it right. but it still works as good today than it did when I took it out of the box.

    I have been hunting for one of those for a while now. The only 29er fork with an a-c distance short enought to run on my 93 Diamondback Overdrive with out totally messing up the geometry.

    If you ever want to sell it, let me know! I would be happy to take it off your hands!

    For the lazy readers I would say that every biker I know that tried it, never went back to the "normal" saddles, even womens love it, and there are 15-17 bikers in my club that are currently using it. Its a basic concept.. sit on your bones and not on your balls.

    Many bikers say that this saddles are ugly, but they say it too about 29ers... In spain we say that opiniones are like the ass, everone got one... but mine got no problem to sit down after a long mtb ride. The most suspicious bikers say that the pro's dont use them.. but is for legal reasons, because the UCI doesnt allow saddles that are so short, but referees doesnt take much attention to it here, at least in mtb races.

    I started using them 2 years ago, after a 3 day and 10h/day ride that my ass alot. A pal told me about them, because he had same problems and the doctor recomended them.. and past october he had a daughter. I have ride since then 2 o 3 time in a normal saddle and the difference is huge. Normally takes 3 or 4 rides to get used to the new position, because the legs are more close and the position is like if you where skiing at high speed. Going down the hill is more conftable too, because nothing can hurt your balls.

    I think they are not sold in the USA, only in Europe, and the cheapers are about 45€:
    http://www.espaibici.com/catalogo/pr...dc=148_150_156
    http://www.espaibici.com/catalogo/pr...dc=148_152_159

    The thing that I like more of them, is that when your in a hard climb, like 20-30%, you can sit in the front of the saddle, with no "nose" getting up your ass

    PD: Sorry about my english grammar, I'm still learning

    The wife and I on a ride in Massasoit Park in MA. Our maiden ride together with our new bikes. She has a 1x9, I am rocking the SS.



    Sorry no photo. See profile. I am computer stupid but sort of bike smart. A little. Maybe.

    Duh. How did I miss this tread, 29er bike picture whore that I am?

    <a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/4PkeVhLy-3bCTxlVTuiNvw?feat=embedwebsite"><img src="https://lh3.ggpht.com/_rrYqLPGLdY4/S7wR6UQhD8I/AAAAAAAAHKQ/0ytQ58pPSTc/s800/P4061278.JPG" /></a>

    Nice collection you have!
    What did you do with the inbred's slot dropouts? I suppose you turned it into sliding dropouts; but now the axle of the rear wheel must be 1cm lower. How does this affect the riding? Can you post a closer photo?

    Thanks, four purpose built that handle road to chunk. I do like them.

    The Inbred is a 2006 that came with sliding dropouts, there were two right sliders, one SS, one with a derailleur hanger.Here is a picture with a TomiCog in fixed mullet mode - V-brake rear and disc front.

    <a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/1h2bpScAbyVmRkjqRfP3sw?feat=embedwebsite"><img src="https://lh6.ggpht.com/_rrYqLPGLdY4/SRW54xN57NI/AAAAAAAAAgI/aHS9lKwi6tQ/s800/P3150206.JPG" /></a>

    It has lived most of its life as an SS with the On-One carbon fork. When the Rita came up for sale the parts bin turned it into the HT you see.

    This WILL be my first '29er'. Yea, it's a hybrid, but it has served me well as a city/path bike. I just put some 40c TransSprint tires on it and hopefully it will be ok on some easy trail riding this weekend.

    Original 7300fx frame, fork, saddle, and seatpost.

    Full XT otherwise except for Deore cranks. Rings might be a bit aggressive at 26/36/48t but again, it's intent is for beginner level off-roading.

    Mavic T520 rim / XT hub 32 spoke wheels will hopefully handle any abuse. Origin 8 SpaceBar and ergo grips make it a comfortable cockpit on pavement. Will need to see if that also applies off it.

    My '08 GF Mamba. Absolutely love it. It's nice to be able to ride anything in my area (west Chicagoland) like Saw Wee Kee, Palos, etc. on a 'budget' bike.

    Upgraded stem, bar, pedals, grips, chainstay guard.
    Eventually I would like to get a better fork, avid 7's 185 f/r (I'm 6'3 200lbs and burn up these brakes), seatpost/saddle, and a 2 ring + bashguard crank. Any advice is greatly welcome. Oh yeah, the reflector has to be on there since this is my commuter to work and the cops around here are super anal.

    I posted my Inbred in other threads, but I just recently went to drops and a rigid fork. I'm also dropping two teeth in the rear cog. Love this bike.

    I noticed your comment about switching to a 185 front rotor. I am riding the 2010 x-cal and I gotta tell you that the 185 rotor on the front is worth it. I am a 200# rider and I have noticed what an improvement that big rotor upfront makes. For the money might be the best quick upgrade

    29er trail bike

    Medium '10 Salsa Dos Niner (I'm 6'2" with 37" inseam)
    '10 Reba SL @80mm
    King/Flows + Ardent 2.25 and Crossmark 2.1
    '08 XT brakes
    Sunline V-One 710mm + ODI lock-ons (first ride: amazing!)
    Ritchey 120mm X 30d stem
    Eriksen ti post + Fizik Gobi
    Stylo 1.1 with 32/17 "magic gear"

    Bought and built up the frame last weekend and discovered it was a M instead of a L...so on went high wide bars and a layback post. First ride was amazing, so I'm gonna buy some X9 parts for a 1X9 build.

    I scavenged the wheelset and brakes from my main ride (SIR9 SS) but this thing is so much more capable, I'm not sure what the SIR9 is good for anymore (I guess I'll go rigid with it).

    Rear plushness is impressive thanks to the 1" Relish shock, 29er wheels, 18" scandium stays, tubeless set-up, ti post, and Fizik saddle with "wing flex" and ti rails. I can sit and crank, or stand and hammer. I've owned nice HT and FS 29ers, and this bike's combo of momentum and grip is simply awesome. And the DH bars make it a blast!

    New question here.

    We have the same bike and rims actually

    Are you running tubeless? I ran the MK's tubless and they flex like crazy started rubbing against my lefty and the chainstay.

    Stalls, I thought that view looked familiar, and I see you're from Missoula as well. I rode up Sentinel for the first time this season a week ago, but turned around near the top because it was still muddy. Great time to have a new bike, a lot of trails are in super condition! I looped 24.1 down 517/spring gulch today and there are a lot of wildflowers that have popped up in the last few days! I saw lots of Trillium and Glacier Lilies.

    The Green Giant

    XXL Stumpjumper FSR expert 29'er with lots of goodies.

    It's nice to have a bike that "fits" The bike in the background is my 97 Stumpy Pro Hardtail. I think the largest they made frames then was a Large.

    The new bike weighs 30.10 lbs.
    King Hubs
    Stans Flow Rims
    Joplin drop post
    Crank Bros Acid Pedals
    180mm XT cranks
    X-9 shifters and rear
    Avid CR brakes

    She was built to carry my 6'6" 240lb but without breaking.

    I'll put up some impressions next week.

    Thanks Prez. Seems weird but I like the bike so much that I'm taking it with me to work. Looks killer in the back of my truck.

    Be well

    What type of air pressure were you running when you experienced the tire flex?

    Feeling pretty outclassed as there are some really beautiful bikes listed in this thread! Here is my new build anyway. I was looking for something between a mountain, hybrid, and cruiser.

    Thanks, it started as one of the ebay 29ers that I'm sure everyone has seen (there are a few in this thread). I took all the stickers off everything and all the parts of the frame and got clear brown painted over the silver to make a really dark rootbeer (the painter masked the logos on the head and seat tube but we covered over all the text. From there I kept all the components but replaced the tires with Schwalbe Fat Franks and the seat with a Brooks B-17 in honey. I took some cruiser bars and cut them down a bit then installed them upside down. I replaced the grips with some cork ones and also got some goofy anodized blue value stem cover things to match the blue on the tires. I really wanted to built up a 29er cruiser with coaster brake and more traditional styling but where I live there isn't flat ground for 20 miles in any direction. I will be sticking to the roads but I need gears to get around here.

    First singlespeed, first rigid, first 29er, first tubeless... sold a nice Cannondale hardtail and a really nice carbon roadbike to build up my dream bike... or at least my realistic dream bike.

    Are you braking while taking the pictures? If you don't you need to readjust them. In your photos the torque arm on the caliper is advanced. The torque arm should return completely when the brake lever is released.
    Happy riding!

    My Mama

    Here she is pre-ride Saturday morning:


    I think that she's getting pretty close too final build. Weight was 29.45 after swapping stems post ride. Have a Geax Gato 2.3 on order for the front and them will swap the Sagauro to the rear. XT cassette and a new saddle will round it out. Love this bike more and more every ride. Hands down a better ride over my HeiHei! Being a clyde, I am hoping to get it around the 28lb mark.

    BTW, put the QR lever on the other side otherwise you'll risk burning your hand on the rotors when using it.

    Nice setup, so 2x5 is it? Guess that is a VV? (If SRAM 2x10 is XX).

    Post it up with the drops too.

    Thanks slocaus! Yeah, 2x5 (or DosV) at the moment. I just dropped off two spiders from 11-34T cassettes at laynemachineworks.com to have them machined down on the back side so they'll fit the 240s SS bolt on hubs. So it'll be 2x6 soon (17-34T). I've got two sets of wheels all built with DT 240s hubs. Semi's/Big Apples for road, Gordo's/WWLT for trail. Trying to make it as clyde proof as possible Been enjoying the ride!!!

    My Mama

    I bought this frame from bikepartsexpress.com (Sage Cycles) on the cheap, and built it up with parts from my Ferrous 29er which I recently had to retire because of a cracked weld.

    Reba Race fork, Bontrager Race X Lite wheels, XDX tires, X9 shift/derail, salsa 34T chainring, salsa ringdinger, N gear jump stop, 990 cassette, 991 chain, XT cranks (polished!), Bontrager RXL Pro saddle, RXL carbon post, RXL stem, RL Bigsweep bars, Cane Creek Solos Headset, XT brakes with G3 rotors and shimano pedals (I think that sums it up)

    Good looking bike, can't wait to take it for a ride.

    Thanks.. But the Manitou Minute 29 80mm fork just isn't up for the job I'm afraid.. Easily THE shittiest fork I've ever tried. Now I need to find something else, I just don't know what? Reba XX, Lefty of Fox. Is there any alternatives? DT Swiss? What's their 29'er fork called?

    Wink Death of a full suspension 26er...

    Once you go big wheels you never look back... This Big Mamma build wieghs more than the Turner build, however it climbs better, descends better, is more agile in the twisty's ( I would have never believed it) and rolls over everything in its path like an M1 tank. Just finished racing it at the Big Ring Ghorba race in Sam Houston National Pine Forest. I loved my Turner bike, but the truth is that the BM is just plain more fun. Smile and ride!

    Niner EMD update

    Been satisfied with this one for over 3 years. Planning on keeping her. Usually I'm moving on to another ride after about a year.

    your bike looks nice, THough I think that you should take all those wires, gears and the shocks off to stream line it and give it an even more vintage look. Love the style though

    Outclassed?!? What are you talking about! Your bike is gorgeous. What an amazing build. Love the retro crossover vibe.

    I'm gonna say that is one of the best builds I have ever seen on MTBR period!

    Finally finished my 29er build and took it on the first ride today! Raleigh XXIX pro (with Reynolds 853 tubing), ztr arch rims, bb7 brakes, fully rigid :-)

    Tubeless + 29er rides much smoother than my front suspension 26er

    Better measure - the Ardent 2.4 may not fit in the back. I run it in front and it fits fine with a fox f29 fork. The 29-3 2.0 that you already have may work well as a rear tire (and since the rear wears quicker, you'll have a replacement ready).

    This is what I would have liked to have to done but where I live there isn't much flat ground. I'm too out of shape to hump a SS bike up all these hills.

    Thanks a lot! It's a pretty fun bike and certainly something you don't see everyday (probably a little out of place here in the MB zone but who cares).

    My issues with clearance on the mamba weren't so much on clearing the seat stays but clearing the front dérailleur. 2.25 is probably as big as you'd be able to fit without rubbing on the f der cage.

    Maybe you can try Ardent 2.2 in the back and 2.4 up front.

    Final Build

    My new wheels arrived...

    Cut about 1.25 lbs. from the stock wheels (1408g for the new set). But added back about 90g going with the Snake Skin version of the Racing Ralph.

    22.0 lb w/ pedals.

    It shifts up fine, shifting down I have had some chain suck. I think I just need to adjust the front derailleur a bit.

    My cobia hardtail. Its my newest but not first 29er. My other 29er is a hifi pro Full susp. 29er

    My advice to the gut with the red Mamba, get rid of those death tires! My cobia came with those and they almost killed me on a leisurely ride with my girlfriend. I gor fire xc pro 29ers nw and the bike rocks

    heading to the LBS tomorrow to get the Maxxis Ardent 2.4's applied tubeless-style! I'm pumped. Gonna ride til I die tomorrow evening.

    And I'm glad I'm not the only one who's about killed himself with the 29-3s... slick as hell when I'm trying to push through corners at speed.

    I'll keep the 29-3s around as they have less than 150 miles on 'em... any takers?

    Hope If you ride trails and not Black Top

    Bike Manufactures put those pathetic tires on bikes because it's a cheap way to lighten them up plus they will feel good in the Bike Shop parking lot.

    One picture is a 2009 Caffeine 2 with the Conti Race King 2.2's (They are more like 1.9s with tiny knobs almost slicks)

    The Other is My 2009 with a Geax Saguaro Real 2.2 rear and the Maxxis Ardent 2.4 up front.

    I refused to run those pathetic tire at all and had the LBS put Geax Saguaros on straight away as part of the deal. The Saguaro is a good hard pack tire good in the back, big volume and fast rolling. Not the best in loose conditions or in front.

    I just remembered this is the Post your 29er thread, I'll post Mine, a Stock version of Mine and My Single Speed which came with some decent REAL 2.0in Specialized 29er tires. (They are about wore out going bigger on that one too.

    Here are my first snapshots (after I got it wet/dirty first of course). I'm putting an old tube on the chain stay tonight while I've got the rear wheel off to replace a bent deraileur hanger (bounced my shoulder off a tree and then went over the bars today after these photos were taken):
