    I dig the old school headbadge. Reminds me of old Black and Decker tools from the 50s.

    Those tires came stock on my Mamba, too. I tried to take them on the trails and... it wasn't good. I have to second this suggestion.

    I had to use some sub-standard parts to complete the build (cranks, wheels, bars), but this will do for now.

    That Epic is lookin' really good. I think I may be inclined to wait for the carbon one next year but the thought of the price tag says otherwise. Have fun on that bike, I loved it when I demo'ed it last summer.

    that sunroom was my nemesis last year, tiling the floor and whatnot

    Leadville bike yes... once the red I9 wheels with Aspens and Hive 15g cranks are installed...

    I too am anxious to see what the carbon version will be like.. but this will suffice for now.

    Man..... two things I really miss about living in Pismo Beach: Kayak surfing every night after work, and riding up on the Hazard Peak trail or out to Los Osos or Montana De Oro every weekend.

    Finished 'er up tonight... Had to wait for the final parts

    Started about 5, hit some snags but was done by 11, and done done, with everything torqued, cables trimmed, clear patches installed, everything. Tomorrow I ride!

    A little over my expected target (which was <23 lbs)... but things like the seat (Rocket V Team on the way... in white too, so the white stem won't look so lonely ), and the seatpost clamp (some horrid anchor that I found - only 34.9 I could get my hands on in short notice... got a nice 17g one on the way)... Anyways... As is, sits at 10.65kg (23.47lbs)... My ultimate goal is to be right at 10kg (22 lbs) or a bit below (9.999kg will suffice )

    I may eventually get a 2011 Fox Terralogic front fork... but for now, this 2010 Reba Team should do fine. Never ridden a RockShox other than brief demos - so look forward to proving it out on the trails!

    I think my overkill chainstay protector didn't help (I hadn't factored that in my weight spreadsheet ) But make no mistake - there shall be not paint chips from a chain hit... I guarantee! Plus it will be quieter too.... Thanks to the freerider/downhillers for the idea.

    (it was dark obviously, and my berry doesn't take the best night shots... so apologies in advance for pic quality )

    Heres my AIR9 from the Niner forum.
    Just switched over to the 29er and really enjoying it, modest build on a budget finishing up on a 10.7kg build with heavy ass pedals and saddle.



    And the cool night shot:

    First time poster here so here are my two unfinished 29ers, the Swift is nearest to completion

    Singular Swift 2x9, Exotic carbon fork (colour matched to frame), Titec J bar cork grips and tape yet to be shellac'd, Hope stem, Hope headset,Hope mono mini pro brakes, XTR rapid rise rear and XTR front deraileur with Barcon shifters on Paul mounts, Use seat post, Brooks Ti Swift saddle, Wheels Halo freedom disc on Hope Pro 2 with Halo twin rail tyres. Crank due to be swapped out to Middleburn





    On One ScandAL prototype slot drop (Ex team race bike) single speed, Pace 29er rigid fork, tioga carbon bars, Hope stem, Hope mono minis with carbon levers, Hope headset, Middleburn crank with Surly chainring, Bonty X carbon seatpost, Brooks Ti Swift saddle, shown with wheels listed above

    I think I am unlikely to finish this build as am I not feeling the love for it, so will probably brake up and sell the frame

    Latest picture - with new seat - Rocket V Team (219g)

    Now down to 23.34 lbs... Still waiting on light weight (17g) seatpost clamp... and I've got some other bits that might get me just below 23lbs

    Rode it today for the time out on the trails... SWEEEEEEET it is!! Definitely loving this new build... Fit is bang on. Fork (Reba Team) rides super nice - better than I even expected (I came from a Fox)... And the seat was actually very comfortable and a perfect fit.

    Can't wait to ride some more!!






    cheers

    The 18" Mary was a little on the small side for me, so I sold the frame and bought a 19,5" Inbred instead. Ride quality is very similar.

    I love how 2,4" Racing Ralphs float over roots with 22 psi front and 26 psi rear.

    Here's my freshly built MootoX 1x9 - Jones Bars, new Brooks Swift Ti, King Sour Apple HS, v-brakes and SS dropouts. It's kinda heavy at 26.4 now, but future new wheels might help.

    Very nice ride.
    I don't like the etched graphics though.
    As this is Lynskey built i would prefer the standard Ridgeline 29 with classic decals.

    Man, are you a Jeff Kabush fan?

    You're certainly a look-a-like in that pic!






    sweet wheels too btw i have the same set... not the super lightest, but really not bad... they give the bike a burly looking while still being ~1750g per set

    Thanks, you too.
    The Scandal frame is ridiculously light.
    I went to a 1x9 set-up and will be doing a wheelset soon. I'll post an updated pic when I get the wheels built.

    I just pick up this last friday. XL 2010 Stumpy 29er ss It rides really nice , really smooth on the road as well. I will buy a smaller cog for shopping trip. I just need to cut the bar , they are too wide for my taste and play with my seat height , am very close to the spot.
    Super happy with this bike.

    Gave it a grease bath today, no more creaks!


    If you think a Lefty makes a nice ride, try adding a WWLT to the front also Also great for the rock gardens.


    Got a Salsa rear skewer today

    It rained today so the trails were too muddy (and I put my summer set on lol).

    I don't know why, but I love this bike!

    I think the paint/graphics go well with the bars... combines for a really cool, funky look.

    The saddle, along with the red grips are a nice touch

    Good job!

    I'd point that skewer lever up- or backwards before it grabs a root, branch or rock if I were you. Wonderful bike, though!

    I can't for the life of me figure out why people built a lightweight, custom, blinged out Ti bike and then put an ugly boat anchor of a saddle on them.

    That aside the rest of the bike is awesome!

    yup, little over 24 lbs... pretty nice.
    been looking at CarbonCycles stuff, bars, stems bla bla bla, looks like nice stuff at a real price not the over blown price everyone else is selling at to get the word "carbon fiber" on the part. how's that fork working for ya?

    The fork is working gooood
    Light cheap and very VERY similar to other branded forks.
    Seems strong as i don't ride only xc trails with this bike, that's why i use "not so light" wheels and tires

    Did you start with the frame set or the whole bike?
    If I had a black light this place would look like a Jackson Pollock painting.

    I must be really really bored right now because I just looked through this entire thread :P I took my 29r for a spin yesterday and I'm trying to nurse my sun burn as I type this haha fyi spf 30 is pretty useless hahaha

    gotta say there are some very very very nice rides in this thread. I'm jealous of a lot of them, but I must say I do enjoy the bike I have a LOT.

    my peace 9r multi


    decent price and a 520 steel frame seems like a great start to upgrade later. I already have a reba with the U-turn option on the way as well as a set of used avid Juicy 5's but we'll see if that deal pans out.

    Sweet!!

    I like how Spesh has done the toptube on their 29ers... not the greatest for standover maybe (as it arches up), but looks cool

    How do you like that Hutchinson in the rear? Is it is a Toro? Tubeless?


    What's the weight on that bad boy?

    Sworks HT 29er

    Reydin!

    I started with frame-fork set

    R+P+K!

    they are confortable but I donīt like this lever position too, but if I crash will not like to broken the frame with the brake levers

    MI canuck!

    the rear tire is a Hutchinson Python tubeless ready, rolling very fast, and the weight in LBS I think will be 21.60

    regards!

    Pd. I finished yesterday my first xc race with this bike, 6th position of my category and first 29er of course!

    my new bike

    Just finished building this one for a class at school. welds aren't the prettiest but it rides better than anything I've ever been on.










    You'll have to excuse me though, I just finished my last final this morning. I need to go ride.

    Very cool! I'd love to hear more about the build: materials, process, tools, etc.

    After your ride of course! First things first.

    it's a university class. I've gone pretty bike crazy this year. i built a pennyfarthing last quarter. I couldn't pass up a chance to build a real bike. the thing was a time vampire for 10 weeks but it is so worth it. I'd love to talk more about it and the process but this probably isn't the best place. maybe i'll start a new thread.

    @robtre - Maybe your bb7s just need tuning/adjustment. I have bb7s on all of my bikes & they give me more than enough stopping power. Maybe you could also change your Roundagons to Cleansweeps or other aftermarket rotors. I've noticed that my bikes with the Cleansweeps & Ashimas stop better than the one with the Roundagons.

    Oh, by the way, nice bike.

    Sorry for the OT...

    Not nearly as sexy or pretty as some of the others here. My 2009 Paragon frame was recently replaced with a 2010. About the only stock items left are the frame and seatpost collar. X.9 drive train, Race Face carbon post and stem, Easton composite bars, Juicy 7's, XT/Stans wheelset and so on. Size large and 27 pounds. I'll shave about 2 pounds off of it this summer for racing.





    With a couple siblings..

    $500 million for more irresponsible EBRPD land management? No thanks.

    Cheers guys Yeah, its alot of bike for a slob like me. Still dialling it in and learning how to ride it to its full. 180km (120mi?) ride this weekend should get either the bike or my arse bedded in properly.

    TwoHeadsBrewing : You dont want to know (and Im scared to say!). Lets just say, my garage got a nice new dial-to-base alarm system installed this week - just incase.

    I sure do

    Well weight really isn't that important even tho light bikes are nice to lift around. My 29'er is 20.7lbs = plenty light for me.

    New Retrotec 29er

    I just got this built up a couple of days ago and I'm really stoked on how it turned out. I was going to build it up Single Speed but decided in the end to go w/ a 1 x 9 setup. With the EBB I always have to option down the road to try it if I want to.

    Beautiful bike, STP! Very classy color combination!

    If that was mine, it would be SS with a Brooks saddle to give it an even more retro look.

    Just got my first 29'er! It's a basic Diamondback Overdrive, but I've got 30 miles on it so far and I'm really enjoying it. Now I'm just trying to keep from upgrading things on it.... Well, at least until they break.

    Is it hanging out in the local beauty salon? Chicks dig those extra three inches huh?
    Sweet bike!

    Fresh from the LBS...



    I think it's a good deal at $830.

    I'll be swapping out some of the parts within the week before i ride it.

    The wheels are silver Salsa Semi rims that I built up to silver Chris King ISO disc hubs using DT Comp spokes w/ silver alloy nipples. Can you tell I have a silver theme going here?
    I'll try to post up a few more pictures tonight.

    I was going to do the Brooks Swallow but I just couldn't see it working for me in the long run. I still may try it as a Single Speed some day but I enjoy the versatility of having some gears.

    Not a beauty salon. Just a LBS w/ lots of beautiful custom bikes.
    As for the chicks I hope you are right!

    Here's my first 29er. It was originally a single speed sold by a local company called KROSS. Now it's coverted to 8-speed Alfine IGH (32x20 cogs). The bike is based on steel frame built on Reynolds 631 tubing.

    A couple of photos taken during my trip to Beskid Zywiecki (mountains in Poland):

    How are finding the rst forks? They seem like a decent upgrade for the price.
