    SS carbon 29er frames

    Can anyone list names of them?

    The only one I'm aware of is the Niner Air Nine carbon.

    The only carbon 29er frame that they make that I know of is the Zaskar, and it doesn't have sliders (link).
    Do you know of another one?

    The Origin 8 Paladin has a BB30, so one could get the eccentric adapter that Problem Solvers makes and convert that frame, (or any BB30 carbon frame could ostensibly be converted), to an single speed.

    I've been looking for one of these too; lots of great frames, but no ss options

    Yep, Lots of BB30PF Carbon Frames out there that can be used as SS.

    EBB is bad enough as it is without a Problem Fixer rig. Any carbon bike could be run SS with a tensioner or WI Eccentric ENO... something tells me that's not what he's after... me neither.

    Oh, so now you are getting specific?

    So...out with it. What exactly would you want?

    Yeti BigTop has a carbon rear triangle so it rides like a carbon bike but isn't as light. If unique, sliders, compliance and price are all major factors, give it a look

    I've heard nothing but good reports from riders using the Beer Components BB30 EBB, and I believe there is enough room that you shouldn't have to use half-links either. Raleigh will be selling a production SS cross bike for 2012 that uses an FSA model of the same thing.

    IMHO BB30/PF30 EBBs are more similar to tapered headsets for 44mm headtubes: not so much a conversion but a different way to make good use of the same frame.

    what i want is a damn Lurcher... ever!

    ...or at least the option to e-ride it.

    dreaming:
    ss'able (without the problem "solver" thingamabiddle) Kona King Kahuna (yes I've let them know my feelings... a few times )

    if these guys don't get their act together i may end up on a moots, lynskey, or by:stickel. I'd go local and get on the list for a True Fab, but I fancy the fancy metal... you know how it goes.

    of course, there's nothing wrong with my Juice... i love the hell out of it... i just keep my eye on the prize, if you know what i mean.

    requisite pr0n:

    There are no '12 S-Works ss frame sets, only the stumpjumper ss frameset.

    meltingfeather, sweet ride. I hope you don't get passed up too much on that. I know the SETTE Carbon would need a tensioner but that is a sweet deal on PricePoint. $900 or so?

    $799.98

    To be precise. I am done with Carbon frames, but that is a deal. I don't know the quality though.

    Take a glimpse at the Ellsworth Enlightenment carbon SS. You can swap out the brackets to go geared as well. Super light, super responsive.

    I'm not surprised it's super responsive with a ha of 72.5! A problem with a lot of the frames that you can change to ss dropouts seems to be you have to gain chainstay length. What we need is ss-specific frames (like the alu specialized with ebb).

    The thing that makes a bike ss-specific is adjustable chainstay length. The only other option is a tensioner, which isn't an option for many.
    EBBs change chainstay length just like the other options. Unlike the other options, they also change your fit and make all kinds of noise until you figure out the perfect high-frequency maintenance routine you need to go through to keep them quiet.

    I am running a 29" Orbea Alma using the Beer Components BB30 eccentric, and have had nothing but good luck with it.
