    Finally finished my Rumble SS.

    I've been really busy lately with other hobbies but I finally finished my Rumble SS. I took it for a short ride this morning and it rides really nice. It really jumps out from underneath you when you stomp on the pedals.

    Don't get it dirty

    Nice job, I had to take a second look to count all the red parts.

    I've got one of them!




    Bloody marvellous it is, mostly used for XC and hacking about in my local woods. How did you get on with the integrated chain tensioners; I kept bending mine and ending up using a Tuggnut instead.
    Hope you enjoy your new ride, nice build, the red bits work really well with the black frame

    But I only have a couple rides on it. The wheel seems to be holding well. I don't use the chain tensioners to tension and adjust the rear wheel in the frame. After I have the rear wheel adjusted by hand I snug the tensioners slightly against the hub.

    I went with 36X19, and I think that was a mistake as my legs are spinning as fast as they can all the time. What gearing do you have?

    32:16 at the moment,which is fine for most of the trails that I ride, although if I didn't want to get off and push at all I should probably drop the back cog by a tooth or two. I'm not averse to a bit of pushing though, lets you admire the view better. I still have to pedal like a loon on the flat though, though you get used to the spinspinspinspin coast type of pedalling style after a while.

    I like this frame so much I would like to turn it into a, dare I say it?, I would like to tun it into a 9 or 27 speed? What are my options to do this without going the Sainte route?

    Been looking at these too...

    How big of a rear tire can you squeeze in the frame?

    2.5" should be no probs - I'm running 2.3 with loads of room around it.

    Me too!

    Bad camera phone pic but I got her built before Christmas. It was a blast. I started out with a 100mm travel fork with a good inch of sag and my pedals hit everything. Plus, it was twitchy as heck. This 130mm Minute made all the difference.

    Great frame at a great price - fun ride for my big 220# rear end. I'll be letting go of the inbred in the near future.

    This is my only bike now - I feel free with my SingleBike!

    Buddy got a 2.7 Gazz in his

    But he got the geared version - it may have more room.
