    Giving SS a shot

    Figured I would try the SS thing. I have been watching this board for a while now and all the stories I have read inspired me to give it a try. I've been picking up bits here and there and am still a ways from finishing but thought I would try to share my progress. SHIGGY, thanks for pointing out all the features of this particular board. Look no old questions YET.

    That's a tasty-looking frame. Great color, nice clean lines. Steel? You're off to a great start, mate.

    I hope you put an ENO hub on that frame. Black rims...oh man! Nice frame!

    The frame is a 93 Rockhopper and is steel. I'll likely have to use a tensioner on the chain. Definately will have black rims. I would like to get an eccentric hub but they are so pricey. If anyone has a set of black wheels I would be interested. There is a big swap meet here this Saturday so I might get lucky and find something. But if you all have a set let me know. Bruce

    Very noice! I've got a WTB saddle that is the same color (looks like the uphostery on a 70's Hammond organ, all blue and glittery), but I can't bear to part with it.

    I am up in Aztec NM... I have not touched one of my geary bikes since starting the SS thing... I rode the telegraph trail system last weekend in Durango on the SS and was pretty scared goin in but had a great time and actually was faster than the other gearys I was with... Post that shot of the Sandias! I stare out at the jimenz and the san juans from my plant...

    That frame looks great! I have some brand new WTB wheels with black spokes/hubs/rims I could let go really cheap if you dont find anything at the swap meet.... matthew dot hastings at williams dot com

    As my ex wife once said about an expensive coat "it's a classic, I'll be wearing it for years". She was right, she did wear it for quite a few years and I'll say the same about the ENO. A good quality tensioner isn't cheap and then you still have a tensioner. ENO gives you the option of going fixed and it is a piece of art.
    I got some bad ideas in my head.
