    Hello! and details on my new build

    Hello there, I'm BikerTWashington. Longtime lurker first time poster. I've been riding a Giant Talon for the past year and have decided to take the plunge and build up a Surly 1x1. I thought I'd post my build list and maybe pictures once I take some. Cheers!

    Frame/Fork(rigid): Surly 1x1. Large. Stash Green
    Wheels: 26" Velocity Blunts
    Hubs: SRAM X9 with 16t Surly cog and spacer kit.
    Brakes: Shimano Deore Hydraulic
    Seatpost: RaceFace Ride 27.2x350mm
    Stem: Answer ROVE XC stem. 100mm 8 degree rise (allegedly)
    Crankset: RaceFace Ride Narrow Wide (32t) w/EXI external bb
    Handelbars: Giant (off the the Talon)
    Tires: Schwalbe Nobby Nic (26x2.35)
    Pedals: TBD
    Grips: TBD (probably Oury, can't decide if lock-on or not)
    Chain: KMC X9-73 9 speed chain (excited cuz KMC)

    Future Plans: 50mm or 65mm Surly Rims with Surly ultra new hub and the fattest tires I can fit on it oooorrrrr buy some Stans for the Talon and switch this bike to a 650b config.

    I understand the 1x1 can take a 3" tire so that could be fun. Having a few wheelsets would give you more versatility.
