    My new SS, Bike Porn inside!

    Hey gang, I am super excited to finally have this finished! I've been a racer for 17yrs and built up a ghetto SS a few years back and have loved it. But once I bought my latest race bike that was 2x10 I hated the akward swap to the Junk Yard Dog SS. So I decided to build up a matching SS to the 2x10 bike same frame and geometry, and here she is! I also decided to lace my own wheels for this, figured why not try. Enjoy

    Build specs:
    Moto Ti 29er frame
    White Ind Hubs, ENO Ecc rear (had them ano'd red)
    Stans Crest rims
    DT spokes 2.0/1.8
    Red Nips for bling
    Niner Carbon Fork
    Avid Elixer CR Brakes
    Noir Carbon Cranks
    Homebrew Chainring
    Raceface Evolve Bars
    Truvative Stem and post
    Ritchey Grips
    WTB saddle
    Maxxis Ignitors with tubes till i re-tension my wheels
    Present weight with tubes and pedals is 19.6lbs I can live with that!

    Let me know what you think!

    Very Cool! That carbon fork is so sexy.

    What's she weigh? Looks real light.

    Nice build.
    I think negative rise stems with riser bars look weird, but what ever puts your hands in the right spot. I had to do the same for awhile too (until I could get a flat bar).
    Ignitors set up tubeless real easy on Crests, which will loose a tiny bit more weight and make it ride even better.
    Enjoy!

    I know for the fact that he has 2 different cogs for the rear. An 18 and 20. IIRC the front is a 32.

    Thanks everyone. Right now I'm running a 32x20t and I have a 18t as well. I am running Ignitor tubless on my other bike and they are one of my favorite tires. Being the geometry is 100% the same as my geared bike I figured I'd start with the same stem, bar, and rise and go from there.

    Cant wait to ride her, fighting some back issues right now though, sucks!

    Looks awesome, I've played around with the idea of doing this with my fantom comp sl 29 but with it being my only bike I can't justify it.

    You might find that you love it. What does it cost? A $20 tensioner, some cassette spacers and some time?

    Man, I have thought about picking up one of their ti frames to replace my outcast. I would probably just go the route of running a Forward Components bb since I already have a decent set of wheels (Whites!!)

    I also thought about having my hubs annodized. They came out pretty good. But if I have to take the wheels apart to pull the hubs then I will probably just replace them with some Hopes in red.

    Looks good!

    Well I've been riding the snot outta this pig and I gotta say my matching 2x10 bike is filing for divorce! I simply love the **** out of this thing! Its lite (19.4lbs), nimble, tracks where ever I point her and with the tubeless 2.35 Nobby Nic up front and the carbon Niner fork its a dream! Its made me a stronger rider for sure. Last years 20-25mile ride average was about 11.2, now im pushing 12.2+ without da gears! So as a salute to the SS gods, here is moar dirty bike porn...

    Luke! What up bro! Ive been rocking a 32/18, although a bit though at places like Iron Hill and some sections of Fair Hill, it allows me to spin it out on the flats. You know me im a stickler for the details, i even aligned the White Ind logos on the hubs to match the Crest and Tire logos when I laced the wheels.

    I cheated and pulled the new logos off my rims! Actually that was more so because the new graphics are over 1' long each and there are 4 of them on each rim. It simply looks a little over kill. Now they are all black.

    I have pretty much made the decision that my next frame will either be a custom steel or an off the shelf ti frame as you have done. I would prefer to run some sort of EBB on it though (I don't think Forward Components is around any more though) and I don't really want to go back to another set of WI hubs (I already have one set and really like my new Hope's/wheels). But we are talking about another year down the road at this point. Hell, Vassago will be back on line by then and perhaps they will finally put out the black label frames or something along those lines then.

    Save yourself some money and buy my philcentric!

    Yep, there are some other options out there but I am trying not to get too wrapped up in them right now since I just dumped alot of money on the bike in the past month (new XTR brakes and a complete new set of wheels to include tires, cogs...) The bottom line is that I should not be allowed to have an ebay account or access to my checking account (so the wife says).

    Very nice!!! Can only dream of something that nice at this point. But starting to buy piece by piece for my next bike. It will definitely be a single speed.

    Nice bike!

    I think I rode with you at Iron Hill one morning before the race. I had been eyeing up WI hubs for my next build, and after seeing/hearing yours it kind of sealed the deal.

    Yeah that was me! I love the WI hubs, super smooth, quick engagement, easy to service, lots of cog options, etc...

    Nice seeing the bike in person the other evening. I would have asked to pick it up, but fondling someone else's bike is just wrong.
    Thanks to www.weavercycleworks.com for my awesome bike frames!

    The bike looks great. The red bits really make it.
    .I hope someday to have the ability to build something so cool.

    How was building you own wheels? It has always seemed very intimidating to me.
