    I like it, very ninja-like. Swobos are sweet bikes, especially their commuter bikes, very cool

    Interesting build, we had a discussion on the Bianchi to Swobo topic in the Secret Codes thread (one of the "chick" engineers behind Bianchi SS models went to Swobo) and Swobo doesn't make any mtb platforms.

    Someone passed this link: http://www.swobo.com/htatbl/archives...ednesdays.html

    The Baxter looks like it may fill the void for a mtb build if you toss the chainguard, bars, etc. Seems as though you took matters into your own hands with the Folsom. Did you weld disk mounts to the frame? Can you explain any problems or custom mods you did to pull it off? Assuming you use this bike as a commuter or urban ride, but it seems as though it could just as easy be configured for off-road, maybe?

    That other thread doesn't work anymore, at least the last couple of times I've tried to open it (with different browers...).

    Here's mine in it's current set up:

    I got the disc ready frame and fork direct from Swobo. This ride is solid. Highlights include the disc specific Swobo Folsom frame, which is burly and light. The Truvativ 1.1 crank has a perfect chainline with the 16T Shimano freewheel, making it a pleasure to ride. The WTB single speed specific wheels are super smooth and the Continental tires roll fast and grip tight. The headset is a trick Cane Creek S8 and the gnarly seatpost is a Gravity by FSA. Everything is new (except the disc brakes, seat and grips). The gear ratio is 32/16, perfect for off road adventures and hilly terrain. I built this bike for a friend, but now I'm selling it. $800 bones takes all.

    Heres my SS

    Integrated Post just for somthing different, and clean, i know that this may be frowned upon in the MTB world, But ahwell. I also made sure the Tbue is 31.6mm ID so if i need to cut it, no probs, just get it reamed, and slide a post in.

    My "custom" Jamis Exile SS

    Here's my '06 Jamis Exile. I bought this last year from Jenson for $625. Swapped out some parts, resold the OEM stuff I removed, and bought some replacement parts. Upgrades from stock:

    • Fox F80 RL replaced the crappy Manitou Axle Platinum shock.
    • On One Mary Bar and Stem
    • Kenda Nevegal Tires and stock rims converted to Tubeless using Stans Rimstrips and Sealent.
    • White Industrys ENO 18T freewheel
    • Classic Selle Italia Flite Saddle
    • Time ATAC pedals
    • Oury Grips


    The new weight stands at just over 24 lbs (down from 26.5 lbs stock).
    The Hayes Sole brakes are the next to go. Steel is real...this bike rides like a dream!

    Repo...

    I am not sure of the numbers, but I have Kenda Nevegals on there, and there is tons of space. I am certain that just about anything would fit.

    That looks a LOT like my bike. Same frame, handlebar, freewheel, seat. I have changed to Elixir CR since this pic was taken. You are right, it is a really nice riding frame.

    oddly enough I've been looking at monstercrossing something and my old hoolie popped into my head!
    if you ever feel like it, I fit 29x2" tires in that thing, only about 4 mm of mud clearance IIRC, but 29x42's or something will fit great i figure!

    enjoy the old big red dog.

    Yep, I saw your bike on another thread and thought the same thing - that's funny. I love the Mary bar and ENO freewheel - big improvements. The saddle's off my old road bike and it fits this bike's personality perfectly. I was looking for a used Sid or Fox F80. Ended up getting a decent deal on a Fox off eBay. That was a huge performance upgrade for the bike - plus it shed almost 2lbs! The brakes are the next thing to upgrade - but for the global collapse of capitalism I would have a pair of Juicy 7s by now. BTW, the stock WTB Speed Disc rims are easy to convert to tubeless using Stan's.

    Are you in the DC area too? Too funny to meet on a local trail - Team Exile!

    Here is my single speed. I converted it to ss back in November and posted it on the old thread. Here it is now without the tensioner and a new Thudbuster.

    At an absurdly wicked price too I might add. Fantiastic frame and ride. And except for me f-ing up the b/b install and stripping the nondrive side threads,no issues at all.

    rear hub is hope pro 2 ss/trials. surly wide cog. front hub is atomlab. rims are rhynolite xl. wheels are tough as hell...i've messed up pretty big on this bike, and yet to even need the wheels trued.

    Nice Bike ^^

    I plan to change it up to a tubeless setup too. Most likely the crankset too and maybe a carbon rigid fork.

    Yep, no trick photo here. It is real slack and on my to-do list this evening. I was having issues with the EBB, or for better words, my dumb azz was not familiar with the workings of the EBB.

    Matt Chester Mutinyman:




    Jeff Jones SpaceFrame:




    Which do I like better?
    Both.

    Seriously, some days I like the low, racey feeling of the Chester. It's flexy and comfy and what I'll probably race most of the time. Other days I love the bomb-proofness and indestruct-ability of the Jones. It's a few pounds heavier, but I can jump around with aplomb, then put it away wet. I'm glad I have both.

    I've posted these before, but what the hell:





    Things I've changed since are the tires, and then I moved the bottle cage to the seat tube for better weight distribution

    Just finished building a new 1x1. Been riding it every day. After riding FS for so long I'm really enjoying the power transfer of a fully rigid. Today I tried to pop a wheelie, and went straight onto my back with my feet still attached, glad no one was watching. BTW 26" SS is alive and well although I might throw a 29" on the front for fun when I get some more cash.

    Specs

    SURLY 1x1 20"
    Cranks: Surly mr whirly w/ BB
    32:16 Surly whirly:ENO
    Rear wheel is a surly disc hub w/ f519 rim (prolly throw discs on soon)
    Avid 7's v-brakes front and rear
    Cane creek front wheel
    Thomson elite seatpost
    Koski seat (soon the be replaced, ouch!)
    Bars: Race face evolve DH 27"
    Headset: Cane Creek Tank hit 2
    Grips: titec hellbent
    Stem: raceface
    chain: KMC 610HX
    Pedals: mallet 2's



    This was my first but not last build. I really took my time and tried to learn as much as possible. Thanks to the people on this forum, my lurking taught me a lot.

    This is my grown-up bmx neighborhood bike. It was actually relatively inexpensive until I started adding personal touches....like different wheels, tires, brakes, seat, stem, pedals, etc. BUT...it's a fun bike for sure.



    Cool! I found a use for that inexpensive tandem crankset off of ebay.

    Repost of the Jamis:


    This year I hope to give it some fancy wheels and Thomson jiblets. Rode 32:20 last year. This year I'm trying to get on top of 32:18. We'll see how that goes ...

    I live in Salinas, Ca. I decided to run BMX cranks and chain ring just to be different. The gearing is actually 23/13 which is basically the same as 32/18. It works pretty good too!

    This is my Actual BMX 29er and an SS converted to BMX style . I know these probly aint considered REAL bikes to some of you MTBers , but i got addicted to bmx 2 years ago and now have numerouse bikes 12" ,16", 20 , 24 ,26" and these 29ers .The problem is that im too big and old for the smaller bikes but i've seen the light and am considering a Cannondale 29er / lefty fork but since the economy isnt that great right now i just have to deal with what i have .

    here's my 2003 bianchi S.I.S.S.

    Just getting back into it - commuted for 3 years in Baltimore, but have never had the time or money to get into trail riding. Wow. This bike is really rewarding to ride, if that makes sense...it doesn't make anything easy, but just literally puts a smile on my face when I'm ripping up miles of singletrack (probably the same reason most of you ride SS).







    photos were taken while riding around town, the bike IS dirty now.

    I LOVE the orange. Great color. Great bike thus far. Picked it up on Craigslist with the Tora fork and BB-7 brakes. Threw on my ENO Trials freewheel from my old trials bike and hit the road.

    Awesome Steamroller. How wide are those tires? I thought it didn't have much clearance (but then not much on a Surly is loads more than on other brands). Is it fixed?

    WTB Interwolf 38's. The casing leans towards a 35 though. I think Speedmax 40's should fit with the brake caliper. It is fixed.

    I've got 38's on my steam'r, about 6mm room on seatstays and 14mm on chainstays (with axle about halfway through the h-drops) with TONS more room in the fork.
    in the surly forum there was a dude with 42's....

    My first singlespeed, and first 29er. I rode it for the first time on Tuesday. I was short on time, so only did about 9 miles, which is less than half the distance I ride normally. My legs are sore. It feels good though. My legs haven't been sore like this since I first started riding

    Not nearly as nice and certainly not as fancy as many here, but I'm LOVING my budget commuter bike. I have been told by many friends that I'm part Jawa (ref) and this bike is proof. Parts were salvaged from many sources (freecycle got me the complete stock Sorrento) including my favorite Canti brakes from my old DBR hardtail and pedals from a BMX that I had so long ago, I don't even remember which one it came off of

    So here it is, all ready to go for a "tag-along" ride with my 5 year old girl. She just LOVEs that thing!

    Sorry - been traveling. The bike is a Roland North Star cruiser. There's a guy here in Houston who, to the best of my knowledge, buys a bunch of frames and parts in Taiwan, builds them up into bikes and distributes them through Sun & Ski Sports in Houston. Mountain bikes are low end, but I really liked this one. A lot. It's set up and intended for 29" wheels. It was spec'd pretty low end, but the frame and fork are really nice. The welds are beautiful. So I figured I might as well have a little fun and build it up right.

    The new incarnation of my first "real" MTB. Bought for me in 9th grade.

    details:

    Frame: 95 DB Wildwood. Hi-ten, heavy as hell
    Wheels: Giant Iguana disk hubs, iguana rims (very cheap take-offs)
    Stem: Suntour XC pro
    Levers: Suntour XC pro
    Brakes: DiaComp VC2 Cantilevers
    Saddle: Very Very cheap take-off velo. But very comfy
    Bars: not sure, but has a cool little badger on them, so I kept them. Had Laying around
    Cranks/Chainring: Big Cheese, 38T
    Tires: Kenda Krusher 2.1s,
    Seatpost: Cheapo action bikes micro adjust.

    Gonna pick up some better pedals and maybe put my brooks on it. the velo is comfy, but my brooks B17N is just better. Also have some planet bike hardcore fenders for when its rainy. This will see mostly railtrails, and the C&O, but will get some fireroad and singletrack as well. Gonna get a TomiCog as well for when I'm feeling the fix. Sorry for the crappy pics, my phone sucks.

    The fork is a Mosso Aluminum fork from an ebay store. Very light and inexpensive.

    crank bros cobalts

    It' still too early for me to say much about the Cobalts... the bike overall is faster than I expected... and I actually like the clackety-clack sound they make.

    42/18 gearing. And just a bit out of the comfort zone off road!

    But, 32/18 and a tensioner isn't that hard a swap.

    Almost finished, I'm in the process of building up some singlespeed specific wheels. It's a custom Lapdogs edition Misfit diSSent.

    It's the same fork as the White Bros Rock Solid, it just has different stickers and pewter aluminum bits.

    So Shimano (The billion dollar company in Japan with the industry's biggest development budget) rebadges WB forks and sells them as their own? Any more info on that?

    They are using the same Taiwanese fabricator as everyone else (White Bros, Origin8, Exotic, Fetish) who offers this fork design.

    So are they more/less expensive than the White Bros fork?? I would hope less, but if it's Shimano, it's probably overpriced...

    They were significantly less than the WB, though not as pretty.

    Yeah the PRO stuff is pretty bland IMO...got a Giant TCR roadie in the shop that has a PRO stem/bar combo that was pretty cool, but that's about the only thing that jumped out at me so far from the line...

    OK. That makes sense, I guess. Looks good. Thanks for the tip om saving a few $ when fork shopping!

    ^^ very nice. two things tho... cap those bars, you don't want a core sample of your thigh do you? Also, you might wanna rotate that front skewer back a little. Its gonna catch all kinda crap when it gets weedy.

    That would be Scrublovers beloved Peyto.

    Peyto was a custom builderin in Western Canada - and I think the story is Scrubs bought it as an unclaimed or demo bike - it just happened to fit him to a T.

    It is a classic hardtail that's for sure.

    Still a few changes to make, but I'm on the ride it till it breaks theory right now. Don't know if I care for the wheels too much. Probably going to end up running an I-9 combo of some sort. I'm going to put my Hope monos on it soon, my geared bike doesn't see much use these days.

    Livin' the dream.

    Yep.

    Last I'd heard, he is not building any longer, and now lives in CT, actually just down the road from me, though I've not met him. Granted, that was two years ago. Not sure on his current status. Website looks to have not been updated for a bit. No idea if he plans to do bike stuff again, but I'm glad I got this frame when I did. It has been a fabulously fun ride, and surely will continue to be so. It really has been a "do it all" bike.
