    Raw ,Nude and Happy

    Well, I finally did it.
    After building my first SS last summer, a 26'r Rocky Mountain Vertex,and racing it this year I decided I should build a 29'r SS. Today was my first ride. Spent the afternoon in the Durham Forest where our race series is...... I love it.

    I was thinking masochist with a chafing issues, so I was disappointed with the pictures I ended up seeing. Nice bike though.

    That looks really fast! I just ordered everything to build up a new SS a couple of days ago. I "almost" went with a One 9 but decided against the EBB.

    A freind of mine has an older ONE9 and when I'd end up behind him racing I'd often hear his EBB complaining, That was the one thing that held me back from buying one earlier.
    Another guy I met recently owns the newer version and and swore that all the moaning and groaning was illiminated with the new design. Mind you I have only put like 50km on it, but it does seem to be both solid and silent.

    I don't think it's eliminated, I seem to get about 500km before it starts to "click" and another few hundred after that before it moans and groans.

    Service is easy though so it doesn't bother me. If I'm doing a full strip down servicing the EBB only adds 15 minutes or so.

    I realize that I could have trimmed a bunch with lighter pedals and cranks, the STYLO cranks were on sale for $120. and I have 5 other bikes that all have time pedals and 3 pairs of cleated shoes, so changing NOW would be expensive

    Great looking bike. How do you like that fork?
