    Siren Twinzer Singlespeed 29er

    I just wanted to share my new Siren Twinzer.

    The steel frame has a blueish, purpleish, somewhere in between powdercoat. Paragon sliders for tensioning duties, and a 44mm headtube for a little future proofing (tapered forks).

    Brakes: Shimano XT
    Fork: Fox F29 Terralogic
    Drivetrain: Shimano XT crank arms, Salsa chainring, Chris King cog, KMC singlespeed chain
    Cockpit: Thomson X4 stem, Thomson Elite seatpost, Specialized Phenom saddle, Kona OE 710mm polished silver flat bar
    Rollers: DT 240s QR15/Stans 355 & DT 240s SS/Stans Arch mated with Specialized Captain 29x2.0 tires

    They are building me a Twinzer Frame too

    Mine is gonna be Large in Chocolate but sticking with the 1/18 steer tube but going with a Fox 15mm TA fork. Over all a similar build to the OPs. I actually Emailed Brendan complimenting that Twinzer Build and becoming more excited about mine.

    To Dan at home brewed, I just received the brown Spiderless chain ring from you for a ENO crank, well its going on a Twinzer.

    Hows that bike ride anyway? Is it a good climber? Hope it ant too flexy

    Lovely bike.. and the forks look good w/o the logos. I'd never tire of that colour either, it's really nice.

    The bike rides fantastic for me. Fit wise, it puts me in a very balanced position when standing on climbs. With my weight back a bit to help with traction on looser trails, I haven't found myself needing to fight a wandering front wheel.

    I don't sense any lateral flex, but there seems to be just enough compliance there that helps lessen the trail buzz.

    That exactly what I wanted to hear. Mine is almost done however I will probably take me till after Christmas to get the rest of the bike together.

    Beautiful bike! I think Brendan Collier deserves a shoutout on this forum for not only producing beautiful bikes, but for being a class-act guy too (at least when he isn't growing a moustache). He runs a shop up in Idyllwild, CA and is hands down the best shop in southern Ca.

    The Hub Cyclery of Idyllwild CA, Purveyors of Fine Bikes at 5,500 ft.

    Check out his "Syracuse Orange" rigid 1x9. It's a beaut.

    Very nice. Love the color, too.

    I'll be interested to hear about your experience with the slider dropouts.

    Very nice lines. It is hard to get a 44mm HT to look good on a steel frame but that is not too bad. I wonder how much more stress a tapered steerer puts into the HT/TT/DT junction?
