    Top 12 SS Bikes of 2008 seen on MTBR?

    Let's assume we are making a theoretical 2009 calendar of the top 12 SS bikes from MTBR for 2008... post up what you think should be included!

    Well I like this one but I may be a little biased...

    I'll take a look through the ss pics thread and post up a few more I like tomorrow... I'm partial to Jabbers and Singulars... oh and moots... mmmmmm pretty bikes. Not a big jones or mcclung fan though so my selections will probably be drowned out by jones lovers.

    +1 for that one. That's a beautiful bike. Theres a red niner on here somewhere with a WB Rock Solid that's awesome too. And any of the singulars. Oh you know that spot that's got the custom paint should be in there too.

    Sorry you failed to mention the criteria in the original post. To me a TOP SS bike has to have "Style and Flavor" plus it needs to get ridden, not just look good and have a bunch of bling bling crap.

    With out question; ptwoods McClung.

    See example #1. The thread of the year:
    https://forums.mtbr.com/singlespeed/my-new-mcclung-453309.html

    Example #2. The bike:


    pt's is the yellow one, but the blue one is pretty damned cool too.

    +1 for the Jabber, but, hands down, the singular, most gorgeous bike I've seen on this forum is this Eriksen titanium.

    Wow, that Erickson is sweet....nice clean look. I also really like Baycat's blue bike although I have no idea what it is....

    of course I'm biased towards the SOMA's and the Jabbers :-)

    How about next time you can only nominate other people's bikes? That way we don't end up with another "post your SS" thread full of people who think their bike is better than everyone else's?

    Anyway, I vote for this Wolfhound

    we always get lots of comments on Seans Ti Goat

    Sinjins 29er

    and Darrells as well


    and while we are at, I dont see any dirty pics so here is mine from the local trail on Thursday

    That red and blue De Salvo is sweet except for the stupid tires and the 32x22 gear combo.

    Williamf777 has a sick bike. Here it is actually getting used (in a race none the less).

    no hating taken, especially since none of the cranks have a stock bashring on them. Maybe not the fanciest of bashrings but none are stock ones. What would you suggest?

    bash it

    sorry to engage you in a conversation about the one component that does the least on the bike. I guess i am just a style nazi and deserve to be riding a vintage FUJI fixie. but since we are talking about it... the one on the ti bike, i have also. it came with my FireX SS crank and i took it off immediately. my other bike is set up for 1-9 so i needed one to replace the big ring. I picked up this MRP ring. thought it was the nicest. the one on the SS tomac i saw on ebay and went to the guys canadian website. they are thin crossdrilled, anodized any color, and only like 10-15 bucks. I like both a lot! I was looking at the E13 polycarbonate rings (cool colors, clear, beefy, expensive) but i didn't want to look like a Trials guy.

    hell yeah

    not a fan of bashrings here, and funny how everyones bashrings doesn't even have a single ding on it. as for top 12, i vote cibi's 2 bikes, the rockhopper and fuji. and of course, justin fox's hardrock.

    Totally agree on the bashring issue. Bashrings on singlespeeds are over-rated.

    I'll have to take some pics of my bashring. I try not to use it whenever I can help it but on the occasions where I miscalculate a log or get a little too brave, I'm glad it's there. Definitely has dents and dings, maybe these guys are just so good they never use it.

    I like all the singlespeeds shown except that McClung. Sorry, but that 1903 look does nothing for me. I bet it rides great.
    My rides:
    Lynskey Ti Pro29 SS
    RM Suzi Q 90 RSL
    KHS Team 29

    I finished building this one 01/10/08, and have been riding it (hard) ever since...


























    I have more modern bikes, and a nice steel s/s hardtail, but none of them "connect" me to the trail like this old Klein.

    Mine do have some scratches. Also, judging by some posts, it might not be a bad idea to reinforce the spider on 4 bolt cranks with something: a bashring should do that quite nicely.

    I vote for the Bacon-Wrapped/fried Twinkies.


    Actually the best looking SS is the Orange Wolfhound... That gets my vote!

    Yes I did and have before.

    Don't get me wrong that is an awesome bike. I love it, I just think of a SS MTB differently. I could ride any bike offroad, but it isnt deigned as a mtb.

    Maybe If this was the top 10 SS CX or fixie bikes thread I would then cast my vote for it.

    The only SDO's wich are "acceptable" in my opinion are those from blackcat cycles.

    Above is all IMHO of course and owners should not feel personally attacked from my aesthetic judgement.

    It is not mine. When I heard it is for sale I asked about the price but it was a bit more than I could make.

    Frank, I use bash guards to protect the chain due to rocks and logs, yes I have broken chains on rock crossings.

    The orange vassago, minus the fork crown, looks like my girlfriends 15" Monocog 29er. Complete with that box where the top tube meets the headtube, and the dreaded sloping top tube. Eek!

    Listen!

    New to the SS, 29er world. Was looking for low cost of entry. Spent well under a grand for this little diddy.

    Continue to surprise myself with the stuff that I am getting up and over on this thing. What a blast!!

    Best part, is going back to the FS bike and surprising your buddies with sudden and vastly improved technique/conditioning.

    I agree that is a beautiful bike... I'm just not sure what I think about those spokes... and the saddle is boring for a bike like that... however, in motion with a rider you probably wouldn't notice either... so nvm.

    At least one of the top twelve has to NOT be Ti w/ matching hubs/headsets/seat collar/brakes/I9s etc.
    If you make a calendar, please make a few of them original bikes and not the usual carbon copies.
    I see these astounding, light SSs and they all look alike. Hell, I have one! Moots w/ all the usual ano accents. The Klein listed on pg 3 is astoundingly original next the rest.
    Throw on the usual suspects but the best of each-
    -Superfly
    -A handful of small frame builders, BlackSheep and a Jones Spiceframe or two w/ requisite jungle gym fork.
    -Add one retro version. Not a blinged out double top tube retro wannabee- I mean one of those bikes that just never dies and it's rider just keep taking it out day after day. Brakes shouldn't be the same manufacturer.
    -OK, the retro double top tube McClung or whatever- they are beautiful so a perfect version of that.
    -Perhaps the occasional road version? Hipster Fixie DuJours version of simplicity taken too far.
    -Full suspension SS?
    -All mountian, large travel SS
    -What about one of those Pugsleys that was set up for that bizarre Alaska trek? One brake and a raft attached.
    -A childs kick bike to show all of us that a SS can be made even simpler.
    -And last and perhaps least- that astounding crap wagon that we all click on- the one w/ the post title- "Look at what I just built!". It's usually some old hammered sh!t barge that the owner trashed for years w/ gears and just yanked the mechs off. Now, that rider has found the religon of SS and we should all be envious since we'll never be able to feel that astounding grace that fully again.

    I'm not really down with anodized parts. I prefer rigid and am torn between disc or rim brakes. I think what should happen is a poll should be taken on what people like and choose the top twelve based off percentages.

    Crazy Fred and JohnnyCB,

    Thanks for the on my Klein. Out of all the bikes stacked and hanging in the garage, it's the one that grabs me by the short hairs.



    I get it dirty every chance I can:












    But I usually wash it off when I'm done riding....

    Pereira Roaring 29 er anyone?

    I'm surprised this one hasn't showed up. I like all of the tech style builds with matching colors, but the ones that blend old school charm with modern technology, beautiful brazing and paint really does it for me.

    Nice 1:1 gear ratio. Is that some sort of trials bike. What's up with the saddle angle?

    Agreed. That bike is a freakin' work of art. Yes, ART. I said it, let the storm begin.

    Truly a wealth of useless information.

    Idea! Gay Face

    Allroy: Between the gay face, the pink cables and the pricey frame, and the narcissist staging of the photographer on a bike ride, the irony of it all is your defining of glamor. At least the staged bike photos aren't frontin'

    [QUOTE=Allroy]What's with all the glamor shots. I thought bikes were meant to be ridden.

    But in all fairness, I like glamor and I like sharing. Thanks for sharing.

    What gear ratio is that rockhopper?? Is that a 42 or 44 in front?

    Ohh, pick me, pick me.

    Not a bling-machine...but so dang fun.

    To be fair, it's a 2008 frame and fork, but was completed June 2009.

    Before anyone starts............

    The Ti SS gets the crap beat out of it weekly and a friend of mine switched to his pedals and did a 10 mile lap on it, he weighs 315lbs. I've started compiling parts to get it below 14lbs.

    +1 on that amazing aqua rockhopper.
    and a vote for any singular- one of the hottest frames IMO

    Saweeeet! I used to sell a ton of those. Still have headset bearings and the press if you're even in a bind (har har).

    Hey, that's no kids bike! I won the California state championship last year on that bike in the 36-40 cruiser class! Oh wait...I'm just an older kid.
