Well, it only took me 14-1/2 months to get it done, but with a little help from: the fine folks at UBI, Mr. Jim Kish, the Feds (i.e. my economic stimulus check), Dave & Jeremy @ TiCycles (check that satin finish!), and Sean @ Vertigo Cycles (thanks for the BB re-prep), she’s ready to roll.
The stats: 29er singlespeed mtn bike, Paragon sliding drops, RS Reba 80mm front fork, Chris King headset, WTB SS hubs laced to Salsa Race Disc rims with Wheelsmith stainless butted spokes. Gearing is 32-22 (Surly cogs front & back). Frame weight = 3.7 lbs, bike weight = 24.9 lbs. Super fun to ride – light, flickable, stiff, rolls fast. My first SS & first 29er.
