    No, this isn't just an excuse to post up pics of my SS. I know lot's of us have SS's and I don't think I've seen them all--so let's post them up. Feel free to post pics and build specs.


    Here's mine. It's an '07 Fetish Fixation. I went from a Performance brand Access frame that was given to me. I had to run a chain tensioner on that and hated it. I am so glad I went to a frame with horizontal drop-outs. It weighs in at 26.4 lbs, but I'm a big guy at 215, so I'm glad it's burly. I am curently running a 32:20 but am thinking of switching to a 32:18 soon.

    Build specs:

    Frame: Fetish Cycles Fixation
    Fork: Rock Shox Reba Race Dual Air 100mm
    Rear cog: Niner, 20t
    Bars: Easton EA50
    Cranks: Simano LX w/ integrated BB
    Headset: Chris King
    Brakes: Hayes HFX-9's with Red Dangerboy levers (levers not in picture)
    Seatpost: Thomson
    Stem: Thomson
    Wheels: Mavic 819's on XT hubs
    Tires: Maxxis Ignitors, UST, 2.35 front, 2.1 rear

    After riding this bike in the parking lot at the Fully one Thurs. It got me thinking about getting a 29er, so it'll be all your fault if I get one! ;)

    Here is my Cove Stiffee that I threw together with spare parts (except the wheels that I borrowed from my Burner) a few weeks ago. I've only ridden it once at the Blackstar newbie ride and enjoyed it a lot. I only have the Gussett conversion with an 18 tooth rear cog so I'd like to get a 20 so I can do some steeper climbs w/o dieing. It weighs in a hair over 25lbs.
