So here it is...my newly finished Inbred build. I've only been able to get it on the trails once, for about 3 hrs, but the ride was amazing. I'm still getting it dialed in, but even still, it's the most comfortable bike I've ever ridden. BTW, this is the 21", and with shoes I'm just under 6'2" with about a 35" inseam, fits like a glove. I keep kicking myself because the pre-builts are being offered for about half what I have in this one, so I have to remind myself how much more persoanlized this one is. I do like all the silver components though.....

Only thing left to do...

..is install a 185mm disc up front, move the 160mm to the rear, and get some Avid levers. I'd really like to try a Fleegle bar too.

After some changes and tweaks....

I've got it pretty much where I want it.

Originally, I was running a surly rear hub, but after deciding to put on a rear disc brake, and the ability to run cassette cogs rather than messing with freewheels, I rebuilt the rear wheel with a nashbar (novatec) SS rear disc hub.

The run-down:

-21" Inbred frame/ fork, Aheadset head set.
-Rhyno Lyte 36h rims laced to Nashbar SS rear disc hub, and DT Onyx front disc hub.
-Exiwolf's f/r. (Little Alberts on the way, Exi's suck for the the muddy clay here in TN)
-old school White Industries square tap 180mm cranks, 94 bcd. Shimano BB.
-Surly 32t chainring, 22t cog. Also 18t (current) and 15t at my disposal.
-Avid bb7 185mm front disc
-Avid bb7 160mm rear disc
-Avid Speed Dial 7 levers
-Thompson seat post
-WTB Laser V chromo rail saddle (COMFY!)
-Truvativ Team 100x5 stem
-Syntace Vector Low-rise 16 deg bar, 700mm wide (Just switched out the Mary's for these, havn't had 'em on the trails yet)
-Oury grips

Current weight:about 28 lbs, with mud.

I LOVE this bike. It really feels like an extension of my self out on the trails, eventhough I'm still getting used to it. My confidence on it is building rapidly.

I removed part of the middle cable run on the to tube due to excessive bruise build up on the inside of my right knee.

Great looking bike!

Where did you find the 180mm cranks? I have 175s on my Fat Chance geared bike and I'd love a set of 180s for my next singlespeed.

Thanks. I scored those cranks off eBay months back for about $150. Though, I've thought about selling them to get a set of ENO's since these are triple ring cranks.

That is one nice looking Inbred with all of the silver components; If that thing rides as nice as it looks, then I must say that I might not have bought my custom had the 'bred been around a year ago. Enjoy.

Those Inbreds sure are good looking bikes. Congrats on the new ride.

2nd time in a week that I've seen those clear Oury grips? Prior to that, it had been like 10 years since I'd seen them. Is this a new fashion trend?

Especially like those cranks ...

I'm not sure about that. I actually wanted to get white ones, but when I was ordering some stuff from wherever i was ordering from at the moment, they didn't have white, so I went with clear. I didn't think any of the other colors would look very good and black's out of the question. Im gonna get some white ones in the near future though. Oury's kick ass.

Thanks man. I didn't want to do the black components on a white bike, seems like every white bike has all black components. It was a PITA though, trying to find the right stem and cranks in silver, but I'm really happy with how it turned out.

The ride is better than I could have imagined. Like I said, it truly feels like an extension of my self. Getting in and out of the saddle for climbs and stuff feels so natural, like the bike is a part of me. I can't find the right words to explain it, but I've never experienced anything like it with any bike I've ever had.
