Here is mine.
Currently SS'ed 32/21.
Is that the "magic gear" to run it as a SS or your preference (or both?). Anything special needed to be done to run it as a SS? Do you have any pics of the drivetrain side of the bike? Thanks!

Yep, magic gear.
Apparently there are a couple that will work.

Brand new, never even seen the interwebs photos: bike has one ride on it.
Build = XT / X9 / Elixir CR / Fox F29 100 / Mavic/Hope wheels and uh... a lot of red bling. Oh, yes, and a 2x9 with bash guard because i'm that guy.

Sadly the photos aren't stellar since I can't carry my DSLR in the ol camelbak. (I'll get some real ones soon, PROMISE!)





A little "Scenic" view:


Last one


And there she is: I am in love. It's a small, because I'm 5'6" ish, and coming off my AM squishy bike it took about 5 minutes to learn how to ride - but she is FAST. She came in @ 25.8 lbs with tubes, when there's UST rims and tires i'll make that upgrade.

I'm in love though, these pictures do it absolutely no justice, the bike is gorgeous and she rides very well, at 125 lbs i'm no test of frame stiffness but I felt it was a great ride, and I definitely get the 29er hype now.

Cheers!

How are the Spinergys holding up
No Complaints! :thumbsup: Just wish they were lighter... No where near the advertised weight. Little over 1950 grams for the set. They have been bombproof so far, but I never get more than about 2-3 ft. of air. I am in the process of building a Voodoo Canzo which will have 4" of travel in the rear and 120mm Reba up front, then I will feel a little more confident with catching some bigger air. I do not know how far you can push a frame like the Mamasita. :confused:

First off, that's a really nice looking bike, sweet build. Second, is that Wakefield Regional Park?

Finished building my sexy mama today. Still need to do some things (cutting brake lines ...). It's my first 29er and my first rigid. In the last pic she's with the other members of the stable :D
