Hopefully this hasn't been done on this forum yet, I couldn't find a similar thread.

Anyway, I am new to the SS scene and getting totally hooked. I had a 6hour singletrack ride yesterday and loved it. Although it rained, was cold, had wet roots and rocks - it still rocked!

So, when getting a frame I had a hard time finding a "definite" gallery of different setups. Maybe this thread can become just that for future prospects and projects?

Here's my first SS bike - after 16years of mountainbiking.

I want a ride report on that zion frame. I am looking for my first ss specific frame, and want to go disc and you can't beat 300 shipped, post a ride report! Pics of my current conversion ss to follow! How big is your rear tire? An earlier post said the biggest that would fit is a 2.3 (tight) Sorry about the hijack, that is just the first zion I've seen posted.

My Jamis

my converted Jamis Durango SX
my Waltworks 29er EBB SS is getting her clothes right about now (at the powdercoater) so hopefully i will be posting the "blue bomber" before too long.
in the meantime, my old standby for the past 9 months:

- nice, heavy (4.85 lbs) aluminum frame - great geometry, though
- Marzocchi Marathon SL 85mm ('03 model)
- ubiquitous Chris King headset
- XT/717 disc wheelset with 2.4 Mutanoraptors (size matters)
- Avid BB-5's with Straightjackets (highly recommended)
- custom bent (read: crash; carefully straighten lever, crash again; carefully straighten other lever, repeat... :p ) Avid SD-7 levers.
- Monkey Lite XC risers with Rogue clamp on grips
- Bontrager stem (minus the really ugly stickers)
- Maxm carbon post (nice ride)
- Serfas saddle with Ti rails
- Truvative Stylo SS cranks, 180mm, 32t ring
- Gigapipe BB (not too happy with it)
- 18t Gusset'r steel cog and spacer kit(damn this thing is holding up!)
- KMC chain (great master link)
- Soulcraft Convert- set it and forget it. (quiet, too)
- Candy SLs
