I love this bike! I had it built for this past summer, after realizing that 29ers are definitely the way to go in long distance races. I spent i long time designing the geometry, and think i came up w/ the best design for me. Basically making the wheelbase as short as possible so it still handles like a 26" bike.

Shifters:XO trigger rear, XO grip shift front
Front Derailleur:Sram X9 (lighter then XTR)
Rear Derailleur:Sram XO
Derailleur Cables:Nokon Gold
Cassette:Shimano XTR
Chain:Sram PC 990
Cranks:Shimano XTR 970
Bottom Bracket:XTR
Pedals:XTR

Hub Skewers:KCNC green

really, really nice. How's the Thomson stem holding up? looking at doing the same myself but not sure if the twin bolts are enough on a single speed.

Lovely bike.....as for the Thomson? I ride my road Spanky singlespeed 48/18 and mash up some steep hills...I'm not a small chap either :oops:
Reckon it will be fine and much better looking than the MTB version.

thanks for the kind words. As for the Thomson, I've had no issues what so ever, even though it is a road stem. I actually just got a Seven Ti stem for it, that I'm going to be putting on soon.
