|2011 Specialized S-Works Stumpjumper Carbon 29 Singlespeed
|21? The biggest, whatever that is…
|2011 RockShox Reba S29 with carbon steerer (90 mm of travel)
|180 mm Lightning Cycle Dynamics carbon cranks (I removed all the stickers)
|32 x 20
|32-hole DT hubs (rear is singlespeed-specific)
Wheelsmith butted 14g spokes
aluminum spoke nipples
Stan's NoTubes ZTR Crest rims (I removed all the stickers)
hand built by me
Schwalbe 29 x 2.25 Racing Ralph tubeless tires
|The frame comes designed for a 140 mm disk brake rotor in the rear so I installed an adaptor and am running 160 mm rotors front and rear.
This is my primary/only mountain bike as of this writing.
Thanks to eBay I finally own a carbon fiber bicycle. What's more interesting than why it took me so long to get one is why I wanted one so bad in the first place when steel, aluminum and titanium have been serving me extremely well for decades…
This bike with suspension is 1.5 lb. lighter than my old mountain bike which was fully rigid, had a carbon fiber fork and really light wheels with folding tires! Holy crap. Technology marches on.
