Thread revive!

Been running this about 6 months now - totally sold on the AM ht concept

This morning was particularly meh weather but was made fun by bombing back down the singletrack on the way to work in the city.

Retired my old steel Eccentric...and built a new one.

Both M frames, old one was 650b, 415mm reach, 67.5ha, 73sta, 420cs. New one is 29er, 450mm reach, 65ha, 74sta, 430cs. It feels like a monster truck in comparison.

12 speed slx, dvo sapphire, dt swiss m1900



the paint is surprisingly awesome

Hardtail has changed it up a bit from when it was built up last xmas.

New additions are.
160mm Lyrik
Stans Flow MK3 wheels
Assegai EXO+ 2.5 front tyre
Aggressor 2.5 rear tyre
Saint M820 brakes
XTR M9020 cranks with 34t wolftooth ring
DMR V12 Mag pedals
60mm stem (was 50 will likely go back to 50 again)
Easton Havoc carbon bars.

Future changes ......
140mm air shaft.
Considering trying the Aggressor on the front and putting a 2.4 rekon on the back to make it roll a little faster. Currently it is crossing over with my dually a little more than it needs to.
Getting rid of the 150mm transfer and changing it out for a 180mm OneUp in black to match the forks.... and longer.
A longer frame (this is maybe a year away)

Had the frame powder coated, Illusion purple, and built it up single speed. Really liking the simplicity though am constantly searching for the shifter;)

One issues I’m finding is the oval chainring seems to grab the chain every 6 revolutions... nothing bad just catches and feels a little rough.

You have to run the tension pretty loose on a narrow/wide ring to stop it binding. bit a loose chain is a fast chain! If it’s a new ring it will also wear smooth after a few km too. The bike looks great!

Many singlespeeders swear by the oval rings, not my cuppa though, can't see how having the chain tighten and loosen all the time could be good. If you've got a spring loaded tensioner it should be fine, have you checked your driveline is dead straight? And doess the tensioner have enough play for the chain?

Woohoo, I get to post in this thread!

This is Mr beefy. Mr beefy is daniel Hale's old cotic bfe, stripped, rusted, rebuilt, and ridden like it's stolen. It was built on a budget, toying around with a few madcap ideas, but it rides like I sat down and planned everything out to perfection.

I honestly wouldn't have bothered with this if I hadn't hurt myself earlier in the year. I was bored with a ton of time on my hands so I toyed with the idea of an am hardtail.

Fark, Mr beefy is FUN!

I still need to learn how to ride a big travel hardtail properly. I'm smoothing out a bit now but at first it was like I was expecting the full 160 squish out the back all the time and couldn't reconcile that jarring.
