This is my new mountain bike. It will be single speed after the winter. So far, a pretty sweet ride. Lots of fun. Responsive, and nimble.
*UPDATE* So now that I have been riding this bike on dirt/mud, I can is pretty sweet. I put the Zertz carbon post to help with some dampening, and switched back to Ergon grips with bar ends. Now, I am into this bike. Needs better wheels (Stan's Crest are in it's future). Thing rips and is pretty light for an aluminum hardtail, weighs in at 23.3 pounds. The wheels on it, are tanks. Could shave a pound, easy.

It rides surprisingly supple for an aluminum hard tail!




Winter in New England, is hard for single speed. Riding in the snow is nice with gears. I love the 1 X 10, but I seem to actually be faster on a single speed. The only times I think I am slower than a geared bike, is on a flat straight trail. Twisty singletrack, and climbs, I am faster. Plus, I enjoy racing the single speed class.
Who knows though, I may just leave the gears. I am building a nice light wheelset for the bike, and have a couple other plans for it. As it sits, it is 23 pounds. I can shave at least a pound with wheels.

Funny, most people make

Funny, most people make their mtbs single speed for winter purposes. Leave the gears! Believe me, the possibilities are much greater.
I want one!


+1. 1x10 is the way to go. Faster going up, down and all around.
