That's sweeeet! I never get old of blacked out.

Q: do you not use a chain catcher of some sort up front? I have a 1x9 also. The crank has a bash guard on the outside but the chain sometimes fell on the inside on bumps so I added a K-Edge Cross Catcher.

Nice bike too.
Good info, thanks!

As an old BMX'er that raced a SuperGoose back in the early 80's, I really dig the classic Mongoose frame sticker. Classy move.

I picked up my 2013 Fuji Absolute 2.1 today! Still stock components with a few additions (pump, saddlebag).





Cheers!

Thanks Dude, I thought it looked pretty classy as well. They made a lot of nice bikes before they became a walmart brand.

God damn, I just love looking at all these bikes.

I think that bikes and cats have a lot in common, in that I have never seen a bike or cat that I didn't like the look of.

How do you keep the chain on the chain ring? No issues?

Thanks for the info I often think about going single at the front, but worry about loosing the chain.

I'm almost 2 years now on 1x setup...and so far I had these combos of which all work without any problem (loosing the chain):

1x9, rear der. Deore M592 long cage, SS chainring FSA, Superstar Components chain guide...
1x9 rear der. Sram X7 mid cage, SS chainring FSA, Superstar Components chain guide...
1x10 rear der. Deore LX long cage, RaceFace NW chainring...
1x10 rear der. ZEE short cage, RaceFace NW chainring...

Absolutly loving simplicity od 1x drivetrain...
