    Does this qualify as a Hybrid? My 1x10 creation built on an alum CX frame with carbon fork and Shimano MTB drivetrain.

    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!

    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.
    Pray for me. I have fallen into the clutches of the “Steel is Real” crowd, and I don’t know if I will ever be able to escape.

    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.

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

    Absolutly loving simplicity od 1x drivetrain...
