    This may be the ultimate poor man's Rivendell for me. The RBW bike that really does it for me is the 26" version of the Atlantis and this particular size Stumpjumper and Rockhopper from the early...

    wheelbase vs front-center/rear-center

    What do you think has the largest impact on the ride of a bike, overall wheelbase or the relative measurements for front-center and rear-center?

    For example, I have a 1992 Specialized Rockhopper. ...

    Picked up this 92-93 Rockhopper frameset to build up as a single-speed. It came with canti's but I hate messing with canti's so I'm waiting for payday so I can buy some V-brakes to put on it. It's...

    I bought the frame specifically for a SS project and ended up buying a new bottom bracket and a spacer kit for the rear wheel. Everything else, including the chain that is now on it, I already had...

    Thanks for measuring that! Definately a 19" for me and it would have been a disaster if I had found and bought a 22"!

    Strangely, just an hour ago one of the IBob members posted his 19"...

    I really, really like this!! I've wanted a simple make-me-feel-like-a-kid-again single speed bike for several years now and I'm just putting the finishing touches on my build. I want my SS to be...

    Since you are taking an open-minded approach to this search, check out the Handsome Cycles Devil. It has 73/73 head/seat angles, 70mm BB drop, 45mm rake and forward facing dropouts that can give you...

    For you guys who have Rockcombo's, what is the seat-tube measurement from the center of the bottom bracket to the top of the seat-tube? I've seen Specialized specs but they list it as...

    I got the bottom bracket installed from the driver side and it's completely flush up against the shell. However, the non-drive side sleeve is tightened down but there is still four threads worth of...

    The frame and parts should start arriving tomorrow and hopefully I'll get this thing put together over the weekend. I'm looking forward to the process itself.

    UPDATE:

    1) I bought a crank puller and the crank is now off the bicycle. The original bottom bracket spindle is 126mm long in a 68mm BB shell. My understanding is that the frame I'll soon be...

    I'm going to swing by an LBS on my lunch break today and buy a crank puller so I can get the cranks off and actually measure the spindle my crankset was mounted on. I'll be installing this on a 1992...

    I also just discovered that there are different types of square taper spindles. My crankset is a Takagi from Japan so likely JIS. Is this the norm for cartridge BB from Shimano or Tange or are...
  14. New bottom bracket installation question...see last post.

    I am going to remove a crankset (but NOT the bottom bracket) from a bike and then install a new bottom bracket and that crankset on another bike. I've watched numerous videos and read a couple of...

    I just picked up a 1992 partial Rockhopper that will take the place of the bike in the OP as my single-speed project. The first bike will probably move to the back burner for now but I'll eventually...

    I've got two 1995 Trek 730's and they are great bikes! The catalog weight for the 730 (if it really has any meaning) was just over 25 lbs so your 750 should be easy to lighten up.

    I'm holding out for a frame with appropriate dropouts now. I think the only thing I'll need to buy is a spacer kit (rather buy than make) and some shorter chainring bolts to convert my triple to a...

    I can feel the wobble at any given speed with just me riding the bike. The wheel seems straight in the fork but the clearances are a bit different in the back so maybe the rear triangle is out of...

    I've been on the look-out for a frame with suitable dropouts but for now, I've got vertical so a tensioner will be necessary. I want a sport MTB for this project, like a 90's Bridgestone MB or...

    slight "wobble" in bike while riding.

    I've got a 20 year-old frameset that has a very slight wobble when riding it, very much like an incompletely seated tire or untrue wheel. I've taken my custom built wheels (that run 100% smooth) and...
  21. Thinking about building a SS from a multi-gear bike.

    I've got an old bike that I really like and I'm seriously considering converting it into a decent single-speed. My plan is to remove the cassette and go the cog + spacers route for the rear. For...

    I just wear relatively snug fitting sweatpants shorts...commando, of course. I find that baggy shorts tend to ride and bunch up in all kinds of uncomfortable ways and sometimes they even catch on...

    No, I was just making my lunch-time rounds of the pawn shops around work. I did find an online photo of a 91 model that simply looked solid yellow so I think it was just filthy. I can't even say it...

    Did Miyatas come with paintjobs that look like someone randomly spattered a different color paint all over the frame? It's very yellow with black streaking throughout the frame. I assumed it was...
  25. 1991 Miyata Elevation 300....should I be interested in this bike?

    I found a 1991 Miyata Elevation 300 (assumption based on bright yellow color and a quick Google search) for $49. The seat-tube says "splined" "triple butted" and I think something indicating that...
