    SS MTB thread

    I searched and couldn't find anything on the specific topic of SS MTB. Can we start up a photo/general discussion thread?

    I know this topic may span 2 different sections of BF, but I figured this was the most appropriate section due to the SS/FG nature.

    This is my commuter bike. $100 de-logoed Crappy Tire (google it) Super Cycle SC1800 18 sp MTB. I removed the drivetrain and shifters, put on an SRAM S100 48T crankset and a Shimano 18T freewheel. It no longer has that lighting/generator system, but it does have cheap black plastic fenders. This pic shows the bike as of last year. This summer I installed Specialized Fat Boy 26 x 1.25 slicks but winter is coming so the Kenda knobbies will have to be re-installed.

    I've got some Fat Boys too, right now the bike's in road form until my knee heals up, then it's back to knobbies. It's a Fetish cycles frame, with some crappy components I had lying around. I'm running 32/13 gearing, but I'm going to change it up soon.

    There was a post-apocalypse bike thread some months back. For some reason that GT seems to me to belong there. What are the wheels?

    This was last year's winter bike:



    With the studded tires, it handled the winter well:

    I would love to have an 80s/90s rigid Stumpjumper or Bridgestone MB series.

    120 rear, 110 front. I have some spacers on either side of the hub to make it work with the GT.
