Looking good, and should be plenty light. Only somewhat heavy piece on the bike is the Alivio cranks or Deore hubs. I'm going to guess in the 24-26 pound area based on my 23/24lbs SS that has a suspension fork.
My bikes: Mongoose Valiant, Tyax Elite, Switchback SS, Blackcomb, and the old DXR

Other: Origin8 Uno SS/fixie

Glad you're liking them Boomer, I've always heard nothing but good about Funn products.

Boomer's Genesis 29 SS

Got her done today. I am happy the way it turned out.

Image

I went with the Wicked rear disc conversion. I used one the existing holes in the frame and drilled out another. Then I used an M6 tap to thread it. Almost screwed up the second hole. It was off by a tad so I had to drill out the bracket holes just a little which is how I scratched the bracket. I'll fix that later.

After taking these pics I noticed the chain was skipping when popping wheelies. Realized I needed another link out of the chain so more chain would be on the rear cog.

Thanks guys.

The bike was a blast today. The Voodoo fork did a great job absorbing the trail chatter. It is a great fork for only $60.

I rode my usually 8 mile loop and I was 1:30 faster than my fastest time this year on my Geared Trek Cobia. :lol: I am using a Garmin to track the ride so it is accurate.

wow !! Faster on a single speed? I think it's because you never worry about changing gears..
And you know the trail well enough to know where you have get momentum..
It's the whole Oh Shit I gots only one gear I better keep pedaling thing...
Just be sure to ride in front if you are with a geared rider.
They always mess with my momentum when I need it,them and their silly granny gear. :twisted:
