October 29th, 2013, 06:40 PM
This is my first ground up bike build. Thought I'd post it for public comment, maybe it will save me from some hangups down the road. The theme here is a semi lightweight, rigid 1x10 29er. Most of my riding is done at alum creek and chestnut ridge, so it doesn't get too wild and I want a fast flowy bike.

Frame: On One Scandal 29er
Headset: Cane Creek 40
Wheelset: ?Stans arch ex?
Pedals: ?platforms for winter, maybe wellgo magnesium?
Right Shifter: ?undecided between x9 or X0?
Shift Cable: black jagwire
Seat: ?Bontrager RXL?
Stem: ?Uno Al, maybe KCNC?
Brakes: ?XT, unsure of generation?

For chain ring I would go with a 36t
Nobby nick for f/r tires
Time 6 pedals for all seasons
Road tape for grips
Bb7 or current xt for brakes
Hylix ebay stem
Hylix ebay seatpost
Seat... the one that fits your butt

I would argue for Racing Ralph tires or something similar for this sort of build--they felt much faster to me than the Nobby Nic.

Check the max extension Niner allows above headset on their fork. I assume it's a carbon steerer, and those have max limits.

Looks like a fun build!

Picked up a hylix ultra light seatpost on ebay tonight for a good price. Claimed 178g for 31.6 410mm seems pretty darn good. They weren't even on my radar, thanks for the heads up.

I'm feeling like the 36t chainring might limit me on some of the steeper climbs on occasional trips, was hoping to maintain some granny gear capability with the 32t.

Thinking about rocket rons or racing ralphs for tires.

I'm going to cut the steerer once I get the headset, stem and bars sorted.

Crank will be here soon.

A 36 would limit your climbing. I was just suggesting that because you are building it for Chestnut and Alum. At those places I never leave my 36. But you are right at other places like great seal and Scioto trails or or ofstate you would need something lower

Crank came in today. I'm pleased with it. I went with a used Tuvativ Noir triple that I'll convert to single. I need to get a scale so I can get pre-assembly weights, seems pretty light though. Thinking about stripping the clear WW style to remove the wear marks and make it more pretty-er.

Looking at building some wider wheels instead of pre-built. Will be running them tubeless. Tips and opinions are definitely welcome, I'm getting into some really unfamiliar territory.

Rim: WTB i23 TCS KOM vs. Pacenti TL28 vs. Velocity P35 front/blunt sl rear
Hubs: Novatec d711sb/d712sb
Spokes: wheelbuilder DB14 vs. Sapim laser vs. sapim cx-ray
Nipples: aluminum vs. brass

Well I will put my two cents in the hat. I would choose the Velocity Rims, they have good reviews. I know nothing about the hubs you picked. They look really nice, but make sure the spoke holes will fit my next pick. the Sapin cx-ray spokes. There is a whole thing with the aluminum/brass question, I would stick with a qaulity brass nipple just for reliability and the weight is marginal. If you have never built up a complete wheel do your research first and do not rush the process, especially the truing part, it is not just like truing an allready built wheel. other than that have fun it is really cool riding on wheels that you built your self!

Thanks Redd, I think bladed spokes might take some doing. Those hubs aren't slotted for them. I'm looking forward to learning a new skill in wheel building though.
