WCB-M-062

My first build, wanted to do something a little different. So far I'm loving it on the local single track!

Eventually I may throw on a dropper post and rig it up to the unused front shifter, but for now I'm fine with the stop, drop, and roll routine at the top of the hill.

Nice bike! how is your shifting? I was under the impression that road levers and MTB derailleurs were not compatible because of differente pull ratios.

Thanks!

True for Shimano 11s, but that's why he's got a pull-ratio converter installed. Look at the small snail-like thingie just over rear derailleur.

Good eye! ;) I used this adapter from Wolf Tooth: https://www.wolftoothcomponents.com/products/tanpan It's basically just a set of pulley wheels that amplify the cable pull. So far it shifts fine. Not quite as crisp as a purely road or MTB setup, but the difference has been negligible.

Also, I don't think I'll ever be able to un-see the snail when I look at that thing now.

Good morning,
First post but but long time lurker.
I was wondering if anyone knew where I could find a picture of a large (19") FM-M009. I have seen quite a few mediums, but I cant seem to find one that is a confirmed large. Looking to build a new single speed over the next few months.

Thanks in advance, I have really enjoyed seeing everyone's rides!

Stumbled back here...Long road to get here. Initially bought frame from a member her with Peter honoring warranty. Ended up going thru 2 frames with cracking in the dreaded seatpost area. 3rd frame took a while to get to me due to production as per Peter. So far this current frame has noticeable reinforcement in the trouble areas. Much thicker for sure.

Very nice shot !
Mine is still going strong after 1+ year of abuse.
Got one before from the first batch, that had the seatpost crack too.

just got it done so far. just Shy of 19lbs large tideace m009 I believe. as l9ng as it doesn't break I'll be very happy. bb was a massive hurdle to overcome. it is just the size for standard 30mm bearing to fit in. that means no room for any sort of bb cups. I have to use the sleeve from a pf30 bb wrap it with tape so it would sit centre in the shell and then thread an m5 hole into it so I could affix it to the frame using the hole that's already there for the international routing access to keep the bearings
from being able to slide around and achieve proper preload on the crankset. then I used the inside of headset bearings to space out the crank arms to where I wanted them. took me a while.UPDATE (feeling like an idiot found out all i needed to do what get some "bb30 clips" and all my problems go away and the bike loses about 50 grams as well) .i managed to get a 38t chainring on there with a few mm to spare. should be ok I think. chainline is right at the 5th cog up from the 11t which is alright. used a spare 9 speed cassette spacer behind the cassette to push the cassette outwards which got me from the 4th cog up chainline to the 5th. 11t has just enough to still get good engagement with the spline.
I just stacked the headset spacers on top of the upper bearing. who needs a top cap anyways. works well.

I'll post more pictures of what I did with the bb area when my new shorted spindle shows up in a week or two and I have to diasemble it again.

decided to take the angel g3inder out. shaved a few mm off my hub cap got that 11t cog as close to the dropout as possible for best chain line. and had to shave the bootie off a bit on the crank arm. ain't going to get that chainline any better than that on this frame I don't think.

no I spec post came with the shifter so I just put an m5 bolt into the existing brake lever clamp hole from the opposite end. seems sturdy enough

only one problem remains. my seatpost keeps slipping and I am scared if I tighten it anymore it will brake the post. I used carbon paste but still no luck. any ideas?
