I almost bought a 1x9 before I picked up the Pitch but I didn't think it would have enough range for me. During the HC24 I never got out of the middle ring on the front so a 1x10 or 11 might do it. I didn't even know there was a 1x12 option.

That bike looks awesome

My last two bikes I removed the big chainring and threw on a thin aluminum bash guard because I never was using that ring. Most of the racers in my neck of the woods are still running a 2x up front for the gear range. My bike is purely for fun, so I picked components that could handle any trail that I might find in Michigan. It does that in spades...

That's a nice setup!

I'm running a 1x9 on a Chromag Aperture and have no issues riding down here in the flatlands, but like you, I ride for fun and like the maintenance free aspect of not running a front derailleur.

After looking at some of the bike manufacturers mentioned that I haven't heard about before (Evil and Chromag) I kinda have the desire to buy a frame and try building something over the winter. I think I could transfer the wheels/tires, and brakes over but would need the remainder of the parts.

I could google this but I like the discussion here, would I need a bunch of specialized tools to put one together? I know there is a bottom bracket or crank wrench. The remaining parts look like hex wrench type work.

Very cool frame for a great price.

You do need a few special tools, but a 6 pack can go a long way at a local bike shop when it comes to advice and/or borrowing a tool or two onsite. Years ago I picked up a bike maintenance book at a bookstore. That and YouTube are a huge help for maintaining and building bikes-I've built three this way.

Thanks. Picked it up a couple years ago when Chromag was clearing out 2014 frames for super cheap. I may be one of the few guys left around here riding a 26er!

I'm still riding a 26er. I'm not racing and just out having fun so don't feel a need to spend money on a new ride when this one does just fine.
