    What would you call this?

    96er rigid hardtail SS with a 2-ring crank and Paul tensioner?

    I call it my Carver 2-Ner

    If I was explaining it to my mother I would call it a 2 speed mountain bike with a larger wheel in the front than in the back. If I was explaining it a mtn biker I would call it a 69er dinglespeed.

    a dirty ss 69'er (the dirty is for the two ring crank)
    I lubed my disc brakes because they squeaked.
    Man was that fun to work out

    this bike doesn't know what it wants to be.... "Should I be single speed? Hm. maybe...Do I wanna be a big wheel bike...hm sorta. I'll kinda try it all"
    I'll call this the "Wanna Be".

    There is an art, or rather, a knack to flying. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.

    On second thought...

    Deuce.


    Two wheel sizes.
    Two gears.
    And it's the sh*t.

    Old thread, but I thought I'd update to say I liked the idea so much, I recently converted a SS road frame to a dinglespeed CX using this set-up.
