    Singular photos: Post here!

    There was talk of someone starting a Singular pic thread ... so I figured I'd jump in and make it happen...

    This morning at the trailhead I ran into Dave (SlowerthenSnot I believe) and his fixed Singular Gryphon... so here's an unusual site: 2 Singular's at a Colorado trailhead (Shinglemill Trail @Buffalo Creek).

    I broke my thumb so I had to add a suspension fork to mine.


    But I love that rigid fork! Looking forward to being able to use it again (but honestly I'm kind of digging the squishy fork right now).

    Nice Jersey... you get that from Sam or does Marty have 'em? PM me.

    Singular photos: Post here!

    I've been interested in buying a Singular for a long time due to the geometry and generous head-tube length, but can't now seem to find the company's US site. Can someone help a brother out and forward the link?

    Also, is there any reason to be scared of the eccentric? Does it creak? Any other weak links? Are the tubes prepped with frame saver?

    Thanks!

    No issues with the eccentric. Like any EBB they enjoy it when you use a torque wrench to adjust. You must prep your own frame.

    I'm running flat bars (w/ Ergon's w/ bar ends) and a 100mm 6* stem - just switched from a Monkey-lite lo-rise which had a flipped 6* stem, and it seems pretty darn comfy... I may take a small spacer out just to drop it a few mm.

    As for fork - I've got a Fox F29 at 100mm and the bike is a dream! I rode rigid on a few bikes - and even this one for a bit - but I'm 45 years old and I can do more with the Fox and ride much longer ...

    Good luck!

    They come faced, chased and treated with Framesaver, or at least they did when I got mine.

    Love this bike! Bought the frame and fork and have had zero issues with the EBB or any other aspect of this frame and fork.

    Shown as I had it set up for the Gravel World Championships in Lincoln, Nebraska Saturday.

    Thanks! The link to the US dealer (Prairie Peddler) on the UK site is busted.

    Oh yeah... that's right, mine was framesavered. They even say that they are on their site.

    Excellent thread! Mine's still a work in progress. Hopefully I'll be able to build her up in the next week or so. mmmmm...

    A Gryphon build you don't see often...

    Tried Midges, then tried Woodchippers. Liked it at first but grew to really hate drops, but that wasn't the Gryphon's fault. For giggles I put some wide Salsa flat bars on and instantly fell in love with this bike. It's faster than I am for sure. And the EBB? It just works. Never slips, never creaks, doesn't need any voodoo like my Biocentrics.

    I've seen it mentioned before that Singular forks are fantastic and it's true - I don't know what magic fairy dust they sprinkle on these things but whatever it is, it's good stuff.

    Cool! I like some of the set ups here. I've been happy with mine, but then I 'should' be, right?

    The first batch are shots customers have sent over. Mine soon.

    and some of my personal stash.
    The Gryphon. Set now with Woochippers, and I like them better. Still not totally sure about the drop bar thing though...at least for racing.
    DSC_0514

    The Kite. Really like it, and its become my main road bike. Production versions should be available by December or so. Not in time for the season, unfortunately. I'll need to have a fund raising sale to get them in though. I now have some FSA bars, and matching pink housing on it, but other wise, the same.

    Carbon fork.

    Couple versions of the Peregrine. First set up was a flat bar, old school mtb style. Worked and rode well like this. Kinda like an old Bridgestone MB-1.
    Singular Peregrine
    Then went to SS and woodchippers. AWESOME gravel grinder like this.
    SIngular Peregrine
    And the next set up is an Alfine with a Jtek bar end shifter for winter abuse, touring simplicity. No shots of this yet as its not complete.

    a Large Swift I have set up as a demo bike.

    Yep, those are Stouts on the bike. They fit just fine thank you very much.

    Moar later, I guess. Time to go to work!
