    really light Ritchey Logic Prestige Super Tubing for single speed?

    I have a '96 Mongoose IBOC Pro-SX frame that is built with Ritchey Logic Prestige Super Tubing that weighs, if I recall correctly, about 3.75 pounds. I built it up in '97 with a '97 Judy SL fork, XTR components, Syncros Pro titanium seat post, Race Face Turbine LP cranks, Mavic 217 rims, and White Industries hubs and it was a 23 pound bike back then. It has since been torn down and I ride a '06 Turner Flux now.

    I'd really like to build the frame up again, but as a single speed. How much more abuse does a frame receive when built up as a single speed? I know I would lose some pedal efficiency because of the fact that this frame flexes. Will the side to side rocking destroy it, or is that what these old steel frames are designed to do?

    Thanks.
