    My first single speed build. (Singular Swift)

    My first single speed build. Decided to take some pics before it gets dirty.
    I love the simplicity of it. Still trying to get used to the rigid fork.

    Did you coat your ebb insert with anti-seize or grease? Mine was a little creaky before I did. I really liked the swift, it's a nice riding bike. Enjoy.

    Beautiful bike!

    Keep at the rigid, go tubeless if you aren't already...

    What gear are you running?

    I read a lot of issues regarding creaking ebbs , so yes I did coat the ebb with lots of grease.

    It's already set up tubeless and I'm running 22 psi. I guess it'll take some time to get used to rigid. I'm currently running 32/22, lots of steep hills.

    Great build! I run 32x21 in the hills and sometimes wish for 32x22.

    I just could not handle the rigid fork since I'm still recovering from a shoulder separation.
    So I put a Fox fork on it. The only downside is that it added about 1 lb to the bike. But my shoulder likes it.

    I like that the stanchions match the rims! Looks like fun.

    nothing wrong with listening to your body tell you stuff. Still a beautiful bike!

    How is the ride?

    I actually got them from Hammerheadbikes.com - Your 29er Source but like you said project 321 has them also.
