    new build

    Ok, I am sure I like single speed riding now. Time to build a better rig. I will be upgrding from my inbred steel frame (2012 model) and i will be ditching the exotic alloy fork. I am hoping to have a light rig that is relatively strong.

    On-one lurcher single speed frame (carbon)
    Chinese carbon fork (until on-one stock ia baack in for their forks)
    FSA pro carbon team issue crankset
    FSA team issue seat post
    Race face d2 stem
    FSA carbon riser bars
    Shimano xt hubs
    Dt swiss double butted spokes
    Alloy nipples
    Sun inferno 25 rims

    Thats all i can remember now. Just waiting on frame and fork to arrive in the mail.

    Should be a little lighter than my inbred. Think it will be a fun bike. Looks like i will be selling a inbred nd exotic alloy fork soon... maybe recoup some costs.

    Will definately post up the build. I have to wait until october until the track end swap outs are available. Going to build it up and use a tensioner until then.

    Don't be surprised if you end up missing the steel frame. My first SS was an inbred and although I have since build up a custom Ti SS I can't seem to part with that old, cheap piece of metal. Enjoy the new build

    Yeah, i chnged from steel when i raced bmx, and mid season i swapped back from aluminum. I love steel, but also like carbon. I had a carbon bmx bike in the mid 90s nd loved it.

    I can't wait to try a carbon bike. Afraid to at the moment since I'm weighing in at 272 pounds as of this morning. Down from 320. Once I hit my goal of 225 I may very well reward myself with a carbon frame to build up or a custom Ti frame. In the mean time, I just placed my order for a Gen 2 N9. Now if I could just sell this other frame I have to make up for the new one.
