    Haha gotcha. Took it a different way at first.

    It is a frankenbike through a spare parts build, but a couple parts are new. Now that its together im liking it more and more.

    Cool-blue Rhythm

    My On-One Lurcher, finally converted from 2x10 to SingleSpeed. I did a couple of rides with the bike already. It is so crazy somehow, but I like it!

    No. You just need to pick the gears that work for you. It might take a few rides.

    2015 Specialized Crave SL

    my new bike, first full rigid and first single speed bike.

    I swapped out the stock brakes for a pair of SLX that I had. using Oury Grips and had the wheels set up tubeless. otherwise everything else is stock. This thing is a monster and super fun to ride. Can't wait to take it out tomorrow!

    21.8lbs size large.

    Thats a nice bike and very light too. My SS is 25lbs with pedals... will keep it that way. I figure ill get stronger and weight wont hopefully matter much... my build is all from my garage.. minus the frame and brakes. Cheap

    ha! yeah i'm not really a beast, my typical ride only has a 1/4 of your elevation. i'd die on my steelie if i had to climb 3400'. my aluminum ss is 25 lbs, but i rarely ride it due to the harsh ride. when i do it feels like i'm floating

    My Lurcher is ~21 lbs. My last longer SS tour with the Lurcher was this one: Mountain Bike Ride Profile | Crazy muddy tour with SingleSpeed MTB near Budapest | Times and Records | Strava
    It was ~7000 feet climb. :P
    Tomorrow I will go to a similar circle.

    Where did you get that enve fork? Cant seem to find it on their site. How do you like it so far? Was looking at the RDO fork or whiskey parts co but this might be a game changer.

    Try this link: enve.com/products/components/mtn-fork-forkmtn/

    I love it so far. I'll let you know after I ride it a few more times. The fit and finish are incredible though. The rake is adjustable. And that little fender can be removed and replaced with a couple of carbon clips instead (supplied). I'll put some miles on it and let you know more later. I was lucky that my LBS had it in stock here in Dallas, TX. Honestly, it's what me want to have this bike built.

    That link worked. I just meant it was a game changer because i love enve products and now that they are making a fork it will get thrown in the mix with the RDO and Whiskey Parts fork. Looks like a super sharp fork though. Love the adjustable rake and fender options

    Hello folks,

    Picked up my first singlespeed this week. My main motivations behind ditching the gears and suspension are less maintenance and improving my fitness. Anyway, here she is; Salsa El Mariachi SS, completely standard:

    Nothing too exciting, except that this is supposed to be my "geared" bike.

    For the last couple of years I've had an ss 29er, a fixed-gear old 26er, and this bike was 1x9. Because everyone needs a geared bike, right? And maybe some days I'd really want to ride gears, right?

    But this year I really had to admit that my legs just don't like gears anymore. My brain says "I've got gears so there's no need to try" and then I get hung up on stuff I'd easily clear on an ss. Or if I clear a section while toodling along in my lowest gear, I don't feel much of a sense of accomplishment.

    So now it's ss too. It's 38x20, which is obviously a weird gear choice. But I had been running a 38 ring upfront, and I had the 20t cog in the partsbin. I wanted something that was geared quite a bit lower than my 29er (51 gearinches vs 58 for the 29er). First ride as an ss was great.

    Made a few changes to the El Mariachi Ti SS Setup.

    Whisky Parts Co #9 fork
    Built an SS Specifc rear wheel with a Profile Racing Elite SS MTB Disc Hub
    Knard on the front.

    I think this may be just about perfect. I have a SS specific alternator drop out to throw on once the AML 400 is over with.

    Just got my first Jones, and in the true sense of the Jones Philosophy, what better way to build it up as a singlespeed with mech brakes!

    This is my 2x20 miles commuter SS. British Viking Blade/Ronin, 700c, 44x16. Cost a princely $250 new. I upgraded the brakes to Tiagra as the stock levers bent like crazy - a huge improvement for little money.

    Somehow forgot to put a new pic up. It's an awesome ride.

    Have since tossed on some black ESI chunky grips, just didn't have them for the shakedown ride and the Ergons go on quickly

    Went to my LBS today and had them order the right chainring. I'll pick it and the rest of the conversion parts up in a few days.

    The surgery is scheduled for this weekend.
