    VP001's. Seen some pics of a mangled one due to the spindle not going all the way through, but got a good deal and they are holding up well. Took one to the calf when I dropped the chain, wasn't too comfortable! Since I have built the ENO wheel and chain is much better.

    Beware!! Single speed awesome in the photo's below. Just finished this re-doing of my KM an hour ago.

    The bike went from this:


    To this:




    I may switch back to front squish and put my Reba back on, but that won't be till after the spring mud/dirt road touring season that this thing should rule at.

    I'm going to take the bike for it's madin trial tomorrow. Should be a good ride.

The update that I made was that I actually used a derailluer bolt that threads right into the hanger so that a 5mm hex key will take off/loosen/or tighten the tensioner

    MSC-- I'll give you my first impression....much more comfortable than expected. I was in the saddle most of the day and barely noticed it. I'll get more time with it in the coming weeks and I'll repost a longer term review.

    It actually handles quite well and I have found myself bunny hopping speed bumps, man hole covers, drains, cracks...pretty fun. Unfortunately, it looks like I am going to have to finally dump some money into the Blue Beast as she needs a bb pretty bad. Should only cost me about $30 but still! The ride on it yesturday was horrible with popping and creaking. There doesn't appear to be any grease left in that bad boy at this point so for now, she is hung up until I get around to it.

    The other issue I have run into a this point is that there is no quick release on the brakes at this point. Instead I simply set the cables up so that I can adjust the cable slack to open up the caliper when I need to pull the wheels off. Other than that, (and the bb) things seem to be working pretty good though the move to an 18t from the 16t really did not feel that much different at all (now at 46x18)

    Nice bike...can we get a build list of all the specs?
    I bet this bike is super light weight as well. Got a weight on it?

    I take it you like roots music?
    I make maps and ride a SS El Mariachi with a rigid Fargo fork:

    I got a set of Avid XX World Cup brakes that need to go on still. I also have Zipp Vumaquad BB and an SWorks carbon crank that will go on as soon as HBC makes a spiderless chain ring for the crank. And those American Classics are pretty heavy for SS. I think I can shave another pound and a half or so once I make these upgrades.

    I'm not a huge fan of reggae, it's OK. I was going for a red, white and blue theme. I just happened to have a gold CK headset lying around.

    Man, your IF looks great! Nice build and those Specialized cranks will make a very nice addition! Where do you live/ride? Just curious how those Renegade tires are holding up? Considering getting one for the rear or maybe front/rear in the spring.

    Damnit man! I was using the old Jedi Mind trick on him!!!!

    You can save yourself the pain of feeling violated and just send it to my address. I'll PM it to you.

    Seriously though, how do you like the tires?

    Please rest assured that while we joke about the stealing of a bike, I am a firm believer in:
