    I love this forum.
    A 50$ "had the parts in the basement" bike followed by a 4K carbon masterpiece.
    And we all suffer for the purity of SS!!
    FWIW I threw gazzaloddis on my full-CF fisher, but it's got gears so you won't find it here!

    well I DID have to spend about an hour the sharpie marker "flames" off the fork with a scrub pad and purel. how much is my time worth?

    but yeah, other than that, honestly... EVERYTHING was somewhere in a parts bin, or just needed rubbing the mud off.
    even the cable and housings were just cut down from longer ones that were rusted out the last couple inches.

    wife got me the tires for our anniversary so those're actual unused parts.

    I think I'm going to throw a fox shock into a girvin I have kicking around, maguras maybe, get this thing as weirded out as I can

    Crappy cell-phone pic, I just picked it up last night. I'm using the problem solvers PF-30 eccentric bottom bracket on it. I can't wait to ride it!

    Not sure I'm feeling that chain, but I am definitely feeling those dry erase markers.

    I didn't pick the chain, I told the shop that I didn't really care and to surprise me. I dig it.

    LOL at both of you for noticing the markers. I'm a professor so I use those a TON. No love for the lab coat?

    Isn't she just FLY! Man I love the blacked out look! And it's carbon!

    Well, I couldn't take it any more and swapped my tires back out. I managed to shave about 1.2 lbs off the bike. I was going to take a picture of it but the battery on the camera is dead (now charging). But nothing new other than the tires! Bonti 29-3 2.0 on the rear and my old Nano 2.1 on the front. New weight of the Jabber is 20.9 lbs. I got it down to 20.5 by pulling my bar ends and swapping to my full carbon seat but I already know I won't ride it like that so I put the other seat and barends back on. F-it, it rides great and is a pound lighter than it was earlier today. Not bad for a steel frame! Obviously there is still room to shed some weight (wheels and fork for the bigger wt savings, then stem, bar, bb, even different tires...) but we all know that WW trek is a slippery road and never ends. For now, I just wanna ride!

    The chain looks like the Shadow Conspiracy 1/2 link BMX chain. It is heavy as all get out! I had one on my Hoffman. I did not have the Hoffman together long enough to get good wear out of the chain but I heard from a bunch of folks that it stretches out quite a bit.

    I use a Shadow Conspiracy on my SS MTB...and I love it.

    I have used many regular single-speed chains, and they all have broken on me. The Shadow Conspiracy chain is the only one that holds up. I have not had any stretching issues. I can't see how you could, those chains are far harder than other bike chains...I have broken chain tools on them more than once.

    Give em' a try! I won't use anything else on a SS...MTB or commuter.

    It's nice to post to this after spending so much time looking at all your bikes. I now have this the way I want - 18.25 # as photographed.

    Finished rebuilding my Paragon frame. Pretty much all the stock Paragon bits except the brakes, drivetrain (duh), and seatpost. XL frame with pedals came to 23.4lbs...not bad considering there are no weight weenie parts on this. Unfortunately my Monocog (aka Tank Bike) is now jealous of his sleeker and slightly fitter roommate.

    Say hello to the newest convert. I'm still running my stock chainrings because I am planning on getting a new single speed crankset in about a month. Also, I found out during the install that my 9 speed chain would not work with the new cog so I had to dig up this old crappy chain temporarily. Other than that, it runs like a dream! I love it!
