    My 1989 Fisher Advance



    It has mostly served commuter duty for me since my dad gave it to me, but selling my other single speed mountain bike (a 2001 bianchi grizzly that I greatly regret selling) and my wife showing interest in the sport convinced me to "modernize" it with better brakes and wider handlebars and make it a single speed to ride it when she wants to ride my Surly Ice Cream Truck.

    36/18 gearing ended up being my magic gearing so no tensioner necessary! It's an old steel frame so it's not the lightest but it'll do!

    Ha, I love seeing *that* seat on that bike. One of a kind!

    yes lol, got me, it is a chinese filler ( I was curious about for $8) until I find the same mongoose gel seat I have the ruins of. This bike was found on scrap heap, weirdly all set up as a triathlon bike, I stripped so many bits off her, road wheels,bars etc. Threw the 20t in and looked for a chainring but alas early Altus crank is one piece with rings. Funny as I rode it for first time today and hated it, that huge Tioga stem is going, steering was a challenge. Have an idea to put some low riser bmx style bars on her, she is budget, I will do spokes myself etc - paint not too bad but will touch up.

    I just signed up since I am getting into single speed mountain biking. I have been a roadie for as long as I could remember and even did some serious racing for 4 years as a cat 4. I just snatched this single speed off Ebay 2 weeks ago. The only thing I replaced is the tires. Now, is running a pair of your regular, made in India, Continental Race King 2.2. At 30 psi, this baby would just flow through bumpy grass field and gravel horse trails. Almost like I was riding on pavement....

    These are older photos from last week. Just replaced the pedals with some VP SPD pedals yesterday. Running at 36x18. So far, the gear is just perfect for the local trails in my local city park. There are some steep but short sections but I didn't need to dismount.

    You can tell from the pic that is def a 29er wheelset since the 1x1 have copious amounts of clearance for 26+ or 650b. Also, the post directly above your post answers the question...700c with an avg width of 2".

    Nice work SSlinksnake, I like that renegade no room for fenders look. Happy preliminary salutations on the upcoming new year!

    On the last ride of 2017 and before it became muddy I took this photo of my bike. Old school. Great ride.

    Here's my Redline Monobelt/Monocog, currently running regular chain rather than belt but it's a fun rig. It's partly cheating since I'm running dinglespeed at 32x22 and/or 36x18 but I don't really change it out during rides so I think it qualifies :)

    Got a rigid fork recently that I still need to try out as well but I do like a little suspension to take the edge off when the ground is frozen..

    I have been eyeing up this bike since I sold my Kona Honzo (steel SS 29er) and Surly Ice Cream Truck Ops (fat bike) earlier this year. Snagged the frameset from the LBS on a Small Business Saturday sale. Bough some parts here and there over a couple of months and finally got to build it up last week.

    Bullmoose bars and the segmented fork are my favorite touches.

    Tires measure out to about 2.7" on the Pacenti DL31s (26mm internal/31mm external) and set up tubeless in an instant.

    Hoping to start shredding some singletrack soon.

    Frame:
    All-City Log Lady - Large, A.C.E. tubing

    Fork/Headset:
    All City Log Lady segmented fork / Cane Creek 40 headset

    Crankset/Bottom Bracket:
    RaceFace Turbine Cinch crankset / RaceFace Cinch BSA30 bottom bracket

    Pedals:
    RaceFace Æffect platform pedals

    Drivetrain/Cog/Chainring/Chain:
    RaceFace Cinch 32t chainring / Absolute Black 20t cog / SRAM chain

    Handlebars/Stem:
    Nitto Fairweather Bullmoose handlebars

    Saddle/Seatpost:
    Thomson Elite 30.9 x 410mm seatpost / Fizik Antares VS saddle

    Brakes:
    Shimano SLX M675 hydraulic brakes / 160mm IceTech rotors

    Front Wheel/Hub/Tire:
    Shimano XT M8000 hub > Sapim Race spokes > Pacenti DL31 rim / Panaracer Fat B Nimble tire

    Rear Wheel/Hub/Tire:
    Shimano XT M8000 hub > Sapim Race spokes > Pacenti DL31 rim / Panaracer Fat B Nimble tire

    Nice looking bike! Bent seat tube, low top tube, very sensible. What is the CSL?

    New here, just picked up my first singlespeed since my BMX days. 2015 Salsa El Mariachi with a Whisky no. 9 fork. No trail rides yet, but it's fun around town.

    Nice! I have the same bike. Just put some gears on it, but I switch it back and forth. I bet you'll really dig that thing on the trails. That whiskey fork looks rad!

    I just picked up a new Spot Rocker 27.5+ SS to replace the Ventana El Comandante I've been riding since 2005. Spot changed the RS Reba from 100 to 120mm travel, which gives me 73.6/67.6 HA/SA. Gearing is 42-26. Since these photos, I swapped the stock bars/stem for a Spank Oozy Vibrocore and a 60 mm Race Face Turbine stem. I also added a set of Deity T Mac pedals and a Specialized Phenom saddle.

    I have five rides on it so far and it's turned out to be exactly what I wanted for the Santa Cruz area trails. Very similar handling to my Rocky Mountain Altitude but I get to stand and mash a big gear without the bike bouncing all over the place. The plus wheels don't seem noticeably heavy but I do notice much better traction in sandy sections and less slipping around on roots.

    The snow melted, so I put on the 29+ wheels and some Jones bars for bikepacking.
