    I feel bad for the folks I start rides out with on it, I finish the trail waaaayyyy before them.

    I've had mine a week and already have around 80 miles on it; rigid fork and all.

    Cool build. I have a similar bike. Do you have any close up pics of the drive side. Looks great

    Absolutley I wasn't sure how i would like the rigid fork but I'm loving it. This bike's a lot of firsts for me...first single speed, first 29er, first rigid. THis bike exceeds all my expecations. The full suspension stumpjumper might get jealous

    I'm in the same boat. First ss, 29er and rigid bike. I just picked up a Kona Unit and am loving it. Took it out to the womble and learned that Dallas MTBing has some splanin to do.


    The only upgrades I can think of are some foam grips and a 2.4 front tire for some extra cushion on the hands and shoulders. Already went guerrilla gorilla tape tubeless.

    Thanks. Loving this ride- I've had a few different ss's, but this is my favorite by a long shot. No super close ups, but...

    And I think if you scroll back a page or two, there's another shot of it...

    Got bored with the SS, converted it to a fixed gear. Suspension fork because I was sent the wrong brake adapter, should've been the adapter for the rigid. Good 10mile ride with this fixie today.

    Cool bike
    Reminds me of my bike that I converted to SS couple of months ago, and ended up selling it to my friend.

    I jumped on the Titus Fireline swoops downtube prototype by Van Nicholas from On-One.

    Other parts include Pro carbon fork, On-One Midge bar, Avid BB7 + CC Drop-V, Fixie Inc. hubs, Notubes Crest 29er hoops, Nobby Nics at 2.35 wide run tubeless and a few Ritchey parts here and there. I have a carbon seatpost but I want to change the clamp to a wider one before making the switch. Also I feel that the fork is a bit short at 465 mm a-c (80 mm equiv.), so I ordered a Soul Cycles steel fork with 485 mm a-c, so the geometry will be like the frame was designed.

    Great bike. But, what's with the photoshopped rear end in this picture? You're busted. Or are my eyes messed up?

    My SS TransAM

    She's no XC speed demon, but absolutely the most fun bike I have ever owned/ridden.

    Field Unit & Asphalt Inbred

    Hi all,

    First, many thanks for all your posts on the mtbr singlespeed forum that I have been avidly reading for a year now. These motivated me to pull the trigger for a 29er SS investment... This was the Kona Unit 2012 below, that I have upgraded a bit (see details if interested).

    Later on, fed up to keep all the Unit stock remaining parts and obsessed by singlespeeds, I decided to build a fixed gear commuter with a brand new On One Inbred 29er frame (photo and specs below).

    Both bikes are just great! That was really fun and quite self-satisfying for me to build a bike from scratch (before that, I used to go to my LBS to fix a simple flat tyre… since then I have also “upgraded” myself my FS GT Sensor as a 1x9, much better than 3x9, now a kind of singlespeed for grannies?). Anyway, thanks everyone for all the super valuable information on this forum, singlespeed rules!

    Kona Unit 2012 - all stock except:
    - DT Swiss M1800 wheels;
    - DT Swiss XMM 100 Single Shot fork;
    - Shimano Deore M596 Brakes;
    - Chris King cog 18t;
    - Drop seatpost Kind Shock KSP 860;
    - Wellgo MG1 Magnesium Flat platform pedals;
    - Oury/Odi grips.

    Built up fixie commuter:
    - On One Inbred 29er Slot Dropout frame + 29.8 On One seatclamp;
    - On One Mary bar;
    - Trutativ Hussefelt stem;
    - FSA Pig headset;
    - Schwalbe Fat Frank tyres 50mm;
    - Kona Project 2 rigid fork (Unit);
    - Front brake Avid BB7 (Unit);
    - WTB Speed disk AM wheels (Unit);
    - Kona seatpost (Unit);
    - Kona pedals (Unit);
    - VeloSolo Restraps (Made in Yorkshire, UK, as On One…);
    - Ritchey saddle (used to have a Brooks B17 Narrow but was too lazy to lock/secure it all the time);
    - Deore M590 Crankset 175mm + Shimano external BB;
    - Stronglight chainring 40t;
    - Fixed cog 15t 3/32 VeloSolo (in place of the rear brake rotor);
    - Free wheel cog 15t 3/32 On One Groove Armada (flip flop wheel);
    - KMC chain 8 speeds;
    - Oury grips;
    - Surly Tuggnut (excellent!).

    first day out on the trail with the new-to-me budget build #2. need to settle on a bar, pick up a new wheelset, figure out a better tensioner and maybe swap out the brakes. rides awesome after breaking it in a little.
