    replaceable hangers are not terribly common on steel bikes nor have they ever been. Steel can be bent back without weakening it and is less likely to snap either

    Maybe that's why I haven't been aware of that, being I am not really a big fan of steel frames...

    I was just kind of surprised to see it. I mean it's one thing if it's a true single speed with horizontal drops, but for a bike that was originally a geared bike it only takes 1 solid complete wipeout to nail that hanger dead on with a rock during a nasty fall and do some damage.

    Very nice color scheme... love the white

    What chain tensioning system does it use, track ends? I can't quite see the rear dropouts.

    Ye, those Pro/Shimano forks are from the same factory as the WBs (and eXotic, and Saso, Fetish, Origin8...). I'm actually on the lookout for them, but they're not available in my area yet. Another cheaper alternative to the WBs, but with a reputable name behind it.

    Here's my Green Machine... I got the frameset from a friend and raided the parts bin to put this together.

    Thanks!

    The bike has horizontal dropouts and a tugnut on the drive side.

    Good to hear that about the PRO fork.

    Where'd you get the black Fox fork? 80mm? I know Fox make them but pretty sure you cant get them aftermarket? Was this off a complete bike?

    Thanks, D

    Fetish cycles Fixation

    Haven't seen one of these posted in a while, so I figured I'd throw mine up there. Fetish Cycles Fixation frame, '09 Manitou Minute fork, race face cranks, DT Swiss/Surly and Single Track/Quando wheelsets, FSA stuff, etc.

    A Pink coloured Orange, or a misnamed bike?

    Here is my newly built P7. I've had the frame for 10 months and had it built as a geared bike but my Titus Ridler SS was a little too small, and it's carbon fork a little too fragile so I stripped both and built the Pink Bike into my new SS.
    Given her one shakedown ride that was a disaster due to a flat and chain slack so I don't really know what she is like yet (as a single) Hopefully with the bigger tires, Revelation and the geometry it should be a bit of a tank and just roll over everything in its path.

    Just completed building my first singlespeed just a few minutes ago. I found a used 2005 Fetish Discipline frame, that had marked up paint but the frame was in good shape, so I had it powdercoated. Most of the parts were either bought used, free, or really good deals. Just took her out for a quick spin around the neighborhood, and kept looking to shift Should be fun. Im just worried that my Stumpjumper FSR will not get as much use if I really like SS'ing.

    Nice bikes!....Why do so many of them not have chain tensioners? I thought that was a necessity for a singlespeed rig so the chain doesn't get floppy?
    8 is great
