    sometimes i'm thinking of removing all those not used braze-ons and rear canti bosses from my juice... oh, well, maybe one day.

    congrats on your new toy

    those are the stock BB5s in mountain bike mode it has haye hfx 9s..I have since actually paid (those were given to me by my favorite shop) and got some cane creek scr-5 levers which are far more comfortable and 46cm bars and a bit longer stem. I will pick up the new wheels tomorrow re-laced to Hone hubs w/Hone der and will run 1x9 for the winter then in the spring back to MTB mode and SS..this is the reason I bought this bike so I could have 2 bikes in one less space less cost and less drama and a happier wife..

    so the mt bb7 will work with road levers? i have some scr-5s and some soma levers from my old cross check build... running V on back but can swap to canti, bb7 disc up front. and i have a salsa bell lap to swap to... hmm.

    I personally wouldn't go through all that drama. I dont think mechanical disc brakes work and better than good V's and only marginally better tha good canti's..I prefer the clean look of disc and honestly probally wouldn't buy a frame that was not disc or disc w/studs.. but if my frame had them I also wouldn't go out of my way to put disc on especially a split system..just alot of work with little benefit in my opinion.

    its the soma pictured a few posts back. running flip flop fixed / ss right now, so v-brake on the back until i chew through the rim - and then i'll decide on ss or fg for it and build up a disc wheel.

    so, i can easily swap bars without changing things. i can just swap out my v for a canti, runn it all the time, as i'm running rim back there anyway. but front is disc...

    first ride on the bike above. night ride on my training trail. I had to stop a couple of times after steep climbs. The hardest climb, i came off with about 15 yards to go. this is gonna make me stronger. i love it, and I am all in on the single speed.

    Looks like one of 'dem fancy Jhooks from Home Depot-- er, I mean, special-order bicycle-specific seat-hanging hooks. I sell to you for just $49.95.

    Rebuilt the old Monocog this week...

    Had it for years,bought it used for a C-note (frame,fork,wheelset,extra hubs,SP stem/bars). Over that time,it's been posted up in either this thread or the other one like it as a rigid mtn bike,commuter,Fox Fork'd mtn bike,roadie,Marzocchi fork'd mtn bike,and now a roadie/errand runner bike.

    From this morning's sub-freezing ride to run a few errands (twas 31 degrees F...I had enough sense to throw my flannel jacket on over my t-shirt,but not enough to change outta me "house shorts",AKA boxxers). 32x18 (till I find my 16t that I put somewhere),Nashbar front rack,Wallymart bar bag (Bell-I liked the vintage leather look,and it was only 20 bucks ),and scrawney tires.

    Finally finished the SS. Recap the build: Soul Cycles Dillinger, pearl green, 20" frame, it was a discounted blem (frame was just under 5 lbs. w/EBB). White Brothers Fluid 110 (have had this fork on two other bikes). Mavic C-29 wheels (also had them for a while), last on the RIP. Formula K-18's, last on the RIP. Stylo cranks, from RIP. Ergon GX1 grips (New, I like these a lot). KMC green chain. Surly spacer kit and cog (20T). Thomson stem and seatpost (new). Salsa QR's, and seatpost QR. Chris King headset (used). WTB Pure Team (old). Maxxis Aspen tires (new, just recently released) I think these are going to be a GREAT dry conditions tire. Platforms are only for the 'hood.

    My Felt SS

    Not new, but this is my first post. It's pretty much stock from the factory except for the hubs.
    Bike: Felt 2007 single speed 29er
    Fork: Reba Rockshox SL
    Hubs: The Hive Chub Hub SS
    Crank: TruActive something
    Current Ratio: 32-17

    It looks pretty good for having about 1,500 hard trail miles on it. More pics here:

    ... and if we just ... Redline Monocog 29er SS

    Here's my build. Finally got to borrow a camera from someone .
    Built it up from frame up a few months ago. Running 32x18 gearing, perfect for my local trail-riding. Hope you guys like it as much as I do.

    Rainier Conversion

    I have had this bike setup many times as a XC racer, as well as a bike to pull the rugrat with, but now I think it is in my favorite arrangement. I just slapped on the silver Thomson stem and spacers and Juicy 7's. It'll be fun to ride a single speed on some trails around here to see if I'm man enough to handle the long climbs.

    I'm running 32x15 for commuting, thinking about a 17 tooth for trails and a 13 or 11 tooth for short track since my full squish XC bike accelerates a bit slower on our tight short track courses. Any thoughts?

    Ferrous

    My new to me Fisher Ferrouse, I think they made it out of cast iron instead of cromo because the small frame weighs 5lb 5 oz, overall weight is a dissapointing 23 3/4 lbs but I'll trim it down a bit at a time.

    close up on the newly installed tensioner
    The "New" Post Your Singlespeed!-1123091435a.jpg
    my horrible chain line. due to the tensioner and spacers not being perfectly compatable. but it still rides smooth.
    The "New" Post Your Singlespeed!-1123091512.jpg
    a full shot of the bike. its a dh bike!
    The "New" Post Your Singlespeed!-1123091512a.jpg
    another angle.
    The "New" Post Your Singlespeed!-1123091435.jpg
    the tensioner has AMAZING tension. its tight as it can be. i could bearly pull the arm when it was of...ill never drop a chain. (i hope. haha)

    the tensioner is the shimano alfine. the spacer kit is the gusset single speed kit. i did this all for $57 with 2 day air from jensonUSA. now i just need a dry day to make sure its good.

    im running a 36-16 ratio. i dont know if thats a harder ratio, but it works good on decent hills (when im in more of an all mountain feel) but doesnt spin out at good speed.

    the bike came in at 41lbs before the conversion on my bathroom scale. based on what other people say i think im around 39lbs. not too shabby for dh bike.

    Sette Reken frame 16"
    Pretty much stock stuff from a 07 Rockhopper.

    I just added:
    Shimano m525 pedals
    Salsa 32t SS ring with bguard
    Avid SD7 brake levers
    Shimano SIS rear derailleur modified as a tensioner
    PC-1 SS chain

    next is: SS cog w/ a "real" tensioner, crank arms and maybe rigid fork.

    that fisher and schwinn-holy small frame!

    heres what i did some work on the other day.
    before:
    <a href="http://s72.photobucket.com/albums/i192/brianjamesitzaina/one%20way%20or%20another/?action=view&current=1-2.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i192/brianjamesitzaina/one%20way%20or%20another/1-2.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>
    after:
    <a href="http://s72.photobucket.com/albums/i192/brianjamesitzaina/?action=view&current=IMG_2062.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i192/brianjamesitzaina/IMG_2062.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

    next thing towards the build is i am gettin my xtr M952 crank arms polished and have a 32t spiderless chainwheel from home brewed components in the works as of today(also polished)
    heres the design i went with.
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v2...x/DSCN0641.jpg
    after that ill be purchasing a WI Eno freewheel whenever i decide what ratio im going with.
    once i get all this on ill definatly be hittin the dirt more often. i planned a cruise around the lake today but just went around town and ended up going to the skatepark.
