    I hope I'm not the only person upset that Zions went by the wayside.

    Converted over to ss yesterday

    I got this GT from a friend who is moving away. I should have taken a before picture of the bike. Anyway I converted it over yesterday and rode it to work today, it rides great. I almost have the magic gear setup. I am running a 32/18 combo but I think I will go to a 34/18, I think that will get me the right chain tension and I can get rid of the tensioner.

    Latter

    Honestly, I would have had no clue had I not read 2 other threads. One that you started showing off the bike, as you should since that thing is beautiful. Another one that someone else started asking about the frames/dropouts and you responded to. Nice looking bikes. I just don't have that kind of coin to drop on a frame alone. Wish I did. For now I will stick with building a Vassago Jabberwocky. Look for pictures in the near future because it is coming together pretty quick.

    Redline Monocog 29er

    Here's my Redline Monocog 29er. I've only had it for a couple of weeks, it was an ebay find. I just installed the disk brakes this weekend. Total invested, around $350. Rides great, I love it.

    Recently built up a new trail bike, so my old 97 Hoo Koo E Koo got turned into a single speed. I realize the pic is of the wrong side, but I threw on a cheap-o Alivio crankset (42x16) and a Surly Singleator.


    I took her out for her inaugural ride today, end up doing 20+ miles of bike paths. Never had a reason to complain. If anyone is browsing this thread thinking about building a SS, I say do it!

    My GT Peace 9er multi lasted about 1 week before I converted it. With a 32x16 I ended up with a perfect chain length. The tensioner is sitting on a box. Weight is about 27.

    Budget build. Haven't done the total yet but should be under 350 or so.
    rides really sweet
    I am suppose to get a rigid fork in a couple weeks. Right now the fork came off of a trek 820. feels like 5 pounds

    M 1fg

    I haven't been on it much lately due to some leg fatigue but it's built to 21 lbs. If I get to riding the ss more I might replace the old dented 1fg but until then it works for me.

    My new Surly 1x1. The only thing left is to build a matching rear wheel, (Sun Ryhno Lite XL on a DMR Singlespeed Hub).







    Specs:

    Surly 1x1 20"
    DMR Hub on Sun Rhyno Lite XL (rear wheel coming soon)
    Hope Headset, Stem and Spacers
    Easton EA30 Bar and Seatpost
    Avid FR-5/Single-Digit Brakes
    Shimano Octalink Cranks
    Specialized Saddle and Tyres 26x2.2

    Feels like a tractor... in a good way!

    What kind of frame is that?
    Looks like you could take a few more links out of the chain and mess with the gear sizes to get the magic gear combo and get rid of the tensioner.

    Nice Ride!

    Thanks Ken, it's a Surly 1x1. They're track ends (horizontal 'dropouts') so I don't really need to look for a 'magic gear'. Got the chain tight enough that it won't fall out, but not so tight that I'll feel the inevitable tight spots in a singlespeed drivetrain. Hopefully I'll get some extra life out the chain too if I don't tighten it right up.

    Beautiful. I love the blue with the raw titanium.


    This is mine:


    It's a '99 Homegrown frame (not Yeti) tensioned with an Eno. It's one of the few Homegrown frames which came with a 80mm fork. It alternates between 32x16 and 32x18 depending on where I'm going and when in the season it is. I run a SRAM PC-58 chain with two power links in it, and I have two sections of chain I'll swap in depending on if I'm running the 16t or 18t freewheel.

    Here's my new ss. Chaka Pele steel frame for Rohloff, that's why there's sliding dropouts. I've been riding ss for around 6 years, mainly between home and work about 3000 km per year. Today I rode my first trail ride in two years (had a bit of lack of motivation) and boy was it fun!

    Saddle: Very Very cheap take-off velo. But very comfy
    Bars: not sure, but has a cool little badger on them, so I kept them. Had Laying around
    Cranks/Chainring: Big Cheese, 38T
    Tires: Kenda Krusher 2.1s,
    Seatpost: Cheapo action bikes micro adjust.

    Gonna pick up some better pedals and maybe put my brooks on it. the velo is comfy, but my brooks B17N is just better. Also have some planet bike hardcore fenders for when its rainy. This will see mostly railtrails, and the C&O, but will get some fireroad and singletrack as well. Gonna get a TomiCog as well for when I'm feeling the fix. Sorry for the crappy pics, my phone sucks.

    Thanks man.

    There is just something about this bike that calls to me. I have 10 great bikes in my stable but this is the one I ride most of the time.

    Mine's not as nice as some, but it rides well. I've just finished converting it today.

















    It's 26.5lb, but I'm only 143lb, so it's still not much weight overall to push up a hill.

    Gearing is 2:1 (32:16) which I hope to change to 2.13:1 (32:15) which might just negate the need for a tensioner. Tyres are Maxxis Ardents @ 2.25 x 26.

    hey nuck-chorris, it's an OS blackbuck, limited numbers, cheap, and designed by buddy from WTB.


    arcdesign: seeing you've got a white industries freewheel screwed onto the spinergy there, is there a surly fixxer hiding underneath or something more clever?
    (reason I ask is because I had tons of fun converting my spinergy spox wheels to ss and when i found out the models I had used shimano freehub bodies the surly fixxer became an option, just wanted to see how you'd done it)

    That's it. Nothing clever at all.

    1 part Spinergy death wheel
    +
    1 part Surly Fixxer
    =
    Carbon Fixietard Wheel

    add Eno freewheel
    =
    Cool Carbon SS Wheel

    I actually got the idea from a Japanese fixie site I stumbled across (see attachment).

    Go for it.

    Bianchi RITA 29er. Great action on this bike. Need stiffer wheels and it'll be even faster.

    Quiring Steel 29er

    I just put it together and will probably be swapping a few parts. I am really happy with the way it turned out.

    Is this a custom bike built for you? You've got a bunch of spacers, a huge stem and then a riser bar, I'm just curious if that's how you planned it, or if the custom geo was that far off...

    Yes it is custom. I am thinking about going with a flat bar or taking out the big spacer and putting a smaller one in. But this is how I wanted the bike, it is second custom with this geometry. I am just a freak with long arms and torso so it fits good. I am finally comfortable on the bike.

    new to me (both the bike and single speeding)

    KHS Solo One SE
    I use it mostly for commutinng. I can't seem to get the rear sliders to stay put. I think I got the cog side set (after the chain came off and had the pedals rake my leg), but the brake side keeps moving. Looking forward to the simplicity part of minimal maintenance once I get it properly set up.

    Sand the paint off the contact points between the frame and the sliders. This is the number one cause of sliding dropouts not staying put that I read about on the forums. Good luck with that.

    First post on the boards... This is my SS converted 99' Trek 7000. I bought it new back then and recently went through a few different phases with it. I still plan on a new saddle, wheels, and disc conversion...

    Haven't had a chance to borrow someone's crank arm extractor yet, so this is how I'm riding mine. Got some grippy street tires on it right now.
