    Roox rolllercoaster, its the bottom half of a DH tensioner. works pretty damn well, similar to the new Yess but with two wheels

    I have been using this tensioner for 4 years now, the only downside is if the chain is a tad too long it can skip on the steep stuff

    Heres one of mine; the other is still undergoing construction.
    *EDIT* I FINALLY got my Surly 1x1 fork in today so it'll be going on soon along with better wheels (Mavic 317's with Deore hubs) and a new headset (Cane Creek S-3.)

    This is my work in progress.

    2008 Diamondback Response Sport.

    All stock so far except brakes. Replaced the Hayes MX4's for Avid BB7's. World of difference...

    As you can see, the third geared chainring is still on. That's because I did not have (nor did the bike shop) have bolts shallow enough to bolt the single chain ring on by itself, so I threw on my geared chainring just so the existing bolts I had could bite the threads and screw down. The third chainring is not functional, and the chainring that the chain is on is a true single speed 32T chainring.

    Currently running 32-14 gearing, but I plan to change that. Leaving it as is for now since 32-14 on my bike is the "magic ratio." I plan to mount a Rennen Rollenlager Chain Tensioner on the bike as I doubt I will be able to find a magic ratio with the bigger gears. I plan to try a couple different combinations so I'll need some slack to work with, and the Rennen to provide the tension.

    Anyways, it's a work in progress that just began. But there it is!

    This is another scavenged build... I stole the wheels from my commuter (put the old ones back on there) and built this up for some fun weekend riding. The bars are temporary, as I can't decide between my Scott AT-3s or the AT-4s that are currently mounted on the commuter. I'm also not completely sold on whether or not I'm keeping it? A tire swap is DESPEATELY needed too, those treads made for a good bit of rolling resistance on the way to work this morning! Rigid SS'ing is SO much fun!



    and here's the commuter in it's current condition... still a LOAD of fun!



    Oh, and I may as well post the last in the stable... my Motobecane Fantom UNO... TOO much fun! It's fixed, oh, and don't mind the bar angle, that was mid setup!

    Posted this over on the thread about converting road bikes but figured since this crowd digs Soulcrafts it was worth adding to this mix.

    I'll try and get a few more pics posted. The bike is dirty now, and not a bling machine by any measure, but it is truly the most fun I've ever had on a bike.

    My Vassago Jabberwocky I have had several SSs but this is my favorite. It has a real nice feel. I have the FOX G2 and really like this fork. Overall, a fun ride.

    thanks... Rusty is a handful, but he settles down after a long ride in the trails.

    the 650b wheels fit like a glove, no complaints yet.

    thanks for the flowers guys.

    It is a sweet sweet bike for sure. It isn´t that ugly and it rides very BMXy. It only is a lil on the harsh side. Neither the Kelly fork, nor th Chromag bars have a lot of give. And the 415mm chainstays are on the beefier side too. Takes gettin used to its character, but than comes the love...

    btw: I got a few pms concernig the crankset: It is an old Sachs Quarz crankset (XT-level) that is a cold forget version of the twisted boone crankset design.

    I like those misfits, but why the dip in the TT? I can't see any benefit, except added standover clearance (which really isn't a benefit). Cable routing is kind of a pain, I'd guess.

    THat is the point of the dip yea the stand over height and unless you dont have balls then I guess its not a benfit. My balls in the other hand love it when I don't slam them.

    I see. But I have not slammed into the TT in a long long time. I've wrecked plenty over the bars, sliding out, etc., but not right onto the TT.

    I don't know for sure, but it looks like the swingarm pivots around the bottom brackt. ie, the chainstay length doesn't change. But that is a guess, I do not know for sure.

    Yep, Lenz makes FS frames with the main pivot around the BB. The production 29er FS with that style is now called the Milk Money (search for it, there are some cool threads and pictures)

    That El Mariachi looks nice, I don't think I've ever seen one that color.

    Is that a custom dent in the top tube? I got one just like it from trying to move my bikes and snowboard in the same truck, what about yours?

    New guy.

    GT Peace 9r.



    It's funny, i've got some expensive bikes sitting around my house, but this is the one that i end up riding the most.
    Currently flirting with the idea of putting a short-travel fork on, to make it a little more versatile (and save my wrists)

    Whole bunch of new stuff.
    Jagwire Kevlar Enforced Lines (pink)
    Alligator Ti Rotors
    KMC gold singelspeed chain ( tried the light one but it snapped )
    Easton EC70 Bars
    3T Arx Pro stem
    Carver EBB ( rocks so much)
    Race Face Cranks
    20T. ( new jersey is not a 16 t friendly place..)
    Pink Bottle Cages
    and planet trippy pink grips ( so great)
    Small Block 8's Sealed Tubeless with 1/2 stans 1/2 slime and some confetti
    apex carbon seat post


    In the future,
    WTB pink seat
    niner 20 t cog.
    king headset.
    Manitou Elite fork or if the sid 29er rumor is true one of those.
    Love this bike, my first SS and 29er. Im glad i bought into this.

    If you have one of these do yourself a favor and buy the carver delrin ebb. It save you so much trouble and makes your ride so more enjoyable.

    I decked the bike out in pink because its a GF rig ( aka the plague) so it turns some heads and makes it different. People laugh untill i get over obstacles they cant on my pink bike :P

    Here is my, new to me, Redline Monocog. I picked it up for $125.00 which I thought was a pretty decent deal considering I know the guy I bought it from and he is very good at doing regular maintenance to his bikes. I plan to change some things down the road. Over winter I plan to paint it white and do all flat black trim to it. I'm not much of a fan of red. It currently has a Rockshox Judy XC on it which I will upgrade at some point too. This is my first SS. I had a Prophet that I sold about 16 months ago because I just didn't have time to ride. That has changed now and wanted to try out SS so here it is.

    My new ride. First singlespeed, first 29er.

    It's a COG Bicycles Über Alles. COG is the brand the owner of our local bike shop, Cog Bike Cafe. The frame is singlespeed specific, built from 100% Columbus Zona.

    The spec:
    PRO carbon fork (White Bros. copy?)
    Velocity Blunt rims, Hope Pro II hubs, DT Comp spokes.
    White Industries ENO 180mm crankset, Deore bottom bracket. 32t chainring, 18t rear cog. Izumi chain.
    LX brakes. 2.4 Ralph front, 2.25 rear.
    Ritchey WCS bar, Oury lock-ons.
    Stem, seatpost and possibly the saddle will be changed later.
    The brakelines have been cut since the pics.

    The bike weighs in at approx. 20.9 pounds. It is a very quick bike. Only one ride so far, but I'm loving it!

    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.

    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
