    Many of these are frames designed for singlespeed. They have some way to move either the rear cog or the front chainring relative to each other so that you can set the chain to be tight. For example, look at the orange bike a couple posts up and notice that the rear axle is mounted within a slot dropout that allows the wheel and cog to be moved forwards or backwards and then tightened in place

    Most have horizontal or track style drop outs which allow the adjustment. Some have 'sliders' which are basically the same idea, using hardware to adjust.

    Sometimes people can get lucky with a 'magic gear' ring/cog combo. This doesn't work well in the long run because of chain stretch.

    I'm running an eccentric hub which gives about 2 links of adjust. I like this route because I can then use the hub/wheel on any bike I want. The negative impact of the eccentric hub is the brake needs to be adjusted to the position of the rim (or disc) if there is a change in the tension/gearing.

    My other bike has an eccentric bottom bracket, which I think is the best since it doesn't change the position of the wheel, negating the need to reposition the brake.

    Thank you so much for posting!

    Nice ride indeed. I also love white bikes. You've done a great job with colour selection.

    Yep, fixed gear - it's my daily work commuter and the occasional weekend racer. I ordered the anodized red hubs directly from Phil Wood. They were not cheap, but definitely worth it.

    UglyBug Bike....But??????????

    Soon to be off on hols to France. Usually take a Singlespeed with us, was going to be the Redline, but got a bit carried away with the upgrades, so not really suitable now for the holiday hack.

    So rummaged in the loft of the garage and built this.



    Looked pretty bad to start with, but after a cleanup I think it looks OK.

    Only bit I had to buy was the seatpost clamp, but found the original later.

    Not sure what the frame is, bought it from LBS years ago, no disk tabs. used a AtoZ adapter first but that made it pretty much impossible to remove the back wheel without a big lever, so now runs a home made adaptor.

    Monocog fork works well with the frame and the Charge Spoon saddle always looks cool.

    Yes I know I have put the tyres on the wrong way round! I love the Ignitors, use them a lot, and should be able to put them on the right way! Oh well.

    Simply because my new bar did not come with any plugs and I did not have any in my quickly dwindling parts box, that would fit. When I get my new bar ends, I will get some bar plugs. Thanks for noticing.

    Did you get some of the Rasta kit anodized or did you buy them like that? Should look pretty cool when its done.

    I'm not really sure what this, but I put it together with some old parts and about $70 worth of new parts and its a blast to ride around the city here in Boston.

    Just finished the cheapo conversion yesterday.






    33t Tree Bikes sprocket, Primo Powerbite cranks, Primo Euro BB, 16t cog, DIY pvc spacers painted black =]

    To get the chain length just right I added a (white?) half link right behind the master link. Master links are the best!

    Your master link is installed wrong. The clip should face the other direction.
    But looks like a nice ride.

    Original GIANT XTC

    It was originally this:



    a Giant XTC. The bars are Dimension Arc bars, which were really cheap but they look all right. Thanks for your comments.

    you are also less likely to bump the caliper out of alignment, muck up the rotor with your dirty sweaty hands, or burn yourself on a disc rotor

    Good point

    It's become habit to put them on the left after riding a geared bike for quite some time.

    It ROCKS! Canadian Love!
    It is a blend of old and new.
    I built it using extra parts that were laying around and this is what I got.
    2001 Dekerf Solitaire Frame
    Paul Moto Lite Brakes and Critical racing Levers
    CK Headset
    Thompson Stem and Bar
    Moots Riser
    99 Zok Superfly
    Mid 90's Hugi Hubs on Mavic 217's-clack,clack,clack
    RF Turbines.
    I can't wait to get the Dekerf Tuning fork and Bulid it using my Rasta Kit.

    Sweet frame and brakes, the chainstay/monostay junction is awesome.

    Also, it was my understanding that the granny chainring bolts are structural on those old race face turbines, so if you ride without them it can break the arms on your spider... Something to look into...

    I know, I know, Outcast 29's are like a$$holes, but I still like it. Only got this about 2 weeks ago but with the tiny morsel of time I've had I can say it handles great.

    I have set up jump/urban w/ rear brake only and I swapped out the crankset for an Eastern Stealth crank and BB w/ a Profile Imperial 28t and a AC 15t freewheel.

    so i had a custom SS in 1994...

    I haven't ridden this in a long while and pulled it out from storage this weekend, gave the chain a cleaning and went for a ride... boy i suck at riding a SS now...

    SyCip from '94. Started life with an Amp fork and Magura hydraulic brakes, did some component updating probably 6 or 7 years ago. Anyway hope you enjoy the pics.

    They are NOS MG-1's and they grippy as f*ck, light too. I had been saving them for a bike just like this.

    Yes. Codes. Really. I am a 260-pound clyde. I like having enough brake to stop me quickly. I tried BB7's and they just did not feel like enough brake for me. I would like to try some Hopes or Maguras, but can't afford them. I had the Codes on a previous bike and initially thought they would be way too much brake for this bike. After talking to the guys at the shop, I decided to try it out and would not change a thing. I love these brakes. Glad you got a kick out of it though.

    My 2005 Jamis Exile

    This is my Jamis Exile. The Mani-poo's bushings are shot so I am going to replace with an 80mm rigid fork. The gearing is 32-16 and haven't weighed it yet.

    Nice b&w shots there...
    Better to have and not need it, than to need it and not have it.
