    Most definitely BMX- I know the original owner; thankfully, not a hammerdog, back then or now. I also raced one of these at Whiskeytown(83):

    I would've brazed canti mounts back in the day, but not now- this will be a semi-resto, nothing irreversable.

    should have put them in order but the copper Mary was my first SS. i later broke that frame and Haro sent the black and pink frame as a replacement. Got a sweet deal on the Misfit but didn't like the sliders at all so went all in on the Selma, fork and BB/cranks.

    You guys should put strict warnings out for fools like me considering a SS, especially a full rigid.

    The first ride was good, but the second ride involved much more climbing. I did not know muscle burn like that existed and by the time i got back to the truck after 12k I actually felt dizzy. I lied down in the box of my truck 5 minutes reflecting on the torturous ass kicking this Unit had just given me.

    Those of you who ride converted SS and have suspension forks, do you ride locked out or not?

    My Pro Cruiser has an IRD fork that is purportedly designed to flex fore/aft at the crow, giving a simple suspension; it is in fact very forgiving. When THAT one is my main rider, I do not lock out as I can't. My other candidate for *main* is an older Scalpel, which I haven't quite got all the bugs out... I can see using the lockout on occasion, but IIRC these bikes rode very nicely even w/the shocks fully active, pounding hard up a steep climb. I'll get back to you on that one.

    Here's 2 of the 3, the third is a 29-er.

    First is my daughter's Specialized Rockhopper tranformed into a SS. Thanks Whit at Meryweather Cycles for the Discos. They work great. 42x18 tensionerless gearing. I just need to source a trusty shimano V-brakes for the rear.

    Second is my Salsa Juan Solo - this SS began as a weight weenie project, but the decided to just replace parts that was low maintenance.

    Lock out no problem

    Cormac. I built a rigid 29'er for long races. I had mixed results: on the one hand I loved the climbing power of my rigid singlespeed along with the lightness of the carbon fork. That said, I got brutalized trying to descend technical terrain on certain courses, especially 5 or more hours into an event. Long story short, I grabbed a Fox suspension fork with lockout. I climb locked, and unlock for most everything else...it was the ticket for 50 - 100 mile races in technical terrain last year. Suspension fork without a lock-out would bum me out.

    Crazy miles!
    A remote lockout would be nice! Maybe I'll go that route when I finally get around to an official build.

    you have an air fork on your SL2? I know on my SL it's a spring so I don't know how well it would climb unlocked under SS conditions. I'll have to try tomorrow.

    A chain of halflinks is not really a good idea. Half links are known to stretch like crazy. If you are a 150 lb guy that is a spinner, it might work, but if you are like most of us, you will be replacing that chain soon if you ride much.

    IF you ride SS you're gonna have to deal with chain strech at some point. Horizontal Dropouts ftw

    Just use tensioner and don't mind about adjusting your rear axle for chain tension.

    Never had the best luck with tensioners. It's the only way on my other SS to make it SS. But I have to run a chain keeper, keep having to replace springs/rebuild the tensioner, it makes more noise, I have had it ripped off once, lol.

    Just a bit simpler with horizontal dropouts, or an EBB if I ever have a bike that has that. I've heard thats actually the ticket for tensioning stuff

    Thanks, I noticed that shortly after taking the pics. Was in a hurry to get it installed I guess. That's ok about the stretch, I've got a tensioner. I couldn't find any reviews out there so I just have to find out for myself.

    bmx riders have been riding and learning to hate half-link chains for a few years. I put one on my bmx bike and it stretched to the point that it would not fit on my cogs after a few weeks.

    Oh well live and learn I suppose. I'll get my 25 bucks out of it and then I'll get a better one. I'm not worried about it. Didn't know stretch was that big of an issue with half link. Just trying to find a way to lose the tensioner. I don't have the money for another bike atm so horizontal dropout are not an option. Now that I have fallen for single speed I will buy a single speed specific frame next time. As for now though, this is how I roll.

    It stretches because there is a bend in each link and the bends start to straighten. I have seen a clyde stretch one noticeably on one ride. Also, instead of a new frame, someone makes an eccentric hub for the rear wheel (I am sure others on this forum will remember what it is called). You could just buy a new rear wheel with that hub or rebuild your current wheel with one of those hubs.

    Makes since, I'll have to check out that eccentric hub although I'm ok with a normal chain and tensioner too. I'm at 155lbs so hopefully I can get a little more life out of my chain. Although I like to think I can lay down some pretty mean torque...

    I was just looking at that online. It's the one that comes up on all the searches. $140 though... I'll stick with a $10 tensioner for now.

    And the disc brake version is around $155, but still less than a frame.
