    My 1989 Fisher Advance



    It has mostly served commuter duty for me since my dad gave it to me, but selling my other single speed mountain bike (a 2001 bianchi grizzly that I greatly regret selling) and my wife showing interest in the sport convinced me to "modernize" it with better brakes and wider handlebars and make it a single speed to ride it when she wants to ride my Surly Ice Cream Truck.

    36/18 gearing ended up being my magic gearing so no tensioner necessary! It's an old steel frame so it's not the lightest but it'll do!

    yes lol, got me, it is a chinese filler ( I was curious about for $8) until I find the same mongoose gel seat I have the ruins of. This bike was found on scrap heap, weirdly all set up as a triathlon bike, I stripped so many bits off her, road wheels,bars etc. Threw the 20t in and looked for a chainring but alas early Altus crank is one piece with rings. Funny as I rode it for first time today and hated it, that huge Tioga stem is going, steering was a challenge. Have an idea to put some low riser bmx style bars on her, she is budget, I will do spokes myself etc - paint not too bad but will touch up.

    I just signed up since I am getting into single speed mountain biking. I have been a roadie for as long as I could remember and even did some serious racing for 4 years as a cat 4. I just snatched this single speed off Ebay 2 weeks ago. The only thing I replaced is the tires. Now, is running a pair of your regular, made in India, Continental Race King 2.2. At 30 psi, this baby would just flow through bumpy grass field and gravel horse trails. Almost like I was riding on pavement....

    These are older photos from last week. Just replaced the pedals with some VP SPD pedals yesterday. Running at 36x18. So far, the gear is just perfect for the local trails in my local city park. There are some steep but short sections but I didn't need to dismount.

    You can tell from the pic that is def a 29er wheelset since the 1x1 have copious amounts of clearance for 26+ or 650b. Also, the post directly above your post answers the question...700c with an avg width of 2".

    Nice work SSlinksnake, I like that renegade no room for fenders look. Happy preliminary salutations on the upcoming new year!
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    Here's my Redline Monobelt/Monocog, currently running regular chain rather than belt but it's a fun rig. It's partly cheating since I'm running dinglespeed at 32x22 and/or 36x18 but I don't really change it out during rides so I think it qualifies

    Got a rigid fork recently that I still need to try out as well but I do like a little suspension to take the edge off when the ground is frozen..

    I have been eyeing up this bike since I sold my Kona Honzo (steel SS 29er) and Surly Ice Cream Truck Ops (fat bike) earlier this year. Snagged the frameset from the LBS on a Small Business Saturday sale. Bough some parts here and there over a couple of months and finally got to build it up last week.

    Bullmoose bars and the segmented fork are my favorite touches.

    Tires measure out to about 2.7" on the Pacenti DL31s (26mm internal/31mm external) and set up tubeless in an instant.

    Hoping to start shredding some singletrack soon.

    Frame:
    All-City Log Lady - Large, A.C.E. tubing

    Fork/Headset:
    All City Log Lady segmented fork / Cane Creek 40 headset

    Crankset/Bottom Bracket:
    RaceFace Turbine Cinch crankset / RaceFace Cinch BSA30 bottom bracket

    Pedals:
    RaceFace Æffect platform pedals

    Drivetrain/Cog/Chainring/Chain:
    RaceFace Cinch 32t chainring / Absolute Black 20t cog / SRAM chain

    Handlebars/Stem:
    Nitto Fairweather Bullmoose handlebars

    Saddle/Seatpost:
    Thomson Elite 30.9 x 410mm seatpost / Fizik Antares VS saddle

    Brakes:
    Shimano SLX M675 hydraulic brakes / 160mm IceTech rotors

    Front Wheel/Hub/Tire:
    Shimano XT M8000 hub > Sapim Race spokes > Pacenti DL31 rim / Panaracer Fat B Nimble tire

    Rear Wheel/Hub/Tire:
    Shimano XT M8000 hub > Sapim Race spokes > Pacenti DL31 rim / Panaracer Fat B Nimble tire

    Nice! I have the same bike. Just put some gears on it, but I switch it back and forth. I bet you'll really dig that thing on the trails. That whiskey fork looks rad!

    I just picked up a new Spot Rocker 27.5+ SS to replace the Ventana El Comandante I've been riding since 2005. Spot changed the RS Reba from 100 to 120mm travel, which gives me 73.6/67.6 HA/SA. Gearing is 42-26. Since these photos, I swapped the stock bars/stem for a Spank Oozy Vibrocore and a 60 mm Race Face Turbine stem. I also added a set of Deity T Mac pedals and a Specialized Phenom saddle.

    I have five rides on it so far and it's turned out to be exactly what I wanted for the Santa Cruz area trails. Very similar handling to my Rocky Mountain Altitude but I get to stand and mash a big gear without the bike bouncing all over the place. The plus wheels don't seem noticeably heavy but I do notice much better traction in sandy sections and less slipping around on roots.

    Just finished my first SS today and I'm very happy with it. I bought this bike as my re-entry into MTB and very quickly upgraded to a more race worthy mount. Rather than have a 10 pound overweight geared bike that I would never ride, I decided to give it a purpose as an SS.

    It started life as a 31 pound Trek X-Caliber 7 with a horrid fork and 3x drivetrain. It now sits at 23 lbs and I'm happy with it, but will upgrade the wheels, crank, and other bits over the summer.

    I almost got lucky with a 32/19 nearly being a magic gear combo, but I added the DMR Tensioner to be sure (and allow for chain stretch and future cog changes).

    It started life as a 31 pound Trek X-Caliber 7 with a horrid fork and 3x drivetrain. It now sits at 23 lbs and I'm happy with it, but will upgrade the wheels, crank, and other bits over the summer.

    I almost got lucky with a 32/19 nearly being a magic gear combo, but I added the DMR Tensioner to be sure (and allow for chain stretch and future cog changes).

    What is the mount to bolt the rear cog on the cassette hub? Looks cool.

    It's 24lbs. Pretty solid considering minion ss rear and minion dhf front.

    I upgraded my rims to the new Crest and that shaved 1lbs from mine just in time for 24HOP. El Mariachi is down to 25lbs these days.

    Latest addition to my Specialized Carve SL. Manitou Marvel Pro. Really transformed the bike. The rigid fork was great but the Marvel really opened up the bike for me.

    New plus wheels for my Wozo. Running 27x3 chronicle rear and 29x3 DHF on the front, 110 fork with a 32t oval I've been sitting on for a while. 20t wolftooth cog and pc870 chain.

    With the wheels and fork I've slackened the bike out to about 66.5 from stock 69. With 425mm chain stays I can't wait for the rain to stop.

    Its a QR axle. No need for anything fancy with a rigid fork.

    The A/C is 485 with a 45mm offset.

    Thanks! I'll have to post it up. No issues so far. I think I have the tension dialed in pretty well. But, it hasn't been through a whole lot of really bumpy terrain either.


    [QUOTE=*OneSpeed*;13022660]HA! ghost ring, Sweet!

    how does that setup work for you? any issues in bumpy terrain?

    you should post that in my thread too.

    Got a used Trek Superfly SS. I rode this yesterday and while I had to walk a lot, it was definitely a lot of fun. Buttery smooth on the climbs

    Titanium single speed full rigid 29er mountain bike dippin' around Treasure Island, been riding it for about 6 years in different configurations, takeaway lesson is get a quality frameset as the foundation, the rest will take care of itself.

    Loved my superfly SS but missed going fast descending so I built this up. Has some heft in comparison but worth it

    I was lucky enough to buy this Vulture frame, fork, stem and brakes from a friend last week. Added the White Industries ENO 650B Wheelset and some parts that were laying around and BOOM! 650B Singlespeed Mega Machine!
    I am going to race it this weekend at a local MTB Time Trial. Should be interesting.

    LARRYJO,

    That's awesome!

    Some fantastic details on the frame.

    Glad it's way too big for me or I'd be super jealous.

    Here's my new-to-me Niner One 9. It's a 2009/10 scandium silver/raw frame that was painted HOK Tangelo Orange. It has a niner carbon fork, 34/18 gearing, Arch EX wheels with Stans Neo hubs, tubeless bontrager xr3 expert front tire, tubeless specialized fast trak rear tire, Truvativ stylo crank, RDO stem, RDO seat post, niner wtb seat, niner aluminum bar, crank bros candy pedals, and shimano deore brakes. Weighs in at 19.6lbs.

    I've ridden it a total of 30 miles so far and I'm loving it. My trail bike is going to get a much deserved break this season.

    Not quite done, and wearing some old Hayes brakes/rotors while waiting on warranty replacements for a SRAM Guide RS set, but I'll put it here since it just went SS after a few weeks of riding in the same gear.

    2016 Canfield Yelli Screamy
    -Reba "RCT3" 120mm
    -Arch Mk3/DT350(36T) w/XR3 Team Issue rear
    -Flow Mk3/DT350 w/XR4 Team Issue front
    -shimmed KS Lev 272 dropper
    -huge PITA SS conversion w/a Blackspire Stinger that required Dremeling it to clear the chainstays, plus a 0 offset direct mount chainring and way outboard cog to match, but it works as well as any fixed tensioning method could with an oval. When it comes time to replace the chainring, I'm going back to a Singleator, though(no slop with an oval).

    'Course I can't tell any difference pedaling it, but I sure did enjoy pulling that shifter and RD off.
    Freedom!!!

    That's got a Honzo vibe going on there.

    Very nice.

    Honzooooo

    Wife got a puppy, I got to finish my Honzo build. Goma 2.4 fits perfectly on i29s on the rear. Chronicle & Krampus fork up front make this thing absolutely perfect. 34x19 and it hauls.
