    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!!!
    Good to have you back!

    2017 Update

    The "New" Post Your Singlespeed!-santa-cruz-highball-29-28961_6.jpg

    My Highball for 2017. Swapped to a black chainring purely for aesthetics lol, and an Ergon seat, still have some Ergon grips to throw on.

    Found a ss wheelset, Arch EX rims built on some ss Hope hubs, but I'm still unsure if I should grab it. The front hub being a 15mm would push me to upgrading my fork as well, which I've been planning for a while. I realize that Hope hubs are convertible, but I've been debating getting a new fork since I got this bike last spring. Any tips?

    Also, I agree with the comments about those Niners, they are the t*ts.

    tip: carbon fork

    judging by the horizon in your pic it looks like that would suit you well

    I've toyed with the idea, but I'm not sold. I mean Ontario isn't exactly filled with mountains, but the trails aren't as flat as the farms around my home.

    Nice Highball! If I was upgrading to 15mm I'd go boost for future proofing. And if you ever feel like throwing a plus tire up front it makes the choices much easier.

    I like the wooden kickstand.

    SS cyclocross
    all steel

    "Fully rigid" isn't a thing.

    Is your fork a Jones or a custom? What's the hub spacing?

    Fisher Rig seen in Sapporo, Japan. Nice bike I demoed one (black) about 12 years back. Too big for me, one size smaller would have been good.

    It's a 135mm spaced Jones Truss. The Waltworks frame was specifically designed for this fork. It's by far the most solid and confidence inspiring rigid fork I've ridden, and I've ridden quick a few!
