    New wheels and fixed chain line. New pics

    I had a freewheel on my fuji but wanted to upgrade the wheels so I added some Mavic cross ride 29er wheels. Pretty nice for the price. I especially like the flat spokes. The LBS gave me some origin 8 hub spacers and an 18T cog along with a lockring for $15. Super nice and helpful guys. I got it all home and put it all together. Measured the chainline and feel much better now. Much easier with having having the rear hub wheel too. Easier to get the chainline right. I got the vuelta crankset on the front with the 32T chainring. I think my first singlespeed conversion is coming along great. Also took the old shimano tourney shifters/brake levers off and added some new Avid brake levers. Haven't got to test ride it yet and it's raining today so hopefully I get some ride time in later today. Better pics coming later once I get out.

    The rain stopped so we hit the trails. The mavic wheels feel nice and solid. Not sure how to explain it but the ride feels dampened some. A little muddy here and there but it was fun. The singlespeed set up seemed pretty solid as well. Origin 8 singlespeed kit is working great. Enjoy some more pics.

    Yeah I think I am. Everything is much simpler. Well maybe not the hills. Haha. But I manage. I definitely find myself concentrating on the terrain more than my bike.
