    A picture story of a Yeti Big Top single speed build

    This is a Big Top we built for a client of ours, I feel it was a very well thought out build. No super weight weenie parts, everything is durable epic ride ready. This bike came in a little over 21 pounds with pedals (steel spindle) and sealant.







    We did a full custom clear bra on this frame, top tube, down tube, inside the seat and chain stays

    Are those stock Stan's wheels or a custom option?

    Thanks!

    Ernesto: lol'ssss

    We are really digging the bike! I knew when I had the parts in hand it was going to be a nice build, but the final product has me blown away.

    Loudpawlz: They are a Stanís built wheel, but two options were chosen, black spoke nipples, and the single speed rear hub. They are still a very reasonably priced wheel-set built as they are, takes us about a week to get them into our shop.

    Pretty swank and really light. Wish I had a SS in that range.

    Why did you use aluminum chainring bolts? (I'm assuming).

    Tell us more about the rear dropouts on those Big Tops. You remove the geared dropout and insert a SS dropout in it's place or something?

    That's a sharp bike! Wicked nice!

    I will post up better stand alone photo's of the drop outs in the next day or so.

    Basically you hit the nail on the head, remove geared drop outs and bolt on the optional sliders.

    I didn't know there were black steel chainring bolts. I probably could have guessed...

    A little update to this thread.

    After a year or so the household who took the big top featured on this thread brought another one into the mix. Hard to tell from the picture but one is medium the other is xl.

    These bikes belong to two very serious riders. The first is going strong into it's second season of riding/training/racing.

    Awesome build ups! I'm considering a Big Top to replace a Trek Rig frame. Any idea what the Medium weighs frame only?

    ^ I'm wondering real life, I've seen times often vary from manufacturer's site.
