    WOWSERS! I suppose I must feel superior to other SS'ers as I have a SS dedicated hub lol.

    Seriously though as long as it's SS haha.

    I agree about the ZEN comment also as it has always been a revelation to me SS since my early days of original On One Inbred.
    Riding bikes means life behind bars, except no TV :-d

    Yeah, I guess I'm not very badass since only one of my 3 SS bikes has a dedicated SS hub. Looks all cobbled together and what not.

    ^ A while ago I lost out on an auction for some gold Hadley SS hubs that would have gone into a build that would've looked very probably exactly like that, with the exception of the gold chain. Nice gumwalls too. Have fun with that SS!
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    Maybe that came out harsh on this thread, I'll agree.
    I do feel that people should have accurate information on what parts make up a good or the "baddest" single speed bike. That's all. Have a good ride

    Not trying to imply superiority but whatever, you've got some nice bikes and I'm sure if you BFF was building up a SS you might suggest using a SS specific hub for a better wheel.

    Why limit yourself to an SS hub? Great, it's marginally stronger being dishless but I for one occasionally throw an RD and cassette on my Jones in the winter so when I'm on the snow covered trails I can ride uphill with a degree of traction in low gear. You post up a pic of your SS yet?
