    this thread makes me cri evrytim

    I love the SS, but sadly, i have to have gears.

    Lyme about destroyed my knee a few years back, and although I am 100% cured of lyme, it left me with a knee that 'may' bark at me and if I am on the SS I have no option other than keep hammering high torque...therefore need gears

    so sorry to drop SS I thought I could keep on it, and i can, but sometimes the knee will lock or do something 'odd' and when that occurs...I can use gears to lighten load for a bit and unf*ck it while not losing the chase...

    SS rules sadly I can't stay on them reliably. Lyme blows, people.

    Who has the baddest singlespeed?

    ive posted this before but since then I've put I9 ss wheel set the bars and stem from my sqishy stumpy on it and it's pretty bad ass for a xc frame that I've converted to a long travel ss and it's held up to about 500 miles of riding so far this year. Long live Raleigh!!!

    This one (the Red Roach) is really bad. In fact it's terrible.

    This one (the Silver Maggot) is even worse, I use it in the winter when the snow bike trails are super hard.

    I hadn't added the brakes to this one yet, and did end up changing out the crankset before somebody else HAD to have it. Stolen from my truck's locked rack... going to have to build another. Both of these SS bikes were a blast.

    It's now clear that my earlier arrogance was, at the time, somewhat unjustified (see post 292). After ****ing around with 5 different bars, 6 different stems, 4 different cogs and 6 different rear tires over the last year, my bike is now almost worthy of my prior claims (still missing a dropper, Supernatural broke, waiting on a LEV). Had a hell of time figuring out it was the stack height causing me problems, not the short reach. Also had a hell of a time getting the chainstays SHORT without a tensioner with as big of tires as possible (settled for 2.3" HR2). Feels a lot more like my old STP now, which means things are as they should be.





    Casualties since post 292:
    1) Portland Design Works brass trail bell. Got smashed 3 times, finally destroyed, but protected my XTR brake lever each time. RIP.
    2) Girly Fox 32 fork. Talas cartridge kept breaking. Good riddance. Thanks Fox for making a shitty fork.
    3) MTX rim. Killed by a rock in Albuquerque.

    I make no judgements, but I gotta say that is a goofy bar setup. I haven't seen anyone flip a bar like that since I saw a hipster running a wald touring bar upside down. He said it made him feel like Superman. Hope it's doing the same for you. Nice Walt, likin' the army green.

    Why not invert the stem and use a flat bar? Components are engineered to take loads in a certain direction and if that bar is upside down then it's taking a force in the opposite direction to which it was designed.

    I was going to say something along those lines, but...

    I agree with the statement in general about engineering of parts, but if handlebars are engineered to take loads in only one direction I think we'd all be spending much more time in the hospital. Which direction would that be - pulling up or pushing down? There are times on grinding climbs on the singlespeed that I'm pulling up on the bar hard enough I feel like it ought to snap in half. It took me quite awhile to learn to trust carbon bars because of that (but I do now). Other times, downward impact forces from bombing downhill on technical stuff with a rigid fork gives me a similar fear. If I was worried a particular bar was weaker in a certain direction, I'd change bars...
