    ... and if we just ...

    Who has the baddest singlespeed?

    I do.
    U do.
    We all do.
    I'm amazed at how "kick ass" my bike is and the fact that you may have a nice bike and it may be better than mine. I still "think" mine is better. And my SS may looks stupid to you, but it's still better than yours.
    But what happens when my 29 SS is ready to ride?
    Right now my 26 SS Rules.

    Interesting thread with some good "baddest" bikes and I think I get what the original poster is looking for. I think is goal is to see what can be done for an ultimate bike.

    Personally I like bikes with a custom touch and a consistent theme. A friend of mine has what I think is a fairly nice looking build with a nice selection of components and colors that look good together.


    My own dream bike is a few years away. My current bike is a work in progress and not yet ready for this thread.

    You got it....I may have to dig through my history and add some pics of bikes that come to mind. Sometimes things as simple as high-quality matching off the shelf parts can really make a bike stand out. It's how it comes together.

    Your friends bike is sweet!

    From the original poster...

    We can make this yet another post a photo of your bike thread but I think the OP was thinking it would be more of a collection of super high end builds.

    I am not trying to hate but in my book quite a few of the bikes posted on the thread are not up to the standards the OP was asking for. Seriously BB7s, china cromo is fun and all but I think the OP was looking for seriously high end stuff. I mean please... if rims are made in Taiwan the label should say "Taiwan Classic".

    For me, a seriously high end bike would be a top of the line frame dressed up with top of the line components with things like ENVE rims with I9, King, Hadley, hubs. I have some nice stuff on my bike but it is not nearly at the level the OP was looking for so I did not post my own bike.

    That is a seriously long seat post, is it custom and how long is it?

    Thanks. The seatpost is a titanium Eriksen 30.9 layback with a custom length of 450mm. I wanted as much standover as possible so I can jump around on it more easily.

    I share the same sentiment. I love quality parts and craftsmanship and whenever possible will use it on my bikes. Based on some of the SS builds i've seen in person I know we aren't alone.

    There are some ENVE parts on my build list..If they replace the Easton carbon parts I have now will depend on how much side work and overtime I can do.

    I'd say this, Ned's championship bike from a couple years ago. It has a couple nice bits but I'd say it's a lot more than the bike in this case.

    Kudos on building the frame!

    Mine isn't the most high end build, but for a Dawes frame it's probably 90 percentile. I LOVE this frame.

    Wheels: Sun Ringle MTX 33 (36 hole) laced 4-cross with swaged DT Swiss spokes to Hope Pro II hubs. Built by Mike Curiak.
    Cranks/pedals: Shimano XT, Crank Bros Eggbeaters
    Brakes: Avid BB7 with Avid Speed Levers (I have no desire to ever upgrade from these). 180mm up front, 160mm in back.
    Headset: Cane Creek 40
    Saddle: Brooks B17, held in place by a Thomson seatpost clamp
    Stem: Specialized Comp (adjustable by means of shims)
    Bars: Stock Dawes baby! Love these things... sturdy, great riding position.
    Fork: Manitou Tower Pro

    It's my $180 CL special outfitted with $1500 of parts.

    Do theses frames have swap outs?
