    Yes... The frame can swap between vertical and horizontal dropouts. This Lurcher model is the SS specific model and shipped with the horizontal dropouts. It also does not have all the cable stops for shifter cables (but a few zip ties can solve that issue). I think the normal geared model comes with the vertical dropouts and all the cable stops.

    I should also say I switched out the black Thompson post for a Eriksen Ti with blue hardware on the Kish. Looks and rides MUCH better. Also silent as can be. The Thompson creaked like crazy which I've never had before on any other bike.

    I like the small details like matching nipples, valve collar and cap, etc. Hard to walk the line of too much vs just enough customization

    Well Christmas came early this year and my frame came a month earlier than I had expected.. Within a couple hours of receiving it, my "baddest singlespeed" was born. I had to cut back on the parts budget a bit, so a few items were scaled down, but after 30mi I am in love.

    Here is my current build in progress. All parts are either at my shop, in which I work, or on backorder waiting to ship.

    Frame: Trek 69er 17.5 (new old stock...two of them )
    Fork: Niner carbon, nude
    Brakeset: Shimano XTR Trail
    Crankset: Sram XO (grey/black)
    Chainring: 32t MRP Bling Ring
    Pedals: SHimano XTR
    Bottom Bracket: Chris King Ceramic GXP (brown ano)
    Rear Cog: Chris King 18t
    Seatpost: Thomson Masterpiece
    Saddle: Fizik Gobi XM or Charge Spoon (brown leather)
    Handlebar: Bontrager Big Sweep RXL carbon
    Grips: ODI Cross Trainer (brown, new old stock)
    Stem: Bontrager XXX 75mm carbon
    Headset: Chris King (brown ano)
    Wheels: Front 29" Stan's Crest Chris King hubs (ceramic, brown ano)
    Rear 26" Stan's Crest Chris King SS hub (ceramic, brown ano)

    If anyone has any suggestions I really want to hear them because I am trying to make a very unique and "bad ass" single speed. Doesn't get much more unique than a 69er. Should be finished by the end of January and I'll post up pics.

    Hate, LOVE, to say it, but I do. I'll take the Pepsi challenge to any of the SS's displayed so far. And there have been some baddest singlespeeds posted up, no doubt! But you only get to see my single speeds when you're riding with me and WoS ;-)

    I don't dig the stickers myself, just been too lazy to spend the time peeling em off.

    Seatpost is an Easton EC70 27.2

    The safety wire is just a detail that serves more form than function (although it is done correctly)..My brother and I were both aviation mechanics in the military so I knew he'd get a smile on his face when he noticed that.

    Thanks! I'm not too proud to admit that I went out to the garage a few times just to stare at the bike on the stand for a minute or two.

    Mt pet peeve - de-stickering hoops. Looks like someone hiding a cheap brand...

    Safety wired brake mounting bolts. I bet you raced motorcycles at some point...

    Nice bikes everyone. I also have a Lynskey single speed, but I would hardly call my bike badass. But I consider myself fortunate to have it.

    However, the only badass part of a single speed is the rider. And even that is not always the case.

    Lots of BLING there! But the coolest thing I have seen and actually haven't seen before was WTH you actually do with the little wire that comes with the M985 brakes! Mine are still in the box. I figured it was to tie the bolts in somehow but this the first time I have actually seen it done!

    Thanks,
    I got the frame 2nd hand about a year ago and it was real clean. Somebody scraped off the Ti Hag decal which bummed me out. All I do it hit it with metal polish every once in a while.
