    Single Speed Surlys

    I hope there is not a thread of these already, I can't seem to find it but am keen to see all the SS Surlys together as one!

    Heres my Crosscheck in commuter disguise to kick this off.

    And here's my Karate Monkey in dingle-speed mode. 36x17 for riding to the trails, 32x20 for riding them. Features a Salsa Fargo fork for bikepacking adventures.

    Beautiful bikes you have there. If I wasn't having Krampus nightmares that would be my dream Monkey.

    Here's my SS Surly:

    Back when it was rigid...

    Got my Reba on it now. Need to get pics with the reba and SS. But, might wait till next year, since I'm stripping the frame currently to get re-powdercoated, getting a new Headset and Crankset as I've worn through my last 2 in the last 2.5 years of riding since I had her. Crazy to think of the 1000's of miles I've put in on this thing. I love it, and I won't ever get rid of her!

    That green 1x1 is super classy! I really want to pick up one of those framesets. Here's my 1x1.



    More pics tomorrow since I'm riding (hopefully)

    It prevents wheel blocking. Sort of "ABS" for bikes. Do not use it anymore, changed brakes to XTR 970.

    There were other systems like that as well. My girlfriend has a similar system on her bike that modulates the brakes and keeps them from locking up, however I can't seem to remember what it was called. I personally am not a fan of them. She can't tell the difference

    *edit* Shimano Nexave v-brakes are what I'm referring to. The brake itself had "abs" on it, not just the noodle.

    What rims are those ?
    It looks like my 3x9 KM is going to look a lot like your 1x1.
    Black KM with green P-35's, grips, cash green sram cassette and some other miscellaneous green parts.

    I think braided stainless hoses would look good on your bike...

    Here's my whip! The wheels have been updated with Surly hubs, WI trials FW, and original Velocity Blunt rims laced with DT Swiss straight gauge spokes. I want to install a squish fork on it. I've also installed SLX cranks. I should just take a new pic! Single Speed Surlys-imageuploadedbytapatalk1352520636.026599.jpg
