    Am I the only person to have set up an ASR for SS?

    Recently I made the switch from an ARC to a secondhand ASR (01 model, black chainstays and bearing pivots with Float RL).

    Previously I had set up my ARC for singlespeed with a Rennen Rollenlager, a Middleburn Uno crankset and either cassette, Surly, or tuffnek cogs.

    In the interests of getting a little fitter I've SS'd the ASR using my old XO mech as a tensioner to allow for chain growth. (don't hate me, the XO got sucked into my back wheel 12 months ago in an accident and all the pivots are slightly ovalised so it's precision shifting days are over and I use an X9 for my 27 speed duties now, but the XO does make a very bling tensioner)

    Anyone else SSing any of the Yeti dual sussers?

    For commute I'm finding the ASR on 32:13 works pretty well and for trails with steeper hills I'm using 32:16 at present.

    Pic will have to wait till I can get to work sorry.

    Spec at present:

    Frame: 01 Yeti ASR
    Fork: 05 Fox Vanilla 100R
    Headset: Chris King
    Rims: Velocity VXC
    Hubs: Front Hugi 240 disc, Rear Hope XC
    Spokes: DT Revolution
    Tyres: Syncros FLT 3 Factory 2.1
    BB: SKF 600 series stainless steel ISIS
    Cranks:Middleburn RS8 with Uno
    Pedals: Shimano PDM 540
    SS spacer: Rennen
    Tensioner: SRAM XO Long Cage
    Rear cogs: Shimano Ultegra 16 tooth and 13 tooth
    Seatpost: Thompson Elite 26.8
    Stem BBB
    Bars: Easton carbon monkey lite riser
    Grips: Yeti lock on black
    Bar Ends: BBB
    Saddle: SDG Bel Air Cowprint
    Brakes: Hayes Mag Ti Plus
    Chainguide: Rohloff

    I'd really like to ex the BBB bar ends and stem for something a little less low brow, but they actually work really well.

    I'd also like to sort out some sort of chainguide/tensioner setup so that I didn't still have a rear mech hanging around the back. I mean, what's the point of going SS if everyone who makes a quick glance still thinks you're running gears?

    The big thing I want to do is to Push my Float RL shock as it's one from back in the day before ProPedal and for SS that makes a big difference.

    No idea on total weight at the moment. Frankly, I don't much care, I'm just having fun getting out for a ride on the rare occasion I can.

    Come to Canberra, Australia and ride Mt Stromlo

    Looks cool.. I am not a fan of risers with barends... and, as you said, before, you might switch them.. I would, but can also see how useful they could be while SSing...

    When I had the ARC, I had a Salsa ProMoto flat bar on it and I could never get comfortable, no matter what I did with stems, spacers, saddle/seatpost position.

    When I purchased this ASR frame, it had the Easton Monkey lite riser on it and felt comfortable straight from the outset.

    Riding SS, the bar ends do make a substantial difference.

    I'm well aware that it's "not a look" to have bar ends on a riser.

    Fact is, it suits how I'm riding so I'll put up with the slings and arrows I guess...

    Heck, folks wear flared pants and argyle these days and I never thought we'd see them again...

    Yep. I totally see your point... however on my SS the wide raisers do it for me... but as you say.. whatever rocks your boat

    Yes but it has about 26 gears too many...

    ...to qualify as a singlespeed.

    Nice rig though.

    I'd love a newer ASR but that's the only thing I'd change mine for. Suits my riding perfectly.

    Well a branch or a rock in the right spot could fix that up
