    Swobo Mutineer Single Speed Build

    Might as well put this here. Former recreational roadie that stopped bikes aroun 2014, and now building a single speed mtb for fun. Will see light trails and lots of stuff around town. Not really any big hills.

    Goal is to be a budget bike. Frame was $234 and wheels + tires was $120. Thought about Avid BB7s, but Deore M6000 are relatively close to the same price. I also would prefer new brakes.

    If you have any recommendations for parts, feel free to chime in.

    Bought this



    and these

    Wheelset: Mavic XM119 with Continental Race Kings + tubes (Craigslist)

    Things I'll buy soon:

    Quick release: HALO PORKIES QR WHEEL SKEWERS from Jenson or a steel rear QR and buy a front QR.

    Brakeset (levers, calipers, and hose): SHIMANO DEORE BR-M6000 DISC BRAKE. Front 180mm and rear 160mm from Jenson

    Rotors: undecided but leaning towards SHIMANO SM-RT56 6-BOLT ROTOR from Jenson.

    Gears: undecided on which brand cog, but I want stainless steel. Will use in conjunction with Gear Clamp. If the Gear Clamp sucks, I'll just get spacers/conversion kit.

    Seatpost: TBD;have to find out sizing then I'll get a cheap aluminum one.

    Saddle: TBD; might steel have a WTB Speed V laying around somewhere

    Handlebars: TBD; probably cheap aluminum

    Grips: TBD; need to see what looks good with the frame color

    Pedals: TBD; currently leaning towards VP Components VP-Vice Pedals on Amazon for $34, but something tells me that may be too good to be true. I'll probably have to contact VP to determine if they are counterfeits.

    Chain: some cheap SRAM that will work.

    Ordered/bought today:

    Grips: SE Bikes Wing Grips in blue. Their website has a fairly accurate color; it's actually a little more of a powder blue.

    Brakeset: Shimano Deore M6000 front and rear

    Handlebars: Niner flat top alloy bars

    KCNC blue headset spacers...need to see if they match the grips/bike. If they do, I'll order their SC10 seatpost clamp.

    30T is what I'd get, even a 32T crank makes me sweat, tried it and it was bad---for me I'm only 5'6", the rear 20T is pretty standard
    Cheap people buy things twice
