    26" Dedicated Single Speed Frame

    DO THEY EXIST???

    In all seriousness though, I cannot, for the life of me, find more than 2 or 3 options for a 26" single speed specific frame. Just start listing the names off please.

    I've always wanted a Chameleon. Or buy a used Kona, Jamis, etc.

    Simple Bicycle Co. built mine. He did a great job and I love the frame. No tabs for gears, no hangers, all singlespeed.

    Redline makes the monocog and monocog flight.

    What else is out there? Chromag has some sweet frames but I don't think they are true SS.

    That's the way it ought to be!

    Monitor the used market.

    You want track ends?
    Bianchi SS family, Soma 4one5, Jamis Exile,
    The KHS Solo-One was a hardtail in 2006, before that it was softail.
    Giant made an excellent frame called the Two2One.
    Voodoo Nzumbi. (but you'll have to outbid me--I'd buy one just to hang on the wall)

    Ventana El Toro. I used to own one that was dedicated SS and 26". First EBB I ever used and worked just fine. Their new ones are called the El Toro Bravo and I believe are only 29er..

    What you see is not a der. hanger. It is a bottle opener on most..

    All the shifter cable guides come off, and you can buy a SS/hangerless drop out.

    And its best feature: Adjustable chain stay length. No need for tugs or tensioner.

    Even though Ventana doesn't have them on their website anymore, you can still get an El Toro...

    My boy has a 2004 21" Bianchi SASS (chrome Dedaciai tubeset) with a slight crack in the chainstay he's willing to give up to the highest bidder who wants to repair steel. Also, the Bianchi DISS 21" in aluminum which he is currently riding. Those are both 26" dedicated SS bikes.

    It's getting hard enough to just find a good selection of 26" hard-tails in general I reckon!

    Last year bought a Haro Rerseve 1.1, I added a front disk to it. I put a longer seat post in and added a better seat. I'm running 25 and 14 tooth cogs. It is my main ride. I do like it a bunch. I've got a lot miles on it and have had no problems. It keeps a silly grin on my face.

    I like my 26er SS, but if I spend most of my time riding my geared 29er or SS 29er and go back to it, I'm more squirrely than normal for awhile. I have to learn than you don't have to steer as much on the 26er, and it's more subtle movements to get the bike to do what you want. I nearly ended up on the ground a few times before the light bulb went on!

    found pic

    here she is... 2003 I think. Replaced my Bianchi BOSS from 1998. I liked that the El Toro didn't have any cable bosses for shift cables. It gave it a clean and dedicated SS look.
