    Building my first SS

    I am building a tight budget rigid single speed bike for fun.
    Components and $$$ spend are:
    2009 cannondale f4 frame, handle bar, pedal cranks, and seat post that came with the bike ($150 from a friend)
    Surly single speed disc wheel set, Surly singlator, Surly Stainless Steel Chainring, single speed chain, and a forte stem ($80 total from Crigislist)
    SURLY 1X1 FORK Disc ($86 from Jenson)
    Avid BB7 front and rear brakes ($51 each from Jenson)
    Avid speed dial 7 levers ($20 for a pair from Jenson)
    Shimano XTR brake calbe set ($20 from Jenson)
    SHIMANO PD-M520 PEDAL ($35 from Jenson)
    ERGON GC2 RACE GRIPS WITH ALLOY BAR ENDS ($31 from Jenson)
    About $550 into this set up so far. Everything is still in pieces. I will post pictures after it is complete.
    Let me know what you guys think about this.

    What are you using for a chain tensioner?
    I see hills.

    I want to climb them.

    I think listing a bunch of parts with no bike porn makes for a poopy thread.
