    Dr. Clem's Rustoleum special

    Chopped up and old Trek 820 steel frame, threw everything away and made my first SS.

    Parts? I cannibalized a broken Specialized Enduro

    Used Deore BB
    Specialized Strong Arm Cranks
    Shimano PD - something or other pedals
    Specialized riser of some sort
    Specialized Stem of some sort
    Ryhno Lites front and rear

    (Had to buy brakes)
    Cheapy Shimano V-Brake on the rear
    Avid Mech on the front
    Jagwire Fake Carbon Levers, one of which I already snapped on a rogue tree limb. Fixed with a zip tie, like new.

    Surly Singleator

    It only took me 2 chains to get it right.............

    Good job!

    Looks like you also bought a new fork.

    Allow me to be the first to say, nice work, and, try the singluator in "push up" mode for better chain wrap.

    It's dreamy

    Rides quite nice actually, I'm not used to a light bike, it's nice once in awhile. gearing is 32-17. I ride trails mostly, though the occasional road ride sets me spinning like a fiend. And yes, I forgot to mention the Surly instigator fork, for $65 I figured it was better than the el cheapo elastomer RST fork that was on it before.
