    ... and if we just ... Final product... Resurrection!~

    I finally finished my first SS build.
    Originally bought this Trek 850 at age:13 (with my own money )
    Stripped the frame of the ugly cable stops, rewelded two of the cable
    stops onto the left side top tube, sandblasted and powder coated the
    frame and fork.
    Got Very lucky with a 32:17 combo that fits like a charm!
    Thanks for the help and enjoy the pics!
    The frame color is "black chrome", looks almost identical to the new
    XTR crank arm color. Love it!

    Where'd you get those!?

    HomegrownMN,

    Just wondering where you got those red cog spacers and who makes them? That's the first time I've seen them and it worrys me. Why you ask? I had the same idea a while ago for my SS, prototyped them, rode with them a while, and I was just going to send the drawings out for quote. I plan on selling them (dependent on pricing) and was actually going to look to this forum for feedback as to whether or not people liked a picture of prototypes and would be interested in purchasing them. I would also like to ask for a couple of volunteers to ride some more prototypes and offer feedback. I'll keep that until I get quotes back though.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    They are made by a company called: American Singlespeed here in Sauk Rapids Minnesota. They also sell them on Ebay. I found the kit locally in St.Paul at Grand Performance.
    So far I love them, they work flawlessly except for the master link in the 1/8" chain
    was rubbing on one spacer. Shaved down the master link pins and no more problems.
    Looks like someone beat you to the punch.

    Yep.

    I searched on ebay right away and found it. Thanks.

    Sounds like there is room for improvement though. Stay tuned.

    Website is still under construction but check back very soon. www.project-one.us

    Sorry to get off the original topic here. That frame looks pretty nice now. It's cool when the gearing works out to the perfect chain tension.

    I like those tires you have on it in the "original" picture. What are they?
