    My First Singlespeed build

    Finally decided to do a singlespeed build, here's what I have so far

    Parts so far:
    Trek 3700 frame
    Sunrims laced to shimano hubs
    Forte chain tensioner
    Bontrager seat post
    And a simple Rock Shox fork

    What do you guys think of this crank

    Here's a quick picture so far

    Those cranks are cheap for a reason. Get some LX or SLX cranks. You can find them for $70-$120 on eBay or places like Nashbar. I'd imagine Black Friday would be a good time to get the best prices.

    Check out these. You can find XT five bolts on ebay for decent prices from time to time too...

    A DH crankset? Check out Jenson USA - they have LX cranksets on for $70.
    If you want all the comforts of home, stay there.

    Get the Shimano.

    I second Umarth.
    Those look like a steal.

    I know, those were a steal, I had the highest bid but then lost it at the very last min.

    I just picked up a fork, a Fox RL and some handlebars. It's coming along slowly
