    My new singlespeed

    Just built a little something up to go alongside this-



    It's a 32:16. Used to have BMX handlebars and a set of RS Judys up front, and a disc brake, but it was a bit bland. Obviously no SPDs for my own safety. You decide what's wrong with it other than the awful colour clash

    I hate to break this to you, but it's better you hear it from some anonymous guy on the internet than a riding buddy - you put the drivetrain on the wrong side!!!

    Self extracting brakes... now why didn't I think of that ?

    Drivetrain's on the wrong side cos- well, why not? It's a fixed, it's not meant to be right! Saw it done once, and thought that i'd love to try it on a coaster one day when i could afford a BMX rear hub for it. But then tried a fixed and loved it, and thought I may as well. Looks cool enough to me. Well, would if the bike wasn't such a hunk o' junk.

    Doubt the pedals will self extract- it's not getting ridden a great deal, only once a week, and if they do I just bob the cranks off and put them on the other side.

    One brake because it's fixed, obviously.

    And well, as for the chain- what can I say, I know- it's a right state. But it's only been used twice, just got neglected on a mate's road bike. Does the job and it's tough enough. Will have to lube it up.

    Had my first go on it yesterday- it's TERRIFYING on the big hill I live on, but it's really good fun. Nice learning all the leaning forward to slow down, and the feet getting bounced unceremoniously around when i miss a beat or two. Looking forward to taking it on the singletrack tomorrow.
