    My Singlespeed Project(Finally Finished)

    I am running a 30:16 setup and climbs just fine. This build took me forever because this tech sold me used disc brakes with V Brake bolts already on it. I couldn't figure out what kept catching my rear wheel. I will post some close ups soon!

    Your front wheel is facing the wrong way. The rotor tabs should face the left fork leg. Looks pretty cool.

    Seat is lower for maneuverability in trails I raise it for commuting and stuff.....Yeah the front tire is weird....the tab gets stuck on the bottoome of my motion valave at the bottom of the forks ....anything you can suggest?

    what tab ... do you mean the QR lever? .... if so, just put the skewer thru the other way (the way you have it but turn the wheel around) because the mounts for the rotor shouldnt be a problem on the left side

    I can tell by the tire tread pattern that your front wheel needs to flipped around.

    Yeah, check the direction arrow on the tire's sidewall. Awesome build by the way. I like Access (even though they are a bit heavy). Performance has those frames for a very competitive price!

    Thanks man thats one of the main reasons I went SS. The frame itself is surprisingly only 3.8 lbs its pretty decent just under 30 lbs It may even be lighter.....killer on inclines and will probably never go geared again. I think my chain ring is a bit bent though which blows because its brand new...it has this weird uneven spin that I never noticed until today
