    I hope I'm not the only person upset that Zions went by the wayside.

    Converted over to ss yesterday

    I got this GT from a friend who is moving away. I should have taken a before picture of the bike. Anyway I converted it over yesterday and rode it to work today, it rides great. I almost have the magic gear setup. I am running a 32/18 combo but I think I will go to a 34/18, I think that will get me the right chain tension and I can get rid of the tensioner.

    Latter

    Honestly, I would have had no clue had I not read 2 other threads. One that you started showing off the bike, as you should since that thing is beautiful. Another one that someone else started asking about the frames/dropouts and you responded to. Nice looking bikes. I just don't have that kind of coin to drop on a frame alone. Wish I did. For now I will stick with building a Vassago Jabberwocky. Look for pictures in the near future because it is coming together pretty quick.

    Redline Monocog 29er

    Here's my Redline Monocog 29er. I've only had it for a couple of weeks, it was an ebay find. I just installed the disk brakes this weekend. Total invested, around $350. Rides great, I love it.

    Recently built up a new trail bike, so my old 97 Hoo Koo E Koo got turned into a single speed. I realize the pic is of the wrong side, but I threw on a cheap-o Alivio crankset (42x16) and a Surly Singleator.


    I took her out for her inaugural ride today, end up doing 20+ miles of bike paths. Never had a reason to complain. If anyone is browsing this thread thinking about building a SS, I say do it!

    My GT Peace 9er multi lasted about 1 week before I converted it. With a 32x16 I ended up with a perfect chain length. The tensioner is sitting on a box. Weight is about 27.

    Budget build. Haven't done the total yet but should be under 350 or so.
    rides really sweet
    I am suppose to get a rigid fork in a couple weeks. Right now the fork came off of a trek 820. feels like 5 pounds

    M 1fg

    I haven't been on it much lately due to some leg fatigue but it's built to 21 lbs. If I get to riding the ss more I might replace the old dented 1fg but until then it works for me.

    My new Surly 1x1. The only thing left is to build a matching rear wheel, (Sun Ryhno Lite XL on a DMR Singlespeed Hub).







    Specs:

    Surly 1x1 20"
    DMR Hub on Sun Rhyno Lite XL (rear wheel coming soon)
    Hope Headset, Stem and Spacers
    Easton EA30 Bar and Seatpost
    Avid FR-5/Single-Digit Brakes
    Shimano Octalink Cranks
    Specialized Saddle and Tyres 26x2.2

    Feels like a tractor... in a good way!

    What kind of frame is that?
    Looks like you could take a few more links out of the chain and mess with the gear sizes to get the magic gear combo and get rid of the tensioner.

    Nice Ride!

    Thanks Ken, it's a Surly 1x1. They're track ends (horizontal 'dropouts') so I don't really need to look for a 'magic gear'. Got the chain tight enough that it won't fall out, but not so tight that I'll feel the inevitable tight spots in a singlespeed drivetrain. Hopefully I'll get some extra life out the chain too if I don't tighten it right up.

    Beautiful. I love the blue with the raw titanium.


    This is mine:


    It's a '99 Homegrown frame (not Yeti) tensioned with an Eno. It's one of the few Homegrown frames which came with a 80mm fork. It alternates between 32x16 and 32x18 depending on where I'm going and when in the season it is. I run a SRAM PC-58 chain with two power links in it, and I have two sections of chain I'll swap in depending on if I'm running the 16t or 18t freewheel.

    Here's my new ss. Chaka Pele steel frame for Rohloff, that's why there's sliding dropouts. I've been riding ss for around 6 years, mainly between home and work about 3000 km per year. Today I rode my first trail ride in two years (had a bit of lack of motivation) and boy was it fun!

    Cranks/Chainring: Big Cheese, 38T
    Tires: Kenda Krusher 2.1s,
    Seatpost: Cheapo action bikes micro adjust.

    Gonna pick up some better pedals and maybe put my brooks on it. the velo is comfy, but my brooks B17N is just better. Also have some planet bike hardcore fenders for when its rainy. This will see mostly railtrails, and the C&O, but will get some fireroad and singletrack as well. Gonna get a TomiCog as well for when I'm feeling the fix. Sorry for the crappy pics, my phone sucks.

    Thanks man.

    There is just something about this bike that calls to me. I have 10 great bikes in my stable but this is the one I ride most of the time.

    Mine's not as nice as some, but it rides well. I've just finished converting it today.

















    It's 26.5lb, but I'm only 143lb, so it's still not much weight overall to push up a hill.

    Gearing is 2:1 (32:16) which I hope to change to 2.13:1 (32:15) which might just negate the need for a tensioner. Tyres are Maxxis Ardents @ 2.25 x 26.

    hey nuck-chorris, it's an OS blackbuck, limited numbers, cheap, and designed by buddy from WTB.


    arcdesign: seeing you've got a white industries freewheel screwed onto the spinergy there, is there a surly fixxer hiding underneath or something more clever?
    (reason I ask is because I had tons of fun converting my spinergy spox wheels to ss and when i found out the models I had used shimano freehub bodies the surly fixxer became an option, just wanted to see how you'd done it)

    That's it. Nothing clever at all.

    1 part Spinergy death wheel
    +
    1 part Surly Fixxer
    =
    Carbon Fixietard Wheel

    add Eno freewheel
    =
    Cool Carbon SS Wheel

    I actually got the idea from a Japanese fixie site I stumbled across (see attachment).

    Go for it.

    Quiring Steel 29er

    I just put it together and will probably be swapping a few parts. I am really happy with the way it turned out.

    Is this a custom bike built for you? You've got a bunch of spacers, a huge stem and then a riser bar, I'm just curious if that's how you planned it, or if the custom geo was that far off...

    Yes it is custom. I am thinking about going with a flat bar or taking out the big spacer and putting a smaller one in. But this is how I wanted the bike, it is second custom with this geometry. I am just a freak with long arms and torso so it fits good. I am finally comfortable on the bike.

    new to me (both the bike and single speeding)

    KHS Solo One SE
    I use it mostly for commutinng. I can't seem to get the rear sliders to stay put. I think I got the cog side set (after the chain came off and had the pedals rake my leg), but the brake side keeps moving. Looking forward to the simplicity part of minimal maintenance once I get it properly set up.

    Sand the paint off the contact points between the frame and the sliders. This is the number one cause of sliding dropouts not staying put that I read about on the forums. Good luck with that.

    First post on the boards... This is my SS converted 99' Trek 7000. I bought it new back then and recently went through a few different phases with it. I still plan on a new saddle, wheels, and disc conversion...

    Haven't had a chance to borrow someone's crank arm extractor yet, so this is how I'm riding mine. Got some grippy street tires on it right now.

    I have been using this tensioner for 4 years now, the only downside is if the chain is a tad too long it can skip on the steep stuff

    Heres one of mine; the other is still undergoing construction.
    *EDIT* I FINALLY got my Surly 1x1 fork in today so it'll be going on soon along with better wheels (Mavic 317's with Deore hubs) and a new headset (Cane Creek S-3.)

    This is my work in progress.

    2008 Diamondback Response Sport.

    All stock so far except brakes. Replaced the Hayes MX4's for Avid BB7's. World of difference...

    As you can see, the third geared chainring is still on. That's because I did not have (nor did the bike shop) have bolts shallow enough to bolt the single chain ring on by itself, so I threw on my geared chainring just so the existing bolts I had could bite the threads and screw down. The third chainring is not functional, and the chainring that the chain is on is a true single speed 32T chainring.

    Currently running 32-14 gearing, but I plan to change that. Leaving it as is for now since 32-14 on my bike is the "magic ratio." I plan to mount a Rennen Rollenlager Chain Tensioner on the bike as I doubt I will be able to find a magic ratio with the bigger gears. I plan to try a couple different combinations so I'll need some slack to work with, and the Rennen to provide the tension.

    Anyways, it's a work in progress that just began. But there it is!

    This is another scavenged build... I stole the wheels from my commuter (put the old ones back on there) and built this up for some fun weekend riding. The bars are temporary, as I can't decide between my Scott AT-3s or the AT-4s that are currently mounted on the commuter. I'm also not completely sold on whether or not I'm keeping it? A tire swap is DESPEATELY needed too, those treads made for a good bit of rolling resistance on the way to work this morning! Rigid SS'ing is SO much fun!



    and here's the commuter in it's current condition... still a LOAD of fun!



    Oh, and I may as well post the last in the stable... my Motobecane Fantom UNO... TOO much fun! It's fixed, oh, and don't mind the bar angle, that was mid setup!

    Posted this over on the thread about converting road bikes but figured since this crowd digs Soulcrafts it was worth adding to this mix.

    I'll try and get a few more pics posted. The bike is dirty now, and not a bling machine by any measure, but it is truly the most fun I've ever had on a bike.

    My Vassago Jabberwocky I have had several SSs but this is my favorite. It has a real nice feel. I have the FOX G2 and really like this fork. Overall, a fun ride.

    thanks... Rusty is a handful, but he settles down after a long ride in the trails.

    the 650b wheels fit like a glove, no complaints yet.

    thanks for the flowers guys.

    It is a sweet sweet bike for sure. It isn´t that ugly and it rides very BMXy. It only is a lil on the harsh side. Neither the Kelly fork, nor th Chromag bars have a lot of give. And the 415mm chainstays are on the beefier side too. Takes gettin used to its character, but than comes the love...

    btw: I got a few pms concernig the crankset: It is an old Sachs Quarz crankset (XT-level) that is a cold forget version of the twisted boone crankset design.

    I like those misfits, but why the dip in the TT? I can't see any benefit, except added standover clearance (which really isn't a benefit). Cable routing is kind of a pain, I'd guess.

    THat is the point of the dip yea the stand over height and unless you dont have balls then I guess its not a benfit. My balls in the other hand love it when I don't slam them.

    I see. But I have not slammed into the TT in a long long time. I've wrecked plenty over the bars, sliding out, etc., but not right onto the TT.

    I don't know for sure, but it looks like the swingarm pivots around the bottom brackt. ie, the chainstay length doesn't change. But that is a guess, I do not know for sure.

    Yep, Lenz makes FS frames with the main pivot around the BB. The production 29er FS with that style is now called the Milk Money (search for it, there are some cool threads and pictures)

    That El Mariachi looks nice, I don't think I've ever seen one that color.

    Is that a custom dent in the top tube? I got one just like it from trying to move my bikes and snowboard in the same truck, what about yours?

    It's funny, i've got some expensive bikes sitting around my house, but this is the one that i end up riding the most.
    Currently flirting with the idea of putting a short-travel fork on, to make it a little more versatile (and save my wrists)

    Whole bunch of new stuff.
    Jagwire Kevlar Enforced Lines (pink)
    Alligator Ti Rotors
    KMC gold singelspeed chain ( tried the light one but it snapped )
    Easton EC70 Bars
    3T Arx Pro stem
    Carver EBB ( rocks so much)
    Race Face Cranks
    20T. ( new jersey is not a 16 t friendly place..)
    Pink Bottle Cages
    and planet trippy pink grips ( so great)
    Small Block 8's Sealed Tubeless with 1/2 stans 1/2 slime and some confetti
    apex carbon seat post


    In the future,
    WTB pink seat
    niner 20 t cog.
    king headset.
    Manitou Elite fork or if the sid 29er rumor is true one of those.
    Love this bike, my first SS and 29er. Im glad i bought into this.

    If you have one of these do yourself a favor and buy the carver delrin ebb. It save you so much trouble and makes your ride so more enjoyable.

    I decked the bike out in pink because its a GF rig ( aka the plague) so it turns some heads and makes it different. People laugh untill i get over obstacles they cant on my pink bike :P

    Here is my, new to me, Redline Monocog. I picked it up for $125.00 which I thought was a pretty decent deal considering I know the guy I bought it from and he is very good at doing regular maintenance to his bikes. I plan to change some things down the road. Over winter I plan to paint it white and do all flat black trim to it. I'm not much of a fan of red. It currently has a Rockshox Judy XC on it which I will upgrade at some point too. This is my first SS. I had a Prophet that I sold about 16 months ago because I just didn't have time to ride. That has changed now and wanted to try out SS so here it is.

    It's a COG Bicycles Über Alles. COG is the brand the owner of our local bike shop, Cog Bike Cafe. The frame is singlespeed specific, built from 100% Columbus Zona.

    The spec:
    PRO carbon fork (White Bros. copy?)
    Velocity Blunt rims, Hope Pro II hubs, DT Comp spokes.
    White Industries ENO 180mm crankset, Deore bottom bracket. 32t chainring, 18t rear cog. Izumi chain.
    LX brakes. 2.4 Ralph front, 2.25 rear.
    Ritchey WCS bar, Oury lock-ons.
    Stem, seatpost and possibly the saddle will be changed later.
    The brakelines have been cut since the pics.

    The bike weighs in at approx. 20.9 pounds. It is a very quick bike. Only one ride so far, but I'm loving it!

    replaceable hangers are not terribly common on steel bikes nor have they ever been. Steel can be bent back without weakening it and is less likely to snap either

    Maybe that's why I haven't been aware of that, being I am not really a big fan of steel frames...

    I was just kind of surprised to see it. I mean it's one thing if it's a true single speed with horizontal drops, but for a bike that was originally a geared bike it only takes 1 solid complete wipeout to nail that hanger dead on with a rock during a nasty fall and do some damage.

    Very nice color scheme... love the white

    What chain tensioning system does it use, track ends? I can't quite see the rear dropouts.

    Ye, those Pro/Shimano forks are from the same factory as the WBs (and eXotic, and Saso, Fetish, Origin8...). I'm actually on the lookout for them, but they're not available in my area yet. Another cheaper alternative to the WBs, but with a reputable name behind it.
    Better to have and not need it, than to need it and not have it.

    Here's my Green Machine... I got the frameset from a friend and raided the parts bin to put this together.

    Thanks!

    The bike has horizontal dropouts and a tugnut on the drive side.

    Good to hear that about the PRO fork.

    Where'd you get the black Fox fork? 80mm? I know Fox make them but pretty sure you cant get them aftermarket? Was this off a complete bike?

    Thanks, D

    Fetish cycles Fixation

    Haven't seen one of these posted in a while, so I figured I'd throw mine up there. Fetish Cycles Fixation frame, '09 Manitou Minute fork, race face cranks, DT Swiss/Surly and Single Track/Quando wheelsets, FSA stuff, etc.

    A Pink coloured Orange, or a misnamed bike?

    Here is my newly built P7. I've had the frame for 10 months and had it built as a geared bike but my Titus Ridler SS was a little too small, and it's carbon fork a little too fragile so I stripped both and built the Pink Bike into my new SS.
    Given her one shakedown ride that was a disaster due to a flat and chain slack so I don't really know what she is like yet (as a single) Hopefully with the bigger tires, Revelation and the geometry it should be a bit of a tank and just roll over everything in its path.

    Just completed building my first singlespeed just a few minutes ago. I found a used 2005 Fetish Discipline frame, that had marked up paint but the frame was in good shape, so I had it powdercoated. Most of the parts were either bought used, free, or really good deals. Just took her out for a quick spin around the neighborhood, and kept looking to shift Should be fun. Im just worried that my Stumpjumper FSR will not get as much use if I really like SS'ing.

    HOLY ****. That is a nice looking bike. Mine is almost exaclt the same except I have a silver post, stem, and bars and I am running CK hubs. Are you running fixed in the rear or what? Where did you find red Phil's hubs?

    Nice bikes!....Why do so many of them not have chain tensioners? I thought that was a necessity for a singlespeed rig so the chain doesn't get floppy?
    8 is great
