    Among all these beautiful $$$ bikes, here is my budget Response



    $22 Conversion kit from Performance Bike, I think it's a great starter kit for the money.

    Upgrade to a 1/8" chainring, and better tensioner when you have money. Then it's as good as any other.

    I think it works perfectly fine so far. Money is not an issue either. I just bought a 29er and didn't have any luck selling this on CL... So, I decided to throw a rigid front end on it and the Performance SS kit since they had them in my local store. Wanted to try SS and thought this was pretty easy. It makes more noise from the tensioner then the higher end ones do, but it works.

    1984 shcwinn Mesa runner

    found it in an industrial size ditch by my sisters house, it was built up for my brother that needs to start exercising but he didn't like it so i will probably be a donor bike. i love how the super raked fork provides superb comfort . the brakes are horrible and the seat rails are bent but that doesn't stop me form riding(unless the is no air in the tires that lose all pressure after one day )


    the digital camera is from about 99' so the quality sucks:

    Think about that build much or just throw that together with parts from your garage. Jeeesh! Could that be any more blingy, sexy, well thought out? Alright young padewan, your new objective is to actually take that beauty out of the house and beat it to death....but gently.

    Everyone says this!

    Why do you say this?

    I'm sure your SS is fun and all, but isn't it just different from your geared bike?

    I like shifting gears!

    I can't wait to build an SS so I can see what all the hysteria is about

    Nice bike by the way. Please excuse my rant!

    I think a lot of it is mental, well to me anyway. Instead of trying to be in the right gear, you focus on the trail and just keeping your momentum up. Yes, hills do requirer a bit more work, but that can be changed with momentum and choosing the right lines. Another benefit to me is the weight of the bike. I haven't weighed it yet, but I believe I lost about 5-7 pounds from the bike... just by going rigid fork and removing anything dealing with gears. By being lighter it handles better and makes it easier.

    These are my personal views and experienced feelings from riding it.

    Man I tried that saddle as my full timer but couldn't hack it on 4+ hour rides. It now has a Brooks on it and I am happy. Hopefully I can one day afford that white Stussy Brooks Swift to round out the color scheme but for now it's good enough.

    Hi singlespeeders,
    I just finished my new sisp and want to show you some pictures. I'm from germany and this is my fourth ss so far. This time I wanted a relaxed riding prosition like my wifes felt cruiser. The frame is a MAXX T-Bone from the 90s with a surly instigator fork. Frontwheel is an inferno magnesium (shure it is) and the back is a shimano-wheel from the end-90s (not very successful I guess). I hope you like it ...
    Comments are welcome.

    TripleT, I look forward to seeing it in person. The CB wheels look great. Got a weight on it? I'm guessing sub 20.

    Hey Coach. Taking her to Boyette on Sunday if you want to see her in person.

    It came in at 20lbs. 12oz. That's due to the longer travel fork with the 15QR and the Fifteen G cranks and BB.

    a quick calc from here > http://www.eehouse.org/fixin/formfmu.php and a check of your chainstay length (424mm) seems to indicate that a 36:18 would work as a magic gear for your bike with a new chain.

    Ok, if you're looking for a similar gearing that will work without a tensioner, the best I could find is 35:19. Gear inches for this ratio is ~47.2, compared to your current 45.6, and 32:16 gear inches is ~51.3. I do suggest that if you decide to do it this way (35:19) that you at least get a single speed specific rear cog to do the job, otherwise chainline and tension become much more critical. 36:20 would also work (gear inches ~46.1) but you'd need a half link.

I do suggest that if you decide to do it this way (35:19) that you at least get a single speed specific rear cog to do the job, otherwise chainline and tension become much more critical. 36:20 would also work (gear inches ~46.1) but you'd need a half link.

    Bought on eBay for a great price. Hardly ridden, apparently, if the lack of wear on the chainring, cog & tires are any indication. My first 29er & second SSer (& last). My first 'real' bike was a SSer road bike back in the late 60's, early 70's. I actually took that one off-road, off-road. There were no trails. Wasn't very practical though. I bought the bike so I could convert it to an IGH (Internally Geared Hub) but did give SS'ing a second chance, putting ~300 miles on it before calling it quits. Started out with the stock 33/18, then tried 32/16, 32/14 &, finally 32/12 before giving up. So can't say I didn't try. I'll leave the SS'ing to others. Anyvey ... here's the bike in it's original form -- '05 GF Rig 29er SS:

    $472.50

    With RS Reba SL & Avid BB7's.

    And like new, basically. Aside from some scratches & a small gouge (bigger scratch) at the midpoint of the toptube.

    But Rigs have a reputation of breaking at the ST/TT or ST/DT junctures.

    I've made sure there's plenty of post in the ST. Enough, that it extends well below the TT so I'm hoping that will eliminate the ST/TT failure but I'm guessing that the stress may just be transferred to the ST/DT juncture & that the failure will occur there instead. Oh well ... I'll just ride until it breaks.

    There are definitely some beautiful bikes in this thread.

    My two babies...

    1996 Kona Kilauea. Was my first race bike (bought it in 97)...it's been through a bunch of conversions, finally after years of just collecting dust, I built it into a 42 x 18 ss with some spare old-school parts I had laying around...Spinergys, Grafton CNC cranks, Barracuda seat, Cane Creek V-brakes and some fork I got for free at a bike shop.

    Custom 853 steel ProCraft. Handbuilt here in lovely New Lenox, IL. Bike was originally conceived and built like a YBB...but the steel flexing didn't work very well and broke twice. So...I bought a titanium hardtail, and had horizontal dropouts and a black paintjob put on this one. I love this bike so much its not funny. Just bought a Racer X this year, but probably put more miles on the ss! Gearing is 36 x 16..perfect for the local trails.

    The disc brakes were added by me, the bike came with Tektro V brakes. It's a good deal for $399. I had the disc brakes already, so it sealed the deal for me. Plus, SE is well known in the BMX world, so I figured it was a good gamble. The intial neighborhood ride was pretty nice (wet), but tomorrow I hit the trails.

    I dont want an aluminum bike!! besides the review on MTBR for that thing have convinced me not to get it. SE's frame is Cro Mo so Im not at the risk of dying when the aluminum tubing breaks on the outcast.

    its called an outcast for a reason

    you should consider the "OUTCAST" because it is $350, free shipping, i think disc break tabs im not sure, flip flp hub, fixed gear cog, and 32 tooth chainring, AND sliding dropouts, all in all this makes the OUTCAST!!!! A VERY good bike for the money

    thats a no on the disc on the old oucast, the new one has a rockshox fork and disc brakes.

    ive heard that the hubs really suck and the axle slips on the drops. on a hard impact the frame will crak and brake unlike steel. good for the money for most that dont really go mountain biking

    They are Nano Raptors. Not the best tire, but I'll ride them until there are issues, then put something better on.

    I'd be inclined to ask the exact opposite question. Why would you think that slicks would be the preferred choice for mountain bikers?

    You mean like an ATB that does street, dirt paths, light offroad? There is some merit to that. The thing about SS mountain bikes is that its hard to find a gearing that will work well for serious road riding AND serious trail riding.

    For instance, I made an urban SS experiment with 44 tooth in front (a geared mountain bike big ring) and 16 in the back. I ran semi-slicks 1.75". A little bit of tread so I could handle gravel and such.

    It was a fun around town bike but in no way would those skinny tires and big gearing make it on any real singletrack.

    Thank you and good spot

    Well if Dan (ISAR) would pull his finger out and make me my nice 2 piece gold Ali and Stainless cog and gold chainring then she would be truly complete

    I am not 100% happy with the gun grey centers of the rotors but I bought them more out of weight consideration, I might sacrifice 16g and get the non pro ones in black or gold, I also keep looking at the sicklines Oro leavers in Orange (looks more like gold to me than thier gold colour) but that might be a bit too much acenting

    ow yeah, SS is fun. I just did my first ride this weekend and I love it.

    I get myself an SS kit and chain tension device and installed it on my old bike.

    1999 K2 Zed X frankenbike

    Stock LX cranks and hubs, Blackspire ring, Sette tensioner, steel cog, Surly 1X1 fork. Running 32-18, too hilly and I'm too weak (at this point) for anything harder. Weighs in at 23.1 lbs, Could probably get down to 20lbs if I went weight weenie on it but I'm happy with it this way for now. It's actually silver but the bright sunlight almost makes it look white.

    SS v2.1

    06 Jamis frame on king hubs w/ mavic rims. Had to keep my Ionic machined cranks just because they are just about the coolest looking cranks I have seen. Built this while nursing a collar bone back to life. Loving this version.

    It looks like it says Univega instead of Raleigh.........probably all within the same parent company or the like.

    The Avanti 29er frames/bikes are also XXIX clones.

    I rode my brothers Bianchi SS and felt that I needed to convert my bike as well.




    I feel like I'm back on my old BMX bikes.

    do you guys think that derailleurs have the same amount of friction as one of those alfine or yess tensioners

    I would think it depends on the derailleur in question. If it's a Shitmano tourney vs a yess tensioner, then the tensioner would probably have less friction. But if we're talking about like a Shitmano XTR vs the yess tensioner, then it may be a toss up. It depends on the pulleys and bearings used in the derailleur I guess.

    Are you wondering about friction as in drivetrain friction, or tension on the chain? I can only comment on the single cog pull tensioner in that regard. While it was extremely quiet, it allowed the chain to pull off the rear cog under high pedal pressure. I'd prefer a tensioner over my xt derailleur, but it's all I had to keep me riding

    Off-the-shelf KM with a few small tweaks. Fit / handling feels pretty dialed-in, a lot of fun on mellow single track.

    Well, I haven't ridden it at all before or after the Lefty so I can't attest to any change in geometry. Unfortunately winter has pretty much started here in Utah...I might be able to get a ride in tomorrow if the trails are ok.

    new soma juice 29r. been riding fixed / ss.
    working out the gearing. saving some $$ for a white dos eno.

    transplanted parts from a surly crosscheck... just rebuilt the front wheel for disc.
    hand me down tires, but they can work on the sand and maybe in the snow.
    just added some bar ends, not sure how i like em on the soma odin bars.
    have a brooks swallow or b17 that i might migrate over... the wtb is working - but i'm used to leather on my rando / brevet road machine.

    first mtb since my yeti fro back in 2003 or so.
    loved the crosscheck that i ran fixed - but wanted to get back in the woods and do some bikepacking.

    those are the stock BB5s in mountain bike mode it has haye hfx 9s..I have since actually paid (those were given to me by my favorite shop) and got some cane creek scr-5 levers which are far more comfortable and 46cm bars and a bit longer stem. I will pick up the new wheels tomorrow re-laced to Hone hubs w/Hone der and will run 1x9 for the winter then in the spring back to MTB mode and SS..this is the reason I bought this bike so I could have 2 bikes in one less space less cost and less drama and a happier wife..

    so the mt bb7 will work with road levers? i have some scr-5s and some soma levers from my old cross check build... running V on back but can swap to canti, bb7 disc up front. and i have a salsa bell lap to swap to... hmm.

    I personally wouldn't go through all that drama. I dont think mechanical disc brakes work and better than good V's and only marginally better tha good canti's..I prefer the clean look of disc and honestly probally wouldn't buy a frame that was not disc or disc w/studs.. but if my frame had them I also wouldn't go out of my way to put disc on especially a split system..just alot of work with little benefit in my opinion.

    its the soma pictured a few posts back. running flip flop fixed / ss right now, so v-brake on the back until i chew through the rim - and then i'll decide on ss or fg for it and build up a disc wheel.

    so, i can easily swap bars without changing things. i can just swap out my v for a canti, runn it all the time, as i'm running rim back there anyway. but front is disc...

    first ride on the bike above. night ride on my training trail. I had to stop a couple of times after steep climbs. The hardest climb, i came off with about 15 yards to go. this is gonna make me stronger. i love it, and I am all in on the single speed.

    Looks like one of 'dem fancy Jhooks from Home Depot-- er, I mean, special-order bicycle-specific seat-hanging hooks. I sell to you for just $49.95.

    Rebuilt the old Monocog this week...

    Had it for years,bought it used for a C-note (frame,fork,wheelset,extra hubs,SP stem/bars). Over that time,it's been posted up in either this thread or the other one like it as a rigid mtn bike,commuter,Fox Fork'd mtn bike,roadie,Marzocchi fork'd mtn bike,and now a roadie/errand runner bike.

    From this morning's sub-freezing ride to run a few errands (twas 31 degrees F...I had enough sense to throw my flannel jacket on over my t-shirt,but not enough to change outta me "house shorts",AKA boxxers). 32x18 (till I find my 16t that I put somewhere),Nashbar front rack,Wallymart bar bag (Bell-I liked the vintage leather look,and it was only 20 bucks ),and scrawney tires.

    Finally finished the SS. Recap the build: Soul Cycles Dillinger, pearl green, 20" frame, it was a discounted blem (frame was just under 5 lbs. w/EBB). White Brothers Fluid 110 (have had this fork on two other bikes). Mavic C-29 wheels (also had them for a while), last on the RIP. Formula K-18's, last on the RIP. Stylo cranks, from RIP. Ergon GX1 grips (New, I like these a lot). KMC green chain. Surly spacer kit and cog (20T). Thomson stem and seatpost (new). Salsa QR's, and seatpost QR. Chris King headset (used). WTB Pure Team (old). Maxxis Aspen tires (new, just recently released) I think these are going to be a GREAT dry conditions tire. Platforms are only for the 'hood.

    My Felt SS

    Not new, but this is my first post. It's pretty much stock from the factory except for the hubs.
    Bike: Felt 2007 single speed 29er
    Fork: Reba Rockshox SL
    Hubs: The Hive Chub Hub SS
    Crank: TruActive something
    Current Ratio: 32-17

    It looks pretty good for having about 1,500 hard trail miles on it. More pics here:

    Here's my build. Finally got to borrow a camera from someone .
    Built it up from frame up a few months ago. Running 32x18 gearing, perfect for my local trail-riding. Hope you guys like it as much as I do.

    Rainier Conversion

    I have had this bike setup many times as a XC racer, as well as a bike to pull the rugrat with, but now I think it is in my favorite arrangement. I just slapped on the silver Thomson stem and spacers and Juicy 7's. It'll be fun to ride a single speed on some trails around here to see if I'm man enough to handle the long climbs.

    I'm running 32x15 for commuting, thinking about a 17 tooth for trails and a 13 or 11 tooth for short track since my full squish XC bike accelerates a bit slower on our tight short track courses. Any thoughts?

    Ferrous

    My new to me Fisher Ferrouse, I think they made it out of cast iron instead of cromo because the small frame weighs 5lb 5 oz, overall weight is a dissapointing 23 3/4 lbs but I'll trim it down a bit at a time.

    close up on the newly installed tensioner
    The &quot;New&quot; Post Your Singlespeed!-1123091435a.jpg
    my horrible chain line. due to the tensioner and spacers not being perfectly compatable. but it still rides smooth.
    The &quot;New&quot; Post Your Singlespeed!-1123091512.jpg
    a full shot of the bike. its a dh bike!

    another angle.
    The &quot;New&quot; Post Your Singlespeed!-1123091435.jpg
    the tensioner has AMAZING tension. its tight as it can be. i could bearly pull the arm when it was of...ill never drop a chain. (i hope. haha)

    the tensioner is the shimano alfine. the spacer kit is the gusset single speed kit. i did this all for $57 with 2 day air from jensonUSA. now i just need a dry day to make sure its good.

    im running a 36-16 ratio. i dont know if thats a harder ratio, but it works good on decent hills (when im in more of an all mountain feel) but doesnt spin out at good speed.

    the bike came in at 41lbs before the conversion on my bathroom scale. based on what other people say i think im around 39lbs. not too shabby for dh bike.

    Sette Reken frame 16"
    Pretty much stock stuff from a 07 Rockhopper.

    I just added:
    Shimano m525 pedals
    Salsa 32t SS ring with bguard
    Avid SD7 brake levers
    Shimano SIS rear derailleur modified as a tensioner
    PC-1 SS chain

    next is: SS cog w/ a "real" tensioner, crank arms and maybe rigid fork.

    that fisher and schwinn-holy small frame!

    heres what i did some work on the other day.
    before:
    <a href="https://s72.photobucket.com/albums/i192/brianjamesitzaina/one%20way%20or%20another/?action=view&current=1-2.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="https://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i192/brianjamesitzaina/one%20way%20or%20another/1-2.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>
    after:
    <a href="https://s72.photobucket.com/albums/i192/brianjamesitzaina/?action=view&current=IMG_2062.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="https://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i192/brianjamesitzaina/IMG_2062.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

    next thing towards the build is i am gettin my xtr M952 crank arms polished and have a 32t spiderless chainwheel from home brewed components in the works as of today(also polished)
    heres the design i went with.
    https://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...x/DSCN0641.jpg
    after that ill be purchasing a WI Eno freewheel whenever i decide what ratio im going with.
    once i get all this on ill definatly be hittin the dirt more often. i planned a cruise around the lake today but just went around town and ended up going to the skatepark.
