    loving the idea of them, still not loving change. ive ridden them a few times now and still have trouble remembering how clipping in is so different. im going to keep them going for a while even though all my eggbeaters are back from warrenty.

    Old school 26'er, Ted Wojcik custom steel. Originally built circa 1999; had Wojcik remove vertical drops and weld on horizontal. Original v-brake front fork swapped for Exotic carbon with disc tabs and front disc brake, 2008. Stylo 1:1 added 2009. "Semi" ghetto tubeless added 2009 (gorilla tape, no rim strip, sealant, and UST tires).

    Ri Ti SS

    Not great pix, and posted a few times but I'll play along.

    '91 CBO/Litespeed ti frame with a Spicer ti rigid fork, ENO eccentric hub & freewheel and a smattering of Race Face & Syncros NOS parts. A King cage and SI TransAm Flite saddle round out the ti bits.

    Litespeed Part Deaux

    I just finished my build on first SS. It was a great chance to give my old Litespeed a second life. It turned out great, just wish I could get rid of the chain tensioner without droping a load of cash! Here is my first SS, I can't believe how much fun I am having on this thing!

    That Litespeed is a nice bike and looks like a lot of fun, but it's not rigid.

    ... and if we just ... Just finished project. My first single speed.

    After a few nights of Fat Tires and working on this I am finally finished. I bought this Trek off Craigslist for $25 and added some stuff to it.
    Now it is what I wanted and ready to ride. Let me know what you think. It's my first single speed conversion.

    Specs:

    1996 Trek 820 17" Frame
    Chromoly main tubes

    Trek fork - Chromoly

    Shimano Deore DX cranks

    ODYSSEY Jim Cielencki bmx pedals

    Specialized Fuse bmx stem

    1" threaded to 1 1/8" threadless stem adapter

    Redline cruiser bars 5.5" rise and 27.5" width

    Redline grips

    Tektro FX2 brake lever with Shimano cantilever brakes.

    I build the chain tensioner myself with some parts from the grab bins at the hardware store.
    I got a lot of ideas from the forums here and am very happy that I only spent like $10 and got something more sturdy than the $25 ones I see available.

    I'm running 39 x 18 gearing and it seems like what I will stick with.

    Here are mine











    The pictures are old and a lot of stuff on the Ti SS has changed and it now weighs 14lbs 4oz. I need to shoot some new pictures because my Panther and my Slingshot SS are different now.

    Nice.

    The cranks on the Ti SS appear to be Sweet Wings. A company ahead of its time. Are you still using them?
    Old enough to know better. And old enough not to care. Best age to be.

    dwt, yeah the cranks are Sweetwings and I've got 3 sets, one on my Ti SS, one on my Slingshot SS and one waiting to go on my Niner Air 9 Carbon. The set for my new ride come in at 522g with cranks, BB, ring and bolts. Way ahead of their time, which was 1995.

    i just put platform pedals on my moots to cruise around town yesterday.
    yours looks really nice but i would suggest a forward components ebb to ditch that ugly tensioner.

    Here's mine - '97 RM Hammer. Improved with Kona P2 fork (much better than the RS Indy XC elastomer job it came with) and an ENO rear hub. Otherwise, a pretty fun, low budget build on a reliable old bike!

    Sweet. I just bought one exactly like that from my LBS the other day. It's a left over model from a couple of years ago.

    I just realized this only makes sense for people with a threaded forum view.

    91' Rockhopper. Just SS'd it. 34x16 gearing. Weighs 24 lbs. Had fun riding it around town tonight, and can't wait to get it to the trails this week.

    Some changes since I last posted this bike in another thread a while ago.
    Due to serious slipped disc problems for two years I had to find a more comfortable riding position. Turns out I needed to trow away the Mary bar and the Thomson with setback... So in are a carbon Easton riser and a ti seatpost with zero setback.

    I did order a new crank per suggestion of someone on this forum.

    Well, that is what mine used to look like (minus the seat).

    Here it is now, well, the sticker is off the down tube anyway and it will either have the Nevegals back on it or a set of Mtn. King tires this after noon. XT hydro discs in the mail and will probably be here tomorrow. Also waiting on my XTR crank from Crazy8.

    Built this up from an old frame on CL, original parts from my 03 Wahoo, and a few new components. Rode it for a week, loved it, then gave it to my kid sis as a b-day present (minus the saddle) because she doesn't have a bike. I miss it already

    I really like the gray GTs. They look hot. I've eyed them a bit- maybe they fit a 650b in the back on a good day.

    Hi guys, I am new here. I love SS so much.

    My SS bike



    front
    crank
    cog

    22Tx18T 170mm with 26x1.5 superslick. I ride 16" folding bike 36Tx28T before which is for cadence, but now since my folding have problems I decided to ride 26".
    I am planning to get another SS with 2:1 gear ratio but still faraway dream since I am tight on budget.

    Schwinn S95 SS

    Just finished - except for the Surly Singleator on order. Current Origin8 chain tensioner only works in pull down, and occasionally it skips. Also wishing I had left off the stripes on the paint, as the black base coat with Duplicolor Clear Effex over it turned out pretty neat.

    It's a hodgepodge of parts, from the parts bin and eBay. Frame is from my first real mountain bike (not counting the 45 lb Gary Fisher from 1993). Lots of fun to ride.

    I've had my eye on that frame (and Soma bikes in general) for a while. Can you comment on the frame handling and response?

    Sorry I'm pretty useless for giving opinions All I ever had in mountain bikes was a Kona Stuff which weights 35lbs and I used to putt-putt and sometimes slam-smash at the Colonnade park. After trying to use it for trail riding for a little I got an itch to get something more trail-friendly. This thing is about 10lbs lighter and rolls with probably half the effort, so to me it feels like I'm flying now Also coming from a very burly aluminum frame, this one feels like it has suspension. Helps that I'm around $300 into it collecting used parts from eBay and CL. I'm only 145lbs so I don't need a super burly bike. 29'er fork seems to be just the right height, sligly higher than what a 80mm suspension fork would yield which I like for still being able to handle some jumps and downhill. I'm very much a beginner though so YMMV.

    Oh yea, I'd very much prefer the rear wheel setup on Konas since the wheel drops down but you can still adjust the chain. On this bike you have to slacken the bolts on rear caliper to be able to pull the rear wheel out, and I'm still struggling with quck-release not being able to hold the wheel well. Picking a solid axle capable rear hub would be good.

    Here's my effin C.u.S.S.

    I'm going to swap the fork for one w less rake and A to C, otherwise it's perfect. Definitely not a beauty queen though.

    This is my newly converted Ti frame SS rigid. Its an older frame but I really like riding it as it fits me just ride. I just wanted to make it simpler with taking the gears off. Finally found the correct cog that does not require the tensioner. Want to put a EBB on it and currently researching how I need to do that. I want to lighten it up more by getting carbon bars, better rims and a few other things. I wanted to go disc brake as I have a full suspension that has them on it and I love the way they stop quickly. I added the brake adapter to it due to not having disc tabs on the frame. Its an older frame so I don't think disc's were even thought of. Anyways, I'm open to comments and suggestions.

    I think what I like most about the rigid SS thing is that the guys(girls) that ride them tend to not whine about what their bike cannot do. Here is my '97 Rockhopper. Under 25lbs for under $300.

    Bonking ... not feelin' well

    Is that a fixie or do you just ride without brakes?

    It is equipped with an old Torpedo coaster brake. My plan is (was?) to put a
    Cannondale Bad Boy rigid lefty fork with disk brake on it but i can`t find one

    base bars work great offroad, kind of like riding permanently on your bar-ends. hard to find the right width though... roadie versions are usually narrow.

    I have taken it off road and it works OK but as "byknuts" said they can be a bit narrow
    for off road use. I would like to have an extra 5-7 cm so I`m planning on putting flat bars on it.

    I've been wondering to use BMX stem on my MTB is it okay?

    I mean it's look sturdy although I don't do extreme riding just some light XC but just wanna sure that it's safe. CMIIW does DJ stem is the same with BMX?

    My current frame is kinda too big for me so I choose shorter stem for better handling. I am planning to get the one that use for DJ.

    bmx uses 22.2 bars, mtb is either 25.4 or 31.8 oversize.

    I use this for temporary till I can get the proper one. Just feels great handling so far, although I am not sure if this safe or not. I should get DH stem instead I think.

    The one I use is till have gap even if I use 22.2 handlebars, I think this is the one that have gap type.

    Oops. It's got an On One fork on there now, though.

    Not quite right, either, but she's taken me on some nice singletracks on "fat" 38's:

    Finally I am getting this stem, Folker - which is cheap. 50mm 10 degree rise I put reversed.

    It said for DH/Freeride with 2.54 bar, so I don't need to change my handlebars although I am still curious with KORE B1B which is 0 degree and more expensive with 31.8 bar.

    I've just realized that the stem stack height is 50mm which is. That's why I don't need any spacers or cut the stem adapter to match the height.

    I love that straight fork.

    I've just bought one it's called gorilla bar sumthing and made in taiwan I guess but I don't know about the strength or quality though.

    My Freak Bike

    This is the best MTBR thread I've seen in years. I've been testing the 29er front wheel and though it looks freaky it rides very well and may stay on for a while.

    Starting to think I may have built it up funny. Perhaps a setback seat post and the fork that came with my 1X1 would fix things.

    32x20 is magic ratio?

    Cool, perhaps I can do this to my frame with vertical DO.

    The magic ratio will still be frame dependent on maker, model, and size, despite being a 26" frame. Chances are it won't be the same.
