    Feeling the drag with my new tire setup. Been running 2.3 DHR II and Minion SS for 3 years.

    Decided to try a 2.4 DHR II WT and a 2.5 DHF up front. Crazy traction but hell did the sap me out.

    Speaking of being sapped out, weíve been encountering crazy heat in the PH and this kept the reservoir dam dcracked and dry

    My weak ass struggled with the new boat anchors⚓️⚓️



    Place should have been full of water as far as the eye can see. Back then you can touch and reach for the water from the view deck

    Went for a ride with my friend. I was pretty worried that I would hold him up since he was running geared.

    I had no idea that I would be able to place such a big gap ahead of him and had him gasping for air.

    I guess SS does make you

    Did a 14 miler after work yesterday. Fast and flowy trail system with minimal steepies. Encountered a young couple (20s) both riding enduro spec bikes during a water fill up break. Guy asked "Rigid single speed: what's that like to ride?" I simply said, A bike, it's not that hard or tough. They looked at me as if I was nuts... Priceless, lol.

    20% average...several spots 30%+ and even hit 40%+. Needless to say...used my walking gear for most of it going up and burned up my brakes coming down.

    El Prieto on my Seven/ENVE rigid SS rig

    This trail ( El P) is in my backyard and not that hard to get to. Just a short climb up to the saddle(halfway) of Brown Mtn. Then itís a fast fairly straight decent to the entrance. Lots and lots of switch backs, rocky exposure sections and a few fast technical climbers with a few jumps and drops. I have done this trail 3x in a row before, itís worth repeating. With my fat 29x2.6Ē tire set up I run 32x22 or 20 gearing. Itís steep on parts of the incline but not back breaking endless grinds. The pay off is totally worth it and the climb to the top of Brown gives you a nice long descent to El P or an option of riding the KEN Burton trail.
    I value this trail as much as I value my So Cal weather. It gets loose but meaty tires will handle it.

    Been off the SS for a while due to training on my geared bikes, and getting a new Yeti SB100, which Iíve been having fun riding. But dusted the Pivot LES off for a 40+ mile ride in the heat of Arizona yesterday. Location is Brownís Ranch, in North Scottsdale.

    Not a mountain bike, but pretty pumped that I could turn my Tarmac SL6 disc bike into a SS without a tensioner or EBB. Currently 48/18, but also fits 46/16.

    Let's stick to knobby tired bikes.

    Just reassembled my SS. Decided to go with a clear coat finish after a little frame repair. Turned out pretty good.

    Itís hot as hell in Phoenix, so a buddy and I headed up to 8000í ft where itís 80* in Pinetop, AZ.

    38mi of riding, 2500í of climbing, which was basically 15 miles of climbing, and 20 miles of downhill. Not crazy elevation or climbing numbers, but it matters more when you live at 1200í ft.

    Cyclocross Nationals down here in Aus last weekend. It was cold and wet and awesome. At least with the singlespeed my complete lack of skills in the mud did not result in a broken mech. I was a bit overgeared though and lost traction on all the pinch climbs in the mud. #didntcomelast

    Loving my Funk La Ruta. Suspension makes these long rides much more enjoyable and fun, while the dual lockout allows climbing out of the saddle just like a rigid bike.

    I've been putting a lot of miles on the SS now that it's back in action finally. My SS muscles are coming back.

    Lots of fun. I'm really enjoying the simplicity again after spending a lot of time on a full squish bike this season. No more levers and switches. No more operating the bike. Just riding. Kinda nice.

    I have the suspension fork on there from a recent race, and have another one coming up so it will stay for now. I generally prefer the rigid fork though.

    What I really miss is my dropper. My right thumb never stabs for the gear shifter that isn't there, but my left thumb goes for the dropper remote about 50 times per ride. Not this year but I may cave next spring and throw a dropper on here. maybe.

    Just wrapped up an 8 day, 1300km gravel tour around Belarus. It was the second part of my quest to create a full loop of the country on gravel, dirt and forest roads. Went with a pretty minimal gear setup because accommodation is pretty cheap and Iím not a huge fan of camping. Had one bivy night by a lake.

    Even though there arenít any mountains here, Belarus is chocked full of forests, lakes and large marsh areas. And endless gravel roads through small villages.

    The Vassago fisticuff is perfectly suited for this stuff, but the gearing was a little too ambitious at 42-18 for the longer days. Many more pics @John__McT on insta if you're into that.

    I remember some barriers feeling weird, but it never crossed my mind that it was foot placement.

    32/18 was a little too much for the last few laps.
    Unless you got the bumpy sheep paddock climbs just right, you were walking.
    My usual 32/20 would have been better and possibly faster overall...

    Back at it with my first ever Brevet. The local Randonneuring (sp?) club has just a few mixed terrain (50/50 mix dirt,gravel/asphalt) 200km brevets every year. After the tour, I figured now is about as good as my legs and ass will get for this kinda thing. It was really fun! Now, the distance is not the main challenge for me anymore. So I move on to mental calculations of prospective finish times. I made a point to cut down on stopped time, under 30 minutes for the whole ride, which is a big change of pace from long touring days.

    The funniest thing was, almost everyone else (only 9 people) were on geared mtbs. They would just ride away from me on the paved bits, but then I would reel them back in on the rougher dirt roads, especially the hilly sections. I kinda expected it to be the opposite, but I just don't feel as motivated to put power down on paved roads, I tend to just cruise along...

    Anyway, pics:

    Finally got out for a big ride on the SS yesterday. Rode from home to the ride, met some friends, then continued on my own at the end. Ended up doing a bit more gravel and flat stuff than I prefer, but mostly it was high quality singletrack.

    60 miles, 6+ hours, 5,235ft of climbing.

    It's my biggest ride of the year on the SS, so far, I just got it built back up about a month ago. Definitely going to be spending the majority of my time on this for the remainder of the year.

    I still have the suspension fork on there from a chunky race I did last month. I have to say I don't hate it. It makes the chunky days and long days a bit less punishing. Plus front end traction is greatly improved. But, it is a little heavier and less efficient climbing, which is really where the bike excels. Tradeoffs.

    I do miss my dropper posts though. I've been tempted to throw one on here, but it's a slippery slope.

    I recently converted my 1x10 CF 650b hardtail to single speed. Running 34x18 and loving it. I'm waiting on a new tensioner. I prefer this bike to my FS now.

    Some excellent fall riding recently. Loving the cool weather, excellent trail conditions, and great scenery of late. Oh yeah, and the bikes pretty cool too. (sorry, no great pics recently)

    Thanks! This is a fairly unique 27+ fork from 2017 that also happens to fit 29x3 tires, so I'm able to run it at 120mm with just 525mm axle-to-crown, and 130mm with 535mm a2c.

    It's currently set up for 120mm, but I may swap in the 130mm airshafts soon. Either way, it's pretty wicked with all that travel!

    18+ Sunday Sedona singletrack singlespeed miles: Girdner -> Rupp -> Cockscomb -> Aerie -> Deadmans -> Mescal -> Canyon of Fools -> Dawa -> Cockscomb -> Outer Limits

    Don't care who you are, or how HTFU you might be feeling when you head out, singlespeeding in Sedona is always a kickass kick-in-the-ass!

    Did this ride on my kickass Coconino along with a couple good friends who also rode their kickass singlespeeds.

    After the ride (10 PB's on 14 segments - How the hell did that happen?) I thought I'd try getting rid of the high pitched creak at the bottom of the right pedal power stroke.
    Stripped and cleaned the XT Trail's and reassembled with copper slip on the crank arm threads and face.
    Also copper slipped the chainring bolts and mating surfaces.
    Yet to see if it worked...

    No noises today
    40km, 1100m and 2:20hr into a ride, 4km from home and you meet your brother on his single speed heading out for a ride.
    Be rude not to join him really.

    Both single speeders, both like longer rides, live within 5km of each other.
    Both like riding solo.
    This is the 3rd time we've ridden together.
    He's 49 and I'm 51.

    Thatís a lot of SS Kilometers (miles)! As for the Shimano pedals, I have found that mine are only good for 1 rebuild, after that they develop play.

    I normally do the pedals (2xXT Trail, 2xXTR Race) once a year.

    This was my favorite SS ride so far.
    95.49km, 6:35hr, 2,277m. (32/22 gearing) About 5km of asphalt.

    My pedals (XT and XTR trail) M785 and M985 had seen there better days. Maybe Iíll attempt another rebuild but I bought the M8020ís on sale.
    I seriously cannot imagine going 6hours on my SS, my longest ride is 3 hours. But I do love the trails on my SS and ride it more often than my other bikes.

    First ride on my Single speed "gravel" bike on a mix of greenway, gravel and light singletrack. It is built out of an old 91 Schwinn High Plains frame and a mix of parts I had laying around, cheap new parts and cheap used parts. Need to make some adjustments still (couldn't quite get the chain as tight as I would want with this gearing combo and tensioner and the seat tube has a burr which I think is messing with the tightening of seat post.)



    Why is the uploader on this site such a piece of shit?

    Nice! Those kind of bikes are fun because you don't worry too much about them, from a financial perspective. I had a 80's Schwinn Super Le Tour that I converted to a flat bar single speed/fixie. Great option for commuting.

    My singlespeed doesnít really follow the traditional recipe other than being steel and a 29er. Itís the fastest bike I own in almost all my local trails other than the odd rough section, up or down. Yesterday I was riding it like my full squish enduro bike and paid the price with a walk out after a nice manual off of a small shelf. Not sure what I hit, but that was the worst run strike Iíve had on a properly inflated tire.



    Luckily the rim is fine and I was able to repair the tire at home.

    New Years day ride.

    Unseasonably warm here which means the trails are mush after the snow melt, this is when I break out the SS cross bike and pound pavement (mostly back roads). A loop around the bay offers steep climbs and great views. It was ~30 degrees in the morning when I started, topping out at 34. Bike is an All City Nature Boy 853.

    3hrs, 2,700ft, 36 miles. Good day.

    First time out on the MTB this year. Kind of crazy it's already almost March. Not gonna lie, it hurt afterwards and it wasn't even that long of a ride. LOL. Oh, first time out with the belt drive too. It's amazingly quiet!

    put in about 27 SSolo miles of road and singletrack on my Crusade yesterday evening. We have some lovely crushed granite walking paths all around, a dedicated bicycle Veloway, roads with bike lanes, and some relatively mellow singletrack that allow me to ride a skinny tire bike 30+ miles from my neighborhood. lots more if I take the MTB. the CX bike is much faster on everything except anything rocky. 42x17 on a 35mm rear tire.

    this is still working for me, but I have a long-term plan to buy a different bike or frame some time just so I can run a larger rear tire or at least have room for mud. I ride this bike the most when the trails are muddy, so I avoid the trails but still manage taking it off-road in muddy spots where the mud immediately clogs up the chainstays.

    2019 ended up with too much of my time riding gravel on my cutthroat. Itís a great bike but was feeling bored so late in season I picked up a nice old Salsa Selma. Only have a couple of rides on her so far, but looking forward to getting out again as soon as the trails dry out. Should be a fun bike.

    Social distance ride

    I rode to a trail that is normally pretty vacant. Today I saw a few riders but still kept my social distance

    Sunk in a ride during a work from home day. Much shorter than I wanted to go, but I started feeling guilty leaving the wife at home with the wild children. Felt good to get on dirt for the first time this year though!

    It has been dry enough that I was fortunate enough to get to ride trails 3 days in a row. It also has been warm enough that I ran into this dude on the trail.

    No pics, but had a great ride tonight. Hero dirt everywhere. I love shredding trails on my hardtails. Throwing the bike around, popping off anything and everything. Smashing hills. Thrashing my legs. More speed!!

    Like I said, good ride.

    Stop asking how much it weighs and just go ride it.
