    Sickest singlespeed ever

    This guy built a ss for his girlfriend's birthday. He's a mechanical engineer by trade, and machined many parts himself.

    HOLY CRAP.

    I thought it was "neat" until i followed the link to find out the fork and rack are made of aerospace Ti (!)

    i have half a mind to email this guy and see if he'd build a single crown version of that fork...

    Very Talented man.... very lucky girl friend....

    It is nice to see a talented person who uses his or hers' creative mind. Nice hubs and even the rack is killer.

    It humbles me to think how plain my thought process is and how one directional my focus is most of the time.

    Long live free thinking minds.....

    HOLY SCHNIKEES!! THIS GUY IS GOOD...
    Makes me wish I had paid attention in shop class instead of, well, doing what I was doing. I want to hang with this guy.

    Woah..

    I'm amazed, he was able to adapt those old Skyway Tuff II wheels to disc brakes. I used to own a pair of black ones (20") on my pink Hutch Trickstar. Black and pink are a rockin' combo.

    Hot-looking yes, but

    it's double the weight of Francis' retrotech. Ouch.

    Hot looking though...

    I'd say that's a boulevard cruiser, not a XC SS.

    Agreed, hot looking though.

    What a loser

    the guy can't even weld

    That's pretty damn impressive. Imagine what it will be like when he marries the chick and Junior wants a tricycle. Can't wait to see what he comes up with.

    I would like tripplecrown Ti forks like that. X-lite in uk used to make dual crown forks like that together with their Ti frame.
