    Surly 1x1=11 Silly Build

    Alright guys, i have an entirely stock except for some tioga spider pedals 1x1=11 from surly. I'm not really stuck on keeping anything or getting rid of everything, i just think there's alot of (bling) potential for this bike.



    Just give any recomendations on things you would do if this we're your bike.

    I'd replace the seat. Just because I know what kind of seats I like, and that is not it. The seat post might have to go too, depending on funds...

    Some colored brake cables?

    26" speedway Uma rims, 50mm width,. 2.7" tires, Alfine 11 speed hub, Brooks B-17, homemade frame pack and pogies..... or just get a Fatback
    I'd ride it stock some just to see what fat slicks can do, or turn it into an off road fixie

    i do like you guy's ideas. And i really like the idea of colored cables, i think im going to do that next week. I already was toying with the idea of new wheels but those 24x3.2 are so damn fun. I think next is to get a more street friendly gearing because currently its geared for offroad and those wheels and tires quite frankly dont allow it.

    I almost bought one of those. I'd turn into a 26" or 650b bike. It certainly might be an absolute beast for fixed gear. Is this just some lonely bike that you happened to have extra?

    ... and if we just ... Got one. Here's what I do...

    I have the very same bike. Bought it on impulse when they were clearing them out for ~$700. I replaced the Hoggy G street tires with Arrow Wide Bites and occasionally ride the local trails for a masochistic workout (and for the WTF?! effect that it causes among other trail users). Those Wide Bite tires are beasts: On the shipping scale at work the pair weighs in at around 7 pounds. Tires only.

    I snagged a 26" wheelset (WTB Laserdisc XC, single-duty) off ebay and I ride the 1x1 with that most of the time. I found that the single-duty freewheel will accommodate two cogs, so in conjunction with the double chainrings up front I have 33:18 for the trail and 35:16 for pavement.
