    What a way for me to start the morning!!!
    I wake up over here in Oz and find that you have made a singlespeed out of the bike that I have often lusted after.
    Pinch me someone!!! Am I still asleep????
    Verrrrrrrrrrry nice, Donkey.
    I am jealous of yet another SS'er.


    Patience TR, Patience. You will have an SS soon Only a few more months and you will be over there and can look seriously.

    Eye-catching color combo!

    Good lookin' out!

    that has got to be a sweet riding machine. did you play around with gearing until you found the right combo to avoid the need for a tensioner?
    is the fork fairly supple? I had been running my BuSS with the stock chromoly fork and Hutchinson Pythons at around 28 psi, and still had problems with sore wrists and tingling fingers. I am looking into a Ti fork for that reason (though I currently utilize a Marz. Marathon SL 85mm on my Jamis hartail SS).

    I basically just eye balled the gear combo, and then used a kmc half link. It is a little tight initially, but once the ring wears in it should be fine. It's fine now, but once the rings wears in it'll be finer:-)

    As for the fork....it definitely rides nice. It is one of the best rigid forks I have ever ridden. Handles much nicer than a surly fork. However, I think the Sycip boys are only building forks if you also buy a frame:-(

    Thanks for the replies.

    I am past the point of no return:-)

    But, at least this bike can hang in the garage as a complete bike, instead of sitting in pieces in various parts bins.

    The small wheels do feel odd now, and this thing handles scary fast compared to my strong.

    Oh, I dig the combover trailer.....looks like a riot. I am surprised that was the first I had heard of it?

    Hehehehe...

    ....yeah, I guess a sycip fork in the parts bin does sound a bit odd. I actually acquired it in a trade a while back and never really found a use for it....

    For someone who has spent quite a few years working in bike shops, my parts bin should be much more impressive!

    segmentation situation...

    Nice build there Donkey! I always dig them nicely/artisticly/fantasmagorically built SyCip giggers! That rig looks hella darty. NICE!!
    OT-I just heard from a friend in the VAlley that ElCap was climbed in 1hr 46minutes! I assume they meant the Nose? Is that crazy or what?

    happy trails!
    Night has fallen.
