    Im new ! almost done building my first bike!

    Hi! Im Steven, I been looking on this website for ages for advice on building my first bike up and now that the build is almost complete, its time to show exactly what I have done so far, its a single speed bike I build, designed, and painted myself, before this I never even ridden a bike! the estimated weight will be 10.5 pounds. by the way the reynolds decals are comming off to be replaced with the new black and white zipps, for visual reasons ! Hope you like!, if you could give me any advice I would be gratefull! cheers and thanks for looking ![

    Welcome to Bike Forums. That's a nice looking bike! You should post the photos in the Singlespeed & Fixed Gear forum.

    Is that a vertical dropout in the back? Can you adjust your chain tension? Nice looking bike!

    Your bike is much better than mine and you are asking if I have advice?? I need to ask YOU for advice! *jealous*

    You might want to check out the mechanics section we have here or SS/FG.
