    Any 26'er Single Speed frames available?

    There are many 29'er single speed frames available, but are there any SINGLE SPEED frames made for 26" wheels? I think that I would like to put some fat slicks on a 26'er and stomp around Austin.

    On One? They're in the UK but the exchange rate isn't too bad for you at the moment.

    I went to a LBS after posting this question. They had a Redline Monocog with 29" wheels for sale. The salesperson told me that he could order a Monocog with 26" wheels. That answered my question. I'm still looking forward to hearing from other people.

    What other brands, aside from the premium brands, would you recommend?

    A small frame. I'm 5' 7", and I prefer a bike that's just a hair on the smaller side. A 16" frame I think.

    Salsa makes a single speed, but I don't know if they make one for 26" wheels.

    I took a look at the Surly 1x1. I like the look of that frame. The front fork has just a little bit of rake, and I like that.

    Is that it. Heck at that price, you might as well also buy a spare just to have hang around.

    I know. I have 5 of them just in case I need to go to the grocery store real quick or lend one to a friend who's lost his license due to a DUI.
