My single speed rigid 29er project.
Hi all, I finished building my old frame up as a single speed yesterday. Here are some pictures.
2012 Felt Nine Race
Salsa Cromato steel fork
Felt 680mm stock bars with ESI chunky grips
Tektro Draco with 160mm front and rear
WTB Speed Disc i23
Cheap Sta-Tru wheel from Amazon.
Raceface Ride with a N/W 32 ring and 20 cog on the back
WTB Prowler 2.1 tires
Starting to come together.
It's maiden voyage this morning
I almost ate it when I forgot I wasn't in my full suspension rig and hit a rock the same way.
All in all, I had fun building it, and it's a blast to ride. I topped out at 16 mph, spinning at about 120ish rpms.
