    My single speed rigid 29er project.

    Hi all, I finished building my old frame up as a single speed yesterday. Here are some pictures.

    Frame: 2012 Felt Nine Race
    Fork: Salsa Cromato steel fork
    Bars: Felt 680mm stock bars with ESI chunky grips
    Brakes: Tektro Draco with 160mm front and rear
    Front wheel: WTB Speed Disc i23
    Rear wheel: Cheap Sta-Tru wheel from Amazon.
    Crankset: Raceface Ride with a N/W 32 ring and 20 cog on the back
    Chain tensioner: Surly Singleator
    Tires: WTB Prowler 2.1 tires




    Starting to come together.


    Drivetrain




    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.
