    Any info on a Gresham Flyer? The little I've found doesn't show it in the Raleigh family. Just looks like a funk work horse on the floor of the LBS.

    Trying to figure out what I need, actually. Might go with one of the Nitto bars and play with the stem rise. I've been liking my bars right at the saddle height or a bit higher.

    Good thing I don't have a bottom bracket yet. :)

    Got the crankset off ebay for a 1x9 project and then rethought and figured it would be nice to build this bike up with a wider gear range.

    Single Chain Ring to Double?

    Probably a stupid question: I have a Shimano 105 FC-1050 crankset w/44T ring on it. Can I pick up a second ring and some longer bolts to make it a double?
