Is anyone interested in exchanging ideas/thoughts on single-speed bikes?
I finally got around to piecing one together from "cool old stuff laying around" = Mid-'80's Crotch Rocket Mountainbike Frame/Fork, Cook Bros Racing Cranks, Dia Compe Ti Canti Brakes w/SS5 MKII Levers, Carbon Seatpost & Flite Ti Saddle (White To Match The Frame/Fork Color!?), Suntour Pro BMX Pedals, Kingsbery Hubs Laced To Sun CR16 Rims Using Wheelsmith 15-17 Spokes & Alloy Nipples w/American Classic Ti QR's, American Roller Stem, Nitto Riser Bars, Specialized Nimbus 1.4x26 Tires/Slime Tubes, Mt Zefal Fenders, Greenfied Kickstand, Regina FW Body w/One Cog, and Surly Singleator).
It's turned out to be a spiffy "Going To The Coffe House" ride and is proving to be quite fun on "easier" double & single track trails.
So it seems it was worth the effort.
