I was hoping no one would ask me that.... Yes, single-ring is the idea as the bike will have an AW in place of the original five-speed cluster. The crankset is a CNC thing I bought off eBay on impulse, a cheap knockoff very similar in appearance to VO's Grand Cru single speed, which itself resembles a lot of vintage alloy cranksets. It's not splendiferous and I simply hope it's adequate. Otherwise I'll be on the phone with VO again, probably.
