Yea, boo to Giant's late release date. My friend ordered a Glory and canceled the order 2 weeks into it because the bike hadn't even made the shipping crate from overseas. Wouldn't surprise me if that STP was still ore in China.

Enjoy that STP, though. One of the finer of the breed.

Nice frame, looks like someone is going to have to use a chain tensioner now.

Probably, but there is an equation for chain tension.

Yea SS would be the way to go if you wanted a full out dedicated street rig. If its a do-it-all type bike then I would lean towards running gears.

Why won't an eccentric Hub work with Saint Cranks? Personally I'd try and get my hands on an Eno Eccentric Disc Hub, those things look and run awsome. Or use a half link in your chain and get a pimp Hadley SS or a normal Eno Disc Hub. You should be able to fit the STP singlespeed without a tensioner, there were so many STP's in Aus that it was not funny and most people had them running SS without a tensioner.
