Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

2021 Tsunami frame after only...eight months wait


So, it's a new build that I'm enjoying. I have it set up with 48x17 or 48x18. It came out at a hair beneath 19 lbs.

These frames are nicely finished. Note the smooth weld transitions at the head tube and seat cluster. I used carbon bars, stem and seatpost.

Love this!! Where did you snag it? I've been eyeing these for awhile. Looks like they are a good package. Did you build it, or buy it complete?

Looks awesome 😎

Thanks. I assembled it. All but the wheels and bottle cage clamps are from sellers on AliExpress. The wheels are Velomine. The clamp mounts are from Chain Reaction.

These are decent frames, and they come with the headset, seatpost clamp, and loose star nut.

what handlebar is that? I was getting the nitto shred bar but yours look even better

That is the Nitto B809...

Edit: I should note that I narrowed the bars by about 6cm...

This is certainly true. This is an exquisite look. It sounds like it's as fun to ride, too. Wow.

When you need a 21.1mm stem you put on whatever bars you can get!

Agreed, but this one fills a more important niche in my small quiver of singlespeeds: the true all-rounder.
