Surly 1x1- Pink
In the process of being built. Paul Hubs to DT rims. Profile Cranks (on order)
About time you listened to me.
Damn, I have multiple reasons to post in this thread!!
1. I started racing right there, at the Killer 3, way back in 1993, and it's still one of my favorite xc loops ever. The last 2 seasons Buddy had the races there i think I won 3 out of the 5. Eric Lemaire still has the course record as far as I can remember, set listening to his walkman and making us all look silly.
2. I just converted my old Spooky to an SS with an Eno hub. I threw on a karate monkey fork and a light- ass road wheel wrapped up in a motoraptor 2.1 for good measure. It ****ing rules. Would definetly be more fun somewhere besides western ma. Our ultra straight up/down riding and ultra rocks make it more challenging, but on some more Southeastern terrain the SS with the big front is more fun than nitrous.
I have a soul cycles hardline
I'll get some pics eventually
Surl Karate Monkey, 32 x 16 free, 32 x 13 fixed. Best bike in the world, swap between road slicks or knobbies and it will take on everything. I'll have to go find some pics, I know I have at least one lying around.
Now that's something you don't see every day. Assuming the filename is descriptive, how'd you wind up with that?
Edit: And a pic for SuspectDevice. K3 is my regular rainy day ride and about the only place around where I miss gears. Particularly the big ring.
I got me some.
Access commuter: 42x16, skinny slicks, getting to work got a whole lot more fun.
Voodoo Wanga: 32x17, sometimes rigid, sometimes not.
Who's riding SSWC05?
Surly 1x1 - free/fixed
Surly Crosscheck - fixed
Kelly Ro Sham bo - free (will be fixed too as soon as I get the cog)
Specialized something (beater/townie) - free
Previously: Azonic DS-1 (getting built up again for the girlfriend.)
Currently: Mountain Cycle Rumble S1
Running a 34x18 until I can push a 2:1 again 8(
I could of swore the file name was "http://www.ridemonkey.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=69284&stc=1&thumb=1". But if you must know, it's by a one man east coast builder, with two different color eyes and some of the best welds in the business. I am not sure if we are thinking of the same builder?
If we are, I will share the long story on how I got the bike.
Hells yeah, my favoritest bikey :love:
Yeah who is the builder of that frame? It looks sweet!
Damn that thing is sharp - you like the Explosif over the Blur do you Echo?
Well they both hold a special place in my heart but I really love the singlespeed, so light, so simple, so fast, so fun!
First name Tom I think? Lives in NH, or maybe MA? Lets hear it.
Edit: Wait. Its Ted. Ted Wojcik.
built this up friday.
Is that a 2005 Explosif frame??? If so you've gotta give me some ride impressions of it. What size is it? Do you have geometry numbers for it?
Man that looks sweet. The new tubing is bad ass.
yep 05. I took it out saturday morning for a 3.5hr ride. I really don't have anything to compare it to since I've been a fs rider for about 6 years. So running rigid is a whole different experience.
It wasn't as harsh as I thought. It did feel like riding a wild bull down some of the techie descents.
The fork (kona p2 disc only) dropouts weren't even so I had to sand away on one side so the wheel sat in there straight. The ft disc brake tabs need to be faced because clamping down the ft wheel causes the caliper to move slightly making the pad a lil crooked.
The rear tabs also need facing. Not sure if the frame or rear hub is outta spec, but there's not much I can do to fix the brake rub until then. I guess I can toss in another wheel to see if it is the frame.
The wheelset came out pretty good. I built it up with a paul word disc qr rear and a Real front. Wheelsmith 2.0/1.7 spokes alloy nip on dt disc rims. Those are the nicest rims I've ever built with.
i own four bikes..only one had a der.
and my evil.
all single speed.
wow, i don't have any pictures of my Inbred.
imagine an 853 Inbred (rigid, of course) with SD7s levers and calipers, Flak Jackets, Rasta headset, Thomson stem, PX bar, PX post, white Selle saddle, Kingzzzzzz laced to DTs, a High Roller in front, and a Larsen TT in the rear.
Henry, nice Teddy - sold mine to a fellow monkey not long ago to help finance my new SS - only about two weeks away from delivery now!
Here's my current identity-crisis ride, unfortunately also for sale:

I rode that frame in its previous life.

Built up the Surly last night and took it on a urban adventure with some guys from dcstreet.com.

Here's my 1x1. It's tits.
Ya know what kicks ass? I was looking around my garage today and I found an old BMX wheel with a 16T freewheel on it. So now I can be a "real" singlespeeder at 2:1...
I run 32x16.
I didnt know that meant i was a "real" singlespeeder though.
