I'm just putting the finishing singlespeed touches to my team raleigh Dynatech MT5 metal matrix from c.1992/3. Cannot believe how light it is! Needs a proper weigh, but I'm guessing sub 20lb. Sweet. :P

i was into trials and jumping for a while

and then got retro well i "got kona"

at one point i ran the retros for commute and the other bikes for fun
but ive give up trials/jump now and just use the one bike for everything

i also had a marin and a dmr sidekick but i cant find pics

ive been single speed only for about 2 years - for commuting and for fun

Hey aljsk8

Whats the bottom frame?

Looks just like my Kona Caldera frame.

Loving the single speed thing - I'm definatley going singlespeed for my commute bike - just a time thing!

My Peugeot is "525" and i notice when hammering it in the big ring it worryingly(?) flexes!

My Caldera flexes a bit but the Peugeot is in its own class! Ever noticed any flex on the Raleigh?
