Very tough choice and thanks for the supportive words (and vote!) above.

I'm going to have a good think before casting and am torn between the beautifully specced ones with semi horizontal or horizontal dropouts (no need for a tensioner) or ones that are still very tasty but just put together from available parts using a tensioner (using existing bits/frames seems to be the ss ethos).

Decisions, decisions....

Thanks Kingroon, a vote! :o

I love the Klein roadie and the Orange but.....for anyone who missed the nomination topic:

BOTM September 07 - Single Speed machines !!

...there are lots of additional pics on there of lots of the bikes too - it's the pic of the dinky little Rock Lobster's rear drop outs that swung it for me in the end. :)

So many great bikes here but my vote goes to Messiah's Explosif, it has a great story attached to it and it's obviously well used and loved :D
