My first attempt at a single speed.

Based on my 1999 Sunn Tottall soft tail that I have tried to build up in several guises before but never quite got to a point where it was rideable.

Sorry the photos are a bit poop but I didnt have my camera on me when I was out on it earlier.

Built it on Sunday morning out of the spares bin. currently using a 9spd cassette and a old LX rear mech as a tensioner, so still needs a fettle. Also must play with the ratio's as its a wee bit silly on the flat streets of London town at the mo.

Saracen Kili, Week 2, Phase 2. White forks added (thanks, Kaya!). Still awaited, white stem and (probably) lose the chain tensioner thingy.

Wheels/tyres swopped for now for "blue" X222s and Double Fighters.

My stealthy 1999 Cindercone. It uses a modified Hope Ti screw-on hub, BMX freewheel and a reverse dish rear wheel.
21-22lb with otherwise very vanilla parts.

nice bikes, keeo them coming but why tension the chain down? up gives better chain wrap and less chance for slipping.
