Hi All,

New to the forum and new to single speed. Just trying my first strip down and rebuild at the moment. Managed to be gifted an old raeigh which is in brilliant condition and has nice retro mavic wheels.

Couple of pictures of progress so far.

What SS freewheels are people running? I've got a cheap Dicta on my bike, and after 100k it's already crunchy. I washed the bike yesterday, lifted it up today to move it and water poured out of the (unsealed) freewheel...

That Carlton looks very nicely built. Here is an updated picture of my Kowal. It is getting some use in the evenings.

Will get pics up in due course... I have a Ribble Reynolds 653 in for shotblasting currently. Plans include powdercoating, new decals all round and 48/14 fixed gearing from a suzue rear hub mounted to a mavic open pro :)

Sounds tasty. 48-14 gearing is pretty keen, hope you've got tough knees!
