Single, 1x9 or 2x9?

It's just begging to be built as a singlespeed, but properly, with a Forward Components EBB, not one of those ugly bolt-on tensioners.

Lovely colour, I say 2X9 they are remarkably sporty and deserve to go fast :) In saying that I have mines set up 3X9 and I never leave the middle :o
