Little jumpy street singlespeed I finished a couple of weeks ago:


Little Thug is a tough little budget bike... it's stripped down, rebranded and 100% custom built from the parts bin! Has a tiny 13" steel hardtail frame, Shimano / Alesa cassette wheels with stainless steel spokes, singlespeed drivetrain with FSA cranks and new On-One chain tensioner, unknown but decent v-brakes with Avid levers and new red cables, VP alloy pedals, Gary Fisher saddle, new cro-mo singlespeed chainring bolts and new brown El Gallo grips... powdercoated seatpost and handlebars for a matching and extra tough black finish.

Micro gearing is set to 32/13 which gives a useful 63" ratio for all round street riding, by a diminutive hooligan hopefully (ie it's for sale)! Only mod I want to do is fit nicer tyres, poss Michelin Country Rock
