OK, so I´ve fixed it up with the Chris King 18T cog instead.
I´ve had a problem with a stuck post that I´m now trying to solve.
Within the next couple of weeks i´ll hopefully get that fixed.
Here´s a pic for now.
I hope this bike will be really cool when it´s done :D

The next piece of the puzzle solved!
I got the Blackspire chainring, 36T, on ebay from an australian mystery man...
He sent it promptly though so no worries there :lol:

This is what it looks like on the crank.

Have a nice weekend

Interesting bike, you should take a pic with your rasta-jersey and other Bontrager gear when it`s done.

Hi folks!

After f**king up my seat post I´ve had the frame the entire summer at my LBS.
In the end it had to be pushed down the seat tube, and that really sucks!
I´ll never be cocky thinkng I´ll do that sort of stuff on my own again :facepalm:
The one thing that didn´t suck is that I´ve got my rasta bonty back :twisted:

OK, the only thing I didn´t have handy was a half-link. That would have worked nicely so I have the old middle ring (32T) in place of the blackspire (36T).
So it´s now 32/16. Not really workable for commuting but a real workout riding trails, at least for me. Let´s see what the future brings...

Enuff talking, time for pictures. I´ll update later on if I take some cool pics.
Especially with my rasta team jersey ;)
I have to say that Bontragers look real wicked as single speeds :twisted:

Comments are welcome.

Here´s a pic of it with 32/18 gearing.
Much nicer on the trails, at least for me.

And here´s a pic for Erol who I´ve bought some cool bonty stuff from.
Here with rasta team jersey and team cap!
Cheers mate :)

A little update as I´ve committed using the privateer as a commuter bike :facepalm:

I´ll try using a 42/18 gearing for starters as I´ve got lots of heavy climbing to and fro work.
Hopefully I won´t go back using the race lite, but time will tell.

Reusing a 42T XT chainring...

Image

In all it´s glory.

And after riding in shitty weather. Swedish winters really suck anal as it´s cold as hell right now.
Hopefully it´ll be a lot better, soon...

Have fun and take care

I´ve finally put in the un-91 bb that I got a year and a half ago.
The old one (and original) gave up the ghost so it was about time...

Image

With a little luck I´ll update some more if ebay is kind to me :mrgreen:

And here´s the update.

I got hold of a real nice crank, Dura Ace FC-7410, which is 8-speed.
I got it from Italy and the guy shipped it super quick!
I´ll see if I can fix the oxidation later, but they look fine to me :)
And they´re really light, as you might expect 8)

Image

In there is the Chris King 16T cog that goes on as well...
