Here's my fettled singlespeed Cindercone.
I built up the bike a year ago to have a go at singlespeeding and see what the fuss was about - the frame was horribly scratched but cheap from ebay. I know the purists will shudder...an Alu Cindercone
Anyway, I enjoyed riding it so much i decided to smarten it up. I'm not big on originality, bling parts or extrovert paint jobs, and I want to avoid the smug singlespeeder thing. It's more a "walk softly and carry a big stick" kind of understated bike.
I put on a simple 1994 Kona name and head badge, as I loathe the later jungle style ones.
I don't much go for trick parts, the stuff I've got is strong, lightish and reliable...the whole bike is somewhere between 21 and 22lb
1999 Kona Cindercone, P2 forks
Thomson seatpost (I bent the cheap Selcof one)
San Marco Bontrager Ti saddle
Raceface Prodigy Stem
Bontrager bars, Ritchey grips
Cane Creek ergo bar-ends (brilliant things)
Sugino Impel Cranks (somehow Konas need to have Suginos, and I can't stand 4-arm cranks)
Deore V brakes, Avid 5.0 levers (can't see the point of pricier ones)
Ashima replaceable pads
Hope Ti hubs (screw-on rear with 16T Shimano BMX freewheel)
Mavic 319 rear and 519 front, Panaracer Fire XC Pro 1.8 tyres
Hope blue ano skewers and seat clamp (sole concession to bling)
Ride it or milk it!
