found a few pics of my singlespeed project so though i would share.

it started out with the purchase of a 1998 DMR Trailstar frame from a riding buddy.

Image

as you can see it was a little rough around the edges but i mocked it up with some Judy SL's i had kicking around in the garage.

id already decided i wanted to get it powder coated white but at the last minute changed my mind and went with orange. really pleased witht he colour and it only cost £30 to get it blasted and coated!
Image

I then started building it up with some more parts i had kicking around in the garage, Race Face cranks and Tioga Cube bar and stem combp

Image
Image

the next changes came in the form of Blue DMR stickers, which i was told wouldnt work with the orange!, and some rigid forks and some orange pedals

Image

Image

since these last 2 photos where taken i have changed the forks to Marzocchi DJ3's and Hayes HFX9 discs front and rear, but i havent any photos of that as yet. im thinking about selling the DJ3's and getting some more rigid forks at the mo.

The Full Susser is a Da Bomb Cherry Bomb, terrible name but a good little bike

Cheers Buddy, I bought the frame as i wanted to build up a cheap FS bike, hadnt heard of them but they got good reviews on the web. the frame was only £350 at the time from CRC reduced from nearly £700. Ive since bought some Da Bomb free ride wheels for it and they are amazing too.
