Think the ring was alloy, everything on his bike seemed to be alloy, weird mechanical though, never seen anything like it.

I'm up for a Northern weekender, got loads of Anual leave and no one to get permission off other than my employer.

Now Kaiser, have you got the SS built yet !!!!

After CV in the glorious sunshine I built my Hardrock up into an SS from bare frame including press fitting headset and installing B/B in under 4 hours complete. Not a thing of beauty I know but a working example :D
Why can you not do this Kaiser, stop faffing and just build the thing. Gaz's Dale is a thing of beauty and so fast and light 8)

I'll be at Drumlanrig on an SS but I suspect with Gears for Ae :roll:

Cheers

I have started a new ss project :roll: but I will finish this one. Its in the best tradition of macretro singlespeeds ie its fooked at the moment, but it is alloy and it is shiney. Need a wee bit of welding done which I'm hoping to get done this afternoon.

wee bit of welding :lol: :lol:

Sounds like one of my builds.

SS ride at drum for me- might be the on-one if I get a following wind.

got a set of avid 7's in the post today 8) and riser bars from dyna ti, just need the tug nut from AC and fit the hollowtech cranks and I should be good to go.

I was going to powdercoat but will run with the bike to see if I like it first.

Kool and the gang, any thoughts on the agenda? I know you also wanted to do golspie. Laggan looks like it could be a good starter, would be able to get the travelling in and ride the trails. D'ya reckon DD would still be up for it?
