I fancy giving singlespeeding a try. Anyone got a 16" frame example they'd like to sell? Doesn't have to be particularly retro, as long as it's not aluminium or hi-tensile!

Hi Knobby,

I have a 16" steel frame with rigid forks that I was about to convert into a single speed. Would consider selling the frame as it is if interested. It happens to be retro too!

Thanks for the offer, dc, but I already have a Kona Firemountain frame which I may convert myself. Just being lazy really and wanted to see if I could pick a bike that someone else has built and debugged!

i've got a complete conversion kit if you want to make a go of a former geared bike. it's a lot cheaper to ship from the USA too!

spot brand spacer kit...a series of spacers to take up all the extra space on the cassette. various thicknesses make dialing in the chainline easy.

several cogs...16t king alloy cog (essentially new), 17t endless alloy cog (used, perfectly serviceable), 20t steel surly (essentially new)

rennen tensioner...bolt-on, rock solid. never a problem with chain drops. push-up or push-down. used, perfectly serviceable. replacement bearings included.

PM if interested.
