After selling my Pipedream in a moment of madness and then using my trusty Kona as my single speed ride I came to the conclusion that I needed a dedicated SS bike again :oops:

There are some that know of my SS antics: lots of swearing, red faced and generally cursing my lack of gears :oops:

Still I enjoy riding SS - just seems right :? :twisted:

So what to build ...... If I am honest my Pipedream frame was perhaps not the best in terms of lightness but was a real hoot to ride.

So this time I will have hopefully addressed the weight issue by using the wonder material 8)

Quick teaser shot as I am not sure how quick a build this will be. I have everything bar forks.

Sadly the HT on this frame is longer than the steerers in my forks so will be needing a new pair.

Thinking rigid :? :P

Any hoo a pic ......

Excuse the watermarks on the frame :oops:
