For anyone thinking of converting a non SS frame to SS, this http://eehouse.org/fixin/formfmu.php might come in handy. If you don't know what this is, don't worry, you soon will! :lol:

On one Inbred, from here.
Crosser wheels, from here.
Forks, had these, they're white.

Questions:
The wheels are heavy, suspension forks are heavy. Am I missing the point of building a singlespeed? Should I be going as light as possible and fitting rigid forks and a lighter wheelset?

I have a SS kit, well a cog and 2 spacers that put the sprocket in the centre of the freehub. Is it possible to work out what spindle length for the BB? I have yet to buy a crankset.

It all depends where you ride. If, like me, you'll be mincing around the North Downs, the hardest rocks being sandstone, and you're too old and/or skilful to thunp the bike from boulder to boulder, you can go as light as you like, but if you have a tendency to break things, keep it sturdy! :wink:

had a few single speed bikes, i love them.

currently have just the one at the moment though, even though i keep planning on other builds........

the main difference with this other my past SS projects is the awesome ENO white industries hubs......wow!

Is the rear hub eccentric? Any slippage / tension loss?
