Not sure if I've posted any in this thread? if so sorry for dumping these in!!You've all seen them before, but it would be good just to put them all in the the place.

Also some are not 98> builds so a double sorry!

My first SS build was back in 1996 and I've had at least one on the go ever since.

In no particular order...

Surly 1x1

Cheers Jamie. The grey does look well, and I couldn't really have a black seeing as Gary got his first. :lol:
Not much to tell really. 2011 singlespeed builds on offer at the mo, and it sits as it did on Friday when I got it. Only difference is now it's a bit dirtier. :wink:
Been out on it last two afternoons after work and loving it so far. It definitely takes a bit more work to steer the big barge, but I only overshot a couple of corners before I started to get to grips with it. :lol: But boy does it roll once you get it going.:mrgreen:

Glad your liking it :) Surly's rule!
I love mine and once I get my disc's sorted I will be sticking a set of 29 wheels on for summer and use my fat 26'ers for winter.
Thats the beauty with the 1X1 that you can run 29'ers but cant go bigger than1.95/ 2.00 on the rear or you hit the brace :roll: especially on the small frames I ride :wink:
Looking forward to seeing it at a macretro ride sometime soon.
Jamie
