My SS history:

'10 SE Stout, swapped to a 34t FSA & Ritchey Truegrips after one ride....
Image

Image

Image

Sold the Stout picked up my Klein(also now gone).
Started like this
Image
Image

Ended up like this, 36/18 magic gear. The whell is against the front on the dropout.
Image

Image

The Klein is gone but I have a 1990 Fisher Montare frame/fork on the way for my next singlespeed, Mainly so I don't have to worry about this one sitting outside the bakery/store/wine festival(we are in Germany) with the wife/kids:

Having posted my 1X1 before I thought I would update with a few changes that have gone on with this very versatile frame:

Usual running and original build for last few years, V brake equipted XS size 14'' running 32 x 16 on 26's:
Image

Then this summer, well August, tried out som 29'er wheels, minimal clearance but fit fine, also finally fitted my BB5's:
This pic is before it was finished.
Image

And finally last week I laced up my rims that I have had sitting in the loft for a few years, some Spank Stiffy's onto Deore disc hubs. :D
Again pic from before I put the chain on and rode away.
Image

Image

Image

Really love this bike, easily the most fun bike I've ever owned.
Now have a Pugsley frame, fork and wheels to build up into my winter SS :D
