Inspiring thread, let me add mine in the mix

My first SS was a 29er: Singular Swift in Badass Black:
Image

I converted my Sinister Ridge to ride with my son and his SS BMX.
Image

The Swift went and the Curtlo came instead
Image

By now I had the bug proper and I splashed out on a dedicated SS 26" Indy Fab:
Image

Next build is gathering momentum in the shed, but not ready to shre .... yet

Image

Enjoy!!

I bought this Kilauea as a broken frame sometime in the late 90s, had a few incarnations since then. A bit disappointed that white Konas have become something of a cliche, but this one was white (ish) originally ;)

(and yes, I've tensioned the chain since then :) )

Andy,

You can do either. Buy a single speed specific wheel like Chris King, or use any wheel with cassette capability and instead of a cassette you fit a cheap single speed conversion kit. A great and cost effective way if you have spare wheels kicking around!
