Anyhow...

Anyone know anything about the Curtis S1? Looks like a nice start to a singlespeed build but can't find much about it on't net.

Only 15.5 left though, if that floats your boat. Seems a decentish weight, but don't know much about it, not one we have ever tested at WMB/MBUK.

This is the modern 'classic' which is very popular at the minute for SS:

I'm pretty sure you know of it though!

Has to be worth a punt at £199...and I wouldn't hang around, only small left.

I think I have a medium British Racing Green one coming.

I had a 1st gen Inbred slot dropout and loved it, so much so that I sold it to buy a 2nd gen version, but didn't like it as much.

Sold it and never had another SS...

Got a hankering for another over the winter but don't want to give the Inbred another go.

Are you after horizantal dropouts, or would you consider a tensioner? As this is an utter bargain for an 853 steal frame, and one of the lightest steelies on the market.

Even 'I don't like steel' wouldn't mind one ;-)
