AC, I hope you feel better soon, and we'll catch up at the next one.
I am in the process of building my singlespeed Stumpy to bring along and get some practice on.
Pretty skint lately so its just getting built with bits I have around with the exception of the singlespeed spacer, cog and tensioner which I got for £20 quid. I just need to get a chain, new seatpost ( I seem to have lost my original one), brake cable and shorter chainring bolts.
I got the old Stumpy out the loft fitted a new set of forks I had lying under a bed, S works stem, new team bars in red I got from sidekick early last year, some XT brakesthe original LX crank and some wheels that arnt really retro. I picked them up around 2001 on sale. They are french Mach 1 race editions, good light wheels and for the moment just stuck on some old cheap spesh tyres, these I will probably change before the weekend.
Getting there but should have it finished and a quick shakedown ride just before I have to leave. Will bring one of the others just in case.
Looking forward to it.
Heres a couple of pics.
Carlsberg dont build Singlespeeds but if they did.......they would probably look just like mine.
I've spent half my life on bikes.........the other half I wasted
