Some of you may remember me questioning what singlespeed was all about, and I thought about it, then when I bought this Raleigh Technium Chill at the weekend I figured I'd give it a go.
It's been done on the super-cheap. In fact when I take into account how much I might make on the parts excess to requirement (up for sale here soon), the whole bike comes to Â£40. I'll upgrade bits as I can, but it's a working bike, tested today and was great.
It's running a 46t front with a 15t rear (haven't even got round to 'proper' rear singlespeed hub/spacers etc!). For my commute of 11 miles of undulating countryside this ratio will be ideal.
Can anybody confirm this is the 1990 model by the way?
