HI, here's my 'bits box special' Cindercone.

Sorry, it's an Alu Kona...apologies to the easily shocked :shock:

I built it up out of whatever I had around, really to try out singlespeeding.

1999 Cindercone Frame
New P2's
Deore V's (thanks ededwards)
Sugino Cranks, 32T chainring
Hope Ti hubs with blue ano bits
Campag Mirox rims
Kona Break & Enter tyres (off the wife's Fire Mtn)
Bontrager bars
San Marco Bontrager Ti saddle
Shimano 17T freewheel

The rear hub is screw-on, so I rebuilt the it with the spacers on the opposite sides and the dish on the right instead of the left. The chainline is pretty much spot-on.

I'm having a whale of a time and it's amazing how light the bike feels!

It's not a looker, the frame has lots of scratches.
