Well its been a busy bike year for me , new in and old ones out.I have however now rebuilt this 89 Fat. I did strip it to sell it off,the frame didn't sell (good for me) and a thoughts of how to make this bike more interesting to ride began.It was up against my beloved Yo's so it had to be something special. All credit must go to Kaiser ,a build he did on his Wicked a while back was an inspiration from then on and was a perfect solution to me If it came off. Although I have the original fork for this, I managed to persuade Kaiser to part with his Groovy fork.This enabled me run a longer front loading stem and some Luv Handles (perfect in my opinion for Single speed)
I sold my Grello and used the White Industries Eno Hub for the perfect single speed.
So here it is, no other plans other than it will eventually go geared as I will have two other Single Speeds in the fold.
I must say it rides so much nicer, could be the Fork,Headset,Bars or it could be the Single Speed setup, who knows- but the gamble has paid off.
