Cheers guys 8)

What are the thoughts on the DMR fluoro green grips.????? The more I look at them the more I think they just look wrong - plus with the lock on grips I can't run bar ends :(

Would black grips look more appropriate?

Also need some standard spd pedals rather than the MASSIVE downhill shimano type that are on there at the mo.... :D

8) yeah I'm beginning to think that's the way forward - expect to see the 'dmr's' in the for sale section soon! :oops: :oops:

also I think a black seat post is needed to match the stem.

So after a while running with the Klein as it was I 'somehow' have ended up with another two bikes (a Kona MuniMula and a Cannondale Jekyll!!).

I had been thinking for a while that I would love to turn the Klein into a single speed and with the other two bikes being geared it seemed a logical move. A stripped back version of the Klein just for using on light trails and roads.

So the spec has changed to:

Mavic Crossride wheels and Qr's
Relic single speed freehub kit
Mr Control Chain Tensioner
Continental Cross Country 1.5" tyres
Stx Rc Chainset modified to run a single ring
Woodman Carbon Bar ends

Image

Even with the heavy forks/seatpost/bottom bracket and cranks its very light.

It rides so much better for it too! :D
