Cobbled together this singlespeed from bits lying around (euphemism for stuff I didn't sell at the price I wanted :roll: ) and doing nothing.
Out for a spin tomorrow to see what it goes like.

Yup, Surly, went for the push up option as I have space, looks 8) er as well.
Chainring is Gusset....thick as.
Another cool bit of kit that I got was a half-link for the chain, really helped getting the tension.
