Well it's been a long time coming. Here's the final build photos of the Cindercone SS.

Yes I know I need to take a few more links out of the chain. And, no I can't remove the inner ring from the front chainset. I'll probably pick up a 110 BCD 4 hole ring somewhere at some point but for now it works.

Not had a chance for a proper ride out yet but hopefully tomorrow (off to pub for Rugby all-dayer in a minute).

Cool!

Think I've just found the tyres I'll be using on the next build!

Sort that rear cable out though!!

Very nice bike :D

Ditch the chainstay protector and get yourself some helicopter tape though!

Need to get some nokon for the rear V brake. at the moment, I need this length of cable to keep it running smoothly. It's ok, even if it looks a little odd.

I fancied a blast on the SS today so I decided to take 2 links out of the chain before setting off. It turns out that this made the chain so tight that the tensioner was almost redundant. Took a bit of persuasion to pop the chain onto the sprocket but once it was on it was rock solid! Maybe it'll stretch over time. After a couple miles the little bridge on the on-one style tensioner kept catching on the frame so I removed the whole unit. 10 miles later and it's perfect and quiet :D
