This man is an offroad animal- he only needs one gear and that is super fast- last time out he pedalled so hard he broke 3 of his chainring bolts- don't worry about Jamie :wink:

Thanks for the kind words.
Feetabix glad to hear your back into it, thanks for the advice. As long as I can sort the brakes it will be the machine for SS09. I intend to be in a dribbling state by saturday night, let alone sunday race 8)
Gaz seems to have gotten me confused with another jamiedyer with a stumpy? One who also losses chainring bolts? who would have thought :wink:

Have been getting it ready for SSUK 09
A few improvements:
Surly tensioner, thanks Bas, changed the spring to an upward push. Works really well.
Fiddled with the brakes but ended up sticking to the XTR canti's.
Fitted a Titec H Bar, designed by Jeff Jones but Titec are licenced to make them in Alloy rather than Jeffs titanium. I tried these on a Dave Yates at Bothy bikes a while back and instantly they felt right. It was actually the first single speed I had ridden, besides a BMX, so thanks Gordon.
Changed the Storm control tyres for a set of ground control front and a master control rear.
And yes, before anyone mentions it I have to cable up the front break :wink:

Heres a couple of pics
