8) another great build!
As for gearing,its best to decide whats right for you and where you ride but always err on the low side!
Hope to see you at a ride soon!
Cheers Marcus, just back from from a nice few hours in the saddle. My first experience of single speed since the days of BMX! A strange experience but one I grew to enjoy
First inpressions, the gearing of 32/18 is too low. So I'm going to replace the 18 rear with a 16 and see how that feels, it climbed really well even without the aid of bar ends, but I was spinning far too much on the flats IMO. All in all though the bikes a success, the brakes are bedding in a treat (amazed just how good this modern Deore kit is), the chain tensioner is doing it's job too, most important it handles like a 1992 alpinestars
So the next step will be to get the gearing sorted and AT-4's fitted, then go from there with regard to cutting bits off and repainting. But here's a few pics, some baiku and some back garden
