So I received this rather nice frame in trade from RockiMtn recently and my long term plan is for a neon re-paint built up with black LX/XT kit. But being an impatient sort I decided that I could probably throw together a nice single speed commuter/snow bike without actually having to spend any money.
Once I decided on the build I just had to find a few hours to throw it together, I'm really pleased with the result:
