My latest ss build.

Pace RC104.

Largely British build on this, not really by design. Just a happy accident. Pace frame, Genesis forks, Hope hubs, brakes, headset, Halo rims, Middleburn cranks, DMR bars and pedals, Charge saddle and tyres. :D

I like that ^^^. :D

What's the rules with running a full suspension bike as a single speed?
Ie. chain growth etc when the suspension is compressed.
Would a URT design be OK Single speed?

As long as the distance between the centre of the BB and the rear axle stays the same through it's travel it's all good!... if you're not running a chain tensioner. I have seen SS dh bikes running a sprung loaded chain tensioner in lieu of a rear mech to cope with adverse effects on the chain.

The main pivot on the Bolt L clamps around the BB shell so you can run the horizontal swopouts in one gear mode, I originally bought the frame purely to run a single speed full sus. It's now retired and since been replaced but it was a lot of fun!
