Beautiful and those cranks ♥️♥️🤤

How do you get on with the Paul Melvin? Always fancy trying a 2x1 setup with one of those.

I absolutely love it. Minimal chain slap and the direct power feel of single speed. I'm running single speed rings on the front and shifting is still smooth and consistent between the two.
