single speed

  1. Zipp2001

    The winter Single Speed build is done.

    The hardest part was the wait for parts to come in, but that's over now. I turned my old Zipp2001 TT bike into a single speed, after I gave my other Zipp2001 single speed to my youngest son last year. But I wanted to be a tad different with this build and go with a gates carbon belt drive...

    Single speed ebike

    My single speed ebike only lets me turn the pedals very slowly before the PAS motor kicks in. Any suggestions?

    Spotted single speed in Glasgow

    While driving in Glasgow yesterday I saw a single speed bike locked up at a bike rack. It has curved chain stays and seat tubes like a "Curly Hetchins" but it looked new, and had what looked like carbon forks. Anyone know what it might be.

    Fixie / Single Speed chainring bolt sizes

    Hello there! How long are Shimano compatible chainring bolts on fixies / Singlespeed bikes? Ideally I need the length of both halves of the bolts (male and female) separately and if possible how long the parts are when bolted together. Annoyingly I forgot to measure the chaninring bolts before...

    [SOLD] 58cm Dave Lloyd framed SingleSpeed (with many upgrades)

    This is a SingleSpeed I built to be my 'forever bike' but it doesn't suit the type of riding I now do with my young daughter. I've called this bike bombproof for a good reason. There are solid Tannus Tyres on those Mavic Aksium wheels. So zero punctures. The wheels are bolted on with...

    The Single Speed is alive !

    We've had such a light winter and today the temp got up to 45 degrees (7.2 Celsius). So why not pull out the good old Single Speed for a light rolling 15 mile romp. I always have fun swinging my legs over her beam and taking her for a romp. I love getting a good old leg trashing cranking out the...

    Single speed freewheels

    Does anybody have access to a variety of freewheels? My back wheel is a mavic elipse and have been using a cheap dicta freewheel with it. Nothing wrong with the dicta except that it makes a clunky noise. I tried to upgrade to a simano freewheel, but have found that when screwed on, there is...

    Single speed / fixie - £90

    This was my commuter but no longer required It’s a pub beater bike that you don’t mind leaving at the station.

  15. Racing roadkill

    I think I’m going to convert my old road bike to single speed.

    It’s my BSA Tour de France from the mid 1980s, and my first road bike. I really haven’t got the time or inclination to do a full resto, so I’m going to convert it to single speed, when I get time.

    Take Me, Take Me, Single Speed bike !

    Started the morning thinking I was going to ride the road bike from the shop. Then decided that yesterdays trail ride was so fun that it was the 29+ from home after work instead. Go down to the bike cave to get the trail bike, and look over at the Single Speed and just had to take her out for...

    Tour of Cambridgeshire

    Anyone else doing this (the 100 miler) on a Single Speed or Fixie this year? If so, what gearing you looking at riding, and what is your target time to complete?

    Single Speed Hardtail - M frame - £100 - SOLD

    Looking to sell this single speed hardtail MTB that I did up recently. I bought this bike as a donor for another project, then decided it was too nice to languish as a bare frame in the shed, so built it up again as a SS. Medium frame (18" seat tube) 32/17 gearing (brand new 17t sprocket and...

    Which brands/models chainsets / chainrings have perfect centering?

    Since my newest bicycle I'm plagued with serious chain tension variation. First a Sugino now also a Stronglight. Other causes have been eliminated, I replaced chainring/chain/rear cog with new, still directly a tension variation of 2 cm up and down, which is said to result from a 0.5 mm...

    Single Speed comes out of hibernation

    Building a Single Speed

    Hi, I am looking at the 2 frames below to build a cheap SS. I am pretty technically inept but want to improve. Are there any obvious issues/things I would need to consider with the frames below? I know I would need a chain tensioner for the vertical dropouts. I am leaning on the caliper...

    Falcon 531 single speed

    Update for my Falcon. This is so light. Put in some bars and wheels to get a perspective. Wheels will change but I think I will keep the bars.

    What gear ratios are you running?.....

    I'm currently running 42/18 on my cyclocross bike and it can become a bit of a wrestling match on the longer gravel climbs! Was thinking i could go 36 at the front as i'd rather spin out than blow up, thoughts are appreciated.

    Single Speed plus Granny - will it work?

    First the idea - since it might sound stupid I'll add some background as to why I want to achieve this next post. I want to convert my 90's rigid Marin to SS, with the option of a granny gear for long steep climbs. I currently have a triple 42/32/24 chain ring set-up, and an 11-34t...
