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...
Looking at getting a single speed bike but not knowing a great deal about them I was wondering if I told you lot what I wanted , and listen to some advise to those who know more
I am after a light bike , as I am light and really don’t want to make things harder than they have to be
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.
*Sorry, I'm struggling to load photos but I can send them another way to anybody interested..
The item for sale is my much cherished Genesis Flyer Single Speed road bike finished a beautiful metallic cherry red. The frame size is small (50cm) which would ideally suit somebody up to 5' 7".. I...
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...
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...
Pinaccle Arkose Single speed F&F - Medium TRP Hylex brakes
The frame is also designed to accept a mech hanger to convert to a geared bike.

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...
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...
This was my commuter but no longer required
It’s a pub beater bike that you don’t mind leaving at the station. At some point it’s been sprayed black and that’s starting to come off and the original white paint is showing through
it’s steel, I think it’s a Goku as this is the logo I can find on...
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...
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...
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...
With the trails being more bike and hike right now because of the warmer temps and melting snow. It was time to dust off the Single Speed and go play out on the roads.
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...
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.
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...

On one Pompino frame, large in white and fluro green. Will include the Brick Lane Bikes stem, spacers, Cane Creek headset, Planet X seatpost and Charge Spoon Saddle. No idea how to price this one as the frame has been well used and it shows in the paint finish! However, it's never been crashed...
