Been cleaning out the garage and got sidetracked.
Fondling a frame led to fitting a headset I had bought ages ago and had never got round to fitting. A pair of rigid forks I bought on a whim off the classified got fitted.Just to see how it looked.
On this went till there is just about a bike there. Just need to decide if this one is going to get those SLX brakes or a set of hand me downs from another bike.
So its going to be a rigid single speed. I have even fitted a SS specific chain ring I bought last time I had this yearning.
What I do not have is a tensioning device,chain or sprocket set.So before I pull the trigger which is better? Toothed or roller type? Do i need a SS specific chain or will a 9speed from my box of spares do? Do the cheap narrow sprockets chew up the free hub? Do i need one of the wider ones I have seen advertised?
Not had a shave since Thursday and the itching is driving me mad. Is the SS experiment going to do the same?
