- 29er Singlespeed Frame?
Depend what you mean by reasonable. I think my £400 singular swift frame and fork with ebb was more than reasonable given how good it feels, frame quality, finish, etc. Much better than the £130 on-one I tried which felt like gas pipe filled with lead in comparison. I’d have felt robbed paying that for the on-one especially as you would need forks too.Posted 5 years agoFishboneMember
My Chumba any good to you, I’m 6ft and it is spot on size wise. It’s nearly as good as new.Posted 5 years ago
Charliethebikemonger has 18″ & 20″ El-Mariachi’s at £350 at the moment.
You could do a lot worse…
Inbreds not quite a lead filled old dog to ride. I quite liked mine.Posted 5 years ago
For £130 its worth a go, plus you’ll get most of your money back if you do move on to something betterer.charlie the bikemongerSubscriber
Salsa el mariachi…. Triple butts of steely kick arse…
Or I have Canfield nimble nine on offer in large . Email me…

What’s nice about the Salsa is how easy it is to adjust the dropouts and how easy it is to remove the wheel, takes seconds…Posted 5 years ago
Mines a geared one which does SS as well, if you don’t like the dangly bit you can get the SS dropout for £25.
The El M 2 is a 44mm headtube so can take tapered forks as well
Very versatile frame, gears, SS, rigid, bouncy forks, all good..sillyoldmanSubscriberbent udderMember
Try the On-One Scandal V2 swapout. They’re £149, weigh a load less than the InBred, and are really rather nice. I’m the other end of the size spectrum, by the way.
Singular use a Phil Wood EBB – the one on my Hummingbird has bee silent, flawless and generally spot on for almost three years now, with zero maintenance. There are benefits and drawbacks to all tensioning methods, of course…Posted 5 years agoStefMcDefSubscriber

what size do you want, i know a man selling a salsa selma for silly money and there’s a chumba hx2 in the classifieds and they’re ace bikes
OP, if you can get a Selma frame for silly money, and it fits, go for it.
Superb frame. Very light and supple. Not a hint of trouble out of the EBB either.Posted 5 years ago
I’ve had my Selma 3 weeks now courtesy of a tipoff from Taz, it rocks. I got a PR on some local singletrack the other day on it, despite (perhaps because) it being set up SS rigid. Faster than my 20 speed 120mm HT, faster than my 27 speed full boinger!
They’re discontinued, I’d buy another for stock if I came across one. If anyone has a medium going hit me up.
Taz are you meaning the one someone put on 1Cog a couple of weeks ago? (Which was a large I believe).Posted 5 years agoplacid_casualMember
No I have the black frame in charlie’s post.
I was wondering how many of the 300 worldwide, 2013 singlespeeds had ended up in the UK?
The only downside is how low the front end is. So i have to run about 50mm spacers.
About 30mm here. More than I’d likePosted 5 years ago
Loving that el mariachi SS, are they available?jambo13Member
Just got myself one of these:
Bought last year’s model for £499 from Mountain Trax in Barkham, they still have a large in stock I think. This years is only £599 though.
Cracking bike, and amazing value. Only turd thing on there was the brakes that I swapped immediately for a set of hydraulics I already had.Posted 5 years ago
