    This will probably create me some stick from the 29er single speeders out there, but I wasn’t giving the bike enough attention with it being set up as a single speed because I found the single speed limiting to my kind of riding and terrain so have now gone 1 x 10 and kept it fully rigid.
    The first big ride on it tomorrow morning so I’ll let you know what I think to the 32t 36-11 setup! 😀
    Here it is!

    I’m expecting some proper sarcasm from certain people, not mentioning names, but it begins with T and ends with azzy! 😉

    Meh, I’m looking to change my Singlespeed frame (currently a Sanderson Soloist) to something capable of taking a 1x(9/10) setup for when the mood takes me…

    That’s a lovely looking bike.

    No shame in it. My Inbred went SS – 1×10 – SS over the last year.

    Don’t get me wrong Guys,I did like the S/S, but I kept picking the 3 x 9 green bike with suspension forks every time. Now I can also ride my light weight rigid also!

    Oh and BTW, your bike looks even better than before and will be a whole lot more practical for you up “intills” “uptnorth”. 😀

    Have your arms grown to reach the bottom of your pockets to pay for that lot??

    TK despite the ‘growth’ on the rear wheel (which I’m sure can be filed down) a lovely looking bike. What is it?

    i’m gonna do the same this year – ss 29er to geared (2×10 prob).

    but thats only cos i’m planning on entering the Trans Nepal 8)

    1×9, but the important part is that it’s rigid

    Pop was fine, found a new climb that was ace, a real grunter that went on for ages, I was a happy little bunny 😀

    Good luck on those fast but ‘optimistic’ tyres ! 😉

    I’ll let you know after my ride tomorrow how I find just having a single 32t ring at the front. My only concern will be those granny gear muddy rocky steep climbs we have up north. I’m hoping the 36 at the back will be enough to keep me going with a bit more grunt!

    went from SS to 8S, not too many gears for my thumb to hurt before I’ll get to the other end of a cog…

    Just got in after a 35 miler and found it brilliant. The 11t at the back, I found almost ample on the fast down hill bits and the 36t at the back a bit harder than normal compared to having a granny, but you just work harder and you get to the top of the hills before everyone else!
    Highly recommended!
