    I had an iO rigid but then stuck a set of Recon 351 on it. Now I can hit stuff faster than my legs will go so the rigids might go back on.

    Yep, I have. It’s got 20″ wheels as well.

    Yep. ’92 Kona Lava Dome running original P2s and converted to SS using a DMR tensioner.

    Just need to rebuild the BB (adjustable cup) and it’ll be back in action.

    That could be a lot worse qwerty, but you do need to get rid of the dock leaves. 🙂

    I’ve got a Kona Explosif of around 2005, the one with the slidey drop-outs. Not ridden it much in the last year due to a back op but used it round Thetford last week and had a great time on it.
    Think I will be out on it a little more now.
    No pics I’m afraid, only when it has those suspension fork things on it – lol.

    Classifieds special here.
    2nd Merlin frame, Superstar carbon forks plus bits from the shed.
    The forks, stem and chainring bolts are the only new parts on it.

    It makes a nice contrast with my main bike (5″ forked hardtail).

    I’ve also got a fixed Pompino with ‘cross tyres on but that’s a whole different ball game 🙂

    Had one for years, now building a singlespeed 456 Summer Edition with Talas 36.

    Waiting on a couple of parts to finish the conversion of my 19 year old steel Fisher. (pics to follow, once complete)

    Anyone got a rigid ss in their ‘fleet’?

    I started with ss’ing my 93 kona explosif, then got a cheap on-one inbred (slot dropout) with carbon forks, which has been great fun and nearly indestructible.

    For mountain mayhem i swapped the forks and ss bits onto my geared tinbred, which was amazing, very light and fast and still comfortable with an amazing degree of control with the rigid forks. I was zooming round the mayhem course, and our team ended up 2nd ss and something like 15th overall!

    Now keeping an eye out for a singlespeed tinbred frame so i can do it ‘properly’ 🙂

    Have this, to be honest after the intial wow this is cool, I got a bit disheartened with it. Just such hard work to get anywhere and I’m such a lazy fecker. Really good for quick blastes on mid week night rides, but thats about it. Still looks cool though

    Rode one years ago, though my ‘single’-speed bikes usually had two chainrings and a rear mech tensioner for on-/off-road or climbing / everything else use.

    Don’t think my back would stand for a true singlespeed these days unless it was pretty flat. I tried 1×8 speed too, but found the chain was always falling off the chainring without some sort of device to keep it in place.

    Yeah. A 94′ Orange Clockwork with Pace forks. Goes really well.

    Yup. It’s pretty crap on anything bumpy in comparison with modern bikes IMO. Might try some carbon forks.

    Yes though for the summer it’s wearing a set of Pace RC40 forks

    It’s not built because I took it apart a couple of years ago and never re-built it, but I have a rigid fixed wheel mountain bike. The frame was built by a mate who was going into frame building, and is the same geometry as my rigid ’94 Zaskar. I really must re-build and ride it.

    I’ve got an ’09 Genesis iO – it was too good to stay rigid though and I had a set of Fox Floats kicking about so on they went – those cheap 520 Genesis frames are wicked fun!

    Felt Nine Solo with White Bros forks. My favourite bike, did most of my laps at Mayhem this year on it even though I had a perfectly good geared HT with me as well.

    I’ve a rigid singlespeed Inbred and a rigid singlespeed Solitude. They’re my only off-road capable bikes. Apart from one run down the skills loop at Hamsterley on a borrowed Kona Stinky, I’ve somehow still not got around to having a go on a bike with any suspension.

    Here’s my Inbred on the way up to Hamsterley yesterday:

    And here it is on the way back:
