- Rigid SS – who has got one?
Built this one this week, my first singlespeed.
A long shot maybe, but does anyone have an old square taper Race Face forged crank they’d like to sell me (non drive side)? I dug out an old pair that had been in the shed for 8 years only to find a crack one the end.

Yes.. a Surly 1×1 with RC31s… both getting on by STW standards. TBH as it is uber large it looks like a gate and really is not that inspiring to look at but it is sooo nice to ride.
It is my winterbike/ night ride bike/ occasional summer race bike though for some reason this year it has only peeped out of the shed once or twice.
….and if we are counting road bikes a Giant Bowery (I think that is what it is called.Posted 8 years agospeaker2animalsSubscriber
Wanga with Pace RC31. Ace, my most used bike. Rarely get out the Intense Spider and only use the Road Bike when appropriatte. Really can’t put my finger on why I like it so much. Just feels right somehow, no retro grouch posturing or anything. I was amazed in the summer took mate out on a local loop up a long farm road/bridleway. Totally forgot how steep it was as hadn’t ridden it in probably 8 years. Looked at it rising up in front of us and thought I was in for a long walk. Instead had a long wait at top for my mate as he twiddled up in the granny ring. Technique I think plays as big a part as brute strength. And mind set too.
Wouldn’t use it in the lakes or Peak unless I knew the route before hand but on the right ride it’s flinkin ace Bobby!Posted 8 years ago
