- Schwinn Homegrown (retro) singlespeed build – rigid and very light!
20″ Schwinn Homegrown frameset built into a lightweight single speed as follows:
Salsa Cro-moto rigid forks
M750 XT v-brakes, chain set
DT Hugi 240 hubs on Mavic rims (superb lightweight wheels with a fab sounding free hub!)
16t singlespeed cog and Velosolo spacer kit
Using a rear mech as a tensioner (I only recent discovered the cable set up method for a rear mech like this and I have to say it’s miles better than any of the ss tensioners I’ve used in the past – very smooth running!)
Easton CT2 carbon flat bars
Easton EA50 stem (90 mm – also have a 120mm Titec stem if you prefer)
White Sele Italia SLR saddle (lots of scuffs, etc but a nice perch all the same)
New Schwalbe tyres
The frame is a large but I’m only 5’9″ and a bit and it suits be although better for 5’10” plus.
It weighs under 20lbs and is a perfect set up for winter – I’m only selling as I need to get a winter road bike built up and I’m on a strict one in, one out policy at the moment!
I’m looking for £250…..
The pic below shows it in a different, geared spec & showing the Titec stem & a different saddle, but gives you an idea of what I’m talking about….let me know if you need updated pics and I’ll sort later today…..
