  • Show me your single speed cross bike!
  • I am going to be building an SSCX bike so give me some inspiration!
    Road rat is my thought currently but may be tempted otherwise.

    Is it for CX racing or commute, JRA, pub etc?

    My Kaffenback is great for all but racing, and they are well cheap. New frames look nice too.

    The new Kaffenback’s have vertical dropouts, so you can’t easily run them single speed.

    Which is one reason why I’m now the owner of a Surly Cross-Check….


    I’ve had a Surly Cross Check, and run a Singular Pergrine SS.

    Both heavyish for proper racing

    These before they went disc were much lighter. I may get one for next year.

    Really it is just to be hardcore. Riding trails with 35c knobblies on, I have my heart set on steel for whatever reason, want something that could be upgraded to discs but that I can use all my current road spaced wheelsets on.

    The rat would do all that I ask of it and have the potential to become a commuter, tourer, 1×10 hack bike, the lot.


    THE original pompino, sadly gone now.

    Ti pompino which I loved but only nestled between my legs for a few weeks.

    New pompino….Sweetest looking bike I ever owned. Rode like a bitch.

    Current bike, Genesis day-one. Great bike, brakes of death.

    I quite like singlespeed cross bikes, you can probably tell.

    Oh, and it has to be fixed.


    I’ve got the same white Pompino frame as that one just up there… makes me sad seeing one look as good (and clean!) as that, mine is in full on theftproof mess mode.


    Oh, and this one.

    My old Day One, now back from the shed-wall bike-grave. Rode it loads a few years ago, then not at all for 2yrs +. Now gets used as a weekend bivi-biker. I even go looking for trendy gravel roads on it.

    Mine last year.

    Do flat bar fixies count?

    I’ll get my coat…

    PS. I don’t think that the Roadrat would tick the “Hardcore Trails” or “Tourer / Commuter” boxes.


    My retro mtb/cx mash up

    Jurys still out on the midge bars though,like the look of them cannot make my mind up on the positioning the drops feel to wide,flared and not long enough.


    Built with a W.I. Eccentric Eric hub for riding North london / Hertfordshie / Essex trails year round, and the odd race:

    Sadly got rebuilt with queers to get me up Cowcombe Hill on my commute:

    And a baboons bum in a tree…
