- Show me your SS lurchers
Mines really only an over specced commute machine so doesn’t get to go off road and it’s seriously over tyred with big apples.
But it’s light and comfortable to ride…. I had a whippet before which is also nice but not as comfy, I’ve put about 3.5 to 4k miles on it no complaints other than the bb which can get a bit creaky.
I reckon you could make a real fun lighweight SS it does steer an ride nice.
I think I paid about £250 for frame an £100 for fork which I thought was pretty goodPosted 3 years agomark88Member
Just built up mine with 2×10 and Rebas. Moving from an Anthem it feels light and stiff. Only been out on it once but it climbs brilliantly and doesn’t feel any worse than the Anthem on the descents.

Cheers mudplugga used my trusty screwdriver and hammer. Popped out the bb and put the spacer in and fresh grease noise gone 😉
Strangely I did the drive side added spacer but left non drive as it was a bit stuck and it was quieter but still there so I hit harder and got it out and jobs a good un. So not sure if it needed spacer or grease
Uk people seem to say no spacer but seems all usa lot add spacer.Posted 3 years agobigshepSubscriber
