- Show your SS road bikes.
Just took posession of a Beer Components BB30 eccentric bottom bracket and plan to build a SS road bike using a Caad10 frame and donor parts from the bits vault.
I will update with the build progress, in the meantime I’d like to see what’s out there, be it road, cross, monster or anything else.

SS is for people who don’t have the balls to ride fixed.
Both of mine above were fixed. Fixed teaches you the skill of pushing a high cadence smoothly.
On the 1km of 7% downhill on my commute home my knees often wished I had ‘just’ a singlespeed 😀 When I finally accepted defeat, the gears went back on along with the freewheel.Posted 4 years agonedrapierSubscriber
Love that Salsa.
Here’s this one again. I put a cassette on the back for a Downs link + SDW ride, and it stayed on after we moved house and the commute got hillier. I really enjoyed riding SS, and I probably wouldn’t have bothered setting up my mtb SS without the experience. The commute now would be perfectly doable SS, but gears are too handy, and bar end shifters make swapping to SS and back a pain.
