- Singlespeed F/S bikes – show me yours please :D
After whinging about singlespeeding in the mud then briefly rebuilding my Blood which proved no easier with 8 more gears I now have a little Cove Hooker on the way and am quite keen to give F/S S/S a go again (I’ve owned a couple of Kona Cowan DS bikes in the past) so just ordered a Zinger tensioner from Superstar. I’m guessing I’d need a top guide up front too.

He he, go on, you know you want to. Flair looks good – quite a bit of travel for an S/S though.
When I pressed ‘buy’ for the Hooker I’d not given a thought to singlespeeding it – just fancied getting rid of everything (BMX and Blood frame are now sold and the lovely Sanchez frame will be hitting a well-known auction site later tonight) and replacing the lot with a do-it-all frame – but took the Sanchez out for a farewell blast this morning and figured I’m gonna miss singlespeed too much 😕Posted 5 years ago
That looks great Rick – perfect do-it-all bike right there! I’ve never owned a Howler (actually that’s not true – I bought one off ebay once but it turned out to be a 15.5 not a 15 and was quite a long frame so sold it on). Had a couple of Cowan DS frames though and a Dudu, hence the interest in the Hooker.Posted 5 years ago
Tensioner seems fine so far – I’m running a longer chain with not a massive amount of tension just to see how things go (looks like Rickos has his set up a little tighter) and I’ve run it all week without the front guide with no problems – seems pretty taut. I guess a top guide is a bit belt ‘n’ braces but hey, it keeps the oil off my furry Converses on the commute 😆Posted 5 years ago
