- Those odd cravings – New bike wants – Surly 1×1
Apart from dabbling in the retro “scene” I almost exclusively ride 29ers.
They make sense to me but this isn’t a wheel size thread 😆
For a long time I have wanted one of these:
A simple 26” Surly 1×1 – With Dirt Wizards
I have no need for it but it really appeals.
Any others suffer from these odd cravings?
Might have one built before my Puffin too 😉Posted 3 years agoslowjoMember
I had one of those a few years back. It rode really nicely especially around Thetford and the environs. The problem came when I decided 34:15 was a good ratio. I hated it, persevered and then sold it. I could easily have changed the gearing but life had moved on by then and after many years of riding a SS I decided I needed to give gears a try again.
I kind of miss it….and then again I don’t.Posted 3 years agoepicycloSubscriber
Jamiedyer has a nice 1×1 with Dirt Wizards.
Mine is somewhat scruffier (but it is a 1998 model 🙂 )
The extra volume of the Dirt Wizards makes for a really nice ride for a rigid bike, and the grip is confidence inspiring. It’s good enough for me to be using it as my default summer bike while a couple of nice 29ers sit unused.Posted 3 years agojonathanSubscriber

Had that one nearly 10 years, had another for a few years before that. Still pretty much my favourite bike 🙂Posted 3 years ago
