- What SS frame?
Am thinking of the options for a nice, but not too expensive SSpeed frame to run rigid or around a 1200mm fork – a regular frame that would SS with a magic gear would also be lovely …. obvious suspects would be a Simple, Sanderson etc but considering trying the Singular Hummingbird.. on a wet evening in, I could do with some ideas 🙂Posted 8 years ago
You could do much worse than the Haro 650B singlespeed, a complete bike for around £500. 650B is a perfect wheel size for average size riders, better rolling than a 26er, but not as heavy to get up to speed as a 29er. Bike proportions look better, too. 650B is just the old standard 27 1/2" wheel brought up to date; I had those size wheels on my first grown-up bike, a BSA Star Rider. If I could fit them, I'd have 650B wheels on both my hardtails, but the wishbone stays won't allow it.Posted 8 years agoShackletonSubscriber
If you want to 69 then you could try a Carver bike or a Hummingbird. Cheap too and I think the Carver dealer lurks on her (manchester trev). I had a love/hate until a week ago and loved it. I'm now awaiting the delivery of a singular swift. But if you want cheap then you can't fault the on-one frame fork combo.Posted 8 years agofirestarterSubscriber
lots to choose from at decent prices. Ive had inbred . Fisher rig. Singular swift all lovely bikes that ride well. Also had an inbred set up as 69er very nice too. Currently waiting deliver on a surly karate monkey been wanting one for ages 🙂 bang for buck tho id get a used rig as you can pick em up cheap as so long as you dont mine big wheels. Other than that the haro 650b looks a good bet 🙂Posted 8 years agoJRTGMember
