  • Bought one of these for wheels firmly on the ground local pump track use. Will be running it Single Speed, mostly from my spares but bars & stem were donated by a neighbour when I told him my build plan, and the ztto headset the only one I could source at a price reflecting the project.

    Fork = Reba Race, Hope seatclamp, Hollowtech BB ready for old SLX crank.

    I have an old richey seat post that fits for holding slammed saddle, most likely use a charge spoon. On-one chain tensioner ready to go on too.

    I will need to source a rear brake, reckon avid bb7 best bet as I still have a few sets of compatible pads knocking about unopened. This would double project spend and push it into 3 figures.

  • I was always tempted by these frames. Looks ace.

  • yeah with some 26" wheels from the Superstar Sale you could do a bargain build.

  • Looks fun

  • One step closer... NOS ODI Ruffian, Ison Distro promo by look of it. Fiver.

  • Tidied up the old slx 9sp triple too, will be running it with that for now 1x with 32t upfront, assuming I can get chainline sorted.

    Any recommendations for a niceish hollowtech 1x upgrade to consider?

  • Might have a spare BB7 kicking around. Will try and remember to have a look tomorrow morning.

  • That would be brilliant if so, thanks. Cash money or beer available.

  • A week late, but would a ratty set of xt hydros work? May need bleeding, but might be knackered. I'm never going to bother doing anything with them.

  • That'd be ace to give them a try. I can swing by after work tomorrow, Weds, or Fri most likely (edit: I'll take it to WhatsApp)
