building a SSMTB (with chain tensioner) commuter for my partner, looking for a frame or a complete to build off of, you know the type, rockhopper/stumpjumper/raleigh type of thing, steel, pref with mudguard + rack mounts.
can collect within reasonable distance of e17 or happy to pay postage.
pm'd re bmx
I'll give it another go next weekend then, but I'll be riding up the canal and going early morning. Hopefully it'll be palatable.
If not I'll bite the bullet and buy a bmx to fuck around (read: break myself) on the local pump track.
rode from walthamstow up to pole hill yesterday and turned around even though I'd planned for more because of a massive sense of humour failure from the utter slop it all was and the swathes of people out (my fault, sunday late morning).
anyone know if it's any more rideable further into the forest?
Cheers mate, been sorted now.
Ideally 6 bolt, for use on a commuter / mtb / functional-ish thing.
Can collect in (a reasonable radius of walthamstow) London, don't mind postage if that's better though.
Had to wipe off the Epping dust in order to put it on.
I've got one of these, in good nick, can PM photos if you want. £75?

This is exactly what I wanted to hear. Thanks folks.
Thinking of going to swinley for the first time next month, how are the red trails for a rigid 29er?
@tuttonp - easy to deal with, fast delivery and item as expected.
out of interest, if you're moving the stuff over from the dawes how come you're not going cantilever? seems to solve the problems you're trying to solve with direct mount.
Looks to be standard GXP afaik - it's self extracting so 10mm is for the outer cap bit and 8mm is for the bolt which goes into the axle.
So basically this but from somewhere with it in stock: https://www.sjscycles.co.uk/chainsets/sram-crank-arm-bolt-m15-m26-alloy-selfextracting-gxp-black/

Moved stuff over from my kona unit to genesis fortitude 2021 yesterday and took to local bmx track. Chopping steerer, dropper post, new front wheel and new brakes are next on the list for this.
Oval ring on single speed feels a little odd but looking forward to more rides on this.
-- no longer needed --
New frame+fork and need to fit 1 1/8" headset, star nut and crown race (can do crown race with screwdriver and hammer if no one has). Am higham park area but happy to travel a bit. will bring your preference of beer / wine / soda.
yeah, an aesthetic shoe they are not. Reckon any approach shoe with sticky rubber would work well tho. I hike / run / scramble / mtb in them so I don't mind the anti look too much.
I have a pair of the five ten access knit shoes that I use for mtb. good all around shoe, originally bought as an approach shoe but works well on flat pedals. I wear them day to day too, good if you don't want something hyper specific to riding mtb.
I have a kona unit in size 19in, but it's a little too small, meaning I can't get a 27.2mm dropper long enough for it, so planning to replace frame and move everything else across.
looking for 20.5in/52cm+ seat tube, 29er, 135mm qr, threaded bb.
long time passed, but yeah this is mine! Best commuter ever.
Anyone used mudhugger / fathugger guards? I commute on my 650b+ as well as a bit off offroad and want something to keep the mud off front + rear better than my current clip on SKS ting.
