Single Speeding



















I know I'm due for a proper write up of my Colossi CX Max, but here's a sneek peek of the single speed set up using a freecycled Corima rim built on an eBay special Royce hub with BMX 18 tooth sprocket and hack-sawed XTR 960 cranks.. I'll be the first to admit this rather unusual set up has had one or two teething problems, but I'm almost there now, and have since been rewarded with some new PBs on my commuting climb times. And yea, there's just something quite right about steel bikes with one gear.
