Excellent for winter riding in the wet!
Front: bottle-mudguard in fluorescent pink for extreme visibility at night!
Gearing is 32:17 which is good on slight climbs, and out of the saddle workouts on longer climbs but still to low on flats or slight declines.
May drop down to 16 on the back...not sure how much difference that would make.
Considering going to 1/2 link bmx chain to lose the chain tensioner don't now if that would work either. Anyone?
A long time ago we converted our scale 40 to a single speed. Now running 44/16 with slicks as the commute bike.
Got home after a very ordinary day at work, and look what was waiting for me
'Tis a Spot Rocker 29er belt drive single-speed. First time for me on both a 29er and a singlespeed.
The weather looks promising for the weekend, although unfortunately the Dam is probably still going to be too wet. Once I've had a couple of rides by myself to get used to the thing, I'll probably organise a Show and Tell ride for those who might be interested.
Thanks to K-Rudd, I've finally been given the green light to get a new bike for my bumpy work commute. After much deliberation, I've decided to go with a Charge Duster SS: http://www.chargebikes.com/products/bikes/detail.php?id=6
I would like a little bit of help please, to decide on what gear ratio to use so that I can get the right chainring sorted.
