Just curious what are some higher-end geared bikes that have been converted to SS? Glad you did it? What was your SS build?
I converted an old Klein Rascal as my first SS. My next bike was a Lynskey TI SS built from the frame up extra light to climb with. How bout a nice 2011 specialized carbon SS frame to start with and maybe some ztr wheels with dt swiss 240 ss centerlock hubs and.......u get the picture.

how does starting with a dedicated ss frame equate to converting a geared bike? :confused:

I converted a 2004 GF Tassajara. It turned out very well. I also went all rigid and it climbs like a goat. I love passing up the high-end geared bikes on the hills. I just wave as I pass the fat guys huffing-and-puffing up the hills.

It might not be high end. 2008 Mamasita with a White Industries eno eccentric hub. I absolutely love it. I would definitely use both again.

Just finished but not ridden yet:



Build is a Wheelsmith SSK-1 spacer kit, Niner 19T cog, 32T Hellore Ti ring and a modified Rollenlager.

Glad I did it: Yes, it looks so much cleaner with no gears. Once the weather inproves I'll see if it rides as nice as it looks.
