The Origin 8 Paladin has a BB30, so one could get the eccentric adapter that Problem Solvers makes and convert that frame, (or any BB30 carbon frame could ostensibly be converted), to an single speed.

Yep, Lots of BB30PF Carbon Frames out there that can be used as SS.
meh
EBB is bad enough as it is without a Problem Fixer rig. Any carbon bike could be run SS with a tensioner or WI Eccentric ENO... something tells me that's not what he's after... me neither. ;)

Yeti BigTop has a carbon rear triangle so it rides like a carbon bike but isn't as light. If unique, sliders, compliance and price are all major factors, give it a look;)

I've heard nothing but good reports from riders using the Beer Components BB30 EBB, and I believe there is enough room that you shouldn't have to use half-links either. Raleigh will be selling a production SS cross bike for 2012 that uses an FSA model of the same thing.

IMHO BB30/PF30 EBBs are more similar to tapered headsets for 44mm headtubes: not so much a conversion but a different way to make good use of the same frame.

Oh, so now you are getting specific? :D

So...out with it. What exactly would you want?
what i want is a damn Lurcher... ever! :D

...or at least the option to e-ride it.

dreaming:
ss'able (without the problem "solver" thingamabiddle) Kona King Kahuna (yes I've let them know my feelings... a few times :D )

if these guys don't get their act together i may end up on a moots, lynskey, or by:stickel. I'd go local and get on the list for a True Fab, but I fancy the fancy metal... you know how it goes.

of course, there's nothing wrong with my Juice... i love the hell out of it... i just keep my eye on the prize, if you know what i mean. ;)

requisite pr0n:

Nicely pimped Juice! :thumbsup:

Ever thought about Alchemy Bicycles in Austin, TX? (I heard from a "horses mouth" that Wes Williams wields the torch there now.)

meltingfeather, sweet ride. I hope you don't get passed up too much on that. I know the SETTE Carbon would need a tensioner but that is a sweet deal on PricePoint. $900 or so?

$799.98

To be precise. I am done with Carbon frames, but that is a deal. I don't know the quality though.
