Hope to have it ready to roll by end of summer. First steel mountain bike for me since like 1992.

I have an old Trek Cro Mo bike.
I'm afraid it's true..."Steel is Real"...
It has a wonderful feel that an aluminum bike still doesn't reproduce.
That being said, I still love my San An and other aluminum bikes.

Pic of my old crank

Made some progress. All i need now is a chain and to build up a rear wheel.
Old cranks come in handy and the fork that should not be.
Nice sticker on seat post.
Anxious to get SS on the trails again. Plus, i have to show NORRIS how it's done:eekster: (if you know what i mean.:winker: )

Dude that things badass!

I'll loan you my old LTS rear wheel, throw some SS conversion spacers on the freehub body, get a cog and a chain and your in business. I'll even give you an old 8spd. chain I have laying around if you need one, it's still in good shape even. You can ride it this Sat. at BC and school me a bit... cuz someone needs to show me how it's done before I embarass myself.

Single speeds are all the rage these day dont cha know?

Didn't go for the rigid eh? What, you like your wrists or something?
Yeah, and feel like keeping my teeth.

alfine or rohloff? NO , just a surly flipflop with freewheel.

Looks good dude. I decided not to use the frame I originally planned on using for my SS build. When I get a few bucks to spare I'll get something.
