Not only will my riding and shhifting be better. I have a bunch old old parts that I will be using on a single track. I was checking my inventory of used stuff in the shed and I found a few boxes of old parts from bikes I upgraded and don't even have anymore. So....my single-speed project will be under way in a few weeks when I have more time. I have the wheels, frame, brakes, headset, stem, handlebars, grips, chain, seat tube, saddle, crank, pedals, and bottom bracket. No my only delima is I may have to use a set of old school Indy Shox. I just don't have the spare cash for a rigid fork.
