Singlespeed: Thats better
Yeah so posted my SS CX bike a week ago or so, here. Well, its more "done" now. New stem, Cinelli Grammo. Also added a homemade chain tensioner, new brake pads, via Helvetia Sports, the Swisstop Rats.
The rear wheel is new too, redished and respaced to be used singlespeed. I still need to glue it on, its in the strech process.
I think it looks a lot better, and with the homemade chain tensioner, I can run various chainrings and cogs without strife.
btw---20.7 lbs total.
BUT....The wheels are pretty light. My old training clinchers weighed 2950 grams total (wheels, tires, tubes, gear, skewers)
This new pair weigh 2262 grams (1.51 lbs lighter)!! Thats a lot.
note: front tubular not shown in pictures above.
