This is what happens

…when you force a singlespeeder to ride a geared full suspension bike until he gets off his lazy butt and builds himself a new singlespeed.

That’s right. 1×5, bitches. I have a mighty 15-30 “cassette”, paired with a 34t ring. Sweet. I might change it to a 15-34 if I wimp out and can’t handle the hills. The MRP chainguide thingy is pretty cool (light, seems bomproof, not stupid expensive), though it’s a huge pain to set up. I don’t know what their idea of a 50mm chainline is, but I’m pretty sure it’s not the same as what my LX cranks think.

Of course, this all assumes I am actually healthy enough to ride sometime soon. I’m hoping this weekend.
