Nice one, Jase. Subtle stealth... if that isn't a tautology :oops:

A matter of personal taste I realise; but those funny Cannondale rear dropouts always remind me of a limb that's been broken and not properly splinted and then healed all out of shape.

I saw one of these frames at the Sunshine Coast alleycat yesterday, looked super cool in the flesh, especially with deep carbon rims.

The tiny bike shop that served as the start/finish had some leader frames hanging up, looking at their website I wouldn't mind one of these...

Yeezus! With clearances like that, surely someone would think up some way of having the rear tyre self-clean the BB spindle & bearings.

Here is my Raleigh I turned into a single speed, 2nd week commuting and love being back on an SS.
Gearing is 46/16 with a Gusset SS conversion in a Shimano RS20 wheetset.mI'm not going to put bar tape on as I like the chrome clean look on the bars.

Tastefully done. You might change your mind on the bar tape in the first wet ride you do though.

That's nice :D

What brake levers you rocking there Kwai? Look slicker than the usual suspects...

It's true it's my Roobaix spoke card... Is it not permitted to have such a thing on a singlespeed?
What have I done?

Hey Mate they are Tektro TL720 levers. Yeah I think they look quite nice and work well.

The RX5.0 look pretty slick too although I think the TL720 have a little more style...

Thanks Kwai. :D
The RX 5.0 and its ally mates were the suspects I was thinking of, do absolutely nothing for me. Those TL720s have me considering a bullhorn conversion on the Reid Harrier now. Should be no problem with the SRAM Rival brakeset... 8)

Yeah the look the goods and have nice feel.
I've got them matched to a pair of high end Tektro dual pivots and the braking is sensational really pleased with it.

I picked mine up for $35 but no doubt if you looked hard enough there are probably better prices to be had online...
