Malvern Star XCU Single Speed

Postby GWH74 » Mon Dec 23, 2013 6:57 pm

Hi Guys

Come across a picture of a Malvern Star XCU Single Speed but not much info as these were a 2012 model.
Has anyone see one of these?
I love one for a commuter project but can't find one or someone who has seen one.

Any other recommendations for a single speed urban bike with disc brakes besides Giant Seek?

Thanks

Gareth

You are unlikely to find a XCU SS, though it looks like a nice bike.

If you want a complete bike, then take a look at the Kona Unit. I often see them on special. Steel, rigid fork, BB7s. What's not to love? No provisions for a pannier rack though.. If you ride with a backpack, then the Kona is the money.

If you're willing to build up a bike, you can't go wrong with an On-One Scandal 29er Swap-Out Frame. Just order a rigid fork too. Again, no provisions for a pannier rack.

If you're willing to spend more coin, there are numerous belt drive single speeds about. They are rather expensive though.

What about a cheaper option of converting a second hand MTB to a SS?
