It was not my first singlespeed. It is my fist fixed gear bike. It is like a 1985 steel framed pig that seems to take a lot of abuse. craigslist hooked me up for 50 bucks. Such a deal. Add some wheels off of eBay and some parts around the shop and it turns out to ride real nice like.
a while ago, I built a one-off wheel with a TomiCog, an old Deore XT front disc hub, a wheelsmanufacturing solid axle
and the rim from the original rear wheel off ebay. Super strong.
