And the fork goes nicely with the Ti Record post, Athena brakes, Record Crankset!

It really needs a better headset, but the $12 Ritchey one was spare.

It's a mix of parts I had lying about, so including the paint, it's cost me under $100. It's near double the weight of the Parlee, but that's the idea.

My other singlespeed, the Soulcraft got new King Ti cages tonight, a new Blackspire ring, and is likely to get a Marzocchi 44 and new front hub shortly (15mm).


Mmmm…I’d get up on that :D

It's probably a little nice for true 'lock it up on the street' commuter duties, but will be a much better option for taxi dodging, bunny hopping and shenanigans than a superlight Parlee that I can't afford to replace.
That looks mighty nice, Musket. I hope the brakes are Left / Front, Right Rear, otherwise Oli'll have the magnifying glass out looking for an opportunity for a caning...
