Wanted - Single Speed Mtb

Postby Hemp on Sat 25th Mar 9:41pm

After my last SS got stolen just before XMAS (refer thread below) I'm looking for a new (2nd hand) single speed MTB. Happy to consider just about anything but prefer a dedicated SS (no tensioner or derailer). Have been looking at Kona units, Avanti Kiss, Surly KM, on one blah blah blah. Located in Christchurch but will pay transport for a good bike. Hemp

Thanks for the heads up guys. If I can find one with 29 inch wheels that would be my preference. Cheers

Hey, I have a Spot Longboard 29'er, it's an 18" but pretty roomy and I find it a good fit at 6'1". I can't get a photo to upload so if you PM me your email I can send one through.

It's steel frame, Kona P2 fork, front wheel is a DT Swiss hub and rim with the 9mm solid release (branded Specialized), rear is a bolt on Surly hub with ACS freewheel and Salsa Delgardo rim, Deore brakes, On-One headset, Bontrager Big Earl cranks, Raceface seatpost, Truvativ Team stem, Easton carbon bars and currently on Continental 2.2 (from memory) Race Kings. Chain is new, stainless 33t chainring and 20t freewheel for decent all round gearing.

I really like it, it's lots of fun and so light compared to my other bikes but it's just not getting used enough to justify keeping it.

It's in Wellington but I can box it nicely and send.

My on-one inbred could be up for grabs, it's running 2 x 9 at the mo but was an SS for a goodly while, not dedicated but. It's med but rides pretty big, I'm 6'. It's got some noice bits on it. PM me if you are interested. I'm in Ch-Ch.
