Currently my Doctahawk is representing every colour available to the point that I'm starting to add on parts that clash horribly

Piccys???  I love Chromags of every flavour.

Pre work post lean

Edit - i'm still going round in circles re headset space colour.  I've tried blue, silver and now onto pink - maybe just keep them black and be done with it.  Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I’d go with black - but then I seem to buy bikes with very brightly coloured frames and only fit them with black components.

Is that a fun commute or getting a ride in before work? 🤘

It's a fun commute.  About 4 miles from home to the office with maybe 3 miles of it off road.  The last mile is big old gravel bash with 90m drop (not so great on the way home).

FTFY 

Marty, pink. Or a mix of silver and pink if you have smaller ones.

The pink is growing on me.

Ditto 30mm of spacers and a 50mm rise bar.

Stache got its winter conversion to SS over Thanksgiving. Best part is that I can take the chain off without breaking the link to re-wax it.

Looks great! I've always been Stache-curious. Those chainstays look so short with 29+ tires.

Had a 2017 but it cracked while it was in Whistler and Chromag gave me a discount and switched everything out while loaning a Lowdown. Thanks Chromag

Love this bike, everything else was on hand or bought used. Loving the Butcher - eliminator combo.

Only 70x12 Ergotec.  Probably lots of custom options but £££.

I have the Ergotecs now. I also have this one. https://www.wildebikes.com/products/cardinal-bar

But I have been running some 20deg backsweep bars on my single speed and love them. They have too much rise for my main bike. Maybe I have to hit up Doom Bars.

SS hardtailer speculators: Gearing of 32-22 correct for steep climbing (Old Buck, No Quarter)?

Anybody ever dinglespeed (two rear cogs)? I'd use the bike for rolling around town for errands too, thinking a putting on an additional...cog 16t(?) for that.

This is what I'm interested in... partly to measure myself against others (which I know essentially makes me a POS 😬) but also to see what others are coping with depending on their terrain. 

I don't know the technicality of the trails you mentioned but my local loop has a paved path/dirt fire road in it that is 2.5km long that is pretty consistently 10-12% grade (aside from a couple of short "rests")....

I'm barely coping on 32:18 (with 27.5 rear wheel and clips) and am veering between hoping it makes me stronger and going down to a 20t cog so I'm not so reliant on the clips.
