Here's my Surly 1x1 singlespeed. It's kind of a wonky buildup right now, but that's because I picked it up on a trade. It's my first XC mountain bike in awhile, but it's not built as such. Rides like an 80s BMX cruiser with 26" wheels.

That looks pretty rad, are you putting on a suspension fork? Or keeping it rigid?

Id say find a taller rigid fork and ditch the stack, thats a mighty steep head angle.

Longer stem.

Plans are in the works. I'm getting some off-road drop bars by On-One, and I need to run the bars near saddle height, so I'm keeping the steerer long and getting a higher, longer stem.

Awesome SS. Good city bike/ commuter id imagine. Not too hard on the eyes either. Does the chain have a tight spot at all ?

I like it but even for XC I'd rather have at least a front disc brake. This is the Wet Coast, we have 2 seasons: winter and July. Chances are your rims are gonna get wet while riding and v-brakes don't work so good when this happens. I'd also get a taller fork like that other guy said, it looks really sketchy-steep right now. Longer stem too, unless you have short arms.

I'm happy to get outside and enjoy nature while I can, but I fear for the future of humanity

I don't live in BC, so I'm okay with rim brakes. And the bar setup is pretty temporary. I'm getting On-One Midge bars:

When I get them, I'm getting a much higher and longer stem because off-road drops need to be run around saddle height.

freakonaleash: There's no loose/tight spots. The chain tension is spot on.
