  • Posted in thread: Single-speed wheel and chain issue on 02-11-2013 at 04:28 PM
    As it turns out, the wheel kept slipping on the drive side, and had nothing to do with how much
    tension I put on it. After a closer examination at the Bike Collective, we decided to try a
    grooved wash...

    Both of my single-speed conversions are running 42/16, the big difference between the two bikes
    is that I'm running 27's on the Centurion and 700's on the Peugeot. I haven't measured the
    crank lengths...

    Here are my thoughts. Instead of swapping for 700c wheels and tires, you might be able to get
    away with swapping tires and tubes for skinny 26" road tires. For a couple of years I ran Forté

    Ive never ridden out in the bay but im in the valley and no matter where I go its flat. The

    19lb is good enough for something with 700c wheels and a chain that won't snap. What are you
    getting them down to? I had an old steel Centurion with steel Weinmann rims (wish I'd saved
    them, now!) tha...

    It does feel nice to pick up a bike with just a pinky fingerI guess it depends on which bike
    you get or what frame and components you use. My steel-frame home builds are lighter than my
