I've decided to pimp my singlespeed this year, to me the shonky aspect has always been a big part of singlespeeding but it is so much fun I think it deserves a half decent bike - not so expensive as to put me off trudging through the mud and rain but something a little nicer/lighter than my battered old inbred. So I was well impressed this week when I saw scandal inbreds for £135, finally got round to ordering one today - out of stock. Grrr. Ah well will have to go for something pimpier. I'm thinking of something like a whippet or a cotic soul - think I'll stick with vertical dropouts, I've heard horizontal can be a pain in the arse with disc brakes (refitting wheel after fixing flats out on the trail), plus if I'm paying a wedge for a frame the option of gears would be nice too. Will have to see how many pennies I can save up.
