A couple of stylish & versatile geared/singlespeeds, New Mexico bound.
Lyn’ s Fifty-Five is ready for racing, primarily as a singlespeed, but has geared capability. It’s lightweight but sturdy enough to take a beating.
The three bottle mounts accommodate large bottles- not always an easy task when building a smaller frame size.
Good tire clearance allows for high volume tires.
And the curry color looks darned good, doncha think?
We experimented with different decal color options- the curry powdercoat plays surprisingly well with a wide range of color.
Rita’s ride is a full 26″ Hydra- set up primarily for geared use, but with singlespeed capability. She’s building it up awith a Sid fork & a pair of Crank Brothers Cobalt wheels. The fit & geometry is optimized for versatile use- everything from singletrack to cruising around town hauling the kiddo in the bike trailer.
The Ahrens sliding derailleur hanger is just the right item for this setup…
I was really pleased with the way the decals turned out… a good match for the wheels.
