Default drop bar mikkelsen

yeah... i am posting her everywhere but i am in love. again. i have had this frame for 12trs already and lived 3 lives already. i always come back.
superb handling frame. feeling from the oversized prestige tubes is excelent. bernie mikkelsen did somehting good w/ this one.
fork is vicious.
it will be a singlespeed. there is no shifters already.
i want 180 cranks a pair of time atacs. i dunno if i use a tensioner or save for a eno wheel.

I'm a big fan of the Eno eccentric rear hub rather than a tensioner. I'm running two bikes with the eccentric with zero problems.

BTW, I never get tired of seeing this bike. She's a real beauty. Thanks for posting pics and ride report. You're experience with dropbars has me excited about finishing the build on my '85 Fat SS with an original set of WTB's.

thanks man,

i am loving the dirt drops. for singlespeeding it's perfect.

i have lots of rear wheels so i was tempted to stick a tensioner and go. seems the eno is far superior though. hmmm...
