Default A wicked Wicked

Here is a wicked that I did up this week.It was a bit of a basket case. cracked seat tube under the seat collar,rust pinholes at the bottom of the seat tube,The good thing is There was hardly any sparkling when we welded the pin holes. " fingers cross " it should be a super fun townie bike for sure.

I like it a lot! Thanks for posting. I have been harboring fantasies about refurbing and single-speeding my old warhorse Wicked.

Did you do an eccentric rear hub? Sounds like you kept with the standard bottom bracket. . .

Yeah, I had a white eno hub kicking around the store so I lace it up during lunch. The eno hubs are the way to do it rather than use a singulator. You pay a little more up front with no hassles down the road. Go for it!!!!!
