Default Yo rebuild Single speed

It's been raining here and can't ride so started the winter rebuild project a little earlier then planed. Tore down the Yo and inspected, seat tube and bottom bracket shell look clean no rust or pitting. Scratches and dings from many years of use but over all in good shape. Old XT 7 speed and thumb shifters will go, the Gravity research brakes and cranks will stay with the single speed build out.

Looks like a great base to build from, Puddy. What type of set up are you going with for chain tension? I have had great success with a White Ind Eno Eccentric rear hub with my Bro SS.

Default After some delays the painter rocked it

Just picked up the finished paint from Hot Tubes. Toby and Jordan did a great job. Now trying to figure out the headset color. I have a Chris King red but thinking either the classic black or possibly gold with the stem being painted the match the blue of the Auqua fade.
