    What for a 1-Speed?

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    What are the basics parts I need to build a simple 1-speed? I've been looking online for a while and haven't found much help yet.

    And are there good places to get bike frames for under $100? Maybe online?

    I've recently had a singlespeed commuter built from an old road frame and some parts I had. I did it partly because I was having trouble finding a bike that would fit. She came home on Wednesday and I love her. I was surprised at the number of components when I went through it with my bike shop. I've added the parts I had to the list we wrote out and here it is. Hope it helps.

    Frame and fork

    Bottom bracket

    Headset

    Wheels (or rims, hubs, rim tape and spokes if you want to build your own)

    Tyres and tubes

    Crankset

    chain

    Brakes and brake levers

    Bars + grips or bar tape

    Stem

    pedals

    spacers

    cables

    saddle

    seatpost

    Fixed sprocket
    Lockring
    Freewheel
    (All three if you want the option of fixed and freewheel, or you can just fit a freewheel if you're happy with a singlespeed)
