    uh-oh, that is what started the need for the adjustment. My son dumped it on the derailleur side and it started shifting goofy. I did look at it and all seemed well, but I will put a keener eye on it this evening and report back. :deal

    I posted a single speed I built a few pages back. Now I need another project.
    Bought a Ross with Cr-Mo main tubes at a pawn shop for $ 30 to become my next victim. Will post pics of the transformation.

    Also check b tension, if it is too tight you will get some weird issues. A worn chain will not shift well either.

    :-) in my particular stage of life, personal projects move slow. I've like 20 of them going on simultaneously.

    This is the same bike in white, for road and gravel orientated training - it is only 9,3 kilos in this setup :-)

    And this is a bike in a setup when we are doing our Around the world trip, so far 35 countries and counting - 32.000 kilometers, only the frame, seatpost and the wheels are original, everything else gets replaced and upgraded as it wears down :-) not bad for an 8 year old bike :-)

    Why a single speed?
    I never quite understood the reasoning, besides weight reduction and reliability.
    Here in the hills of Pgh, it'd kick my arse to be on a single or fixie

    I would just go and replace the hanger in that case. Aluminum doesn't like to be bent back and I'd worry about messing up the bolts and frame threads. And pick up a spare for next time.
