All-City Introduces the JYD Singlespeed Frame
All-City_JYD Frame-03

The JYD frame. The ultimate around town, take the bum trail to your favorite bar, street or dirt ready shred sled. It’s simple, fun and yep, singlespeed.

Jeff from All-City has been talking about doing this frameset for some time now. He wanted to call it the “Junkyard Dog”, but went with JYD instead.

Segmented fork, threaded BB and yes, canti studs, clearances for a monster 29’r tire, gussets, fender mounts, you name it, the JYD is ready for it… all for $550 frameset.

Absolute Black’s New Singlespeed Cogs – Made in the EU
cogs

Absolute Black not only has one of the best names, they claim to have the best singlespeed cog. Designed in the UK and manufactured in Poland, these cogs offer up quite the blast beats for your buck. As far as I can tell, they’re the first people to adopt and adapt SRAM’s “narrow wide” tooth to a singlespeed cog, which seems like a no-brainer for cross.

These beastly cogs fit Shimano freehub bodies, offer up a thick, 7mm base to prevent freehub damage and are constructed from cnc machined 7075 Txxx Aluminum, with a steel option on the way for the bigger riders.

18t is in stock for $39 with 16t and 20t on back-order until the 25th of June.

See more at Absolute Black and praise the Necronomicog.

Thanks for sharing this, Chris!

I’ve done this before. Your front tire gets shredded and all you have laying around is a red-backed Vittoria Randonneur. The difference is, I never took a second to document it. Nice one Walton! See more of the Walt’s world at his Tumblr.
