As you can imagine, the 2015 Cyclocross Nationals brought all kinds of custom frame eye candy to town. Hidden in the fleets of Rock Lobsters and Stoempers are these blue “Singlebarrel” Mosaic XSS-1 singlespeed cross bikes. Built from True Temper tubing with Chris King, Shimano and ENVE rims, it’s not hard to spot one in the crowd of buzzing freewheels.
I bumped into Aaron from Mosaic and managed to get a few photos of his bike before the massive SSCX race took place yesterday. These bikes are lightweight, precision race machines and you can find out more about them by visiting Mosaic Cycles.
That’s a whole lotta bling for your buck. Disc, singlespeed cross bike with internal routing? I know cross season is almost over, but this Breadwinner Holeshot has my interest piqued. See more at the Breadwinner Flickr!
I’ve been digging what Blue Lug has been doing with their Rew10 Works framesets and Cook paintworks, but this singlespeed cross bike is my favorite thus far. Subtle splatter paint over the tan base color and a classy steel fork really do it for me. The disc front and canti rear is clever as well.

FYXO does FAUX pretty damn well, down to the rim decals. If you like cheekiness and clever flips, head over to FYXO for the full gallery on this Fauxnago!
First debuted at Interbike, State Bicycle Co’s new singlespeed off-road division is now available for pre-order with a mid-November delivery. Their affordable cross bikes are available with a Reynolds wheel upgrade – which is almost as much as the bike itself, or as frames to be built us to your specification. Blastin into the fat marketplace are two singlespeed fat bikes, one coming in under $500 with an admittedly fun coaster brake setup and another with disc brakes for under $700.

Ok. It’s Friday afternoon, you’re ready to roll. Here’s all the inspiration you need from All-City and Golden Saddle Cyclery.
Enjoy the weekend!
Yikes! This bike looks like a real ripper. Bryan from Royal H Cycles built up this exquisite singlespeed ‘cross bike for the Bike Cult show in NYC and it’s now available for sale. The price is $3500 as shown, with a 57cm seat tube and 56.5cm top tube (center to center). I think that’s a great price, especially for such a unique frame. I’m really loving the lugwork and paint detailing. See more at the Royal H Flickr.
Great work Bryan! If you’re interested, holler at Royal H Cycles.
Adam Sklar builds bikes in Bozeman, MT and this is his newest creation: a 29+ MTB with 430mm chainstays and a Fox 32 fork. I love medium format film for shooting bike portraits, especially with a backdrop like that.

I’ll admit, this bike should have been shot with a Kleen Kanteen, not a Purist, but Kyle doesn’t like rules, at all, so it’s fine.
This MB-1 came into Golden Saddle Cyclery around the time Kyle sold his Saluki, regrettably. We’ve all been there before, you’re in a bind and you’ve gotta part ways with one bike to make ends meet, but luckily for Kyle, he kept in alignment with Grant Petersen‘s ideologies.
Bridgestone’s MB-1 hit at a unique time in mountain biking. Dirt drops were in and rigid was the (only) way. For Kyle, this bike became his around-town singlespeed, opting for White Industries components and Nitto’s Bullmoose bars. Topped off with Rubena Cityhopper tires.
Matt just fired over some photos of his 2009 NAHBS RetroTec Cycles RetroFat SS, retrofitted with the new Whisky 70w Fat Tubeless Rims to Industry Nine hubs… the consensus? I dig it, especially the color, the Cambium and those Surly Nate gumwall tires.
I think it looks like a ton of fun and if you’re going to Saddle Drive this year, you’ll probably see it mobbing around.
