I missed last years BO9 and wished I hadn't as I had so much fun in BO8, so I am in again this year. Though I have only built musclebike-rats in the past, it really isn't practical for a 6'1", 265lb man to be pedalling around on a 20" bike (think a bear on a unicycle), so I have been accumulating 26" parts for the past few years to build a nice single speed cruiser for myself. I may not finish as I work a tonne, and when I'm not working I try to spend time with my beautiful wife and 2 year old son, but I'm going to give it a shot. The plan is to strip the paint off the frame and forks and do a copper/red combo colour scheme. The build itself is going to be very basic as I have slowly gathered each part in mind for this one build. The head tube will have to be cut down 1/4" inch to accommodate the fork properly, and the fork/dropouts will have to be tinkered with to fit the wheels. Other than that, all I need is some pedals, a chain, and a heavy-duty layback seatpost which I plan to purchase from slowriderz.
