Midwest single-speed legend Pete Geigle developed the 1x1 Singleator so you single-speed virgins could taste the pure mountain biking experience without spending too much cash.
Installing horizontal dropouts on your frame can be difficult and/or expensive, particularly if your steed is of the aluminum variety. The Singleator mounts right up to your derailleur hanger and provides a simple, effective, and adjustable means of tensioning the excess chain slack found in vertical dropout single-speed drivetrains.
The Singleator features a triple-sealed spring, large cog capacity, chain guides, fully-adjustable chain line, floating pulley, and a stainless steel pivot bushing. The main body is forged, so it’s strong. We’ve gone with an 11-tooth pulley for smooth, quiet operation. And, it now works with both 1/8" (BMX) and 3/32" (geared bikes) chains. Beware impostors; the Singleator is the granddaddy and outperforms all others.
Though we’re a bike shop that sells, builds and fixes bicycles, they’re really just the means to an end; albeit a beautifully designed means to an idyllic end. Our job most importantly is to encourage as many people as we can to get out and ride for transport and enjoyment. We'd love to make riding a bike as commonplace as your morning cup of coffee, which by the way is our other obsession.
Bicycle Junction is situated at 1 Marion St, Te Aro, Wellington.
