    Following safety, reliability and performance, my next highest priority is hiding my electronics. Here is what I am trying to hide and the battery box that hides it:

    I have Master Links on my SRAM chains, and the hand tools made for such eliminate a lot of frustration:

    This handy tool holds the chain in place while you do your thing:

    I just went out to see how fast I could pedal the bike. I did a burst with the highest cadence I could produce, and I got up to 7 mph.

    With sustainable cadence, I could ride up to 6 mph.

    That is a sweet find! I will put those on my list!

    Wow this is all looking really good, now that's a bike I would feel confident riding at speed knowing it's not going to fall apart. Do those huge tires absorb bumps and rocks off-road? To be honest I've never ridden tires bigger than 2.5 except on my enduro motorcycle but it of course has a lot of suspension.

    It's too bad Lawill Leader forks don't fit fat bikes, I could imagine a set of those on one of those frames might look nice and ride pretty good off road.

    When I was assembling with the Singleator today, the SS pulley bushing fell on the garage floor, and I almost couldn't find it. What do you mean by a sealed bearing? I might not be so lucky if the pulley bushing falls on the floor again.

    I put my Surly Singleator on the other day just for a look and saw there was no clearance. I was thinking of a flat head with an Allen but this may better. I am thinking of adding a sealed bearing to the rig.

    With that small chainring, I can imagine it's on the low side.

    This was after the first test ride. The gearing is very low.

    Final chain setup. I removed 10 links from a new chain.
