Steel Single Speed Bike Bikes

My first mountain bike race as a teen was on a single speed. The bike was a 24-inch cruiser, complete with platform pedals and BMX handlebars, which tipped the scales at over 30 pounds. Thankfully, single speeds have come a long way since then. DeSalvo single speeds are light, efficient, and a blast to ride. If you’ve been on a single speed before, you know what it’s all about.

If you’re among the uninitiated but looking for a new challenge, give a single speed a try. The only thing you’ll regret is having to decide which frame to get. We offer two models of steel single speeds, and the choice is yours. Both single speed models are built to accept 100mm travel suspension forks and now come standard for disc brakes using either an EBB or slider dropouts.

FAQ

  • Semi-Custom Sizes

    ‘Semi-custom’ is what we call our steel production bikes. We prefer to use the term semi-custom because although we have made the geometry and sizing decisions for you, there are some final choices you will make to give your bike a personal touch. Included in the price of each frame is a single color powder coat with painted logos. You will get to decide on the colors. If you would like to be more creative you can come up with a design of your choice, anything from panels to fades to flames to whatever you can imagine.

    Let us know what you would like and we will give you a quote. In addition to the finish you will also decide on the size and shape of the tubes to create a frame that fits your riding style. Cable routing, any additional braze-ons, extra water bottles, racks, or a disc brake mount are other choices you can make.

  • Fully-Custom Sizes

    Although our semi-custom frames come in many sizes, we know that there are occasions when you may want or need custom sizing or geometry. All of our frames are available as full custom for a $175 upcharge. If you decide to go with a full custom frame we will work with you to ensure you end up with a bike that fits you perfectly to increase your cycling experience.
