My Triple SS Bikes

I have two mountain bikes - a 26er and a 29er.  And, both have been converted into Triple SS.   When I bought these bikes, they are built and complete with gears, suspension forks, and front & rear brakes.

What's Triple SS?
  • First SS is for Single Speed (no gears)
  • Second is for Sans Suspension (rigid)
  • Third is for Single Stopper (front brake only)
I first converted my 26er (by the way, it's already a 69er) into rigid and later on into single speed.  I've loved the way how it's ridden; so, I also converted my 29er into rigid and single speed at the same time.

Before I removed my rear brakes, I first experimented and practiced of not using my rear brakes for almost a year.  When I gained the confidence, I ditched them to shave some weight.
