Last time I rode the 36 it was for 557 mile bikepacking trip ... Yup... 557 miles on a single speed coaster brake boat anchor
Awesome!
I always wondered how the "one piece cranks" hold up when bikebacking, they seen to have a certain "gap" where dirt n' debris can go inside. Do you have to clean them often?

Love the "Klunker wall" in the earlier post. You gotta clean them bikes when they hang on your wall :bigsmile:

This is a spare parts klunker I made, I used whatever I had laying around (that is a lot of parts in all fairness). It is a Hawthone frame, I think it is a 24" wheeled frame but I got 26" wheels in there.
