SingleBe Street Killer 650B is another edition of the platform "Street Killer" dedicated to riders who likes to commute / ride the city with fun running their technical skills. Born by the hand of the Czech handcrafter Tomas owner of the brand SingleBe, this street city bike is ready to hit the tarmac with its 650B wheels.
The SingleBe Street Killer 650B frame is made of Dedacciai ZeroUno steel tubes. It is a very stylish commuter to ride across the city featuring pretty short chainstay with 399mm and 1036mm wheelbase that predict a really fun and dynamic bike...ready for manuals and wheelies ? But to provide stability if the rider wish to ride at higher speed, the headtube angle is slacker with 68°.
The drivetrain is composed of chosen components with a carbon gates drive belt linked to a rear speedhub Shimano Alfine 11s providing softness, silence and reliability. To insert or remove the belt, the frame can be split on the rear right dropout, those are vertical dropouts that have the advantage to "guaranty" the right placement of the wheel especially for an unruly commuter like this Street Killer 650B. So to be able to adjust the tension of the belt without the presence of horizontal dropouts, the solution of the handcrafter SingleBe is to use an adjustable EBB bottom brackets that allow by playing on the crank position, more at the front or at the rear, to adjust the tension of the belt.
Guess you did not missed that the Street Killer 650B is equipped with a Lefty Rigid front fork (like the previous edition of the 26" Street killer we are talking about here), do not be afraid those single leg fork are really reliable, strong, rigid. Of course you need a specific Lefty front hub, here is 32 holes (also exist in 24holes), to set up the front wheel. The hub is screwed on the integrated axle fork made of steel, the source of its strength. Brakes are Shimano SLX with 160mm rotor rear and 180mm front. Tires are Schwalbe BigOne 650bx2.35 that have a very low rolling resistance with Snakeskin technology (cut resistance) and are tubeless ready. About the colour, the bike is Black matte with soft grey decals on the seat tube. There are also "street killer" decals on each rims.
