Minneapolis had quite the showing at NAHBS 2015, with the flamboyant, push-the-envelope style of Peacock Groove’s Electric Hell that we’ve come to expect. The city brought forward another cyclocross bike, although admittedly, you’d have to call this next one a track bike, a trail bike, a gravel bike and touring bike as well. Chris Cleveland of Speedhound arrived with two models, although admittedly, he could have gotten away with “Only One.”
Their Only One model aims to be the do-it-all frame with their Speedhound Dropout System, which is an interchangeable dropout system that accepts 130mm, 135mm, rear derailleur, or track dropouts for singlespeed, fixed gear or belt drive.
Cleveland has been building frames for seven years, and uses uses True Temper OX platinum steel to construct the Only One models, which come in 51, 54, 56, 58, and 61 cm sizes.
The basic frameset is $1350 for the frame, fork, and dropouts, which include track-style dropouts, vertical derailleur dropouts, and mounting hardware. The disc model is $1550.
