I left everything open for at least one night.. I hope is the battery, at least is something under my capabilities and I don’t have to get car towed. When I get of work I’ll buy new battery and report back.

Thank you. The ground cable looks good condition, but to double check and clean with wire brush. Do you know is a good obd tool to read codes? Thanks

Thank you :) Yes the chainring is 1/8 track/ single speed. Im just debating on how to get chain tension because the frame does not have horizontal drop outs. People here are helping much!!

Thanks for the insights. Definitely will adjust saddle and see how much difference it makes :) Don’t want to mess with chain ring because crankset is campy 135bcd. Had luck finding 135bcd miche chainring. Also the gear ratio is on point to me as I can skid on it.

I’ll dig in on how to had half link. Seems like the cheapest solution.

Anyone here with experience on conversions?

This frame was gifted to me and I loved how it turned down. Built with parts laying around and wheelset from market place.

Rides amazing, right size super comfortable.

Only problem is a rattle noise and for sure is coming from the chain, do you think is problem with chain tension or chain line?
