    Ahhhh, yeah, whatever that is…..

    Why don't you try actually reading what someone is saying before you respond, rather than jumping to whatever errant conclusion your warped mental filter hastily...

    "Kid"?? "Calm down"?? Who the **** are you…..my father? I was more than calm until I read your absurd response. "Tough fixie rider"?? When did I ever say or imply that? My whole point, intended to...

    Ahhhhh, OK. Didn't realize it would pose such an imposition on your sensibilities. Sorry I was so forceful that way. :wtf:

    Yeah, guess I should have known better. I forgot how incredibly cool some of you guys are.

    Like when you haven't ridden fixed for a while and you go out and resist on a bunch of down hill stretches?

    Damn that hurts! Especially to go down stairs, sit down in your car, lowering yourself...

    I used to feel that way about Scrod too, but I've actually come to appreciate his acerbic wit and intolerance of lazy-mindedness. I find his responses well informed, and the harsher ones somewhat...

    Stop perpetuating that silly myth, of course there is. Mine is indeed the best. Matter of fact, it's so good, it's not fair to all the other fixes out there. The only problem this leaves the rest...

    Yo, you callin' me insignificant??

    I am indeed but a grain of sand within a vast desert, but man, I've seen some stuff……..:50:

    Well I'll volunteer to act as a guinea pig on this one by default…..I just built up a pair of track wheels using A23's. The finish appeared perfect with no burrs, etc., and they built up...

    This pair cost me exactly $400:

    Brand new pair of Paul Components track hubs snagged on Ebay for $145,
    Velocity A23's (seems like a good set!) with DT comps for $255,
    I built them, so no cost...

    Wow. Just went to his site. What craftsmanship and aesthetics. Seems to be a lot like Richard Sachs in his attention to detail, but his prices seem downright reasonable…...

    I have two alu fixies. A Colnago Pista and a Look AL 464 (built up as SS). Love everything about both……plenty stiff, light, and responsive, yet forgiving enough over rougher surfaces. And rust is...

    Gotta leave the ultimate bike choice in your hands, but I would definitely avoid painting any part the wheels! They'll look crappy enough in no time anyway, even worse as any newly painted surface...

    Their bikes appear to be nice products. The frame geometries seem to be a bit more on the aggressive side which I like. Just note that from what I read, the Varsity model seems to come set up as...

    Not sure on the Kona. The pictures don't reveal enough and it looks like its been used a good bit, so I'd certainly not pay the asking price. If you could buy from the US, that would open up a lot...

    And on a fixed gear, you'll be in for a rude awakening the first time you instinctively try to freewheel a bit as you prepare for that inevitable first sneeze. ; - )
