Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Yadder,

Liked the Vintage stuff you posted on the C&V sub thread. Glad to see you go for the Fixed as well!

is your seatpost too high up from the seat tube? Not familiar with that frame.

Nice frame, man. I was going to get one, but they are out of stock in just about every color in a 58.
