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)

2005 Bianchi Pista 1/8 or 3/32?

Does anyone know if it's 1/8 or 3/32? I may have bought the wrong replacement chain.

I'm fairly sure it's 3/32". I know that the Sugino RD crankset comes with a 3/32" ring.

3/32. A 1/8th will go on a 3/32, noisy as it may be.

Thanks guys, I bought a new chain to put on, and after a 20ish mile ride the chain came off the chainring and sprocket good thing I was going like 2mph but it scared the fr*ggin sh*t outta me. Now I remember why a front brake is a reasonable idea. I think it was a stuck link.

Brakes are a good thing! I've never understood the "machismo" of running with no brakes.
