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)

NOS 2011 Langster. Bought just the frame, and used cheap parts laying around to build the bike. Now I will change everything for shiny things

I know squid puppet hated it in the 2016 thread but new year new bar tape. I've bought a second bike since the last time I posted and upgraded a few things on this one. next upgrade is some toe clips as soon as I find some 1/2 pedals that will work with them.

I decided to convert this thing to give fixed another shot. Not sold on the power grips, but otherwise it is quite fun. I plan on giving it almost every sticker I can find, just to make it uglier.
