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)

Lets get NOLAGEEK back on a bike

As yall know Nolageek is okay, but without a bike. As he said "the payroll dept is under 6 feet of water".
I figured we need to coordinate on getting him a bike. If your got some spare parts, post what you can give. If you can contribute some money, list that too. Guess we need to find out what size frame Nolageek needs.

I'll start with the parts list. Bullhorns and front brake.

I think I've got a crankset that's been gathering dust for a year or so. Looks like an old sugino crankset but isn't stamped or anything, nothing fancy, but it'll work. 144bcd.

i got this in a pm this morning i dont know why but it might help

Good to hear. I think the forum wants to help you with a bike.
You'll let us, won't you? For me, I'd like to think I could help someone I know it would benefit.
So tell me what your dream ride would be....really. Seriously...


Honestly? Wow. I would totally name the bike Katrina.

I would love some sort of track bike, since I've never had one. hehehe But a good ol' conversion is fine with me. I ride a 52-54cm frame. My old Bianchi was my 3rd child, behind my cats. I know it sounds completely materialistic.. but I really loved it. More than my porn. lol Just no room in the cars for it and I didn't think it'd be this bad. No one did.

So, Im not picky. But if I were to be, it'd be a good steel lugged frame. Sexy track drops. Fixed (of course). I loved my Bianchi though. But, beggars can't be choosers! hehehe

Thanks for the good wishes.

i sent a few hundred already but will be more than happy to send bike parts to whomever is in need. i was in new orleans exactly a month ago for my grandmother's funeral. the room that i stayed in at my uncles house is completely under water. it's like looking into another world to see that city drowning.

Glad to see he still has some humor in him. Well now we know what size frame. I pm'd him asking if he had the tools/place to build up a bike, and also asked where to ship this stuff to.

yeah. cash should go to the red cross (or your favorite). i think the idea is that we all have enough spare parts between us to make the guy a bike, which is the last thing anybody should be spending money on when so many persons are dying of thirst/hunger/no meds.

I don't have spare parts.
And I made quite a significant donation yesterday to the American Red Cross.

I'm fine with this.....

I have some road drops I could donate. Or slightly scratched steel NJS track drops.

Edit--I missed the bullhorn offer from the OP.

Ok, so what money is collect would go toward purchasing a frame unless someone has a frame to spare. If someone pitches in a frame, then money could go toward filling in the gaps of the bike build. I have already donated to red cross, I am just trying to coordinate getting a bike for a fellow one geared bike rider. So PLEASE lets keep this thread to the task at hand... getting a bike for noalgeek.

I've got a 110 mm, +/- 17 degree stem, as well as a seat and seatpost, but it sounds like those are covered. Just lemme know where to send it (them).

Here's a basic "bike build checklist", maybe someone can host a list on a personal site and fill in the blanks until there are enough parts to build a bike? Be sure to note sizes and diameters, so seatpost diameter matches the frame, etc......

Frame
Fork
Rear Wheel
Front Wheel
Headset
(If threadless: Headset spacers/Headset topcap/Star fangled nut)
Stem
Handlebar
Seatpost clamp
Seatpost
Saddle
Tires
Rim tape
Tubes
Crank
Chainring
Chainring bolts
Bottom Bracket
Chain
Rear Cog
Cog Lockring
Pedals
Grips / Bar Tape
Water Bottle Cage
Brake Calipers
Brake Cables
Brake Levers
Cable Crimp Ends
Cable Ferrules
Cable Donuts
Pie
