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)

My New Dub

Well i finally got around to building another back wheel. I have gone through like 3 back wheels in the past 3 months... from hubs stripping to multiple spokes breaking, to bearings locking up in the hub.... hopefully this will fix it. Most of the problems were from no name company wheels...

Nice. Black would have been tight though for the hubs and spokes...but don't let me take away from the pure yum of that wheel. One day I'll afford Phils.
