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)

A Miche front track hub
A pair of Open Pro 32h rims
somewhere in the vicinity of 64 double butted spokes

Or are we dreaming?

OK I'll take a pair of Phil Wood Track hubs, a green Brooks Swift, A Miche Supertype seatpost, A 170mm campy Pista crank, Campy track pedals, and a BIG box of bike tools.

Still not all that exotic, but simple pleasures ya know.

My christmas pretty much happened on Tuesday.

Thanks, sashae and gravityhurts!

(I could still use real cone wrenches, a workstand, and a truing stand. And someplace to put them.)

OH, and my freind whos in japan right now just bought me some Kashimax Dual Sprint straps. They were on sale because its the off season. Amusingly enough though the guy had a hard time figuring out that shes not a racer, and neither am I. He eventually decided that I must be an American Keirin racer, cuz noone else buys double toe straps.

I couldn't get what I really wanted from my Fiance. Everyshop in Texas is unable to get Black non-machined deep v's from velocity right now. They are out of stock they say. Apparently they have been "wildly" populare according to Velocity. Imagine that. They still have "Party" colors in stock. (velocity's words, not mine.)

An SRAM PC99 chain for me- I was hoping for hollow-pin but I don´t want to get greedy- maybe a torque wrench may also be on the list if santa is feeling generous

My girl's buying me the B125s i've been eyeing. It was that or a tattoo and we both decided it would be more difficult to swap out a forearm should the relationship not work out.
