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)

I ordered a bike last week(used frame, new parts) and the shop just sent me this picture of it :-D

The wheels are not mine, I'm having them build a set with Miche hubs and Mavic MA3 rims but they weren't done yet.

All miche parts except for the headset(shimano 105) and I'm putting a Kalloy quill and a Belleri bar on it out of my parts bin. Can't wait for it to get here.

Totally. You need to start bidding on a 650 fork and wheel on eBay pronto.

Yes you are right. I could get the fork from the shop, they sent me a pic of the frame with the fork taped to it at first and I wouldn't be surprised if they had a wheel or ten lying around. Thing is, my budget is severely limited.

Edit, well I sent an e-mail asking what they want for the fork. Maybe they'll be reasonable.

i'm surprised at how cool and not-as-weird-as-i-would-expect with the 700c wheel/fork in there. i kind of want that bike.

man it looks weird to me, see how much wheel is forward on the front fork. I think the weight is going to be set really far back and the front end is going to be twitchy. The frame is beautiful though.

I picked it up today, and man is it beautiful! I need a new quill since my old one is way too long, and some other stuff needs fixing too. I took the quill and bar of my Ss roadbike.





For fullsize pics, Sannino

Gorgeous frame. Consider putting a 650 wheel on there at some point
