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)

So here are pictures of my wicked new custom dropouts. They were EDM wire cut from 3/16" stainless steel and installed by the wicked cool folks over at Bisegal. Just thought I'd share.

Those aren't dropouts. They're track ends.

if you ever have a low speed accident with another cyclist from behind they should kiss their tires goodbye

look awesome, I'd be afraid to ride them, though. Generally, I wouldn't ride a bike with any sharp edges sticking out anywhere

I love the effect the pointy ends have, so I think I'll chance the minimal risk of injury. I just love how they bring a look of speed to the bike, next step is the powdercoat/pinstripe/airbrush process to complete the rebirth process.

your axle fits in there with the round bump part from the bottom flame?
probably a dumb question.

they look good. I'd take a file to the parts of the ends that join the stays though. Make it fluid.

Yeah I need to file a bit more, but I'll enjoy that greatly. The axle does it in through the round bump, its a touch tight though. It does get thin in the rear but I only plan to ride with the axle further forward and they were designed with that in mind. The last third of the stainless is basically only there for the effect.

Those look pretty mean, I like 'em. Are they both like that? Just wondering in case you're going to use a tensioner...
