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)

Does anyone know of any LBS in SF that stock 3/32 half links? Some of the ones I've been to either do not have them or look at me all funny. I've considered buying one from Harris Cyclery, but if I can keep it local, then I'd much rather do that. Thanks all.

I've been told that half links for 3/32" chains are hard o come buy becuase they are primarily used for bikes with gears and half links don't work with the derailurs...but I've been wrong before.

Of course, I'm not too surprised that they'd be hard to come by. It's just that I've got a 3/32 cog and chainring on my SS conversion, as well as a 3/32 chain already. I'm short by half a link, and adding another link forces me to run my tensioner in push down mode...sucks! I suppose I could go with a 1/8 chain, but I'd give the 3/32 a go if i could.
