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)

Conversion fodder

Ok guys....scored a Shogun 600 and a Fuji Delray friday...the Shogun really is more of the keeper, but the Fuji does have the Nitto Olymiade bars and Nitto stem as well as the nicer pedals. The Wheels on the Fuji are what seem to be the middle of the road standard for the early 80's with the araya rims and Shimano hubs (27" rims). I'll be swapping everything onto the Shogun in the form of a fixie for now while I build up El Bastardo.














Everything was sitting in a pile on the side of the road. Crazy what folks throw out LOL.
