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've been drooling over these..


I've been loving this damn set up, and I can't seem to find that chainring anywhere, not that I'd even have the money to buy it, but god it looks so smooth to me..anyone know anything about that chainring/crankset?

*edit..the picture doesnt seem to be showing up...but heres the link to the FGG entry...

Not that anyone asked for my opinion, but I don't really like it. I miss the cutouts.

Yeah, BigMrT, chicagodave doesn't like them.
So, don't bother.

I think they are officially badass. And with that chain? That's one helluva ride.

I like it because it looks like you could flip the bike over a cut a cord of wood. That would be cool.

the first picture makes that chainring look like a trash can lid. the chain, though, is pretty cool.

I have that crankset, but not that crazy chainring. Vintage (read : OLD) Stronglight. No idea where it came from, but it's been transfered from bike to bike to bike.

A recently posted, yet very old, photo of the current bike w/ said crankset.
