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)

got lucky...

(Guy who sold me the Redline 925 on craigslist deleted the ad I linked to here)

Buddy of mine's picking it up tonight, and the seller's even going to retension the wheels for me.

Yet another reason I can't wait to get home from this hellhole.

Seat tube is extended farther than he prefers?
Looks like a pretty standard extension to me.
Weird.

Yeah, I thought that was kind of strange... but I talked to the guy on his phone, he knows his stuff, has a truing stand, etc... Probably just not a fan of compact geometry and has enough other bikes that this one isn't a necessity.

I have no complaints.

I won't be back home until May 18, so it'll be a while. But don't worry, I'll let y'all know.

I can say one thing: It will require a great many aesthetic modifications.
