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)

possible stupid question(superbe pro chainring stuff)

so i went to put some of the components from the cannondale on my iro and had a little trouble.

i couldnt use my chain on the new chainring and cog. is there some kind of difference i didnt know about between dura ace and iro, and suntour drivetrain components?

im assuming getting a new chaing will help, but what do i need?

sorry for being an idiot. thanks to anyone that can help.

the chainring and cog are prolly 1/8" and the chain is 3/32"

a new 1/8" chain will take care of it.
