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)

My new build



So, riding home with a friend tonight, I realized I needed a beater. I had an old bumbike wheelset, but twas really bum.

Thus:

Taken from garage in my building...

Old Raleigh road frame (I once used as conversion for a minute): free
Random crankset, chainring and stem: free
26" wheelset, shimano coaster brake: free
Sweet bars off same bike: free

Cruisin and skiddin in Downtown Oakland: Priceless
