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 like em. Did you drill the holes to fit the straps?

Discovery channel should do a custom bicycle show, like "American Fixie", or something.

^^^ I looked in a DANS COMP catalogue for ones that
might work with any of the many toe clip setups I have here.
Just by the pictures, fortunately I got it right.
It might be my imagination but I get more power out of them
and they have made my crank mm's shorter but the 10 miles I
did get to try them on was painless. My spurs rejoice !

I thought about a show like those MC build-off shows but for bicycles too...
Guys dumpster diving and co-op scavanging to build hot fixies !!
Too Kool !! CHUNK666 Vs. Don Walker ??

How do you like the Truvativ touro cranks, I have the same set yet to ride them though, still in the building process. Care to comment?

^^^Mine are 170's....I dont know too much about cranks but
I dont see anything objectionable about them at all.
The only thing I notice is that the left one needs to be tightened
every two weeks or so....prolly cuz of pedal pressure backwards to stop ???
The most important thing to me was being able to find different
chainrings and again, DANS COMP ( Spicer, too)has 130bcd's for cheep !!
I would / will get 165's in the future though...
