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)

Pics of newly built fixed gear

Finally finished my fixed gear:


  • Rush Hour frame/fork, wheels, and cranks
  • 48t Chainring
  • 17t IRO cog
  • Nitto Horns w/ Velox cloth tape
  • Specialized cross lever w/ Tektro caliper
  • MKS track pedals

More pics here: http://gallery.eagle7.org/2006/2006-09/Fixie

Incredible build.. perfect in my eyes except for the pedals (toe clips < clipless) and the goofy handlebars.. but very, very well executed.

Yeah... broke a spoke coming off of one of those the other day. Granted, it wasn't a very graceful hop, but still, they have some harsh curbs around here.

Because the paint chips if you as much as look at it the wrong way.

It's a 55cm, which is a little bigger than my Lemond and IRO, but it seems to fit me really well (I have hardly any standover, but I don't really care).

I think the dog is looking at that chain and saying, "looks a little slack to me".

What is this, the Sherlock Holmes amateur hour?

Yes, the addresses are on the curbs around here, works pretty well before they fade.
Yes, that's my truck that hardly gets driven anymore unless I'm hauling stuff.
Yes, I just got a new sprinkler system.
And Yes, the chain was definately slack when I took the picture - I tensioned it properly before the maiden commute this morning.

hahahahahaha. Nah it's just something we do whenever somebody creates a new thread with their bike pictures, instead of just putting it in the your bike pictures thread that's a sticky at the top.

Sweet bike though. I really like rush hours, probably my favorite bike for the money.
