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)

is that the front wheel the guy from Europe was selling on eBay not too long ago?

also, IIRC the front wheel is on backwards.

It would make sense since the position it's in would I guess.. go straight at the air, opposed to the other direction where it would be more aero.

i would like to see the above with 36 bladed black spokes in the rear wheel, one of those oversized stella azzura stems modded to be all black, and some topeak ergon race grips. maybe throw some FSA crank arms with a custom black anodized DA 7710 chainring as well.

man i need to get of my ass and rob a bank.

thanks for all your comments.

the front wheel is on proper. thin edge leading.

the front skewer is a locking one from onguard. it is semetrical.

please do not support fsa. they do not back the quality of there cranks, unless you call jb weld a warrenty.

glad to see you kids have not changed...

I didnt know that. I had a "debate" with a friend that was going to buy the wheel and the Pinarello pursuit it was mounted on. I thought the thin side would trail (like the seat tube) therfore being in the most aero position when spinning. I guess he was right. Cool ass bike man, Im sure its a fun ride.

damn, that pics a lot better. the front of that bike looks like it will handle anything the street will throw at it. the white rear tire really set the bike off though. wouldnt have the same feel all black.

clearly money and practicality weren't issues so why a spoked rear wheel at all.

where have you been for the last year or so?

I don't think mikorp's rides are about practicality. Just fun. A brand of fun that might not meet what you expect fun on a track bike should be, but fun nonetheless.
