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 got my fixie.

This came in the mail today:

I want to go ride it, but I'm sooo tired. I was nearly falling asleep while putting it together. I didn't sleep enough last night. I think I need a nap before I can go ride.

Hey, very nice. I really like the blue accents (same thing on my roadie, and my soon to be fixie).. what brand/model tires are those?

Hey, I just woke up.
No, it doesn't come with the blue accents, the stock one looks like this:


But I asked for it with drop bars and 23mm tires, and since they were being replaced anyway, I wanted it with blue. The tires are something cheap. They say "cheng shin tire" on the side. Some Chinese company, but they look alright.

Maybe I'm un-hip, but I sorta lament the fact that you removed the fenders. They're useful, ya know... and they look pretty nice, I think.

Anyway, BIG ups for having that moustache abomination swapped from the get go. Bar setup and tape looks great.

I live in California. It doesn't rain here from about April until about November. I kept them, I can put them back on when the rainy season starts. Until then they're not doing me any good anyway.

Redline doesn't allow internet sales. I got it from a bike shop in Oregon that doesn't do online sales, however I did some work for the manager of the shop, and so he shipped me the bike as payment.
