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 a wrench or is it permanantly attached to the nut?

As for this wrench, hub nut is welded.
Therefore, it always adheres to bike.

Nifty, it could also serve as a foot rest for coasting.

I love the way steel & chrome polish up for the camera

I actually like the frankenstein look but it would probably get stolen to quickly to be practical.

This is my stock yard, and the source of the idea.
I will inform you in advance, I cannot sell overseas these NJS Keirin frames.

Okay! I'd do exactly what you've done, except have the wrench as specialized to attach to the frame using the water bottle nuts that so very often go unused on track bikes.




Major Con, many many track bikes built without water bottle bosses

upside - a competent end user can install bosses

Hey Sam
Ever seen the brake-bridge mod on a track bike for a waterbottle mount? I can't seem to find it...

My definition of competent is varied though, I'd pay someone to do it on a nice steel frame, but I'd do it myself on a steel beater.

No I haven't sounds like a winner, though monster thighs might rub it. Hell monster thighs rub frames sometimes, nothing to be done for it.

Tomity-san, your creativity (and bike horde!) is always welcome. Unfortunately here in the US, people really enjoy stealing nice bike stuff, so putting a wrench onto a hub nut almost invites theivery. If not of the wheels (if not secured), then the wrench itself. It is a sad commentary to make, but it is also true.

Definitely innovative, though!

Please pay attention to a yellow arrow.
Sliced cog is used for the lock ring of the bottom bracket.
Is this the Pretty cool?

This bike sold by 30300JPY in Japan Yahoo auction.
My wife had gotten on this bike.

I pass it to the highest bidder today.
The same goods as chainring(Shimano D/A NJS gold models)of this bike were made for a successful bid with 13000JPY.
