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)

Bramptons

Won a set of flip/flops for the 1936 CCM.Nice correct steel high flange Bramptons

The frame is not a track frame--just a regular RoadRacer--but will be an interesting addition.
Any on this group have 20s,30s or 50s SS(or fixed)?I know some great Melvin Star frames have been sold on ebay this year.---sam

my stan miles is from 55, its all campy'd out. i have 62 carlton flyer track on the way, cant wait!

i have these hubs.

going to use the front one on the carlton, rear i have an extra campy kicking around so ill use that instead.

you got a great price on those hubs. do you have to use a brampton axel or could you just throw in a campagnolo one?

I have a brampton. It's a little bent wobbles when you roll it on the floor.

Do you think I can bend it back?
