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)

The most expensive chainline fix...

New wheels! My new OP/Dimension wheels made my crappy chainline almost perfect, plus they ride ride like a dream (although I expect that almost anything does after riding poorly kept Alex/suze jr wheels). Anyway, I am extremely pleased with my new set up. I took it for a short ride and was amazed at how smooth everything was.

p.s. I didn't get the new wheels just for the chainline.

I thought Dimensions, Formulas, and Suzues were all essentially the same. Congrats on getting a better chainline with the new wheels!
