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)

pretty much done (with pics!)

my first build. i think the grips might be swapped out for somethin leather that matches the saddle.







sorry for the quality of the pics, those were taken with my iSight.

haha, actually it's not left hand drive, its because my iSight reverses the pictures (also why the "Wrights" badge ont he back of the saddle is reversed). but now that you mention that, thats a good idea.

You'll need tandem cranks, otherwise the pedals will strip.

Very classy build, I think Brooks makes leather bar wrap.

your iSight can be set to not reverse the pics... so that's no excuse.

the bike, whether it's flipped or not, is hot to deaf.

You should swap out the saddle for something that matches the grips. White components = pro.
