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)

Chainring pics

Anyone got good quality pics of 50 tooth track chainrings off the crank? Campy, suntour, ofmega (mistral would be awesome), etc...

I'm having a tattoo drawn and I want to do my standard 50x17 gearing as realistically as possible but all I've got is a boring new miche ring.

thanks

i have a 50t zen chainring, but their solid, relatively plain shape may or may not make the best tattoo. if you'd like a shot of it, i'd be happy to take one and photoshop out the crank and other ****. i will say that you better have the njs stamp included if you get it.

thanks.
I've seen that tattoo project before. I'd like to get one or two of those as small pieces done sometime.

I figured you'd like it. I think that site and the shop are both crescent fresh. Also about 2 blocks from my house.
