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)

I too would love to know what rims these are. Specially because I have the exact same bike.

full build weight? it looks nice minus the saddle/bars. and full msrp if you don't mind? they look like leader wheelset, cranks and basically everything they offer.

Haven't gotten a chance to weigh it yet. The saddle is definitely getting swapped out. It was either this or a brooks one that I had laying around. The bars are more comfortable for daily use, but I do have some Deda Pista drops on order. I'll update later with my component list. I'm about to head out the door for work.

Going to start a new one of these, for upkeep and prevention of a potential software crash. There will be a link to this one on the new photo thread.
