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 finally got my disc wheel back...

from my boy Erick @ blackbookstencils.com It's an old Aerosports Trialist with a 'cartoon style' fight cloud, that can be converted to fixed(although it may be *****).

You have any problems finding valve stems the right size? It's a pain to fill up the tubular on my disc because it's too long.

yeah the crack pipe adapter works alright... there's a much better one but it's a bit pricey

Ah man.. that turned out well. I'm working on some graphics for my disc wheel (hence the 6 page thread from a couple weeks ago), but I don't think I'll be painting it.

Looks awesome. Non-drive side should have been holding a gun, so then the kid on the other side shouldn't have brought a knife to a gun fight.

Thanks though. $10 is a bit much, I only paid $5 for my Silca.

Anyone have that picture of the dude (think he was in NYC) with the Pabst 12-pack faux-disc?
