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)

Normally I'd agree, but there's been so little quality posting lately that I'm more apt to let posts like this slip without snark.

Anyway, the bike looks great. 2001 was the last year that the Fuji Track had a cool paint job (although I'm sure many would disagree with that).

Good point.
Id like to ask. Is the frame that was used on these older ones the same as the newest ones?
The geometry looks tighter to me/more appealing on this older one compared to the new ones.

i agree about the paint. this year's offering is an improvement though.

i dig the arione/white bar tape combo.

Looks hot. Anyone know where white hoods can be found? Maybe for some Tektro levers?

i'm gonna have to go ahead and agree with you..well more so i absolutely just love the paint job of the 01's.
for some reason it reminds me of some of the old team raleigh color schemes.

I think I like it because it's the inverse of my bike's color scheme.

I bought my 64cm from Sheldon @ Harris.
Spokes and crank&bb went to pot within a few rides, replaced and all is good.

White looks good on your bike!

The frame is 110 spaced. The lower HS stack height and fork A/C slacken the Geo.

yup, you hit it on the head. well done.

i'm getting a crankset hopefully sooner rather than later off a buddy of mine.

i also have a new wheelset in mind because i've had to true the rear wheel twice, the front once, and i've broken a spoke in the past three months.

so, to all the haters, sorry to have misrepresented this thread by making you think it would be some sort of extreme restoration project or something. i just wanted to share a pic since i was in the picture taking mood earlier today and, not to mention, i think it's a pretty tits ride.

I disagree with the paint comment. I don't think they ever had cool paint.

And be prepared to replace the headset, it should die pretty soon.
