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)

Royal Nuevo vs. Custom Nuevo

Honestly, the only difference I can figure out is that one is black and 8 grams heavier. Am I missing something?

custom nuevo = sealed bearing
royal nuevo= loose ball bearing

why not go w/ rx-1? they're lighter, and as smooth and sealed.

How about get neither because you're wasting money unless you use slotted track cleats.

Seriously, no one cares about how blingy your pedals are.

Agreed. If the only thing that makes the Customs "custom" is sealed bearings, its not for me.

If you have a track frame = high BB, I'd vote for some older mtn pedals. Great stuff, if a tad wider sometimes.
