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)

need to borrow a dremel for ten minutes!

hi there, i was wondering if i could borrow someone's dremel for ten minutes so i can bore out a brake lever just a tad to fit my nitto bars.

i can pay some clams for time and utility,

or we can go get a beer or two afterward.


can anyone lend a hand? pm me!


thanks.
-daniel

You can borrow mine! If you're on your way to Finland anyway,
just stop by in the Netherlands.

! I'm in Paris too, on vacation. I haven't seen a single FG rider the entire time. Yeah, anyway, I have a dremel here too, so you can borrow both of ours. Or you could hit up amsterdam, where I'll be on Sunday, make a trip out of it.

not so many fixies here indeed. But a few of us ride one! You can contact most of us here: http://www.urbancycle.fr/team/forum/viewforum.php?id=21 or here: http://pignonfixe.com/forum/

Take care,
Gilles - Olmo track bikes owner near the Eiffel tower
