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 got a parts list,

it's probably gonna have wheels/chain/crankset/frame

some other odds and ends. Probably a cool black and red color scheme, not sure yet though.


Thoughts?

handlebars; you should look into them
maybe a headset
a fork (unless this is included in the frame) could be useful
pedals?
do you plan on riding this bike or does it have another intended use?

also by cool black do you mean black with a bluish tint (as opposed to a warm black?) this may clash with the red; you should consider that

Dude you're an idiot - you need some of those hella cool orange training tyres on that thing yo!

ps, seriously go with a frame though - you'll never regret it, it'll ride way better

Headsets are for poseurs. You need a TT pad.

Sounds good so far, you should think about a saddle maybe too. I hear they're great for riding.

my advice would be to get a seattube pad and a downtube pad too. (don't forget to color coordinate these)

now that i think of it, if you get the right pads in the right sizes, you can just velcro them together as a frame. that way, you'd have some cash left over to get a bigger mess. bag.

so, did anybody else notice metaljim's new avatar?

metaljim, the furthest i could ever make it in that game was the eighth dungeon. i never knew how to get past the barrier in the beginning. and there's that weird ghost town i could never figure out what to do in.

how do i beat that part? can we reroute this thread to discussions pertaining to Link and Nintendo Power Magazine?

thanks,
-dan bones
