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)

dropouts

I have a Bianchi Fremont and since it is an aluminum frame, they put another metal over the dropouts. Does anyone know what the metal is? It is the same that is on the Pista Concept, im assuming it is stainless steel? Also i got some MKS track tensioners for it, for the aluminum version, but they don't fit, who here has a Fremont, and do you use a tensioners? Thanks

why do you need to know? i'm pretty sure it's going to be a kind of steel or chro-mo.

get a set of calipers and measure what kind of tensioners will fit and then measure ones available.
