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)

Thanks everyone. This particular bike has been a rather lenghty project for me. Thanks again.

shrimpx, I have another NOS Razesa / Zeus track frame that I have not built up. It is another 60cm frame, same geometry, but with some more detailed lug work, cut outs in the BB, and a red fade to yellow origional paint job. I am hoping to build a nice little twin sister to my current bike...

Thanks again,

intro2trig, my bike shop has a really clean Razesa that I've had my eye on; blue, not drilled, no decals, chrome fork and track ends. The fork is really cool -- close to 0-rake. They want $300 for it. If they don't sell it by spring, I'll probably grab it.

They do seem to be fairly rare though. I like them a lot, especially the really clean lugwork.

Love your bike, awesome job!

Just one question, though. I've been noticing many track bikes without h/bar tape. Are you using bar-end plugs? Wouldn't it be dangerous to ride without them in case of an accident? This is probably a stupid question but I was just wondering.

shrimpx-
What kind of wheelset you running on your Razesa? I am building up my new (to me) 3Rensho track, and really like the look of solid black or silver rims with no machining for brakes. Thanks.
