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)

New SS/FG Build With Pictures

I'm working on a new build. SS/FG flip flop.

Soma Rush Frame (forgot to take pictures of the matching fork):





Brooks Saddle:


Chris King Headset (part of it, at least):


Milwaukee Hubset:


Tektro Brake Set:


Old seatpost from my 80's Bianchi road bike:



Did my first install today, seatpost and saddle into frame:



I've got DT Swiss RR 1.2 and Mavic CXP 33 rims, Sugino RD48 crankset, Veloflex Pave Red/tan sidewall tires, and Paul E-levers on the way, and my eye on a Thomson stem and Cinelli Giro handlebars.

In the end, it will be a White frame, silver/chrome components, Brown saddle and brown shellac'd handlebar tape, red/tan tires and red cable housing. More updates as I get parts in. We'll see how it turns out.

I've got a black Rush, they're pretty nice frames. Looks good so far. Im running Mavic CXP22 on mine and love them. Looks like you'll have a solid build. Any idea of the total cost for yours? My total build with some nice parts was $400 (mavic/formula wheelset, thompson stem, nitto horns, san marco seat, sugino chainring, etc)
