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)

After spending an hour last night tightening, redishing, and truing my 27" converted POS, I bit. If anything it should hold me over until I build some new 700c wheels. UPS costs were half the price of the wheel.

Thanks for the tip, Shecky.

schivo...I got your quality right here.

165...The Reds suck. Owen couldn't score on your grandmother.

Suzue flip flop.
Weinmann rim.
Even seem to have thrown in a 15t cog and lockring. I wasn't expecting that.
Plus, they actually had one in stock (a major plus if you've ever tried ordering from this outfit... don't get me started...). I waited to tell you guys until I had the wheel in my hands. Got it today and it looks OK. Somehow, the stars were aligned, and the shipping calculator said shipping would only be $11. So I had to take it.

I found a old 10sp in the alley a couple weeks ago good for a convert when I spotted this. We'll see how it goes together.

Ordering for Big Wheel is like throwing the dice.

You can get some great deals if they have it or you get it.

I am going to throw the dice today on some rims. We will see what happens.

Anyhow, here's a couple items that some might be interested in.
