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)

You put it on backwards though. Unless you wanted the clamp in front of the post.

Not only backwards, but upside down. That 2mm metal plate is the only thing keeping you from a Vienna Boys' Choir soprano seat.

I have never seen this much patience out of the SS/FG crew. Almost C&V-like in your ability to patiently answer silly questions.

Everyone on this thread gets a gold star for the day.
