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)

Went from a 17T to a 19T
Thanks to Nutt for the great Cog. Super condition for a super price.
Just not sure how ready I am for how spinny my ride suddenly got. 17 was nice, it got spinny towards the upper end of my speeds, but this is spinny just trying to cruise.
I guess thats what I thought I wanted. Just not sure im in good enough shape to ride it!

Picked up a K710SL chain for a bike I'm building up.
Question though; Looking at it out of the box, it seems like it's not long enough? It's 100 links.
I would simply go and put it on, but alas I haven't the bike I'm putting it on :S

I had large All city nylon toe clip but it finally broke from scraping soo much.

I honestly don't know What to get so I'm getting 3different kinds of clips in Medium since Large was slightly big for me.
I like the nylon for ease of use and trashability but here we go:


CKC steel dual gate double Medium


MKS traps white




All city Nylon Med



CKC steel single gate double Med




Gatorskin Folding 700x23c Spent extra $12 for folding tires.(lighter)

I just 'accidentally' bought an EAI Keirin Tool off eBay--I bid $74.99 a few days ago, expecting to be outbid at the last minute, but I never was. $9 shipping from CO to CA.

I want rollers.

When it was snowing out, I was doing track stand in the garage to fulfil my need of being on the bike...but the weather has been relatively well and been happy riding.
