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)

Upgraded from resign pedals to some used shimano pedals for 5 bucks. Then added some Power Grip straps i've had laying around for a year. Great success!

I recently bought that same drivetrain for just under $300. A steal! I bought floor models. Never installed! Anodized green. Mmmmm ...

My most recent purchase was a new stem from an SE Premium Draft. <3

Actually I got a great deal on the 2007 maroon steamroller.

This weekend I spent about an hour stripping all the stickers and badge off the frame. Looks nice a clean. Also got a set of SKS chrome colored fenders and mounted them with a few electrical clamps (ones with the rubber).

I got the 49CM (I'm 5'6") but the bars are a little narrow. I'm probably picking up a set of Nitto bull horns one of these days.

To tell you the truth I wasn't sure about the color when I ordered it. When it arrived I was stoked! The maroon is an awesome color. I do like the creamrollers, but I like the Maroon more. The color looks classic.

Black. I already have a black CrossXCheck so I couldn't go black.

Yeah, the steamer is a joy to ride. I wish I had hoods on the bike (why I want bullhorns), but overall it will become my go to bike for pretty much anything around my house. The CrossXCheck is my commuter.

I need to get pictures of my bikes...

<3 doubletap, well worth it I think.

oh, on campus bike shop was having a 35% off sale, so I got a krypto mini, nitto B123's, and some cheapo origin8 bullhorns.

in sfbay area, the nitto drops seem to pull more than 59 bucks used, so I'm pretty happy with that purchase
