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)

Nashbar aluminum roller. The CycleOps pvc is getting too bad, I should've gone with my gut instinct and gotten a alu roller from the start.

Finally met a SRAM powerlock I couldn't get off with just vice grips, so I sucked it up and bought a pair of Park's MLP-1.2 powerlink pliers.

Seriously, hubs convertible from bolt-on to QR does not pique your interest? I think that's pretty darn cool. But then, I though flip-flop dropouts on Gary Fisher city bikes a few years back was hawt, too...

Re purposed. I have one of theirs with a cue-sheet sleeve and side pockets but it isn't very pretty.

Bought myself a Banjo Brothers bag as well. Originally wanted a Carradice bag but their bags were a little out of my desired price range.

I just bought 4 pairs of thick wool socks from costco, and a 6-pack of the grab bag socks from deFeet.

Never thought I would be so excited to buy socks.

A Mojo brand track chainring off eBay. Looks like a Sugino Zen, only new 49 tooth chainring I could find that looks like a Zen. Caliper dial says it's round and when laid on top of my previous chainring it's exactly the same size so so far it's been a good 20 bucks spent.

So I got hit by a car on my bike a few weeks ago, dude didn't know how to look in his blind spot. My front wheel ended up under his wheel so it was effed. Ordered a new wheelset. I'm really diggin the different colors on each side, not diggin the silver nipples, but my previous set had silver nipples and it didn't drive me crazy.

Big thanks to Ben at velomine, I emailed him and he got back to me the next day, and worked out an alternate means for shipping because his site wouldn't accept my APO address
