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)

Big day at the Cronometro swap meet in Madison.

I picked up a pair of Wolber/Super Champion mod 58 rims:


*TWO* pairs of Marcel Berthet pedals:


A 48T TA *track* chainring (I had the arm, but am looking for a left-side mate):


A Cinelli 1/R stem with all its parts:


A Huret "Jubilee" front derailleur with intact clamp:


And some odds and ends.

And I even managed to come in under budget!

I just bought some Salmons Kool Stops. Best pads out there bar none.
I also picked up an FSA Pig HS. Best of all I scored an old school Cadex AL fork with removable brake posts.
This will replace the OLLD RokShok XC and save me a couple pounds off the front end.

Monster Cross conversion, juuust about there.
Now looking for super shorty stem to accommodate the dirt drops/road bars.

That Pig rocks. I used one on my tandem, and it stayed smooth after a lot of abuse.

I haven't received them yet. Hopefully they come in the mail today. From what I've read, they're not waterproof, but supposedly they dry very quickly and are quite comfortable.

http://www.oregoncyclewear.com/messenger_knickers.html

EDIT: Got them today. VERY comfortable. On the tag it does say it's water resistant material. There's also a few testimonials that say they're good for the rain.

From the testimonial page:

By the way,
the knickers are fantastic! i wore them, yesterday, during a deluge of rain and they kept me quite dry. Thanks again,

I got the white.

Next up: white saddle! Any suggestions? Ideally I'd get a Regal, but I'm really just too broke to ever afford one.

$7 worth of new screws for the rack mounts and water bottle cages for my SS and my tandem.



It isn't exciting but it is the last thing I purchased.

I thought that same thing, then I sucked it up and bought a Regal. Buy yourself a damn Regal!

I've got a used one I'm trying to get rid of.
Looking for a 31.8 stem or some track drops or some smexy stuff to trade.
