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)

wheelset, tires, tubes, bullhorns, stem, headset, seat post, saddle, bb, cranks, cog, chain, front caliper, brake lever, and powder coat. i think the only thing i didn't buy was the frame. pretty much a ground up rebuild with everything purchased in one day.

once it is assembled i'll be sure to post a thread for everyone to make fun of my drunken ebay binge.

and for the sake of clarification the frame was my mother's 81 schwinn le tour she bought brand new from a lbs in indianapolis. i rescued it from the chicken coop a couple years ago and finally decided to do something with it. the only thing that is truly original on it now is the front emblem, i plan on leaving it alone for posterity.

I try to keep my bike tools separate from my other stuff and they would always end up all over the place. Not any more!

retrorabbit - I assume WK was simply making a joke because you bought everything BUT a frame.
