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)

hmm, my toe in is TERRIBLE as well, one's toed out and the other is toed in.

i think the squeaking problem and the toe in problem can be cured with a better set of pads and toe adjustable refillable holders.


this is a pretty common upgrade it seems and i see no reason to not replace the pads and shoe holders with refillable holders that adjust.

kool-stop cartridge pad holder set is what you want - great pads and orbiting holders.

thank you geordi, you're wonderfully helpful tonight!

those cables are insanely helpful, i'm glad i complimented my mini u with one. be sure to have a seperate lock so you don't have to route it back to your real lock.

those cartriges are definitely worthwhile once i have the spending money.

i just looked at the major taylor bars and blue grips on thomson and must say, i hope it looks better than it does in my head

that stem and those bars go together about as well as sour cream and pickled cashews. hurl.

yeah, the cable is being used with my ny mini u to secure my rear wheel -- easily cut, but might prevent a crime of opportunity.

Dude, you are living my dream. Way to go. Did you go for the BB30 bottom bracket?

Thanks, I did go BB30. For this type of bike it make sense to make everything as stiff as possible. I just bought a carbon Cannondale BB30 road crank for it. I have all the parts in a box just waiting for the frame and fork. Should be a couple of more weeks.

Thanks! They are Soma Walker bars. The new bike came with a flat bar, so I will trade them out with either these or my RB-021s.
