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)

EAI bareknuckle

So lately I've been in the market for a frame, and decided to go look around some bike shops. I walked into a store and saw a gleaming white bareknuckle frame/fork with a FSA headset for sale. and it was my size. Needless to say I bought it, but that same night I flew out of the country to New Zealand (where I am posting this from). So moral of the story is that I'm in new zealand (can't complain about that) just itching to build it up and ride it, but I can't for the next two months

I'm jealous, I want a bareknuckle


any idea on what you're building it up with? A clean white frame gives you a lot of options

hmm...it depends on what you'll be using it for but i'd love to see something like

mavic open pros (or any low-profile rim) laced to formulas with soma everwears (white sidewall)
sugino 75 crank w/75 chainring
you said you already had a headset so boo, threadless would be my choice on a clean frame
saddle depends on what is comfy for you, but something like a kashimax fg4p
MKS sylvans/double straps
if you're gonna go brakeless, Nitto b123 track drops. Realistically I think some bullhorns would be more comfy
and it might be neat to do something like blue track nuts, just to set it off a little

so go ahead and build this bike and then mail it to me
