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)

Here's mine. It's a great bike for the price. I got the carbon fork upgrade for $30, and it was worth it for the weight savings. I've since made some upgrades, such as lighter Kenda Kaliente tires, carbon seatpost, a 48T chainring to replace the 46T, and 90mm stem instead of the stock 110mm. Very comfortable overall, corners great, and feels very stiff when I stand and mash the pedals (which I do most of the time). The paint isn't very durable, though, so make sure you have some satin black touch-up paint, because you'll need it.

very nice^^^ What size crank? 165? Do you notice that eightinch raised the bottom bracket 10mm compared to other bikes?

Yeah, 165mm crank, because it's what fits me properly. I read they listened to customer feedback after the first set of frames were sold, so when they had version 2 made, they raised the BB. It was a good choice, in my opinion.

happyrobot, I absolutely do not like a single part on that bike but for some reason, as a whole, it is kickass.

Yeah I figured since I actually did read your post. But kudos on putting it together anyway.

Looking pretty sweet. I'm thinking about buying one of these framesets to step up from my conversion, maybe white with the carbon fork.

Eighthinch is out of the white frames and most of the balck ones. I think the white frame was something temporary.
