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)

I had a pake frame for about three weeks. They are pretty nice for the price. ride is pretty smooth and the handling is a good mixture of track and road. lots of fun.

The purple is great.

No, the frame is drilled for a fork and the lugged fork that came with this set is also drilled. This will be my second Pake. I was able to get my forst one under 20 lbs with deep v's. Im a little interested in seeing how light this one comes out to. I loved the way it felt. By far the best bang for the buck frame iv ever owned.

Iv ridden tubulars for a little bit now and the ride quality is so much nicer than that of clinchers. I do not flat to often. (knock on wood) I am prepared to deal with a flat. I have spare tubular tires and a bit of extra glue. Iv got it down pretty well so swapping out a tire to get me home should not be a big deal. Only time will tell if it becomes to much of a hassle.

So to answer your question, yes, I will be ridding these on the road.

How so?
I found them to be smoother, more predictable handling, and they feel faster. To me they feel batter planted to the road.

I bought the frameset through a distributor where I work so I paid wholesale. As for selling the fork, I might. I want to assemble the bike with the chrome fork and see if I like it first.

Well, most importantly I'm building up a the new steel Langster. As far as parts go, I'm using all these as well:

Tange head set
Nitto Dynamic stem
Nitto RB-021 bars
Nitto Dynamic seat post
Sugino RD2 crankset with 103BB
MKS track pedals
Dura-Ace cog and lockring

Instead of the Soma Okami, I'm going for the Regal. They look almost identical, but the Okami is about half the price of the Regal. Do you know any of the major differences?
Also, I'm using Mavic cxp-33's w/formula hubs (for now) and Conti gator skins. Pretty flippin close. The cranks and wheelset is coming off my current ride, but I'll upgrade those in the near future.

I'll post pictures in a few weeks when its all done.

I guess the funniest part about this whole thing is most of the parts im using came of a steel langster. I got one when they first came out and traded it for a pinarello pista. I really liked the langster but thought the pinarello was a much better bike. I did not rip the guy off because I let him know the quality of the pinarello before trading him so dont get mad at me for that.

I ran nitto cromo track drops instead though.

I had a red and chrome one.

Here is what it looked like when I had it.


As for the Regal/Okami debate. I ran the Okami because it was cheaper.
