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)

Got a new fuji today

Anyway I know a lot of people don t care for the obey, but I picked it up for what I thought was a fair price of 475. Velocity deep v rims and soma bullhorns, I am glad the drops are gone, it is too much gold for me with them

What you think?

Too much gold for me. Otherwise, not bad looking.

That looks great, sounds like a good deal, but those bars look humongous on that frame. I would replace them with smaller ones: Nitto, Syntace, flop chops...

A lot of people cut down the ends of the Soma Horns. If you don't find yourself using all of that extra material, it is well within your rights to lop it off.

Obey s are not drilled for a brake in the front, typically they never have a brake at all, but i just feel safer with one
