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)

part 1 - first picture looks like a link in a chain. Not sure about the other campy part. Bottom bracket perhaps.

part 2 - looks like a campy drop out with adjusting screws

part 3 - from the grit, some part of the drive train. I think its a chainwheel.

Sohi, your pictures are beautiful! i love how the tight macro and short focal length render them almost abstract and give them a grand scale. I would love to see them as larger prints.

I'll throw my guess in here, Totally off base, cause I don't know my parts, I'm getting there though, but my guess is these are parts off an old school italian ride. Or a bike that's been through a freakin' fire, thus the soot on everything.

Here are my guesses:

1. chain link
2. brake cable holder thing
3. headset locknut
4. ?
5. cable ferrule
6. ?
7. adjustable BB
8. fork end
9. ?
10. limit screw thing at dropouts
11. seat tube junction
12. ?
13. ?
14. ?
15. seat post

Did I win anything?

Very nice macro shots btw! What kind of camera?

thanks for the compliments guys! the pics where takes with a canon 300d and a 50mm f1.4 lens with
extension tubes. the camera is not mine I just borrowed it. I love this look with just a tight
focus plane.

here is the solution:

1: chain link
2: brake quick release
3: upper part of headset
4: handlebar plug
5: that one is a bit unfair I know. Its a spoke with a bit of reflective tape wraped around it
6: part of chainring and bolt
7: campy crank bolt (chorus I think)
8: holes in the chainring
9: rear cog with part of chain visible on the left and the lockring on the right
10: limiter screw on rear dropout
11: screw on 3T stem
12: thats the lower lug on the headtube with the headset visible in the lower right corner
13: inner side of the handlebar mount of a cyclocross lever with part of the spring visible
14: rear brake hole
15: seatpost / seatpost lug

some got it pretty correct. Its tricky to make a riddle balanced...not too simple but also not
ridiculously hard.

vrrrooooooommmm TURBO!!!
