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)

agree on the crankset, but i kind of like the look of those bars, they look like they would be comfortable for the type of riding i'm looking to do.

I like the extra lever, symmetry is nice.

And I don't think you can get just the capo as a frame set, I already looked around a bit. Used on ebay is probably your best bet.

Headset: Campy record 45/45
Wheels: Phil wood custom, slotted, campagnolo bladed spokes + nipples for front, 2001 campagnolo shamal rims
Crankset: Dura ace track + 49T Dura ace 3/32 ring
BB: Dura ace 7710 (soon to be 7700)
Pedals: Dura ace SPD-SL PD-7810
Tyres: Veloflex pave (now vittoria corsa evo cx 320 tpi)
Post: Chorus carbon post
Seat: Selle italia SLR
Stem: Thomson x4
Bars: Vision base bars
Levers: Profile design carbon levers
Brake: Campy chorus skeletons

I got this as a frameset only as a favour from a cannondale dealer. I don't think it's available normally through retail channels int his fashion. The only thing I wish this frameset would have was an all carbon fork.

i figured they were custom hubs as they look nothing like campagnolos hubs and they are shamal rims. i actually have a set of 9/10/11 speed shamal, but i would rather use them on my road bike. ive got a chorus post and brake on my fixed gear as well, but i opted for a chorus bb and crankset.

ive debated seeing if the cannondale shop would sell me just the frameset.

if thats a reference to the wheels you are mistaken. i have seen guys cyclocross shamal wheels and i have seen more than one person around 180lbs on them (and they have owned them for years)
