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 feel like this is finished enough to post, now. Still need to dig up a black/black Arione somewhere and get a 7-speed freewheel.

It just needs to be moved forward a tad, maybe lose one spacer in the stack as well.

pretty sure hes talking about the white cork
fyi it was an oldschool practice to shellace cloth handlebar tape. keeps it on better, more water proof, and looks cool because the shellac will give the tape a darker, caramel-ish color tone. i did it to red cloth tape and it turned a nice burgundy maroon. tends to look nice with older or older style bikes with brooks saddles.

i believe some people also shellac cork tape. i did it to some cork tape i had, and it got kinda crackly and not so good looking...although it could have been cuz it was maybe not actual cork tape but synthetic cork and perhaps the two react different with shellac

Pretty sure the white stuff is synthetic (Ritchey branded, not nearly as good as Cinelli). I will hold out for the Brooks bar tape.

That's because all your posts are way more C&V than SSFG.

(Don't worry; I read this subforum most because it's most entertaining, but my heart lies with my C&V road bike. Such blasphemy. )

+1 for shellac or matching honey bar tape for the Stout.
