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)

My "new" hybrid... I upgraded the stock shifters, brakes, derailleurs, cranks, and pedals to Deore DX and LX parts.

It is my light winter bike and should make for a nice summer ride / loaner as well.

Here's my road bike in it's current state:



Put on Red shifters, Rival derailleurs, and some 105 chainrings. Wheels are Archetype rims that I laced to a Dura-Ace hub rear and a no-name hub from bikehubstore in the front.

I sold my Cinelli mash frame to build another track frame up but then came across this 2013 Jamis Icon Pro. It was the last one a shop had and I picked it up for almost 40% off retail. Brand new not 1 mile on it. Im really happy with it so far. My first road bike to.

So far I have only swapped out the Bars saddle and seat post collar. I still need to pick up a set of bottle cages the one on the bike is a random one I had laying around.

I still have a track bike I use for commuting.

Thanks! I spent the last 2 weeks riding it as much as I could and adjusting everything. I feel really good on it.

i never thought to actually check and see if it was something horrible.

haven't been here in a while, but I'm so happy I got this back I have to show it off. This bike was stolen from the shop I work at by a "customer" that I was "helping" while we were open. He waited for the perfect opportunity to walk out with it. Long story short, I got it back and rebuilt it. Now it's time to ride the doors off of this thing.

What?! I never heard about your bike getting stolen. How did you end up recovering it?

This is my work-end lock-up beater.

Early 90s C'Dale M800 "Beast of the East" with typical cracked off plastic cable guides, 2-3 layers of spray bomb.
- Double chainring (med, low) front shifted by Fox shock lockout switch to Suntour FD.
- 8sp out back shifted by cheap Gripshift to Sachs New Success RD.
- Innova studded tires.

This is from yesterday, when I rode in to work. Today, I'm not even going to try to get in.

Wow!

i would only change the crank bolts. I would rather see it with the proper Campagnolo bolts. Beyond that, fantastic.
