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)

anyone with experience with origin8 cogs?

the eai 17t i found was a little pricey. around $40 shipped.

i know i should go cheap on the cogs, but 40 seems a little much.
i would suggest against just getting a cheap cog. the common advice on this forum is to just get any cog and it'll work fine. in my little experience, the cog has a lot to do with the chain tension variation. so getting a good round cog is important. imho of course

you def have a point, but i think the common advice on this forum is to never go too cheap on the cog.
but yeah, if the origin cog is good enough for vixtor, i think it should be fine. haha...hopefully. the cog i have right now is just unbearable.

shipping to US is like $15, which has the saddle at under sixty still. Don't know a ton about the saddle personally but a friend from work swears by 'em.

Did you guys who got the ibike2010 deal on Chrome get your bags? I called in asking where mine was and they said they cancelled all the orders that were "unauthorized" because the code was "compromised"..

Well I got a shipping notification and mine is somewhere east of North Salt Lake Utah, coming via FedEx "slow as ****" shipping.

I expect it'll be here in another week or so.


Pretty lame that they're reneging on their coupon, though.

I just posted up two new bags, both on sale for 15% off. Been making more of these Commuters and Commuter Minis with reclaimed vinyl, they're super green and sustainable. Check them out!

Nope still have it...not sure why it's not listed. There are 2 actually, and of course you could always order one if I don't have any in stock.

Probikekit currently has a twin pack of Michelin Pro Race 3 tires for around $50. I have a set on my road bike and really like them.
