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)

well good deal none the less for a chainring. I got a set of 36h wheels that need rebuilding, and I am tempted to pick up that $40 hubset, but its going to cost me another $50-$75 to build the wheels up...just doesn't seem worth it when you add up everything

Bens Cycle currently has free labor on wheels if you buy the rims/hubs/spokes from them. I don't know what the final prices will look like, but it might be a good deal?

It just says minor cosmetic blemishes our marks but they've all been inspected and have the full warranty.

Damn, that 20% off code is making buying a Rambler really tempting. But I already have a Chrome Citizen and can't really warrant a second bag...

AaronH can you adjust the release angle on those pedals? That's the only thing keeping me from getting that package right now is that I can't tell if you can or not

Man, the Rondels are tempting. Do you know how long the deal lasts?

Five years ago I would have said my Volvo is about $20,000 beyond what I'd ever pay for a car. Go fig.

NICE. What did you apply under? Did that randomly show up, or did they email you that you were in the program? Man, I completely forgot I applied for one.
