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 just bought the bike and havent really messed with it. i have mks sylvans with double straps i can thrown on it but i wanna try riding with the platforms for now. im not too keen on risers. i want to go to drops eventually. and i dont have a reason to upgrade the chainring so im going to leave it as is.
