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)

Why did you repaint it so the new green paint looks old?

well, tested the generator weds night, works perfectly...and i got a BONUS.
since my rim still wobbles a bit, i can set the gen to "hit-n-miss" so i get a "flashing "effect!
worked so nice i had a car honk at me
best part is: i cant feel hardly any drag on my wheel when i ride
will get a pic of the semi final ride tomorrow

trx1. Perhaps confusion at your thread would have been minimal if you showed a before and after of the frame that you were intending to build up. (In this case, the green one.) The heart of a bicycle is the frame and using that as the center for your before picture would have made a lot more sense to me.
