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)

custom chainring for 80 bux, kinda cool

http://www.fyxomatosis.com/index.php...hk=1&Itemid=92

you choose tooth count, BCD, even how many bolt holes (ive been needing a 3 bolt for some cottered cranks) and even design. i dunno, kinda cool i guess if you are looking for something very specific....

sorry for sharing ;(
didn't know about that other site, indeed cheaper....but nothing about 3 or 4 bolt chainrings. although i dont think i would pay even a 1/3rd of that for a 3 bolt chainring for the cottered cranks i have.....

i thank jesus for my scrawny legs. those weaklings doing that summer ride around france use 110bcd, but skidding while riding to the bar merits 144bcd.

**** those lycra wussies, they don't know what it means to be putting out some real power. if i wasn't riding full njs i would have snapped so many bottom bracket spindles and crankarms. i don't want to even think about a non 144 chainring. hell, even that's pretty shady, i'm going to upgrade to 151 soon to kill all flex.

I almost tore my sister's jeans yesterday mashing past a bus to run a red light, I am the king of fixies

I'm never buying a non-110BCD crank again.

I'm actually partial to my 94BCD cranks, but that's a dead standard.
