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)

Lager Thread...

In doing my searches, I've come to find that there are a good amount of SE Racing Lager owners here. Posting this thread for pics of built up or just plain ol' OEM Lagers (and Lager cousins like Fujis, Dawes SST's, etc...).

Will post my '09 Lager tomorrow.

For me, it was between the Woodgrain and the Cool White.
Could only find the white in my size right away so I jumped on it.
A Brooks Saddle and Brooks Saddle bag would look great on that Woodgrain Lager.

For mine, so far just a set of campus pedals (SPD/flat combo).
Fizik Aliante saddle going on next then mostly light upgrades
(tires, tubes, brake pads, bar end brake levers and maybe tape).

I thought about making my bike all white until someone pointed out that all white bikes look like ghost bikes.

Then I thought I'd add all kinds of colors (blue, red, yellow, gold, green, etc...)
for each component I upgraded because it'd look great off of the white.

Then I got to thinking that I'd go with black upgrades
(saddle, tape, stem, bar, crankset, wheels, etc...).

Then I remembered, this is my "get around" bike and the CAAD is the real upgrade bike.

So, I just decided to keep the tires filled and keep the drivetrain lubed and keep it clean and ride the heck out of it.



(However, the saddle will definitely be upgraded along with tape, tires, tubes & brake levers & pads.)

That's an old picture, I've replaced the stock clips & straps with All City clips and Wabi double straps. I'll probably go clipless when those new DZR shoes come out. I'm considering a new wheelset too.

I have a set of OEM Mavic CXP22/C3 wheels on my Cannondale that are
black and that would look really nice on the Lager, but if I upgrade,
I might as well try to make the bike lighter while doing it;
So I think I'll leave the Mavics to do "beater" duty with my CAAD.

I have no idea how much the stock Lager wheelset weighs
(a quick search turns up roughly 2050g for Alex R500 w/Shimano hubs),
but I think I'm going to go with a set of BWW wheels in the 1450g range.
I suspect I'll easily drop at least 1.3lbs there.

I'm going to see how much of my CAAD's parts I can transfer to the Lager just
for color effect (all black Tektro 310 brakes, stem, post, carbon fork, etc...).

I'm trying my best "not" to spend money on it, but it's a struggle.
