    Trying to build a new bike...

    Okay, I thought you guys could possibly help me (from what I've read you've all seemed nice). I'm currently trying to put together another fixed bike, and I can't seem to find a complete list of all the various parts that I would need. Could anyone provide me with a link, or even post a list? If you could, thanks!

    Oops, I guess I kinda miswrote that. I actually got my first one off a friend, and since the components are getting old and the frame is having some difficulties (it's a custom) I figured it's probably time.

    EDIT: POW!

    Step one: look at all the parts on your current bike, paying attention to what they do/where they go.

    Step two: buy new parts and build your new bike.



    btw - welcome to SSFG!

    I agree with everything except the bold sections. 1/8" is not needed. I run 3/32" drive trains on all my SS/FG bikes and have never had a problem. 3/32" is quieter even.

    How is it quieter you probally have ramps. Witch make it noisier. You've just never chain jumped becuase you dont ride fast enough.

    But 3/32" drive train wouldn't magically make everything all quiet.

    no, i was addressing the second (bs) half of his statement. 3/32 is not going to be any less reliable, it's not going to jump if you "ride fast", and it is better accepting of an imperfect chain line.


    ive hit 160+ rpm many time on a bike with a 3/32 8spd chain, a ramped chainring, and an imperfect chain line.

    It was more or less directed at Deshi...I guess I should've quote him, huh.

    I don't agree with evilcryalotmore's take on 3/32" either. Clearly, there are 3/32" chainrings that are not pinned and ramped and those are what Deshi was talking about(I think).

    also, you need to get the right 3/32" chain. they make one speed chains, and they make less flexy ones for gears too. it all has to do with tension and the rings.

    Not all 3/32 chainrings have ramps.

    I hope you're being sarcastic. The width of the chain makes no difference as to it's likelihood of jumping off. Derailer chain works perfectly fine for FG/SS.

    I ride a non ramped, non pined 3/32" Shimano chainring, 3/32" Shimano Dura-Ace cog, SRAM PC-991 9sp chain, very slack as far as tension goes. Never dropped a chain with this setup. Not the most perfect chainline but not horrible either.

    I never said it would magically make it all quiet. Through my experience running same equipment in both 3/32" and 1/8", i.e. both sizes in Dura-Ace cogs and Sugino chainrings with the only difference being chains, the 3/32" has been quieter. Could have been the chain but I highly doubt it.

    I run SRAM 9sp chains. PC-991 most of the time. Quality rings and cogs. Slack tension.
