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.

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