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)

Y'know, you'd probably get positive replies if you started a new thread rather than trying to threadjack two separate, unrelated threads with the same question.

While I see you point, if you look closely you might realize that I was not asking for help on finding a caliper that fits my bike in this thread. I was providing an explanation for my bike having levers but no calipers.

That's not OCD, that's correct thinking.

Yeaah... I, uh, realized that later. I didn't see your bike on the previous page, and this was the second thread I saw the same question in.

I was wrong here, sorry, about that.

Hey, no problem man. Your're right, I probably shouldn't of asked for help with the brake caliper in the other thread.

^^^ The Dolan looks perfect to me. The saddle to bar drop is way too much for me, but that's just a personal thing.

Here is the latest edition of my bike. I realize the styling is going to clash with a lot of peoples tastes, but at least it is better than it was before...


Last time I got this...

I have been kinda digging the stem. I think this stem looks much worse on other bikes though than it does on mine. Though I just scored a vintage Salsa stem for super cheap, so that'll go on when I get it. I really like the way this bike rides though. It is very tight and responsive. The new Flites just seem like cheap rip offs of the original. I wasn't impressed with the ones we got at the shop.

I like the color.

Valve stems are lined up on the wrong logo.
