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)

The KMC 710 is great chain... cheap, strong, and bombproof.

And it looks good.

Unlike some of the bikes posted here.



Every time I see that Giant I throw up in my mouth just a little.

When people say a chain is "strong", I wonder what they mean?

Every chain I have ever used was strong.

Short stem + seat all the way back = weird.

Nice bike. Can't say there is anything wrong with it. But if had to pick, would say your crank and chainring is ugly.

How much height are in all of those spacers? 4cm? Thought so much space would look odd, but looks ok I think. Thanks.

I think the bike is fine, it's your photography skills that we should flame. Background is distracting. Low light. slightly blurry. composition is all wrong.

frame looks too small for the rider, not enough seatpost showing. The double chainrings have just got to go, looks half assed to me. Take off both Raleigh USA logos, keep the technium. And for the love of God fix the front quick release.

I think 531 meant frame was too big. Don't like the saddle or pedals

Yeah, frame too big. Handlebars higher than the seat. But I bet riding in the drops is pretty comfortable.

A fist full of seat post and a level saddle to bar drop works if you like a French fit or if you are built like an orangutan.

Lemond: Bar angle is silly.


As for mine, good luck. It's obviously perfect.
