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)

Hoods are a little low, and the bars are pointed up to compensate. I wish the rear light was black instead of white.


Awesome bike.

Red chain on an otherwise murdered-out build, Schrader valves, jack handlebar angle, no foot retention, slam that rear wheel, needs front Aerospoke.

No mention of the chain guard? You might be slipping a little...

there's nothing wrong with your stem, but I don't care for the look of a Brooks saddle and a threadless on the same bike.

I cut aquateen some slack because I own the same Moto-bacon.

When I find the right stem I'll tape the bars..

Oh yeah, I also don't like the blackwall tires.
