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)

Surprisingly, I never weighed mine before I built it up.

Found this on my local CL (see second bike) for a Leader 725tr. Seems like it's pretty reasonably priced. Too big for me, or I'd go take a look at it.

Yeah, the cranks are garbage, but even w/o them I think the rest is worth $375. Those wheels / tires are decent, worth at least $150 alone and you'd be hard pressed to get a frame + fork + headset for less than $250.

Yeah, it's just a really cheap crank with the chainring swaged onto the crank arm such that it cannot be removed. Kinda like this p.o.s. >>> http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-ROAD-BICYCLE...item20b6596dbe

Bump again. New Easton EC90 full carbon seatpost and Tioga Spyder saddle, got the weight under 16 lbs. If it gets any lighter, I'll have to tether it down so it won't fly away.

I'm only 5'-3", so you're a giant compared to me. There's no point worrying about stuff you can't control, and you just have to adapt. Still, I'd rather be short than super tall. At least I can fit in a normal sized car or bed.

How do you like the Tioga Spyder? Is it as bad as everything I have ever heard about it?

Well, I just put it on today and rode for about half and hour on smooth roads in my hood, and it felt fine. I was just wearing sweat pants and briefs, no padded cycling shorts or anything, and I could barely feel the edges, so I think it'll be fine. When I first took it out of the box it felt really hard and unforgiving, but I think it's just shaped very well to provide the correct contact points. It's got a center channel to remove pressure on the perinium. But I guess it's just a matter of personal preference. I like hard saddles, and also find my Brooks Team Pro saddles comfortable.

I thought that saddle was nice and supple because it would flex under you.

Hm, interesting. Thanks for the feedback.

I'm looking around for a new saddle, don't know what I want yet, tired of my Arione.

I need to weigh my 722 next time I'm at the shop. I'm guessing around 18-19 lbs.

My 725 isn't finished yet but will most likely weigh around 18.
