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)

My first build!!





Well here's my first build, basically everything is brand new. Im pretty satisfied with it for now. Im still waiting for my pedals to come and i might make some changes but not sure yet.

When building bike, be sure to fix spoke cards before putting pedals on or properly adjusting... anything.
