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)

Jaytron just inspired me... What if Premium Rush had Vin Diesel in it? Instant blockbuster. Here's to hoping Premium Rush 2 is just 2F2F with bikes. Illegal sw8 fixxay street racing with underbody neon lights and NOS tanks, I think it could be a thing.

Was ridden around the block only. Not a fan of fixed...waiting for freewheel. And Wabi wheels. And tires.
However. ... Rear brake is not decided. Handlebar wrapping is not decided. Pedals too.

I was thinking.. Alex Sub rims.. BD use them on 700x40 tires (Motobecane Cafe 8) ...and on 700x23 .. Are they that universal or just only when BD want them to be?
it is 622x17 and it should be good from 25 up to 37... according to smart people.

I wouldn't put 35+ tires on such a narrow rim. I tried it and it looked sketchy

I'm not sure about 23 either... My 2 y.o. son would pull the tire from the rim with two fingers...

Has anyone found a solution to covering up the decals on the Grape Soda (Purple) Kilo and having the color match (pretty close)?

I'd like to know what kind of vinyl to use and where I can find some. Thanks
