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 Peugeot's Before and After

Thought I'd share my old Peugeot framee .

~Deep V's/ Vittoria Zaffiro (front) Vittoria Randonneur (rear, double layered)
~MKS Slyvan Pedals/ Soma 4x Clips/ All-City Leather Straps
~Izumi Singlespeed Chain/ 1/2" x 3/32"
~42/15 ratio (Republic Bike's 15t cog/ lock ring)
~Ditched the front brake
~Cut brakelines on toptube/ downtube/ chainstays
~Respray of same color (after photo doesn't show)

Fun bike this was but now I'm onto my 727tr build

Comments , Bash , Talk . What do you guys think ?

Did you put anything over the spots you ground off? They'll start rusting pretty quickly once exposed to the elements.

Yeah I repainted, but the 'After' photo doesn't show I sold the frame before I could get another shot . Looked much cleaner imo .

Yeah, I was planning on painting the fork black and change the grip tape to black but I figured selling it, making profit and buying a newer bike would be better .

Sorry, but that thing is ugly. What "color" did you paint it?

I rattle canned it a darker grey . Like I said this bike was fun for it's spin, but I got over it . I'm on a 727tr build right now, but I'm broke just waiting on $ . &yess that **** was rattled sprayed . I got the bike for less then $50 can't remember how much exactly, but I stripped it and turned $100 profit .
