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)

couldnt tell you what it is but just bring the pieces into any half decent bike shop and theyll help you out. sometimes for some of those nuts and bolts, they will just hand you one for free if its out of a used parts bin

Go to your local family owned bike store. They'll most likely hook you up for free if they get it from a parts bin as said above or for a dollar or 2.

Try going to the local co-op or bike shop. I actually couldn't find a match in the parts bin at the co-op at first but later a shop hooked one up for free. Kind of bugs me that it's not a perfect match still but it works.

I think Missing Link is still the best of them, although it doesn't feel terribly co-op now.
