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)

This is the first thread I've resurrected from page 2.

Should I buy these wheels? Wondering what my chances of survival are here.

So cheap.... I doubt they'll explode and kill you. If I were you and needed some affordable carbon clinching goodness I would go for it.
And don't worry if they happen to kill you we won't make a SS/FG-wide buffoonery of you. We'll all be very, very, saddd. /feels bad bro cuz my bro died cuz of china carbon sad.

To y - foil or not to y - foil? The decision of which will be an arduous trek.
On another note, it really helps to have connections, a cycling buddy's friend of a relative has one in new years resolution/ collectors condition in my size that he wants gone.
I always struggle at these want vs. need 1st world problems.

Should I sell my fixed gear to save up and get a nice road bike?!

On the fence about selling my fixed gear to save up and get a nice road bike! I really like it, but think I could put more miles on a road bike. Should I just sell the frame and components and save the wheels to make a conversion later? or should I just wait and save up and keep both bikes? I built this baby up myself and am sad to see it go, even though it is just an Origin 8 Del pasado... Should I just get drops and brakes+hoods?!

I've been happy with my Omniums, but not thrilled with them. I had to file the back of the spiders because the thickness was not uniform(I had a set I returned to Scrod prior that was seriously bad), and I managed to flex the DS crankarm 5-7mm into the chainstay. I wouldn't buy Omniums again, I'd probably go with Dura Ace just to try something new. They're a track standard and there is a reason for it.

There was a DA crankset on the paceline forum for $250 shipped. Looked real good. Not sure if it's still there, but it was recent.
