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)

In before lueky and his bikes.

As for parts, my bike is so cheap that I don't even know what's most expensive.

My most expensive parts are Sugino 75 Superlap BB, Sugino Zen Racing chainring, Phil Wood hubs, and Brooks B17S Imperial. I didn't pay full retail for anything but the Brooks. I did splurge on Nitto lugged steel seatpost and stem, for a combined total of $250. I'll be eating ramen for a long time.

I think my most expensive single part purchase to date must be the DA 7900 road hub set I paid $350 for.

Distant second would be a DA 7600 track crankset.

My SRM track cranks arms and computer head unit were just under $3K...and I still had to buy a BB and chainring bolts for it.

Yeah that is pricey, but are completely functional for what you're using them for.

My favorite except for Dura Ace bolts, which I'm not sure I can get without buying another set of DA cranks.

Road bike- Campy to Velocity Razor wheelset, which came out to around $350 total because I bought smart.
Fixed bike- Cinelli Alter stem at $75 used.

This is not counting frames and stuff that came off of other bikes like my Miche cranks and Brooks Swift. Both of my bikes are pretty cheap and solid.

I think each one of my parts hover in the $70-$100 zone, so I guess my saddle? heh. not counting my b43 since that's a rim, spokes and a hub!

My wheels were a lot. H+son rims (when they first came out at $110 each), dura ace hubs ($250), cheap spokes ($50), blue powder coat ($50) = $570
I should have skipped the powder coat and gotten nicer spokes, but oh well.
