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)

didn't have time for a proper "photoshoot" on account of the rain that was about to come down and the insane winds pushing these barriers over, wasn't even going to try and balance the bike on something. need to make some saddle/seatpost adjustments still.

Very nice build, hamfoh! Hopefully you got the right size this time? Not another Leader situation?

would be very hard to repeat that, the TTs on the 725 are just that much crazier than anything else I've ever been on. I could manage a size too big or a size too small on just about any other frame

Seriously. I really like my RHM02s.

Angie has some on her 721. They're very similar - maybe a little flatter on the top bends - and the drops flare outward just a wee bit. Super nice.

Yea, I have WPC's. I was just wondering how the RHM02's compare because I was very close to buying a pair instead of WPC's.

it's very weird not having a bottom cup/race thing for the headset on this frame. I noticed the vigorelli has a massive sized one but there's that little gap you can see behind with this one. I thought mine was MIA or the guy who installed it lost it until I came home and looked online and noticed that it appears to be the norm. Can't remember that ever being like that on any other bike I've owned.

on a positive note: just riding the bike the little 2 miles I got was amazing. maybe it was the weight difference from riding my soma all week or the sugino 75 vs omnium, but something about it made me feel like I was floating. Can't wait to do 25 miles on it tomorrow

From the interwebz:



Looks pretty good, IMO. Good thing I'm back at school and jobless, or I'd probably have one coming.

You did tell me that before like a year ago. I was super jealous then, and I'm super jealous now, and if you ever sell it I'd probably get you a good price providing you tell me a couple months before hand so I can save up and starve down. hahaha
