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)

BCD?

110 bcd should be fine. It's not exactly new technology, the original mountain bike cranks were 5 bolt 110 bcd, and compact was 5 bolt: 94; 4 bolt: 104.

It's good to take a day off every now and then and let your body rest. I vote yes.

About to drop an order later this week; but before I do, do you think the A23 rims would hold up my fat ass (210lbs)?

Scrod,

My Devil frame has nodes on the downtube designed for drive-train specific applications. Being that I built this bike up as a FG/SS they're not being used. Handsome did such a good job with this frame, that leaving the little rubber covers on seems like an injustice. Is there some chrome option that was/is designed/jerry-rigged to cover them?

Scrod,

Any idea if there are any relations between Bianchi(gun holsters) and Bianchi(bike stuff), or Nitto(tires and automotive stuff) and Nitto(bike stuff)?

Probably not. I've often wondered about Nitto but have never bothered to look into it.

I am need of mid level chrome riser bars (31.8). My old ones were Ritchey, which were fine, but they don't appear to have what I need. Saw some Origin 8 for dirt cheap ($20) but I not sure if that is too cheap.

Thoughts?

Yeah I checked it out before I posted. Leader seems to be too small but the other Sub(urban) joints seem cool. So is that a co-sign for them?

Scrod,

Do you know any good inexpensive fixed gear centric (always find bmx) chain tensioner? The MKS ones seem very nice but also expensive...
