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)

Use your spider senses. You'll get it!

I've got a fancy new-fangled air compressor at the shop but my go-to floor pump is the Topeak Joe Blow Sport. I've had one for about three years with no issues whatsoever.

Well **** me! Just realized I got an early Christmas present from the grand dad. Goddam air compressor.

Was wondering what the hell I could use it for.

That's awesome.

I wonder if I know a guy who can get one, and I wonder what it would run me.

And then get one of these so you can giggle like an idiot at the fart noises it makes while you put grips on.

What do you think of something like Sun Ringle Black Flags mounted to All-City Sheriffs (28 spoke) for a multi-use wheelset?

I'm pretty sure Black Flags are designed for disc use and don't have a brake surface.

Does anyone know of any good internal 1 1/8 headsets for under $100? The only ones I have found are cane creek. I was looking at the 40s series but I didnt know if there is something better out there.

Why not the FSA ZS-3?

The ZS3 - as calv so rudely suggested - is not an internal headset but a zero-stack external cup headset.

FSA does make plenty of internal headsets for under $100 though.

Also, I figured it out, it was the brake able on the top tube. Spidey sense ftw.

Thanks Ill look at fsa. Also I picked up a pair of nitt track drops today and I was wondering if there is a preferred way to put a brake lever on them. I only know about reverse internal-bar cable levers I was using but I dont want to drill a hole in these ones. Thanks.

a lil more open question to everyone here, how often does bikesdirect restock kilo TTs? I'm looking at the tt pro but Im a bit short of cash. I just wanted to hear others opinions before i do something drastic to get cash in case they restock regularly and I end up feeling like a fool.

and yes I know there is a email list I can get from them, and I know there is no way to be certain, i just need to know if I should purchase now or wait till spring-ish.

Why the **** are you asking this in my thread? This thread isn't for asking "everyone here", it's for asking me questions (and I obviously don't work for Bikes Direct).

E-mail Bikes Direct and ask them.
