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)

Besides myself, you are the third person I've ever met who knows who Toots and The Maytals are. I like you more every time you post.

I feel the same way about my wife.

Yeah, I'm not sure who Tim Reynolds is, but I'll put it this way: I went and saw Toots opening for Matisyahu a while back. During Toots's set, most of the crowd was wondering aloud who they were.

I may end up aborting the mission, as it will end up being the exact same bike as my 725 with a couple of slightly wider tubes.

On the Lizard Skins slippage... I've had the very same problem. I taped them up, the tape slid on the flats (of bullhorns), pretty close to the corner. Had to undo tape, which ruined a lot of it, so now have messed up bars. I'll probably try Skins again, but if the second experience is anything like the first I'm going back to Fizik.

[QUOTE=Scrodzilla;13246210] Pro tip: get yourself a 2" bolt with the same threads as a standard crank arm bolt and thread it into your spindle (through the BB tool) to keep it from falling off while you're installing/removing.


GENIUS.
