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)

For those that don't know Jack you'll probably recognize the his piston tattoos on his calves. And here's Megan's latest build
i met jack and megan at the first cicLAvia through some friends. jack let me borrow one of his helmets for the ride. they are very cool people.

This is really cool, maybe we'll start seeing some of this show up on their single-speed frames as well.

Can't figure out how to embed the video, help?

Probably bolted-on.

Take a stroll through Speedplay's Pedal Museum and you might find them: http://www.speedplay.com/index.cfm?f...almuseum.intro

Because the maker doesn't own a TIG welder and has little experience welding, but does have an oxy/acy setup and knows how to use it?

Brazing and Tig welding (or any welding for that matter) are two entirely different things.

Apple discontinued their pic hosting so I'm in the process of switching to smugmug. If you like shiny, you may like these:
