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)

No, this was from a real camera. Canon 7D, I believe.

Mt Tam:


It was kinda ridiculous how many people couldn't believe I rode a fixed gear on this Mt Tam loop. Almost as ridiculous as how long my legs were sore afterwards.

Johnny, did you put together your bike or did an LBS?

I found out (after a flat this morning) that I had tubes in my tubeless wheels (same rims/tires as yours). Just wondering if that's the norm or if my LBS was being dumb. Gonna go pick up a tubeless kit tomorrow and test things out.

Yeah, I'm assuming the LBS just threw tubes in thinking most people have no idea what tubeless is and if they flatted, would freak out about not having a tube in the tire. Who knows.

I'm picking up some slime and valves today, will be tubeless this afternoon.

but if you're going to do it, i'd suggest a latex based sealant (like stan's) vs. a fiber sealant (like slime).

Ahh, mine came with ultremo zx's. I picked up the stans sealant as well. However, I popped the bead at 120psi, so I gave up.

They make ultremo's as clinchers and tubeless, c'dale website says tubeless in the specs...wonder if they're the clinchers and not the tubeless tires? I need to go investigate. However, I think I'm going to give up and sell the wheelset. I have another set of carbon clinchers on the way.

GMJ missed the best podium photo, but can humble brag like no other.



This is also the podium that I can take the tiniest amount of credit for.

Indeed it does. It's not crazy bright, but it's quite nice at night, and was pretty cheap -- from bikeglow.com
