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)

Just completed my new wheels. Black phils on black CXP33.

I've been experimenting with alternative lazing patterns and came to the conclusion, that this pattern is far superior to all other patterns.
Feel free to copy.

Agreed. Looks to be much more versitile that way. Is it a front wheel or back? Both. I think you're on to something here...........

Those are going to be absolutely killer looking on the bike.

a friend of mine eccentrically laced a rear wheel just for fun. it's weird to ride it. you give it a few pedal strokes to get going, then you have to gallop it to go anywhere.

Personally, I prefer a longer wheelbase.

I don't think that its possible to lace 2 hubs into 1 rim with multiple spokes at some of the holes.

I'm baffled to see, that some people actually think anyone would laze a wheel like that(you are kidding right?).
It took about 5 min to make in paint.
But anyway just had the time to take a couple of pictures of the whole setup.
Just upgraded(or downgraded) my campy hubs for phils and my open pro to cxp33.
See the old setup here: Old setup
I'm quite pleased with the results, now i just need a upgrade for those campy cranks. Thinking of black tune cranks(a german brand).
Our velodrome is opening in 2 weeks(after a roof collapse). I'm taking her there for the first time ever. Can't wait to try it out, i'm a little nervous though, thoose bankings look crazy steep.

I don't like your bike one bit. I hate it so much that I think you should just ship it off to me for destruction.

Black tune cranks... yummy. And I suppose they wouldn't be too terribly expensive in Denmark?
