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)

Vintage Raleigh frame fixed gear build!

1968-ish Raleigh Grand Prix frame, custom powder coat with pearl overlay, mostly Origin-8 parts, shimano 16t dura-ace, rethreaded BB, pedals/clips laying around the shop, and "Giant" cinelli bar tape! Nicknamed "Midna"...I am in love with my new bike!
