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)

I agree (not the pie part though). What's the point of starting a thread to show us your other thread? I don't get it. What's the point of me posting a response.

Oh right, to defend pie.

clarification - a PINK bike with a front brake. And hell yea, I'd do it again. I am far from being used to Seattle's hills. Chicago is damn flat, and I can manage a track bike there. But also note WK - I have NEVER said anything about brakes one way or another. Too much bad juju...I am way too superstitious to point fingers and wag 'em.

In case you missed this thread (problems w/ sugino75 cranks on steamroller), here's a highlight:


check out the spacing William...

Hmmm, a creative person with a technical bent becomes a purist? ....Good luck with that, I gotta tell you it's way less fun though. There's more than one way to skin a cat and the fun part is trying them all.
