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?

Nekkid Single-Speed Road Bike Frame

http://www.nashbar.com/bikes/Product...49_-1___202389

Any experience with this frame? It has really good reviews and is just what I need.

Can you guys post pics of this frame completed in 50cm?

Don't listen to Nagrom, he cannot he even spell his girlie name forward.

Guys, I got this.

GT4 - welcome to the forum. I will be handling this request for you. Be advised that it usually takes a few days to get the parts ordered, the bike assembled, and photo studio set up. (The photos should be pretty quick because we are using a one-hour lab to do the developing these days; technology!)

It might be tough to find an appropriate team, this being the holidays and all, but usually the guys around here jump right on these requests. I will update the progress here and include any changes to the proposed schedule.

A few questions:
What color tires do you want?
Are you going to be rocking this whip fixie brakeless (I'll assume yes)

The rest of the team will be along with their questions soon.

I come from a road biking background and have many friends that ride track and roadie, so I already know most of the terms used on this forum. Colored tires are for hipsters imo. I'm getting rando rear and gatorskin front. Of course I'll run brakeless =D.

I like burritos with cheese and ketchup. I know, it's odd - but it's tomato-e.

I've ridden with a couple guys that have the road version of this frame (vertical dropouts) and they are satisfied. Not the lightest frame in the world but $100 is a good deal, according to them.

I'd be worried about toe over lap on the smaller sizes. I notice on the geometry chart the seat tube and headtube angles do not change as the frames get larger.

Neither of them know what worn chainrings look like, if you catch my drift.

Does bbattle's response seem like he's trolling? No. Some of us like to have fun with people who break certain taboo's, like coming in and throwing around a possibly perceived attitude in threads, though. These reactions happen in all hobbies and cultures, and subcultures and so forth. It's also the Internet. Sorry dude.

Also, it's a $100 nashbar bike. You say you've already read good reviews, yeah? There you go. Or adversely, you can go down to your nearest co-op or LBS and interact with real people instead of ordering your bike on the interwebs, because (and I hope you're sitting down for this next bit of news) people surprisingly used to do this all the time before online mailorder, etc. became a thing. You might even get properly fit and support a small business while you're at it - terrifying as that may be to some.

Just some friendly food for thought man, happy holidays

Gotta love this place. Instead of banning the obvious trolls, they just let them change their names and continue being ********.

Running rando rear and gatorskin front is more "hipster" than colored tires. The colored tires trend has now been reduced to only sparking interest in <15
