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)

"Thumper"



41:20 for slogging through the snow...



Swapped out the boat anchor crank last night for a new old Sugino XD that I singulated... was an easy way to drop a pound off the bike and improve the performance with a lighter / stiffer crank.

Not gonna lie but KOGA should've ditched their own name and went for Miyata when they bought them out.

Why? Koga is a far better display name - and is a known brand for many years now, if you talk about the old koga-miyata bikes, 80% of the time you use koga, and leave miyata out.
