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)

My SS commuter next to my friend's carbon Scott after a Sunday ride around Koko Head. Nothing fancy, just a cheapie Cali made frame with some modifications. Let's say that'll be the first and last time I ever dare go that fast downhill.

my second fixed gear..last one didnt fit me at all so it got sold quickly..still needs fenders and fixing the saddle angle but so far i like it...60 dollar total cost using leftover parts so i'm pretty pleased.

Finally got around to building up my Wabi. It's raining like crazy out here in California, looking forward to hopefully getting the fit dialed in on Sunday, though. Next up: Install front brake.

2 centimeters bigger and it feels so good. Also rb-002's are the tits. In other news the left crank bolt has started loosening itself which sucks. Don't own crank-pullers so gotta take it to the LBS and get it checked out this weekend. Not excited about that.

You need to check this video: http://vimeo.com/81150158

My new Cannondale, mostly done. Trying out these bars and stem I had in the shop. Pretty sure the 8cm stem is too short, hence the lack of tape.
