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)

Just picked up my new All City Nature Boy. Ordered Nitto riser bars and stem from RG for it as well. Bigger tires are next.

I am still riding the same old beaters... should have the 1975 Bridgestone Kabuki ready to show off in the late spring.

For those who are just tuning in...


1951 CCM - conversion from coaster equipped model.


1955 Raleigh Lenton Reg Harris, original fixed gear model.

Good eye...

I took this picture right after I had installed a different saddle (Ideale) and blasted off to an event... it got adjusted right after I took this picture. YOu can see the saddle on my Lenton which is level where it needs to be, which is across the back.

i think the frame was an old shimano 26er and the fork was from a 27 commuter. chopped some of the frame brackets to fit the 700c wheels.

First post - I must be living dangerously starting with photos. I've been lurking, reading and learning here for a month as I worked on my first fixed gear bike. I just finished converting my favorite, old road racing frame to fixed gear. The frame will be 24 years old in April and the current re-paint looks great considering it is 22 years old. Tubeset is a mix of True Temper RC and RCX with Columbus dropouts and Henry James lugs. I'm planning on lacing up some new wheels so I temporarily went with a VeloMine special in the rear and my original Campagnolo Strada Hardox rims laced to old Record hub in the front (perfectly true, laced it up in '90!).

Still toying with the idea of a brown B17 Swift and matching bar tape, though as-is she's been pretty good to me so far...

Pricey. I picked up my brooks and bar tape about 2 years apart and they are a DRASTICALLY different colours. They look hot, feel great.

I dig that idea... maybe even finding a silver thompson stem? but by all means, it looks like a fantastic bike.
