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)

Added a bottle cage and tool bag with spare tubular tire, mini pump and peanut butter wrench to make the Concept fully road worthy. Heading out shortly for a 40+ mile ride.

Tilt the saddle up toward level, give the bars a slight twist down, project complete!

Doing that in the morning! But I want to upgrade components as well. Great ride out of the gate though. Thinking about getting a threadless converter for that quill stem though. Any thoughts?

Hmm. Threadless. Well, it won't improve your ride any, but aesethetically a quill stem does look very nice. Lucky for you, the Pista comes with a 1" steer tube which will save you a lot of hassles. (if you had a 1 1/8 inch steer tube, I'd advise against it completely) A threaded stem conversion will also require a threaded headset (easy, might need a bike shop to help with install) as well as a threaded fork. You could convert your unicrown fork for the job by having threads cut, but if you are looking to spend money on new parts anyway, why not look at a lugged fork to complete the job?

So you'll be replacing one dumb little stem with another dumb little stem? Good call.

KEEP the threaded quill setup. It looks so correct on that bike. In the 1 inch size there is a good variety of lengths and angles available. Don't convert it.

Yeah it looks really good. I was just worried about options since most bikes are 1 1/8" threadless these days. I think I'll keep it though. It does fit. Thanks!
