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)

I added a few new parts to it for my B-day. I added a front brake with a Paul E-Lever, a Surly Chain Tensioner, nitto bar ends. Also trying out a longer stem.

Is it just me, or does the rear triangle look crazy long? nice set up though. I'm building a Pista right now as well

Long time lurker, first time poster! Here is my bike:



It's a Windsor Hour I got of Craigslist recently for $100 recently, plus some of my parts, which include: Fizik Saddle, Weinman DP18 wheelset (got cheap off a coworker), and Origin 8 bullhorns. It came with risers which I like a lot, but I just decided to rock the horns for a while. Super happy with this setup for now.

EDIT: sorry for the crappy cellphone picture. I need a new phone badly.

I don't have a set of drops for it yet
I do have risers, but I'm still considering a pair of track drops.

The rims are factory painted, I believe they came from a 2010 Rush Hour.

Finally got my summer bike all put together. Needed something not carbon + clips for bar hopping, and something that is more gravel/dirt capable for hitting up the swimming holes. It's set up with a 17/20 dingle cog + 47/44 chainrings and a 20t freewheel on the other side. I tried to go as cheap as I could for the most part, reused a lot of parts I had sitting in the garage, hence mismatched headset spacers and chainrings, white stem, and 144bcd track cranks. It still needs the brake levers (no lbs had 24mm clamp levers, so had to amazon) and some kind of bar wrap, still not sure what I'll do. Black or light brown wrap? Whole bar or just the ends?



Dat 33mm tire profile on the 27.5mm wide rims, mmm.

Yeah that cars sick man, I need to go take my license test. Been thinking of getting something like that and learning a little bit of car mechanics. I'm 25 and don't have a license yet, gotta get that done this year.

Unicrown forks are perfectly fine on mountain bikes...

I really, really like that one. I totally want a 2013 Unit -- hopefully I'll be able to afford one this fall.
Sadly, not that many Kona retailers in Sweden so might not be able to find one at discount.

By the way, is that a 20" or 22"?
