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)

it's funny because I hadn't paid much mind to it (just built it last week) but when I posted a full size photo I was like 'wait what's wrong with my fork?'. I need to look into it tomorrow. I certainly hope not, as I bought it from a BFSSFG member

Holy hack job.

Get a new crown race and don't install it using a brick.
