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)

Thanks Calv, I just want to get a matching set of cranks, and either when Velomine restocks their TB14s to formula or Scrod has a sale I'll buy a new wheelset.

yeah I was too lazy to take a link out of the chain; it was all river side MUP riding so I never got to a place where it would have been much of an issue

Nice, I am thinking of getting those. And I really like your setup, looking at the Pake frames they seem so plane, but I really like how you did yours.

This bike is super comfortable. I'm not crazy about the bar, though. I need to switch it with a Cinelli that has a rounder bend and deeper drops.

I don't think there is anything wrong with that, unless it it something like a Jamis Sonic or other rediculusly thick tubed aluminum track bike. That just seems so unpleasant to ride on a street to me. I think wabi is really the best at making a fixed gear road bike that doesn't pretend its going to see a banked corner.

To be fair it's only set up the way it is because it's currently my only bike. When I finish my roadie it'll be my designated track bike and occasional burrito getter.

i agree with the bar swap idea... but i'll be damned if this isn't one of the best looking conversions i've seen. well done.
