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)

Turned my mountain bike into a commuter, for the time beeing, I'm too hurt to ride trails or ride fixed so this will serve me well. I already had the tires and pedals anyway.
Changed the 29er tires for some 700x32 Panaracer crosstown tires, plataform pedals instead of clipless ones and put the saddle from the destroyed big block.



I only rode it on the sidewalk in front of the LBS to get a feel for it, it's a nice ride but my ankle still hurts.

Not to hate or anything. I even had a Concept 2006 back then also but I've seen this bike quite often and so did everyone else.

Thanks. Those are some cheap pedals from eBay. I didn't have enough funds for pedals yet but I will upgrade them soon.

Name any card game. I've played it. Competitively.

Fun stuff, not gonna lie, but bikes are more fun to throw money at.
