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)

Aluminium sweetness

So I've come to like the Dolan Pre Cursa a bunch and wanted to take it on longer rides, but it lacks water bottle mounts. No problemo with the Two Fish strap-on Quick Cage. The base conforms to any tube shape and the velcro attachment strap is long enough to fit even the largest frame tubes. The seat bag contains a spare tubie, mini pump and peanut butter wrench (15mm box wrench for the wheel axle nuts for you non-trackies). The weather is beautiful today and I'll be heading out shortly.

Got my basket mounted after some work, bike shop only had them for 26.0 bars and I was impatient. Going to have to grab some axle nuts without such a big washer, I have them mounted backwards at the moment so they will fit. Just need some rain and I can mount fenders and get super commuter mode.

I picked it for a track frame plus I got a super good deal, but it's a huge piece of **** so it's become my beater.

The red's so nice it adds an extra 7mph to your average speed.
