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)

Got a new frame. Dialing in fit with a threaded-threadless stem adaptor before splurging on a quill stem and some classic drops:



Or selling the whole thing off and starting from scratch...

Do as I did and replace the garbage hardware with some solid bolts + locking washer and it tightens it up pretty nicely. Just hauled back an 18 pack, two pizzas, U-lock + gear on it and it's fine going over bumps. minus the fact that the bike is too light and wants to flip over.

That is the stock clearance on a Kilo TT. Move along, nothing to see here.

It's not a SS or a FG, but I think it belongs in here

It's a 2011 Marin Ignacio with a 2 speed kickback hub that came out of the box about two weeks ago. New seat is incoming.

And yet another reason why we don't believe a word you say...









Historically, supercorsa road framesets never had lugged forks.

Bit of a frankenbike, and the reach is a bit much for me, but it works (just)


Stock, it looked like this (8 years ago):

Probably from a non-Cinelli bike. Cinelli did (and does) supply framebuilding parts for a lot of other companies. Cinelli was very fond of the sloping Supercorsa fork crown on their own road bikes, and the flat-top pista crown for track.

Thanks, need to add a link to the chain though. The new tires barely clear the rear brake bridge.
