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)

Is it just me or is that stem installed way higher than the minimum insertion depth? Looks like I can see the top piece of the wedge peeking out over the headset.

Agreed, if that's a nitto jag, the min insertion line or what they call "III MAX HT III" would be at the tip of the end of the bar clamp. That's just a reflection however.

Today I finally got a freewheel for the Fuji (been single speeding on a 6-spd cogset up til now), put an Ideale and some creme tires on it. I still don't know about the tires. The back one is lumpy so maybe that's a sign to go back to black. Reckon it's time I remove that reflector and figure out my chainring situation. I'm thinking I'll put a bash guard on in place of big ring, maybe make my own bash guard by grinding teeth off an old wasted big ring.

It's a 6.9 SSL Project One paint Madone. RL rear wheel, Aeolus 7 from wheel, chop and flop Bontrager XXX lite bars, XXX lite stem. I've swapped out bars though. This was my other road bike, was playing around as I was switching group sets.

Was it replaced with the Fuji Track 1.1 or something? Where did the Fuji track 2.0 go

I believe the Track Pro was replaced with the Track Elite but I don't know about the 2.0.

Been zipping around on my Centurion cruiser lately. I found this build to be very well suited for riding in my area.

I hope I didn't sound like a jerk, I'm just suggesting he adjust his brake pad to prevent wearing out prematurely. It's not exactly a trivial detail.

Yes, because it can make or break the bike.
