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 that a Messenger?!

I've been scouring the net for pics of it in black, because BD lists it as a color option but I can't find any evidence that it's ever been made in anything other than orange, blue and pink...

Alright, for sure. Wasn't so obvious to me--thought maybe there had been a mistake, since I could not find a single picture anywhere and the only reference to it was from one expired post on bicyclebunker. Sweet!

nice Uno.. i was wondering how they looked with a rack and fenders, now i know one thing though.. your front fender gap is kinda funky... but I'm pretty obsessive about fender gap

already fixed it

also fixed the bars and made them level. it's funny what you don't see until you take a picture.

Traitor Ringleader

got the frameset from a benefit ebay auction, Traitor had donated the frame for free to raise money for a guy's operation or something. got the frame pretty cheap, so i bought a fork directly from Traitor. Really cool guys, talked to dude on the phone for quite a while.

pretty decent steel frame, their newer models are even nicer (nicer welds, super nice seat tube opening whatever that is called). no im not a shill lol but i like the company anywho...

lots of leather, just like my pants...jk...all the walnut studios stuff were presents from the wife. a little much but whatever

and first set of wheels ive built. well, i took a coaster brake wheelset i had for a while, bought some purple nipples (lol) and unassembled then reassembled with a formula track rear hub.

kind of a cheesy build but whatever its been fun around town/commute/single bag grocery getting.

Bianchi Pista Concept

The track bike build thats never been to the track
like 3 hours from Hellyer...maybe one day. been busy, got married, etc.

but we've been thinking of moving back to the bay area so then id be there most weekends. till then its the "too much bike for me" bike that I ride on the trails for exercise. definitely fun to ride though

i have drops for it but yah i dont feel like bending that far down. front brake because im not cool enough (can stop. do want to.) ps just saw premium rush last night finally lol...oh the pads are cork so dont seem to be messing up the sidewall. brake is more for emergency anyways so it dosn't get used too much...

reynolds track 66 deep wheels are LOL especially for me but whatever i payed a little over a 1/3rd of the msrp so neener neener
