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)

Thanks. I was wondering if they were 28c, which is what I was considering next for the "plush."

I built this this summer from used and/or dumpster parts. As you can probably tell, I'm poor. Lack of handlebar tape is because I'm lazy, never wrapped handlebars and wear grippy gloves while riding anyway. Seat's a little low in this photo. Oh, and excuse the non-drive side.

Masi Speciale

Masi Speciale 56cm set up as singlespeed, 48/16 gearing, cages, front and rear calipers. Olive green Chromo frame. From the bike shop since I don't have my tools or space, I bought this mainly for the frame and big components. I'm looking for cogs.

Got a free bike a while ago but never cared to do anything with it, needed a rear wheel and a seat so I just slopped something together from the parts bin. Its magic geared at 42x16 right now, rear brake was broke too so I'll pick one up tomorrow. Just gonna use as a grocery bike for the house and mild offroader.
