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)

1991 Olmo Sanremo Columbus Cromor frame with odd mix of components. I used to ride it with drop bars, chasing expensive carbon bikes on the local climbs. Put on flat bars to give it a new life as a towny bike.

Antonio Taverna did a a great job building me a cheap but custom Deda Zero-Uno frameset to the exact specs of my Merlin Extralight. Custom stem and post would triple what I spend on this bike, if not more. Wheels were fitted for the photos, I have a similar set but with already worn GP4 rims and I'm building up a set of high profile Record hubs from the spare parts box with polished low profile Campagnolo Omegas.
Started using it on July 29 for daily commuting and some touring and crossed the 3500 km mark today...

Very odd combo with road clipless, but I still like it.

Nice. Ditch the Kashimax and road pedals and you have one classy comfy ride.

Agree with the previous comments about ditching the road pedals. Prefer using pedals with steel toeclips

What type of saddle is that? Looks like a stripped Concor?

Mmmmmmmoots!
I have been lusting of adding a vamoots to my stable for so long that I totally forgot they made MTBs too.

wheelbuilder.com stickers need to go though.

Musical wheels

Same old bikes but a lot of wheel rearranging:

1. Soma Rush gets new Wabi wheelset with quick releases.
2. Dolan Pre Cursa gets wheelset from Soma Rush.
3. Bianchi Pista Concept gets back OEM wheelset that had been on Dolan Pre Cursa.
4. Paramount P14 gets back original custom racing wheelset with Campy Pista hubs.
5. Leader 721tr gets carbon rear wheel that had been used on the Bianchi, but with a wide 25mm road tubular tire. Both wheels have Milwaukee Bicycle Co. hubs, but the front has been rebuilt with a Velocity Escape rim after I trashed the front carbon rim by driving over it with my pickup truck.
