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)

Finally satisfied with the build on my road shark. Now I want to build something dumb. Maybe an old merckx or zunow cannibalized into a flatbar roadie with a 1x9 drivetrain.

No matter, this thing does not ride like a touring bike. Short-ish chainstays, short front-center (gasp, it has toe overlap), and narrow fork. I may have added rake when I was realigning the fork and now it feel fast and responsive I'll just call it my CX bike for now.

I wanted to build up a touring bike for less than the cost of a complete bike, and I did it.

Yeah, I plan on getting new fenders and those ones fit on my BK perfectly so I did not want to adjust them too much. Its kind of a pain to get them back to fit on the BK.
