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)

I want a bike exactly like this, but 26" and with some front travel.

I think you're implying that you want a muddy bike.

Dang, 26" XC rigs are really getting hard to come by. I thought they'd already hit rock bottom last year.

I should probably keep an eye on eBay for another fork to keep in reserve for the KHS. That'll keep me going 'til I'm too old to ride, probably.

Might as well post pics of the other olde steel MTBs.

Park Pre Pro 825. 26er with 700c wheels up in there. I can't touch the ground at all on this thing but it's still fun as hell.



The grey 'goose has 9-speed road levers nowadays. Still adjusting cockpit here, levers not quite in right spot yet. Got a road crankset on there but haven't got pics of that yet.

I'm not sure how much you want to spend or how soon you want to get it, but for the past week there have been many bmc 26ers on Chainlove for ridiculous prices.

Another chubby chaser. Nice. I want a fat bike, but we don't really have any sand or get any snow.
