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)

Nysss...

If you ever get interested in a 2A, I have a very clean 105mm with the same logo that I now realize doesn't see enough use to justify hanging onto it

So, does it have an external hex nut at the rear of the bar clamp ? Later models used recessed nuts.

It's not one of the real old ones and does have a recessed nut.

Yeah, I also have one like that. Unfortunately, it is black anodized and looks horrible IMO. Is there some way to strip the anodizing and restore the silver ?

Use Oven Cleaner or Greased Lightning Extra Strength to dissolve the anodization and polish it.

A black FSA 50T compact ring & silver KMC X10SL for my CX bike, plus a $2 T30 bit for my torque wrench to install said ring. I love how easy Di2 makes changing rings, just move the FD up or down and that's it.

/doin it right^^

At the rate scrod is using up NOS campy, I better start investing/hoarding in NOS campy.

And lemme guess, if scrod were to run a brake on the raleigh he would be running NOS deltas.

I was thinking of getting those exact style of pedals for my build as well.

Anyways on my end, also some Cinelli x Campy jack:



Maybe the otherside of Scrod's build, going with all Carbon C-Record and Cinelli pieces.

I recently got a Zipp Service Course SL stem for forty bones on eBay. Matched the Vuka Alumina bars and now I am like soooo fast wit' my speed weaponry...yeah hipster ******bag. Honestly I wanted something a touch longer and money and weight were an issue and I couldn't find a cheap enough Thomson.

I didn't want an integrated stem, a separate stem/bar combo give me more adjustability and the RAM XL fits the look of my frame and the rest of the component I've been compiling really well, trust me. The Mike Giant version is a bit too ostentatious for my taste...I'm going for a cleaner look that shows off naked carbon weave rather than graphics without buying chinese junk.

Nice score on the Zipps btw.

No for sure. I just love the ridiculousness of them, the are basically a Rolls Royce that has been "pimped" by some hot shot sports player. A clean look is always my favorite, plus nude carbon is always nice.

Thanks, I am quite happy with the stem.
