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)

Hit me up if you do, I might be interested.

Was thinking about some November Rails, but the Reynolds would be just as nice.

Kool Stop Continentals for my SS Raleigh. Nice and quiet with great stopping power. Nothing wrong with the old Dia-Compe pads, just wanted to change things up. They will go live on another bike in the build shed.

Ha, it didn't even occur to me that you were using it on a disk setup. I've got those brakes on my new carbon road bike, and they are absolutely phenomenal.

Yeah, I rode the whole group on a carbon road bike at a shop to test it out and everything about it seems to be stellar.

Those have to be one of the best feeling brakes I have ever tried.

Bike shop didn't have the pedals I wanted, and said his distributors didn't even carry them, so I ordered from Amazon.
Didn't pay attention that they were coming from Japan - should be arriving 4 freaking weeks from now.
Shoulda called Scrod's shop.

The postman just delivered a pound each of bright red mettalic and chrome powder. One of my dull old beach cruisers is getting a major facelift next week. Rims, hubs, bars, stem....everything. She's going to look like a Candy Apple 1957 Chevy hot rod.

Campagnolo seat post came in today. Installed it on the frame and seat to see how it would look. Also snagged a a 2004 C-record carbon crank 10. Decided to go with the UD carbon version instead of the 1st gen 3k carbon version after reading some Campagnolo propaganda.

Some cheap mustache bars and brown bar tape for my cheap conversion, gotta cut them down a little though because they are obnoxiously wide.
