    Light weight fixed gear build

    Looking to hear your opinions on a fixed gear I would like to build. Thinking of getting a state bicycle black label frame set with an essor carbon fiber fork. Plus the SRAM s100 crank to come with it. Also comes with a headset. Want to keep the weight under 19lbs. Wondering what your thoughts were on a wheelset under $200. Any ideas appreciated.

    You could put jalapeno hummus on a hamburger to give it a kind of spicy middle eastern flavor.

    Immediately take the brakes off. That will shed all the weight you need. Check all four ways when crossing intersections.

    Godspeed, young prince.

    I heard that if you take a few of the spokes out of the wheels it really shaves the weight.

    A Wabi wheelset.

    It's the new Kilo TT all purpose answer.

    Why pay the money for that frameset with cranks, and then throw 200 dollar wheels on it when you could just buy the complete version of the bike and tweak it over time?

    If you want lightweight, hit the gym! It's simple if it jiggles it's fat!

    Jalapeño hummus is delicious and might help you knock off some pounds if you replace that with some of your junkity foods!

    Why do people imagine they can build light weight bikes that are good quality on low budgets? For heaven's sake, what do you think you're paying for in the better quality bikes? Funny stickers?

    At the lad's soccer club later today. Can't decide whether to have the egg and bacon sandwich or the hamburger with the lot (real Australian burger - beef mince patty, egg, bacon, cheese, onion, lettice, tomato, sauce - Mignon in the canteen makes the BEST burgers). Buggerit, I'll have both, I'll feel ill but I'll have both.
    I had a good bike ... so I FIXED it
