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)

New wheelset day! Mavic/Formula

CXP22/Origin8 hubs.. Can't believe how much smoother the ride now. Well worth the 140 dollars shipped from Velomine.

just weighed this baby... only 18.5 lbs

also is it better for me to leave the negative rise so I have more reach because the frame is a size too small or should I flip the stem and make the rise positive 5 degrees so the bars sit a little bit higher??? what's the better fit?
