Totally agree about the noise. I've ridden plenty of 1/8" fixed gears and most of them were quiet. I think it comes down to the crank and cog, too. Question, though. I'm running all 3/32" for the first time and am paranoid of putting too much stress on the gear. Should I switch to 1/8" and buy a new crank and cog? Or am I just being paranoid?
