Will do. The old chain was the original KMC Z-72, so it was about 7 years old. I may change the cassette as well in the near future, just to be thorough.

Well, I put a SRAM PC-850 chain on, and it shifted fine without a single extra adjustment. I'm kind of surprised myself as I was expecting it to be something more.

I'd love an electric fixed gear with an e-skid lever. Just squeeze the lever and it locks up the back wheel. I guess that would be like a brake, though. Damn.

B190 feels really comfortable, but I'm wondering if I should be concerned about this front spring. What are the chances it'll break and stab me in the nuts?

Not sure if the rails are thinner on the multi-rail saddles. Would make sense, though.

In any case, the Breezer adapter and Kalloy seat post were roughly the same price. Could have gone either way.
