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)

Yep, trimmed it myself. Took maybe 15mins with a box cutter and some sand paper. I have done it to another one of my Brooks saddles as well -- I dig it!

I've thought about doing that to one of mine. Did you draw lines first or just wing it? Got any tips? I might give it a go.

In order of preference... at the moment:

Eddy Merckx MX Leader: (go to for road rides - Shimano 9000/6800 mix)



All-City Space Horse: (gravel/chill ride/bar bike - Gevenalle/Shimano 2x10)



Lemond Maillot Jaune: (doesn't fit, frameset for sale)

How did I miss this? Really nysss...

I've ridden a later model B'stone RB-1 for longer than I care to admit so naturally I am a GP fanboi and follow the doings at Rivendell. I am constantly tempted by his bikes and they always have my size in stock on the completes they say are on "sale" - but all I have to do is look a 2nd time at what I consider the overly high prices and the generally meh mechanical bits they build with...and I always pass on them. Maybe I am more than just a little jelly of yours

These are the 2 I ride the most. I'm still working on piecing my K2 back together and finishing the bar swap on my Paramount.
