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)

Here is my commuter/city bike, with recent changes. New this month are the handlebar and the Sturmey Archer internally geared hub.








Since picking up the frame for a song two years ago, Iíve completely reconfigured it at least three times. Itís had fixed gears, single speed, and now three speeds. Track drop bar, bullhorn, classic road drop, and now riser. No brakes, one brake, and two. Iíve tried two different seat posts and at least three seats. Itís not that I didnít like any of the previous setups, I just have trouble leaving stuff alone. Iím always looking to make it even better for its intended purpose (which varies according to my mood and changes in my overall bike collection). Each time I've made a big change, I liked it better than before.

If you look closely, youíll see I was not afraid to use a few hardware store parts on it. Most of the components are really good stuff, though. I especially like the PDW fenders and the cargo rack. Iím quite happy with my Brooks saddle, too.

My wife gave me the rear hub as a Christmas gift, and I built the wheel on it myself. Turned out pretty good for my first one.



I prefer to route the shift cable along the top tube and seat stay, instead of the more conventional down tube and chain stay. One reason is to prevent interference with my heel when the crank comes around to 9:00. It almost interferes with a pannier on the rack, but actually clears.





This bike is versatile, durable, and comfortableÖ but also heavy. Itís everything my Parallax is not.

Since I got it put together three weeks ago, Iíve ridden it more than all my other bikes combined. I keep a dedicated headlight, taillight, and tool pouch on it so itís always ready to go. I can honestly say I LOVE this bike.
Glad I'm not the only one with bike configuration change sickness :-p. Lol. So far on my fixed gear this year I've done 2 brakes, 1 brake (want to go back to 2 now lol), 17 degree rise on the stem, 6 degree rise, then 0 degree rise (probably going back to 17 ha).

Those are both Alex Pardee prints. I will snap a pic of them when I get back to Ohio to share with the class.

I've always said if you've gotta have an enormous tumor on your arm, it's nice if it turns out to be a narwhal. Of course, this is extremely rare.

I'd love to see a full description of that build. Trying to ID components and can't quite get there.

Awesome! I hope she gets in. I don't have an artistic bone in my body, but I do love collecting art.
