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)

My little tank :)

Its a Origin8 Fix8 that i did an experiment on, fattest tires i could fit, originaly the biggest on this frame are 700c 38mm, i managed to squeeze in 650b 45mm Kenda K1118 (27.5x1.95), all the parts i had in the bin except the brakes, the handlebar is temporary, waiting for a riser bar and short stem (then i'll cut the steerer)
Will use it on road/gravel, its really heavy but fast and comfy

I don't think I've posted the Romic before. It's an optical illusion with the slanting garage, but it is a pursuit frame.



The GT with risers

Bravo on the GT and Romic!!! I got new bars, tape, wheels and tires (glued by me) for my track bike:





skateboard grip tape is for madison and only necessary on the left side


not sure about that camo

Swapped out my carbon fork a steel one that's been laying around my garage. Wish I had done this sooner, as I like how it rides quite a bit better now.

Some beauties in here. Haven't ridden a singlespeed road bike since leaving the city. Thinking a mixed surface setup is in order soon.

Matching grips are seat bag is a nice touch. How does it ride? Always want to try one.

I have long-legged syndrome. Also it never gets ridden for more than 50-100 laps at a time so it doesn't need to be too comfortable
