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)

Well, welcome back to ATX and the forum. Saw your Breezer which I'm sure you will enjoy around the CenTex trails.
I always enjoyed seeing your bikes especially that classy townie you had.

Not used to riding off pavement and ended up getting lost yesterday and found myself on some rocky/roots single track which was interesting. Need to prioritize getting tubeless set up.

Purged bikes a while back and no longer have the townie or the nature boy either. While I was sucked into a black hole I also had a little boy(pretty late to the game) and sort of had a hiatus from riding but am getting back into the swing of things again.

Sadly the soma also got neglected for about a year and a half before I sold it. When I built those wheels I repurposed the hubs from a wabi wheelset that I used to have. Have always spun smooth and fast.

@franswa cool to see a pic of your Rush again. Seeing that bike on here was a big reason why I bought one.

Sure thing. My build went a little different direction than yours did - I had initially set it up with drops but my back prefers townie bars and being upright these days

Thank you! And no, those are 28s. Fyxation's tires seem to run a tad wide - they're a pretty tight fit.

Gave my single speed to my youngest son. Now it's roaming the street of New York city.
