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)

Just got my Surly track hub!

Well, I swung down to the Bike Church to pick up my freshly delivered Surly track hub. I was disappointed with QBP originally for not making a 36H Silver Fix/Fix hub. Oh well, I'll just get the single fix. When I looked at the bag, I was very annoyed. Free/Free, 36H Silver. Not at all what I wanted. I opened it up, and sure enough, there was a Fix/Fix, Silver, 36H track hub smiling at me!

I have a DA cog already, but I'll need to get a lockring. The DA ring that I ordered was sold out, so I'll just buy a Surly from the Church. I've got the DA threaded on the hub, and it looks like I've got plenty of room for the lockring still. So, I'm stoked.
