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)

Square taper doesn't strip. The burliest track guys use square taper campy cranks even though they flex more than octalink DA ones.

I'll never be a burly track guy. I just think having even more different standards for bike parts is dumb. It's bad enough already.

Come on baby, it's all for the geometry. It makes the bikes sooooooo fast.

I think it should be required that every track bike be raced atleast once at the velodrome.

wait wait wait did he say it makes the bike fast.... so how fast is your bike??? is it rolling down hill? you make the bike fast theonly thing track geometry does is stiffen it up a little and make it handle tighter....

Don't worry, I was being completely sarcastic about the geometry making you go fast. A lot of time I think that the only reason people say they love the track geometry and the snappier handling of track bikes is because they've never ridden a decent bike before dropping a stupid amount of money on a track bike. my whole comment about requiring every track bike to be used on the track atleast once was trying to convey the sarcasm of my first statement.

Oh yeah and FSA cranks are ballin'. I used to use them too. A little ugly, but ballin' none-the-less.

Sure they do, check Nova's website. Lot's of 1 1/8 head tube lugs out there, also check out Bike Biz's "Pig" or whatever they call it. Lugged frame with 1 1/8 headtube.
