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)

New Big Fix-ish Raffle on FGG

$17.50 per ticket, 60 tickets available. What do you win?

A pretty damn solid conversion. Quality (IRO) wheels, UN72 BB, Tange (!!) cro-mo, lugged, and all the braze-ons still on it. Even if you are against conversions, you could make this a pretty sick road bike by putting gears back on it...

Full specs:
Says Bob:
Centurion Elite RS specs:
-Seat tube length (C-T) - 23"/58cm
-Top tube length (C-C) - 22 1/2"/57cm

-Wheelbase - 39 1/2"/105cm
-Bottom bracket height - 10 1/2"
-Tange #2 Cr-Mo double butted frame. Tange Cr-Mo fork.
-Forged drop-outs (with adjusters) and fork tips.
-SR Supercustom with 42t aluminum chainring.
Cog: -17t no-name cheapie (new)
Bottom bracket: -Shimano UN-73
Wheels: -New IRO track wheelset with IRO (Formula) hubs.
-DiaCompe Royal S. DiaCompe levers with good hoods. The right lever is bolted solid.

This bike looks virtually new. I did not rebuild the headset because it was nice and smooth.
