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)

pista concept front fork problems

Alright, so the integrated washer on the IRO tracknuts is too big to clear the lawyer tabs on the front fork of my new Concept. What is the diameter of the front axle on track hubs? Do you think I'll be able to find track nuts that have smaller washers to clear the tabs, or could I just use nuts with a washer from a hardware store?

Other question: I realized while looking at the frame that the bottom portion of the rear nondriveside track end is bent in about 3 to 4 millimeters (a hair more than the thickness of the steel insert on the track ends). Should I just bend this back, mail it back and get a different frame, or just ride on it?

file off the tabs to clear the locknuts. Don't bend aluminum dropouts. Call Bianchi and ask for Jose.
