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)

And to everyone who said the boom gets weighted and the seat becomes level, you are way way off unless that dude is about 700lbs.

The horrible stitching and binder's twine on the top tube protector is highly insulting to Burberry.

if one is going to upholster something in plaid, one should take the time to ensure that its lines remain straight. saddles are the wrong object, but that top tube pad has no alibi.

here is an interesting one, put his sprocket on the side of the hub for the previous disc brakes
not sure if there is even a lock ring.

of course there is no lock ring - the cog is bolted onto the hub.

This has been done a lot, particularly with disc front hubs spaced out to 120. First one I've seen with a rear hub, though.

that makes sense, though, he's not putting it on a frame with 120 rear spacing, he's leaving it on an mtb with 135 spacing.

I liked that rear mtb disc hub conversion. It has a lot of kludgy charm.

if that bike gets some track time there's nothing wrong with it. those wheels could even be street specific and he has a nice set for race day... even if it's not perfect it doesn't deserve to be in the thread.

Its another case of i need a 56cm frame but all i could get was a 53.
Classic case of 'Must have NJS frame syndrome'.

I disagree. The top tube pad and pink tape could go, but otherwise I like that bike. Baskets are good.
