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)

I especially like how you could have that bike out of the lock in about 5 seconds with nothing more than an allen key.

chances are if you're dumb enough to ride bars that narrow, you're also dumb enough to have not greased the stem when you installed it, so its probably seized.

I would say that the kickstand is only the start of the problems here. That disc brake is begging for trouble with track ends. Those Leaders have built-in chain tensioners right?

wow......kick stand aside, a lot of effort went into that, building a deep v rim up with a disc hub, sourcing a disc brake converter that works with track ends. Whatever.... good for him!

There's another one at SMC and he has no foot retention too. I like watching the guy walking around and carrying his bike like he's the ****.

Especially since that guy would have had a much easier time building up a front disk system rather than figuring out a rear system that works with fixed gear and track ends...

I actually met a kid, with a Republic bike, that removed the front bike because he flipped over the handle bar. Well, I thought he wouldn't bother listening to me if I tried to explain why that was stupid.

You are right, it isn't "jackass". I just thought with the previous pursuit bike talk some people would get a kick out of it.

I'm thinking a running mount is the only way to even get this thing moving. Starting from a standstill doesn't seem remotely possible.
