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)

Building that wheel with a disc hub is the same as any other wheel...

Appears that the disc brake "converter" bumps up against the seat stay???

Personally I would have just gone with a front brake.

Gearing goes down significantly with smaller wheels. That's likely still a stiff gear, but it's nowhere near what it would be with 700c wheels.

This was baffling. Looks like ourys got some work in previous life (maybe on mtb), but not sure how they are used here.
Probably no fun to ride home with unwrapped bars in the rains.

Admittedly not as good as 'Mr. Flip-Flap Wheel' above....

https://sfbay.craigslist.org/sfc/bik/1435378169.html $550

If the post is up then YES it's available. This setup gets compliments every time I take it out. It's in superb condition and built with quality components and care. I'm selling the complete bike for this price. It's a 56 cm vintage 70s frame. The paint job is a professional powder coating. It's black and it's beautiful. The wheelset has deep, neon green rims. I can also include neon green drop bars and toe clips (no extra cost) if you want those options. Email with questions. I am happy to send you several much larger photos of the bike. Here are thumbnails you can click for more pictures

HAHA, I've seen someone's bike at school with that same setup! Bar ends on drops?! It looks so bad and uncomfortable...
They remind me of Mr. Garrison's bike

^^He had some pic of a guy in a hoodie with a black track bike and green veeps right? something along the lines of "this isn't the bike for sale, but it's what the bike looks like"

seriously, i would think he would have given up by now...

is anyone really going to pay that much for a varsity?
Sure, he put way too much effort into it (3 piece crank adapter, powdercoat, etc) but that fork screams $25 electroforged special from a mile away
