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)

Man, common sense really goes out the window when fixed-gear kids put their bikes up on CL. Apparently to some, parts swapped off of a bike are included in the running total of a bike's worth....

https://boston.craigslist.org/gbs/bik/1630219861.html

Mercier Kilo II Frame 53cm, but because its a track bike, it rides like a 56cm. Anyone who rides a 52cm-57cm bike should be comfortable on this frame.
Velocity Deep V wheel-set with Formula 1 Hubs and SECA tires
Tippo Uno leather saddle.
Nitto Bullhorn Bar wrapped with Bontrager Gel Bar Tape
Crank Brothers Eggbeater 2ti pedals. Not pictured but come with the bike.
Front Brake
Shortened Origin8 front stem.

I'm looking for 900 OBO, with is about 300 less then i've put into the bike. the bike has less then 45 miles on it since full rebuild, and has been stored inside every night, never seen rain for more then a couple hours with extensive drying. I can deliver to the greater Boston Area for the cost of my gas.

How have you guys not seen that? It's always on the ads here.


Maybe not jackass, but check out that gearing.

And I would imagine he stands and mashes to pedal it. I'm not sure what the point of that bike is, though- jumping from ramps, maybe?

Back when I was a kid racing BMX, it was pretty common to run 44/16.

Custom [??] Built 53cm Surly Steamroller in Like New condition in a deep rootbeer brown color with brown accents all the way around. Very Low miles. Comfortable and stable upright riding position set up with a flip flop rear hub for BOTH both single speed freewheel riding AND fixed gear riding.

...

Why this bike is great:
It's Better built than a Bianchi Pista any day of the week. These Surly steamroller frames are built extra strong and can be ridden hard for years hold up. They are extremely durable.

Well aside from the FUGLY color scheme and the pista thing, it doesn't really strike me as horribly jackass.

EDIT:
NM, just noticed the price.

Did you also consider no foot retention and the dangerous tower of spacers?

I would be hard pressed to consider that worth 900 even if he included the swapped outparts as well. $900? AYFKM?

Definitely chain sag. But is that many spacers actually "dangerous"? Also no foot retention but 2 brakes so not totally jackass.

LBS said the maximum stack height should be 30mm, or it will be unsafe to use on the road. That guy seems to have over 60mm.

ah I hadn't noticed the spacers or chain sag til you mentioned it now.

I thought about the foot retention thing, but since he seems to be riding freewheel it didn't really raise a red flag.

"IF YOU RIDE FIXED BUT UR CALLIN IT A FAD PLEASE STOP BEING A ARROGANT EGOTISTICAL PRETENTIOUS HIPSTER *******, AND START SEEING IT AS A MOVEMENT "

isn't it funny, a statement like that is exactly what a hipster would say, and of course every member is decked out in plaid shirts, rolled up pants, and VANS eras.

Micro-mini's typically have a file tread tire. When you're that lightweight and riding on such hard packed dirt, you really don't need knobs. check out what they were using for the Beijing Olympics:
