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)

1. Wheels Mfg. 1/8" chainwhip - I don't have a lot of chainwhipping experience but the last time I removed/replaced a cog with my old 3/32" whip I decided to get the wider one due to slipping and disenganging issues. Got the new one and tried it out, it was very engaging, no slips no worries. I was surprised no shops sell them but I guess it's too specialized an item.
2. profile designs t2 wing bullhorns - like them a lot, the flat wing section up by the stem supports my palms and weight more comfortably than a round section. Plus they come in OS size, which I needed.

all thumbs up.
