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?

thats a polarizing car, but purists can sleep easier knowing it was all drawn over a layer of clear vinyl. i wouldnt have the stones to let someone freehand directly on either!

nice! i'll go ahead and be the first to ask: what fenders are you running? and secondly, did they require modification to fit?

That looks super sharp, fail for non-drive side pic, but lets not blame the bike! That thing looks tiny is that a 50?

Well no big deal, really. I found a 1-inch threadless stem with a 26mm clamp area. I thought about a 1.125 stem and using a steerertube shim but I've had bad experiences with shims on motorcycles and pedalcycles.

The one I found is a Coda stem that is really short and maybe a little old. A quick sand and paint and it might match, lol.

I have gone through all the pages and not a single person put a motor on their kilo . . .so you can stop searching.


c=centimeter
cc=cubic centimeter (measuring displacement as in an engine)
