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?

my favorite flats are the ones that I never even got to ride on because I did something stupid while changing it and damaged the tube. I haven't done that in a while.

Getting a cream kilo pro soon. Thought I'd share. Just got to sell this computer.

Yeah I was surprised how much I like the blue Star but it is a nice dark blue with just a hint of flake

If you are referring to my bike, its just the lens that I used... there isn't a decent way to get a picture where the 44mm profile design bullhorns look like normal bars... they aren't that big.

Negative points for dented top tube, tons of positive points for the super practical beater/townie build.

Thanks guys, I've had the bike for about 2-3 years now. The second week I built it, I had it leaned up against a sign to lock to, looked away for a second and a gust of wind took it down onto a fire hydrant. I like to think it adds a nice little bit of character. Ha

Fender is from Planet Bike, forget which model - the website doesn't appear to stock them anymore.

I needa get my wheels trued, they kinda roll off-center and tend to hit my front brakes.. Is there any remedy for this until I get my wheels fixed?

Also, I just put in a new tube in my rear tire and topped it to 110psi, but after my first ride, it lost some.. Is that normal? Or do you think its someone about the wheel that's giving me a slow leak.. My old tube had a very small little cut, but I found nothing in the tire and the tape was covering the spoke ends fine..

is that tiger print from you locking your bike? I always lock through my frame and my front wheel and I've never chipped any paint.
