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)

Anyone got a brushed aluminum looking bike with just a clear coat? Not like chrome or anything, just a brushed look. I'm thinking the best way to keep myself from having to constantly repaint my bike flat "anodized bronze" is to just get rid of the paint. That or p-coat, but $15 in chemicals > $100+ in p-coating on my beater.

What fixed gear? Did you even read my post, or did you just look at the picture, make an assumption and talk out of your ass?

How is me having a rear brake only on my single speed any different than a bmx or beach cruiser with only one brake? Do you know how I ride it? Do you know what 'm comfortable with as far as braking capacity goes?

My only experience with knobbies + fenders was all bad. Doesn't it just become bogged down almost instantly when you get into "the ****"?

A few from this mornings first ride on the new jig. A few things need to be perfected, but it's near completion.
