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)

Cassette had the plastic spacers and the little pins in the back to hold it all together, with the outside cog as the locking ring.

I've got all that stuff in case I decide to gear it, but it's a $30 bike, and I already have a SS, so with $ and time combined, I just wanted it done. (Yes, I'm changing that funky stem)

My first build. Kilo TT.

Not finished yet though..

Didn't turn out the way I want aesthetically, but I'm sure it rides nice.
Any suggestions?
