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)

Had to brighten things up a little... I have old eyes.



I like those Mutant stems and the pink brake cable is a sweet touch.

King hubs too ?

I love the Mutant, but that's seriously the most ludicrously heavy stem ever. I'm far from a weight-weenie, but if I wanted a two-pound stem, I would've gone with a quill.

They make light quill stems too... I had a lovely vintage Nitto quill that I gave to my Free Spirit riding friend.

Thanks, but your welcome to do whatever you want. It's your bike that your putting together.

The Mutant is 280 grams in 12cm. That's heavy but not ridiculous.

Now you've done it... quoting me and re-posting one of those mediocre bikes again...

Those drops are just some old and really wide steel bars we pulled out of the bin full of old bars when the bike was getting put together...

With 84 gear inches the bike does not pull away like a rabbit (that's me) but damn, the bike does fly and I get the biggest kick out of the Free Spirit sticker that almost got removed. The frame is in beautiful shape and the Reynold's stickers are also nice and crisp.

i think bareknuckles look just like Iros but their forks (BKs) look better. I got to test out my friends and I like the quick steering of it (of course the HT angle plays a big factor in it)

I love the barenuckle's fork, but that's one bold spoke card.

My bike has turned into an art project of sorts.

the key words being of sorts. "Eat a d***," (Sharpie on Steel, 2005) ain't exactly Mona Lisa. I like the bike itself, though.
