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)

My first fixed gear. Cheap MTB steel frame, 650B Wheels (the commonest tire size here in Brazil) and 61 gear inches (46/20). Still with rear brake.

my singlespeed. built from one of my friend's used MTB frame he gave me. vertical rear dropouts, but with appropriate gear ratio (32/14T) and worn-out chain, the chain tension fits just right. front and rear discbrakes, with DIY front fork (used chromoly fork with home-made discbrake caliper mount). the cassette spacer is made from PVC pipe, so far so good. and the bashguard... it's made from a forklift castor wheel. homemade paintjob, using aerosol spraypaint.


singlespeeding runs in the family... this one is my wife's. actually, she's the one who introduced singlespeeding to me. Indonesian made city bike frame. using front and rear BMX hubs, with lots of washers in the rear axle just to fill in the gap between the locknut and the dropout. also homemade paintjob.

everything's done in my garage, except for the bashguard and the rigid fork.

argh, onetwennyeight pulls out the big guns. i'm shocked at how much damage that wheel suffered there.

for at least 10+ years, i rode bmx bikes only, until my pride and joy got stolen. so this is my first single speed. guys at pedal rev where pretty helpful with the purchase. have a few changes i'm gonna make but so far i made the swap with no problems what so ever and loving it.
