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)

You should have used this brake lever

I'm not really a fan of gold anodized stuff but to each his/her own.

Yeah I wanted to exercise some restraint and limit the gold to chain/stem/bars. I'm getting bullhorns and a thomson stem next week for a more sensible, commuting option.

1000's of KM's on this combo and barely a mark on the rails. More than fine. If you take some sand paper and break all of the sharp edges to smooth them out a bit it helps a lot when mounting carbon to metal parts. I do this on all of my stems as well when using carbon bars.
