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)

Very very nice. That Capo looks fast. I wish I could push that big a gear.

85.8 gear inches is not too bad once you get going on the track...I really need to learn how to spin more efficiently with a smaller gear ratio.

Teevoe, definitely rides the track. The first time i saw Teevoe, Thyna (Hope you dont mind bro), race at the track was on Wednesday at Hellyer and he ended up taking first in a few of his races in his class. Thyna's a very strong rider and an all around stand up guy.

Silsteve- They're just some cheap risers I found at a local bike shop and cut down.

I definitely don't make that, though it would be nice. My priorities are just different.

ps those hed wheels deserve a better frame!
