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)

Sometimes it's nice to build one up for someone else especially when she's a sweetheart and has been longing for a fixte gear...

My friend and I fished this mint Kuwahara from the LBS dumpster yesterday and built it up last night as it's for his girlfriend and it's her birthday next Sunday.

I also have a nice Shimano 600 crank for the bike and a nice leather saddle to add to the birthday present.

Yeah... I can really see the girl doing that.



I'm still amazed that folks who are supposed to know about bikes would toss such a nice bike out... the bike was / is absolutely mint.

Thanks buddy. It is a 42t Zen messenger!
But you're right, I'm waiting for a 47t Zen chainring to arrive, but if I did I'll never get around to posting a pic of the bike. It took long enough.

Where can I order that 42? It match with my black crank set and beside I want to downsize from 48 to make it easier.

ben's has them here, but if youre just looking to lower your gear inches, it would be a lot cheaper to get a bigger cog instead.
