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)

Mine isn't that tough on them and besides that, I just have rechargeable batteries for my headlight/tail light that I charge every few months. A great light for anyone, especially people riding in cities where there are lights/light sources all over.

Looks as if they've updated to a newer model, but you can still find the old ones being sold.

That nice Bianchi on the previous page needs bar tape or something on the top tube. Please do it. I don't want to see that pretty frame get dinged with bar swing.

On a scale of 1 (Knog Frog) to 10 (PB Superflash) how bright is it?

(Dinotte is 11, fyi).

Not as "hip" as the bikes in this thread, but it's a fixed gear.

That's what I'm interested in. There still doesn't seem to be anything brighter than a Superflash but cheaper than a Dinotte that doesn't involve DIY.

the cateye is visible enough for the street but definitely not near the superflash brightness. it doesn't have a crazy bright LED behind a lens, just several moderately bright ones.

Thanks. That's what I thought. I'll stick with the superflash. Got the regular one on one bike, and the stealth one on the other.

I'm waiting for a nice set of Campagnolo Record pedals/cages to come along. If you see any, let me know.

To all the people asking about my light, it's not a Cateye, and it doesn't suck up batteries. It's a NiteRider TailFazer

Clips look right to me.... The tab is there to help you roll your foot into the clips.

His pedals are on the wrong side and then place the toe clips on the narrower side.

EDIT: or I guess the pedals are on the correct sides, but I don't like that little dip on the narrower side

Got the new Rolls saddle from PBK, and some B123s with (coincidentally) pink grips in a trade on this forum.


They feel crazy different from my bullhorns, so acceleration is harder.
