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)

Installed a Cane Creek S-3 headset and riser bars. Probably going to strip/polish/clear the brake lever soon.

If only they read the opinions of some internet dweebs - then their bikes would finally be acceptable.
I wasn't aware that only you pros had an opinion that mattered. The race bikes you've shown it's about function over form. The sanchez is all about the look. Will that bike ever get to the velodrome? Reminds me of using a riser bar with a negitive rise stem instead of a positive rise stem with a flat bar. Form over function.

So if he flipped his stem so that his drops were lower down than he would like so that his bike fit into your aesthetic standards, the bike would no longer be about form over function because then it would look how you want it to?

Interesting...

Shoot, I just realized all of my 10 bicycles serve similar purposes. I better buy a couple more, and make sure THOSE aren't fun to ride and make me smile. Oh wait, I could simply change out some parts, so I can be a non-conformist just like everyone else.

not flaming the guy calm down! just wondering what he uses each for. It's not like I haven't gone through 10 million bikes a lot of them for the same purposes. But two steel bikes with formula hubs, risers, clips, etc seems super similar to me.

one gear




fun! it doesn't have that Regal on it anymore, though. Now it has an SLR gel flow; fits me a bit better. I'll try to get some higher quality shots with the new saddle soon.
