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)

Just changed out my tires which were pretty beat and I switched from 700x25 to some 700x23.

I kinda wish my LBS had these in a different color, but I don't think they look too bad.

well, the celeste and the techno lights totally clash with the otherwise beautifully classic bike, but hey- can't ride without tires and lights.

unless you're these guys http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yfRekj46Vq8

I kinda feel the same... The celeste is a bit bright, but it was the only color they had. I wish there were some beige colored tires, but alas beggars can't be choosers.

As for the lights... I gotta ride with them despite the ugliness

Tigerpawn,

What kind of bag (tied under your seat) are you using? I know someone put a link to their website once, but I can't for the life of me find it anywhere. Thanks.

Are those cyclones road doubles? pretty clean bike overall, not a big fan of the black tape it's not like it's a big surprise what it says underneath it.

The old rule for fit was that one would have a fistful of seatpost and that is a freaking tall frame... how tall are you anyways ?

I love the shots btw.
