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)

It's reinforced everytime I look at the two inch gap above my tire. But thanks for rubbing it in. I really need that in my life.

Yeah, that must be awful. How do you live with such practical clearance?

Another Raleigh! I have an old Record that I love ( even if I don't ride her much)...

Mine's purple and pink, go figure. I like Colnago and Pinarello pastel bikes too, lol.

Thanks I originally had a yellow and orange thing going but my Ronald McDonald complex got the best of me

I did have it powder coated. That stem had a ton more drop then my last one and I really liked where my bars where positioned before so that is where it ended up.

i haven't really had a chance to get out and ride i that much, but as far as weight and components and stuff, its not bad. The toe clips that come on it suck, and i desperately need new ones and the cog was loose when i got it, but locktite fixed that. As far as ride quality it's pretty sweet, i've liked it so far, its quick and has a nice ratio

Rattle can with lotsa prep time. Also ground off mounts for shifty bits and added cables stops on frame for rear brake along with rear brake v mounts. Had caliper style stamped steel brakes to start with. YUK!!
Used to look like this after the first conversion.Bike pic

My junk yard Azuki 58cent frame and parts from the parts box. So far just using center gear of 5 speed free wheel and cut off large chainring. Shortened handlebar 2 1/2 inches each side and used Grip shift grips with front brake only. Rode it yesterday and it was fun, climbed very steep streets fairly easily and brake worked well. I can see the appeal for single speed bikes, I am 61 years old and this is fun.
