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)

Vredestein Fortezza Tricomp Clinchers. The tubing is Reynolds 853. I got this frame back in 2004, it was custom made for its owner who raced in Texas.

Not quite perfect, but I couldn't resist posting it

1978 Sabatini
-Front wheel is a 28h Campy laced to a Super Champion tubular. Supposedly the wheels were built by Sante Pogliaghi. I've got a matching rear, but no nuts. Nuts! Vittoria Rally tire, the cheapest kevlar tubular I could find.
-Rear is a Maillard hub laced to an Arc en Ciel. Tufo S22 tire
-Drivetrain: Campy 151BCD 165mm Pista cranks, 48t Sugino chainring, 17t EAI cog, Wipperman chain
-Campy record seatpost, Cinelli Unicanitor saddle
-Cinelli #2 track stem, Model 19 steel bars,
-Campy super pista headset, which shoulda been called the Super P.I.T.A., as the merest hint of road grit gets sucked into the cups
-Campy pista pedals, and what used to be a pair of Cinelli laminated straps. One of the rollers popped off while strapping in on my 3rd ride. Do not buy these straps.

That's all the gory detail. I kinda wish people still posted their builds. I effin love this bike.

P.S. If anyone has Campy rear nuts or EAI nuts that will fit, pm me! tanks

I wouldn't leave 'em like that for a day. But then, some people wouldn't leave half their collection in a tin garage during hot Australian summers.

Keep the Kenny Dope boxset, I would. But you can send me the jazz.

Oh, and I really like the bike too!! Nice work!!
