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)

My latest SS conversion

I've already converted a '97 Trek 930 to SS duty and have now done the same to a '99 Kona Lava Dome, swiping parts off the Trek. My latest SS incarnation is a Miele road bike of unkown age. It was a gargae sale find my dad got for $5 CDN abouot 6-7 years ago. It has 27" wheels and all original parts. I'm gonna start it off as an SS and perhaps/most likely go fixed later. Maybe. It used to be my commuter bike back when I lived in Ottawa and lived in Orleans and commuted to Nepean for those who care. Don't know why I didn't convert it then. Silly me. Anyways, here's a couple of pics. It'll most likely get painted sometime this spring once the warm weather arrives here in the Poconos. Thanks for reading!
