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)

What's on your Xmas bike wish list?

I've been thinking about getting this crankset and using my Sugino Mighty Competition 144bcd ring. The Miche Primato crankset is now 144bcd. It's so cheap at totalcycling with the tanking GBP.


So what's on everyone's bike wish list?

- A new wheelset, either Mavic Open Pro or Velocity Fusion rims
- Time ATAC pedals and corresponding shoes
- Cycling tights

Though I will probably only get tights.

haha, it looks exactly like his, people always ask me that when i ride around. The wheels were actually brian's and i really liked the omniums after riding his haha. My frame is an alien so that's the big difference and white was the only color i could get.

Lights

Micro adjust seatpost

44t chainring (origin8 probably, can be had for $18.00)

I just bought this frame, so I guess that was my early present to myself.

Anyone have experience with this $15 chaser tech seatpost by the vendor from the same name on eBay? It looks cool and industrial and comes in the weird 27.0 size I need for my new bike. I wonder how the microadjust is, as that's my motivation for a new one.
