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)

Heads up on IRO forks

I had to make a spacer from a soda can for the bearing race, but the fork looks new, no cips on mine. Also has to get some spacers for the headset.

Wtf? You might want to actually get the proper crown race size (i'm assuming it's going to be 27.0 for the correct size since you needed to shim).

i was about to order those hubs until I realized it was 20 bucks each. I don't have 40 bucks to spare on something i currently have no use for.
