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)

I agree with you there. That is just the stem that came on it. I got the bike with everything but a seat and seatpost. The wheelset is off my old langster. It is a Formula hub, Mavic Reflex rim, and Continental Giro tubular combo. I still need to clean up the wheelset that came with the bike. It is another tubular wheelset so ill probably get another set of the Giro tires. Cheap and easy to install.

Haha, thanks. But yeah, it's just a terrible camera, I think the batteries were dying too, so that didn't help. I'm getting a new camera for christmas though, so maybe then I'll get some better pictures up.

An interval is the relation (in distance) between two notes. Notes played simultaneously are, indeed, a chord. Or a harmony. Notes played in a sequence are a melody.

Your camera may not be very good, but he was right. Being outside would have helped more than almost any camera would out of the box.

It's not so much that the light is "natural" but outside (even if it's cloudy) there is way MORE light than inside will all the lights on. That causes your camera to leave the shutter open longer to get the same amount for your picture. That can make your picture blurry since the camera has a longer chance to move while the picture is being taken.

Your camera ALSO might compensate by turning up something called the ISO. This will make the picture grainy.

If you want to know what cameras will be better at dealing with low-light go to a camera-specific store and they should give you good advice. (they might also be on commission though so be aware of any possible car-salesmen types)

Off topic but I'm done

wait, more light means either the shutter is open for a shorter duration of time (decreasing blurriness from shaking hands) or allows the camera to use a less sensitive setting resulting in less noise (lower iso)

i think you just misspoke lol. but yeah, outside ftw.

great bike, great beach

Love the shot of the beach at Morro Rock. Spent a lot of time in the water there during my college days, including winter swells with the waves breaking over that white rock...

Well, I'm going to try to get some outdoors photos of it with a better camera. I just put on a new rear cog from Milkwaukee Bicycle Co. and it's probably the nicest part of my bike, even if you can't see it.

Anyone else use there cogs before? They seem nice.

I've been lurking around here for a while but have never posted pics. Here's a couple pics of my Pista. Currently using bullhorns. Platform/clipless (I only use the clipless side) Shimanos are being replaced with some sort of mtb pedal soon. Still not exactly sure what I want yet. I'll get some better pics soon.
