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 last road bike was a Fuji Roubaix Pro which I ran as a 1x9. I liked it a lot but chaindrops aren't fun! I only had maybe 5 chaindrops the whole summer I had the bike but that was enough to convince me to do a double on my next build. It sucks that it's just so difficult to maintain a 1x9.

(I actually traded the Fuji for the GT at Shaker Cycle, it was slightly too big for me and I fell in love with the frameset when I saw it hanging up in the shop.)

+1 Love the bike. Just FYI, Risers and a top tube pad do not a fixed gear make.......

my friends said I would not be able to leave the all black Ebay special alone (I'm stickery), they were right:



on a serious note, so far this $250 beater has been a great bike. Only upgrade I did was replace the brakes with take-off Campy Mirage ($20).
