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)

Syncmaster---what bars are those? Syntace stratos? They look cool. Also, I am not sure if you need to push your wheel forward or not. It depends. As long as the bolt is completely covered in the track ends, you're okay. If any part of the bolt isn't covered, you should tighten your chain though. I thought mine was too far back but I took it to the shop and 2 diff. mechanics agreeed that it was okay.

And regarding the wheel being pushed forward, It took me a second to figure it out, but then I realized that in these pictures I have the 15t cog on the rear wheel that came free (and installed) with the wheelset. Normally I'm running a 17t cog so this resulted in the wheel being pushed farther back in the track ends. I'm going to put the 17t back on so it won't be an issue anymore. Although the bolt does seem to be completely covering the track ends.

That pink is pretty nice. Should have had the gold ano parts stripped and polished though. :/ Would look banging with silver components.
And the mustache bars are a nice touch.

I dig the gold. It'd different. Also notice the gold nipples on the wheels; so hot!

A month ago I crashed on this bike. The front wheel got messed up and so did I, wasn't wearing a helmet. Severe concussion and I fractured my skull, may never hear out of my left ear again. Found a new wheel on eBay for a great price, only thing is, is that it is red and black. Now I kinda want to find a matching rear wheel.



Oh, and I got bored so I broke out the stickers.
