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 next bike is in the works.........

The bike is heading to Spectrum for paint. I received this pic from my builder today.

Those Sub 11.0 track ends are really nice for brazing because of how much surface area it has.

Thanks. It occupies my mind for at least an hour a day. When I get to work I'll post a picture of the CAD design, but in the interm here are the primary dimensions: top tube is 57.5, seat tube is 53, head tube 170mm and seat tube angle is 73. I think the geometry is going to give me a great all-around bike. Have a great day.
