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)

mongoose detain is wut i ride. its far from stock tho. bought her last year on clearence at the wally world here. its not a bad bike in stock trim. its even better as a fixed gear. the rear hub does have the flip flop hub. freewheel was actually installed on wut ya use for a fixed setup didnt realize it til after i rode fixed on was suppose to been the freewheel with a BB lockring then it finally broke. parts i have change over time have been: the crankset went from the stock steel to a alloy projekt fixie. avenir cog and lockring. orgin8 saddle( brooks style) and recently retrospec pista bars in a older nitto stem. tires are duro fixie pops red draggins. older mks ar-8 pedals with unknown brand toe clips with straps. i run 44X16 right now

Brought a thread back to life to post picture of bike with kickstand.

You never have to prove your bravery in any other way.

lol its the stock kickstand. it works. have rode without it but i cant always just lean her against sumthing like a wall,pole,tree,etc. and i rarelt to never lay her down. its disrespect to the bike to me. when u put in the wrench time like i have on her to keep her alive in this unforgiven society i have to exist in. its brutal honesty not an argument.

I think he was talking about left/right. Not fore/aft.

This thing almost falls over when I go around a corner.
