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)

Fixie number six is complete!!!

It rides in absolute silence.
The chainline is exact.
It is running a 52x19t (75") gear.

Cost for the completed bike:
$ 20.00 Miyata OneTen road bike (yard sale)
$ 40.00 Basic Wheelbuild-rear
$ .00 Dura Ace lockring (saved $5.95)
$ 11.20 DT (gold) alloy nipples (32)
$ 24.00 DT Competition 2.0/1.8 spokes (32)
$ 22.95 HG-90 chain (silver)
$ 10.00 Labor
$ 6.95 Tufu glue tape
$ 3.25 W/M chaing ring spacers (5)

$ 13.00 Bontrager mtb saddle (half-price sale)
$ 11.00 bar tape
$ 89.00 Dura Ace track hub (eBay)

The gold anodized Mavic OR10 rim for the build came free with a wheelset bought on eBay last year which provides the front wheel on the bike.

Pictures to come soon.
