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)

Perhaps this view will be better:

Oh, that's cool! Maybe I should get one of those. I've never had a bike-specific GPS. I have a Polar fitness watch with GPS that I wear for both biking and running. It might be more comfortable and convenient to put it on my handlebar. Where did you get them, TT?

I got them from a seller on Amazon that is now out of stock, but there are many others such as:

https://www.amazon.com/Bicycle-Ehone...unt+ehonestbuy

I use them to mount large Timex Ironman Triathlon hrm watches, but you can mount just about anything with a wrist band. What I like about them is that they are secured to the handle bar with zip ties, so that the watch band doesn’t have to be very tight.

That is neat, I can mount my non-existent watch on there. Maybe I might get one of those Casio Calculator Watches so I can do the maths while hitting my normal KOMs (King of the Mashed potatoes)

Polar makes a mount for about $10. I used this with a polar GPS/HRM watch for close to a decade. Like the one TT posted, it secures with zip ties.

Edit: Just looked at this again and TT's is nicer.

I received the watch handlebar mounts today, and this is what they look like on my bikes.

Getting the zip ties installed on the mount piece is a real pita, and I think I could do brain surgery now.

For those still interested, they are back in stock from the seller on Amazon >>> https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It is a shame the Phil Woods didn't make their new headset in 1" threaded because I would have boughted one like so fast for my Phils Wood frame I got. This little number should do the trick though. I wish I had bought this a while ago but so many projects so little money!

Nice classic looking bike, very nice 😁

Lé Huffy, I believe, they are a more obscure French brand. Apparently the bearing balls are encased in some sort of tomb so the alieum death rays don't get inside.

Getting ready to build a new wheel for my road bike and keeping it old school like. I'm relacing the one on the left with a VO PBP rim and thinking about what to pair the one on the right with. Maybe something more modern.

I bought a new pair of this...



Because I did this...



Rode 14 miles like that and didn't even notice. In my defense it was a raging thunderstorm at midnight so I had other things on my mind.
