What Else Did You Just Buy For Your Bike? Thread Thread Thread..... Thread

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)

The Zero 1 is anodized according their site -- just the black version though, white is painted. You should be ok since the logo is probably painted on. I'd try it on the "torque 6nm" first to see how easily it comes off, then proceed based upon the outcome.

Actually, does the whole thing look clear coated? or are the Logo's semi raised from the black or is it all smooth?

negatory, just the logos come off, theyre screened on
the black will look exactly the same

You are correct. Strangely enough, it's the tool that works for removal and installation of the Wabi deluxe freewheel.

Smart. It can be a real pain sometimes to remove 2 or 4 prong freewheels.

Nah, back in the day of multi-speed screw-on freewheels, many models used splined removers like that. It's actually a very good design that virtually eliminates any stripping of the freewheel body during removal.

Shimano multispeed freewheels use a splined tool as well. Very easy to use.

That is just a variant among many on the same concept. I have over a dozen freewheel removers, which is truly nuts.

They're lighter than the box they shipped in! They look and feel great so far. Never spun a set of wheels so true before.

Here are some iPhone images for Y'all.

Those look tempting. Pinned or welded seams?

I don't see these listed on his site, via email only?

Not sure about the seams, but they are very smooth. I think my set were the last pair he had. He said he should be getting some more in April. It's best to email or call.

So, I found some cleat mounting hardware for my sweet NOS vintage cycling shoes. I had to drive to two different Lowe's stores to find what I needed. The weather is miserable today, so I'm going to try them out on my rollers.
