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)

For those wondering, 3rensho & Makino never sourced forks from tange unlike cannondale and specialized. Their forks were always made in house from scratch.

Hopefully there's still some red paint on the outer facing sides of the cups to let the people know!

Irony would have it that WTB is the #1 OEM maker of stock saddles and a bike out there most likely comes with essentially the one you bought.

Their saddles get the job done nevertheless.

Yeah, I knew that was coming.

It's down to 19.1 lbs. Rides pretty nice. I think I can get it into the 17's.

Do KiloTT's come with water bottle cages?
