2015 Post Your Singlespeed/Fixed Gear Megathread

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)

^^^All of those are ace. I really like the Guerictotti and the black one, whatever it is. Nice work.

My Steamroller is getting a makeover in the next few months. Will post when complete.

700c rear 650c front. Steering is a bit more twitchy/fast but it doesn't bother me at all. I don't really have a preference of how it rides now to how it did before to be honest.

Until pedal strike throws you off your bike while pedaling through a fast corner.
