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)

What's on your SSFG wishlist for 2016 ?

The new year is only a few weeks away, and I really don't have anything on my wishlist for SSFG. No new bikes, no new wheels, no upgrades or tweaks or mods. Nothing, nada, rien, nicht. I suppose having 14 SSFG bikes may have something to do with it, or maybe it's the lack of anything really new in the marketplace. Should I get something completely different like a hoverboard ?

Find someplace to put the bike I just built so I can take it out of storage. Killing me just to think about it.

If I'm being totally unrealistic, a Bare Knuckle in khaki green. More realistically, I'm in the market for spd-compatible chrome shoes and a pair of issi clipless pedals.

Realistically, I need nothing. Do I want a few things? Sure. I'd love a Cinelli Mash Work frameset, or a clean used Histogram frameset to build.

One more wheelset, another bullhorn bar and some white track grips. Some track cogs, 16 and 17T, Conti ultra sport tires and a nice fluted 27.0 seat post.

Not much.

@TenSpeedV2, that's more or less exactly what I'm after at some point. I realize that's a Parallax, but it's basically the same frameset as the Histogram.

My wishlist is as follows:
Wheelset; Paul hubs or maybe All City New Sheriff SLs to save coin, Sapim spokes, Velocity or HED rims
Frame; possibly Mash Work cause it is steel and canti-able but might consider something else
Sugino Gigas Cog (or EAI Gold Medal)
Sugino Messenger chainring (or new 144bcd S75 crankset with Zen chainring)
TRP Inplace Brake pads in red (need new pads figure might as well get nice ones and have some colored shoes)

I have other interests but those are the main things I really have the use for currently.

I feel very fortunate. My Langster is just the way I want it and my new SS MTB might be just the way I want it (I will know more Saturday, after a ride with the new cranks). Life is great!

But, I am sure there will be something to buy in the new year.

I loved 650b and disc brakes on my road bike so much I'm planning a 650b front disc fixed gear for the spring.

Thinking of going fixed with two brakes (!) in the near future. Frame's got internal cable routing and i'd hate to see it go unused, also gotta put that right lever to use. So my wish list is a set of TRP RRL levers and 6800 brakes, though I'm open to suggestions that don't involve 'brakes r deth'.

I can't imagine having a frame with internal cable routing and not using it.

uhhh first priority is a frameset to replace the Fuji that got stolen from me. Pretty much only looking at Aventon or Cinelli. Really need to get on it and order one from Scrod, but the money probably won't be there for it until 2016. Probably a new wheelset as well, but that's gotta come after some upgrades to my Allez.

Not quite SSFG but I'd like to get a MTB this year, might just do a rigid 1x10 or maybe magic gear it. Going to be living out near Mt Hood come March so lots of shredding could be had. Depending on tax return situation it might happen.
