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)

Welcome to BikeForums! More specifically, SS/FG.

Enjoy your stay!

You most definitely started on the right foot by getting that wabi!

Got new handlebars and haven't wrapped them yet but just built these wheels and really really happy with how they turned out. I paid my lesson though and slowly have replaced almost every single part this bike shipped with. I still like the frame tho

Still some fine tuning to do, but just about there. 1988 Schwinn Paramount track frame. I've never seen another one.

Very good advice! I didn't realize my mistake until you mentioned it. Nearly as bad as when someone places the bike in the work stand backwards ha. I will do it correctly next time. Thank you.

Dang. The old and the new... so many beautiful rides. That Schwinn looks so well-cared-for. Seriously, what beautiful machines.

Riding it for sure. It has a few scratches and stuff so not perfect, but rides like nothing else.

Original! I know - must have been kept in indoor storage for the last 30 years.
