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)

ha, well.. i love the process of getting all the right bits for a build. however, the process of waiting is hell, so any time a project is done, i feel relieved.

as for the parts, they are from all over the world. there are not that much vintage branded track bike parts in NZ.

Posing a "Beater" in that hard core beaten down industrial environment makes a cool photo.
