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)

Why would there be any hate if you're being safe?

Pics of the ride this weekend when the brake gets to me and I can take it on a proper spin.

Not much hate expected, just wanted to cover myself since I wasn't sharing pics of the bike yet and only mentioning the purchase of a brake. Sort of a ****post.

Should be here tomorrow. I am hoping it is pretty tacky, as the humidity here in Florida is crazy.

I'm running that bar on my road bike and like it a lot. The stem happened to be available in the length I need for super cheap -- it was pretty fortuitous.

edit- Stem arrived in the mail today. Really handsome little piece of machining.

Scooped a White Industries headset for my Thrive cross bike. Getting closer...

Also scored this sweet new coffee table off of craigslist.

Wait wait wait when did the WI headset become available for public consumption...I need one now also I need a frame and a few other components.

I just got one of these because I imagine myself maybe going for some Sub 24 trips coming up and I also want it for commuting on my new TI road bike so I don't have to wear a dang backpack and sweat my back off:

I rode it tonight briefly and if I had the bike I wanted to ride ready I would have not been here but camping somewhere but sadly that was a no go and tomorrow doesn't work. I was surprised I didn't notice more sway but we shall see on longer term testing.

They're definitely not for sale yet. Last I heard was September.

I'd be very interested to hear about your experience - riding with the pack, packing it, camping, etc. - anything at all.

I'm currently researching bickpacking gear and slowly purchasing small items. At a certain point I will have to commit to a few major purchases like seat and bar packs and don't really want to experiment with a bunch of expensive gear so I do hope you write about your experience.

How did you acquire it? When I ordered my T11 Hub I asked and they weren't selling. Must has another 'merica headset.

Will do. On my ride last night it was fine and I didn't really notice it much and I tried to ride the bike I would most likely notice it on. It was hard to attach but that could have been the saddle I was strapping it to and the fact I have never done it before so I initially tried it loaded and then took out the dry bag and it was much easier.
