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)

First time with bull horns, just messing around with the angle and I plan on installing my bar end brake a friend gave me after I get back from Germany.

Is it actually rare? I bought it on a whim and figured that is was too big so I rode it for a few months until I got that little stem (fits MUCH better). When I measured it I was surprised to find that it was only 58cm (unless I measured wrong). I've been looking for a new bike but couldn't find anything comparable.

Yes. Much much much much, note 4 "much"'s than a chrome pista.

I don't understand the context of this statement, but it's still pretty dumb.

Some people like having a lightweight alu frame but still like a comfortable saddle that isn't meant for racing, what's so funny about that? For instance the Wabi Lightning is a modern alu frame meant for SS/FG riding but built with road geometry. Most likely, that bike is meant for road riding, not racing obviously it would have gears otherwise. So why would it be ridiculous for someone to want to put a Brooks on a bike like that? Especially considering Brooks are so highly esteemed in the cycling world and particularly road riding.

i think he was trying to say that brooks saddles on spaceship looking oversized frames look funny, which i agree it does, but once someone is riding the bike you cant really tell what saddle is on it anyway

plus they're like 150 grams more than a lot of the regal type saddles. I don't understand his point either. Is it aesthetics?

p.s. I got tree fort to price match a b17 for me a few weeks ago and it's still up there for $73. Of course the one I wanted went to back order after I ordered and "wouldn't be shipped for several months" so it did me no good, but anyone who wants a non black one can grab one cheaply there.

edit: saw kellen's post: maybe that's it. I would think a big ass saddle would look odd on a very thing frame than a large one. seems like a stupid post regardless and I don't even know what post he's referencing

How much for the lolergy? Is it the kind that asplodes? I'm in Bellingham and frequently travel to Seattle so I could save you shipping it.

Those wheels look great on that bike. What does your tet look like now?

Thanks! The TET looks the same as the most recent set of pics in my PedalRoom, just without wheels... the IRO wheelset will probably get built sometime in September. I'm not sure of what lacing I want to do yet.
