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)

I had my bars and stem clamp stolen so I ended up getting a new stem and bars, both of which were bigger (went from a 80mm stem to a 100 and 38mm wide bars to 40mm). 40s seemed way wider for me but I'm still splitting traffic just fine and I was able to adapt pretty quickly. The stem I think is slightly long for me but nevertheless since I took this photo I slammed the stem. I figure I'll just get used to it, even with my stem up a spacer my position is pretty aggressive even when I'm riding on the tops but I have pretty long arms and legs so reach isn't too much a problem. I do think I should get a slightly larger frame since my seatpost is stupid high at the moment, and yes, my saddle angle was pretty crazy, my bolt was stripped a bit and my friend had my allen keys, it's fixed now. Also set up a pedalroom in case anyone wants some more specs; "Bill" - Pedal Room

Green guru commuter, great bag, swallows tons and fully waterproof, only issue is the seams are tearing on me and I've only had this bag since September, but that might just be me, I'd recommend it, I think it's $80

The components are really nice, but, accessible to most. It's the triple tri frame with gussets from 3rensho that take make it amazing.

You do realize this is a member's personal bike, not just some photo off the net that someone posted.

Yeah I realize that. Just didn't know why it was so amazing. Guess it's just not my style.

I bit my tongue on that point as well. Valve caps don't match either. Shouldve just posted it in JA
