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)

Cool bike. When I use chain to secure my saddles I like to run the through a length of inner tube to prevent rattling. It can be kind of a pain to join the chain with the tube getting in the way but worth it IMO.

Thanks

That's a really good idea. I have some heatshrink I was gonna try but I dont mind the rattling or the rubbing off the paint much so i havent done it yet

Update: Ok so you inspired me to try out my heatahrink idea finally. I like it because its a bit cleaner but if it doesnt work, tubes it is.

Good look brotha, I forgot the All City was just rebranded Andel's. Or at least they were before, I just grabbed a All City 47T for 50 bucks.
