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)

Does it really count as slamming the stem if you are using a tall headset?

Ah, headsets can go a bit taller than that as I'm sure you're well aware if you check Slamthatstem.com with any consistency.

Anyways, I like to think of it as a "technical slam" - as in it's technically slammed. As my flexibility and core strength gains more steam coming into track season I'll toy around with going to lower stack headset cones and possibly just running without and using a washer with seal between the stem and top HS race.

i think someone should post a perfectly setup super white pista before we judge others. that way we can at least give the super white pista a fair chance.

Pretty sure that's a Delta Axlerod. You can put them on any hub in place of a traditional QR skewer.

the seat is a test to see if I like it, and I do. If my tape gets wrecked I'll get brown but it's good for now

I know. Angie's been wanting to build up a wheelset using them for a long time but we can't find them anywhere and the e-mail address on the CM website goes nowhere.
