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 have two of them, both have only been on the street for fun rides and commutes to work. No track time planned.

2009 Jamis Sonik



Stem, bars, pedals, tires and the cage/mount are the only things not stock.

2013 Felt TK3



Stem, bars, pedals, tires, front wheel and the cage/mount are the only things not stock.



Pardon my crappy apartment pictures. It's currently 24 out and snowing.

Thank you! I love this bike as well. I am glad that I opted for this color/year as a flat black/newer year was available at the same time, with the only difference being the color. Saved $100 by going with this color.

Carbon steerer? Might be a bit too much spacer going on there.

Thanks. I was inspired by Team Cinelli-Chrome.

I've ownwd well over a dozen, perhaps a dozen and a half track/fixed/conversion bikes in the past few years (as I've gotten into cycling out of college). My collections have been built up and sold of. Finally I have settled on these two which I am keeping and hopefully adding more bikes to, rather than getting rid of to pay for new ones. Bianchi road conversion, switched drops for pursuit/tt setup. I still like bombing hills on it but the long distance of 30+ miles a day (when nice out) is far more comfortable, and State track cruiser, disassembled, for the guest/friend rider or for days that I want the flat bar feel and slightly smaller geometry.

My Raleigh Equipe Track bike. Just had her first ride in the rain, poor thing. She's had a good clean up and lovin'. I like to think of my bikes as people. That way, they get treated as such.
