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)

Whats the size of that rear cassete, are you using MTB derailleurs or the ultegra ones can handle that cassete?

It is an 11-42 XT cassette. A 1.85 mm spacer was used behind the cassette for fitment on road wheels.

The derailleur is an Ultegra RX-805 GS. The B screw was reversed so it clears the biggest sprocket but no other modifications were done and no Wolftooth was used.

Rings are Absolute Black 46-30 oval. Low gear is about 19.5 inches.

It uses an entire 116 link chain and shifts great.

At least two others in the gravel forum are using this setup.

a few from Barrio Logan GP last weekend:





I'm third from the right of the SDBC riders (red, white, black)



Not doing the best job of staying low right here... maybe I was tired!



finishing a pull early in the break, watching this guy get cheered on by his girlfriend. how sweet .




Should have grabbed third, maybe even second, but that would have required a different approach in those final corners and a lot more effort! Also go Trevor

Full race report here if you're interested.

Nice pic - just a question. How do you stop your bike?
I was test driving my ongoing build that doesn't have brakes yet and was kind of scary
