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'm not getting the reference to April 1st. But if its anything like the TP at SDSU then no thanks. That stuff is so thin you are sure to get a finger of poo.

By the way, I don't know if they think they are saving money by using the thin stuff but they are not. At school, I use like 4 times more than normal to ensure my finger safety.

I picked up this beautiful heavy duty Suntour GT derailleur. I have a small collection of Suntour RDs but I love the GT models.

Some of that old Suntour stuff is great. I remember back in my BMX days Suntour 16T freewheels were highly sought after (especially the chrome ones, I remember them selling for as much as $40). They were definitely nicer than the Shimano freewheels.

Speaking of rear derailleurs I just got this bad boy:

and also picked up a SRAM PC-991 chain. I just need to get shifters, brakes and get my wheel situation figured out and then when the frame gets here, build party, woooooo!

I love Suntour stuff. One of my life goals is to have a pro-grade 80s Japanese road bike with complete Suntour Superbe Pro group (Low Flange) or an 80s Japanese track bike with Suntour Superbe (High Flange).

Metal silver coloured bottle cage
Shimano XT disc hub + accessories for bolt-on cog mounted conversion
Diagonal ReStrap's
Halo Retro rim + spokes
15mm Stubby spanner
Chain, cog, etc.
