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)

Ha! I was waiting for someone (most likely Squirrelli) to catch it. A kid that sometimes works for us at Retrogression submitted it a few weeks ago and when he told me I was like "What??? I banned that dude!"

Bar angle's a little wonky, but it's lookin' good! It woulda been sweet if you could have gotten black 75s instead of silver.

What fork?

I'm debating whether or not it'll stay murder. I'm going to put a Black Turbo on it and then a Supertype seat post. Black or Silver, I'm guessing the best price will decide.

Bar Angle is comfoy and I like silver on black.

Fork's a 05' Lorenzo I think.

I would say All City New Sheriff because I'm digging the looks of it. Other than that, I'd say maybe a Cyclone or a Phil.

I'm so indecisive. I've got a Chub hub sitting on a shelf just waiting to be laced up but I'm unsure about it. I was considering a Cyclone but want to use a 32h rim so that's out. laksdjbgflqjfb;kjvbs;kjqdbsvjw

Chub hubs are not my cup of tea. Sorry, bro.

Maybe a Gran Compe?

Just got back from a 50 or so mile ride on the Leader, the drop, aluminum and lack of gloves killed me. My shoulders ache, my hands are terribly sore and my legs feel murdered.

In other words a good time. Tried to mess with the Wolf Pack tonight, and I got dropped like I just took the training wheels off my first huffy. So me and a couple of friends did the Marathon route off the route slips they gave us. Ended up being a great deal of fun. I was pushing so hard as I came to the end my calf nearly cramped up.

Now I'm home, covered in sweat, not that "been pushing hard feels good" sweat, more of the "jesus christ I got home at 2:30 in the morning and everything hurts and i'm pouring sweat from exhuastion" sweat.

Naw, I think im going the black on silver route.

Next on my list of upgrades in terms of gettin' it done.

Silver Stem with more angle, a bit too much drop for the distances I ride.
Black Cork tape or Fizik Gel tape.
Selle Turbo Black
Miche Silver Supertype seatpost.
Lighter Wheel set. I'm not sure if I want to just keep the paul hubs and sell the Deep V's and laced something else to them (kinlins, Foers, H Plus, Open Pros are awesome because when everything is thick tubed like that, cross winds knock me over when I ride with no hands)

Nah. I got a really good deal on it and will either eventually do something with it or sell it for quite a bit more than I paid.
