It's about time someone made a thread like this... I was actually thinking about starting one of these a while back.
My dear beloved:
Yeah, I'm into the fixed gear trend, but don't peg me as one of those little kids in high school who bike around the city thinking that they are super hardcore and BA just because they have a cool fixie that their mom bought them. This is my commuter, and I also ride around with a bike club/group out in San Jose called San Jose Fixed. The group has 30-ish mile group rides every Tuesday, holds sponsored races every few weeks, and basically runs the iMiNUSD store, which I would say is one of the biggest, if not the biggest, urban cycling stores (next to City Grounds).
Here's me with some of them:
Enough of that. Component talk:
-Frame: Nashbar Hounder (bought the full bike at $200, sold basically everything but, and got nearly $150 back)
-Fork: Shimano Pro carbon straight fork
-Wheelset: Origin8 Track Attacks, laced to Origin8 hubs, 14T and 15T fixed cogs (one on each side)
-Tires: CST Comps
-Crankset/Chainring/BB: Vuelta Pista crank, Vuelta Pista 46T chainring, over an Andel BB
-Pedals: Crank Bros. Candy 1's (I have Chrome Kursk Pro's clipless to match)
-Seatpost: I used to run a Selle Italia carbon, but I switched to a Profile Design Razor
-Saddle: Origin8 Road Saddle
-Handlebars: I ran the Easton EA30 Aero drops in the photo, but I switched to Aero Bars. Syntace T2's on Origin8 Bullhorns now
-Stem: Used to have a Ritchey WCS 4-Axis, but switched to an Easton EA70 (to fit the bullhorns)
The frame used to be black, so the green wheels and pink seat/tape made it more obvious that I was going for a "watermelon" look. But, I took a bunch of stickers and stickerbombed the bike, so now you don't really realize it.
