Thanks. It definitely is comfy. Ultra relaxed geometry and a long wheelbase. Floats down the road.

Zombie thread.  Time to revive it.

Here is my cheapo Schwinn Cutter.  I love it cuz my wife got it for me for Christmas a few years back.  It came as a SS.  After I started breaking spokes last year, I built my first wheel with a flip-flop hub and have ridden it FG ever since.

Do you think we're gonna make it? / I don't know unless we try / you could sit here scared to move / or we could take them by surprise

I really do miss having hoods to rest on. Might have to add those at some point.

You are supposed to flip the handlebars. It is cooler that way.

I started my singlespeed fun with this bike, which used to be an old Peugeot mixte frame geared bike. It was built up as a 42x17 SS using modern components. The LBS that built and sold the bike (Edible Pedal here in Sacramento) even made their own decals to mimic a real manufacturer's. They had the frame professionally powder coated yellow.



My riding partner has a 2009 Specialized Langster Las Vegas edition. I found one my size on Craigslist, so I snapped it up. It is faster than my geared road bike, and it's my ride of choice even on long rides of 60 miles or more. It climbs great, so I use it on rides as far up as Rocklin. Any further up in the foothills and I use my geared road bike. My Langster has a 42x16 gear. My riding partner is 48x15 fixed on one side, 48x17 fixed on the other. Here's both of our bikes. Mine is now clipess though (this is an older pic). Mine is on the left.



SS riding has made me quite a bit stronger. I even do hill repeats on my Langster.

Bump.

The Schwinn is now a single speed.

Food is an essential part of a balanced diet.

That's right, I'm resurrecting this thread again. Because I finally decided on bar tape for the new SS/FG.

2016 Specialized Langster Rio edition.
