yep. Rad.

There is an old (60+) bloke over here I see smashing around on the matching road frame with C-rec/shamals. Never has a helmet on!

Its nasty and my rushed paint has more runs than The Don but the frame is native 700c so easier to work with than my original ghetto fixie.

Its not quite as much fun as making suicide hubs out of 27" wheels but tyres were too hard to come by.

Here are some updated ones of my Larry:

Switched to Tektro brake levers, running single speed while my knee heals
Image

Picked up a cheap pair of Rival cranks too, and fitted some SKS guards:
Image

Overall im really happy with it. Only niggling thing atm is the cheap crap Shimano freewheel which is dying badly. Will have to replace it, but i can't complain as it came with the wheels for $40 and the wheels are really quite nice.

Fiddles with ratios since this photo and found a magic gear so the horrible tensioner is gone.

I think you will find the Forum FAQ might be helpful :)

Can I post images?
Yes, images can be shown in your posts. If the administrator has allowed attachments, you may be able to upload the image to the board. Otherwise, you must link to an image stored on a publicly accessible web server, e.g. http://www.example.com/my-picture.gif . You cannot link to pictures stored on your own PC (unless it is a publicly accessible server) nor images stored behind authentication mechanisms, e.g. hotmail or yahoo mailboxes, password protected sites, etc. To display the image use the BBCode [img] tag.

My suggestion is to use a image hosting service to upload them and use the URL tags to enclose the image links swapping the { with a [ in this example : {img}http://blahmadeupimagehostingcompany/pic1.jpg{/img}

I think your ninja is actually lighter - 9.6kg???
Mein Gott. May I ask why? I mean, I sort of get the whole carefree/simplicity/at-one-with-the-machine thing, but where's the fun in lugging around close to 10kg with only one gear?

Quads of steel.

Are those things cast alloy? I thought they were plastic. Worse than I had thought.

Think they are somewhere in the realm of 1.3kg each if they are the same as the ones on Cycling deal.

Try it and see. If nothing else, they WILL make a better spinner of you. :)

No thanks. My single wheels are 1.5kgs for the set. Thats plenty.

I get they kind of look cool. And they would be stiff. And strong. Beyond that? better hope you arent doing big kms or hills. It just wouldnt be fun to ride, surely?
