Any Single Speeders on here? Converting My Raleigh Super Record to a SS, so i'll be adding 700c wheels. Any suggestions for brakes that'll reach?


Sometimes I flip my rear wheel around and ride the freewheel. Except I still don't have brakes. So...

Anyone else go on group rides with friends?
Every Saturday night we usually get a pretty good sized group riding together.
Last night there was only 5 of us.



Only 3 of us were on fixed gears, other two had to borrow road bikes. But it's fun to just cruise around town late at night.

If you were talking to me, pretty sure it's an Eight Inch. My friend got a blank from them and painted it up for me.. But I'm building up a new bike with a 80's road frame soon, don't like the look of these modern frames eh

dude, don't get a conversion.

Still on the lookout for an 80/90s track frame but it's pretty hard where I live. Conversions look sick when they're simple and sleek!

Someone from the bay sell me their fixie

fixies have always been for fags/honkeys in capris so don't feel too bad.

this was my last fixed gear before i just decided to ride bmx full time. the frame is an fbm sword. i might ride fixed again, just maybe a proper freestyle fixed. i also had before this a white bare knuckle and a khs flite 100

is there a company that's kind of known for making the best seats? I have a road bike I ride around on that's about 25 years old and still has the original seat on it. It's not that comfortable, and it's pretty worn, so I'm looking to get something new.

i'm the best mayne, i deed it

You can try brooks saddles.
They're pricey but i've heard theyre worth the buck.

Either that or some Selle italia saddles
May 10, 2012 @ 07:53
Brooks look goofy imo. I'd look into Fizik, those are some quality saddles.

Hahah yeah, exactly why I don't have one.
That's the brand I was forgetting...

There isn't really a "best" (or worst) company. Any saddle is fine as long as its comfortable to you. and comfortable saddles vary from person to person. Some notable brands are: Selle Italia, San Marco, fizik ,specialized, & prologo. Brooks saddles takes more time to break in than most saddles. Some specialized dealers can measure your sit bone for their saddles.
May 11, 2012 @ 01:35
Nobody's ass is the same. tbh the best thing would to go to a lbs and try it yourself, you don't want to order a saddle online for $100 just to have it be an ass hatchet for you. With that said, ebay has great deals on used saddles.

I just wanted some brands to look for, because the bike shops in town have such huge selections I wouldn't know where to start.

A lot of people find fizik ariones and selle italia flites very comfortable. But there won't be a guarantee that these will work for you. I know fizik and selle italia have test saddles that you can try out. I believe its free or just a small fee to test them out as long as you don't break or scratch then and return them on time. And if you end up liking them, the small fee will go towards the saddle when you buy it. I would start there.

If you don't want to spend a lot of money, I would do what Dawick suggested and look on craigslist and ebay for cheap saddles. An expensive saddle doesn't necessarily mean it will be more comfortable to you. A $10 saddle can be more comfortable to you than a $300 one.

Just be sure do a long ride to test them out. When I was testing out saddles, I would do 40-50 mile rides.

After looking at the last couple bikes posted...y'all need to get frames that actually fit you. There is no reason your seat post should be lowered all the way down.

My other bike. Well...both, actually.
