depends what you want? if you're looking better than deep v's you're probably going to be building the wheelset. I have a set of profile hubs that I absolutely love (now on my brothers eighthinch) laced to deep v's but if you are looking for something even nicer but still rideable on the street I'd point you in the direction of Mavic's. Either open pro's or MA40's but H+Sons are nice as well. As for hubs I'd go with Phil Woods, Dura Ace, Profile or GranCompe

I'm working on getting a new headset/handlebars. I love my fixed gear.

Such a great experience riding with no brakes and all.

hey folks, I have a question about the best pedals/cages/straps for my recent build. I've been riding on platforms but need to switch to something with more resistance for braking. any suggestions?
May 06, 2011 @ 17:53
I moved up my seat about an inch and a half. Wow, much better experience and I think i have way more control of the bike. Track stands are 10 times easier and before when I wore jeans they almost wanted to ride up haha.

all I do is sip espressos and listen to AZ -mrelllis.tumblr.com

I have Origin8 metal clips and their double straps. Works perfectly fine for me.

I've been into fixed gear bikes for a while now and actually started riding one about a year ago. From what I have heard along with my own experience, the hype comes from their simplicity, their ability to be customized and accessorized, the attainable speed, and maneuverability(They ride completely different than multiple-geared bikes.), but most people start riding because of others.

They feel completely different, its all about momentum.

fixed gear gets so much better as you get better at it. feels so free skidding for like 30feet while sideways etc. turning corners skidding is amazing also and just feels awesome.

This is probably the stupidest shit ive ever read.
Cause no other bike can be customized or accessorized right? I didnt know i coulnt upgrade my wheelsets, seat, fork, gruppe, handlebars on my Fuji SL1 Pro....
Attainable speed? ♥♥♥♥♥ you top out after a certain RPM fuck outta here....And can you please elaborate on how they ride differently than a true road bike? i cant wait to here this one

Fixie faggot fixie faggot fixie faggot.

Dont get me wrong, I dont have a problem with riders that actually RIDE...its the ones like most of you that do it to be "hip", "cool"....sweet skid stops bro. Its the fixie faggots that pull up next to me thinking they could hang, but end up dropping off cause theyve never ridden more than 5 miles or have ever climbed hills.

I definitely am a typical fixie faggot. smokeyface You're exactly what the fuck is wrong with the cycling community. I never met a roadie that I liked. All of you cock suckers in your spandex and 26,000 fucking gears. I do ride my bike, I do climb hills, but when I ride it's usually under 30 miles a day so I don't think going clipless is necessary.
