Check out this quote that’s over a hundred years old:
I still feel that varable gears are only for people over forty-five.
Isn’t it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer?
We are getting soft…As for me, give me a fixed gear!
–Henri Desgrange, L’Équipe article of 1902
When I picked up my bike at Mellow Velo on Saturday, David had replaced a few parts and the bike rode MUCH better. Could it have been the new 44T chainwheel, the Japanese 1/8″ chain and pedals or this?
I love how silent a fixie runs and how efficiently it transfers power to the wheels. With the new 44T chainwheel I made it up the hill to my Casa Monte Frio.

Nice editing with the music.
Nice! Now that’s what I’m talking about. I’d bet the skull air valve cap has something to do with the better ride.
