Solid build. I would like to suggest you let that chain loosen up a bit, though. Have fun on it!

Thanks. I'm experimenting with chain tension right now, trying to find just the right amount. This amount seems to create some drag and resistance, so I'm going to loosen it up a bit and see how it feels.

unless you're racing track, you don't need more than about a half-inch vertical play in your chain. no experimentation neccessary.

How so? I'm thinking of getting a pair in the future.

Are the cables and levers kinda weird to install because of all the curves?

Havent ever posted all my rides here I dont think, finally got some pictures of the bitches.
Bare Knuckle, this thing gets the shit beat out of it, I love it so much.

Schwinn Super Le Tour 12.2, so far there are 15 dollars into this bike, but it's going to get the group thats on the ross this week and the ross will be fixed (and possibly sold cause it doesnt fit me :[)

Ross 292s setup with the shimano 105 gold arrow group. I dig the bike but its a little small for me.

anyways, yeah...thats it.

it was really hard to get the levers situated, but after that snafu, they were great. almost have to use campy/canecreek levers, because of the shape of the hoods.

did your bike come with a threadless headset? the site says it does, the pictures show a quill stem, and i haven't heard back from them yet. i'm thinking about just giving up and buying a white one, but only if it's threadless.

yeah, the bike came with a threadless headset...

Yeah it was just a fluke, I had looked for a bike to convert forever, and just stumbled upon this one. It was brand new, and turned out that the guy didn't want to ride fixed cause he had a big hill on the way to work (?).

It must be a new thing, along with the fsa cranks that they advertise now. Mine was apparently before that. When I painted it (took the whole thing apart as soon as I bought it, horrible initial build quality), I found that the fork was machined too small for the crown race! I also had to file down the track ends to make it so the axle could slide in and out.

Hopefully at least the fork issue is gone along with the new threadless headsets.

i like it. It's the first fixed i've owned, and its the highest geared one i've riden. I ride a friends, and his is around 2:1, and this is 3:1 so it's a little tougher to slow down, skid, hills..

But i really like it, and the hauling down of hills

well, if they still sell it with the threadless headset, i'm gonna buy it. if it's that ugly quill stem, no dice. i've already got a nice threadless fork waiting for a bike with black components. i wish they'd hurry up and email me back. when did you order yours?

Yes I do know the bike is too small. Sometime soon I will be building a new wheelset for it. It will be getting Superbe Pro 32h track hubs laced to DT Swiss RR 1.2 silver rims. I'm trying to find out how hard it is to remove the decals before I go with the rim though.

No, it's just a semi-bladed fork which looks kind of funky. It looked better with the steel fork that came with the bike but that weighs 3-4lbs while the full carbon EC90 is MUCH lighter.
