I don't have any pictures of mine but it is a Gary Fisher mountain bike frame that I built into a single speed with parts from ebay. I will take a picture later and post it up.

No no no no no.

Sprockets in a Motor-Cycle place, I have begged for this since 2005. So you take your silly pastime and fantastic exercise over to Off -Topic. We burn dead dinosours here!

Thanks! It is a rocketship compared to my old Cannondale. I just need winter to be over so I can start getting out again.

And yes, it gets cold here in Florida. 21 degrees this morning!

Ok here is a bad picture of mine in street mode. I am thinking about tearing it down again and painting the frame olive or khaki drab.

Also for the bike gurus - my forks have some play at the headtube, could that be from not enough spacers or something else? I think I have the right amount of spacers on it.

Since this picture was taken, the only difference is that my seat is about 3" higher now. "One of these days" I'm going to get clipless pedals; I don't like riding alongside 50 mph traffic in the rain when my feet slide all over the place.

It could be from not enough spacers, but most likely it is just a loose headset. What you'll need to do is loosen the two pinch bolts on the stem attaching it to the steer tube of the fork, they should be 5mm allen bolts on that Gary Fisher. Then, tighten the 5mm headset cap bolt on the top of the fork until the play is gone. You don't want this too tight, just tight enough to remove the play. To check for play, grab the front brake lever, applying the brakes and rock the bike front to back. Once the play is gone, straighten your handle bars and tighten the stem bolts.

I'm the head mechanic at a local bike shop. I have a ton of bikes but absolutely no pictures of any of them. haha.

Should I ask why your bicycle is on the roof of a building?

Posted this up in the other thread. I don't think that was appreciated .

'08 or '09 "Dawes" SST. 46/16 gearing, pretty good for all around riding. I absolutely LOVE riding fixed. Six months ago I didn't think I'd ever be able to go more than a week without driving the E30, now I only drive it to get home from college and when I am at home. I have four friends that ride fixed too and we go on rides pretty much everyday.

Here's some of me riding. This is with the old bars.

Trackstands are fun.

Messing up a friends picture.

My parents house is a berm house, it's less than a foot from the ground to the roof in the back. I figured it would be a neat place for a picture.

Mine's an Electra Townie; Ashley has a similar bike in pearl blue. I was helpless against the satin black finish and blacked-out hardware.

Ashley's:

The green one is my wife's Ross Barracuda. It's an early '70's model. I think it's a '73. It has a Shimano 333 internal hub 3-speed with twist grip shifter.

The black one is my '67 Schwinn Sting Ray Fastback. It's a '67 frame with '70-73 shifter, '70-up handlebars, and '72-up fenders. It has a Sturmey Archer internal 3-speed hub.
