New fixie project, or learning patience with backordered....scrublover

stuff. my backordered rear wheel is all i need now. one of the eccecntric White Industries ENO flip flop hubs is being built up by my fav lbs as soon as he gets it in.

2000 giant tcr team frame. smoothed/sanded and rattle- canned a patio furniture textured black krylon, and clearcoated. going for the black and silver look on everything, because all my other bikes are full of color. a change was in order. delogoed the titec stem, ritchey cranks with a sharpie.

no name carbon post and pedals off e-bay. front campy wheel, modolo lever, capmy mirage front brake, campy record headset off e-bay too. most of the rest is spare/old/closeout stuff.

the moustache bar is a van dessel version. narrower than a nitto, and flat. wanted a nitto, but they seem to be backordered everywhere, too. we'll see how this feels. feels good sitting on it in the apartment..... 15.5# as is. will likely be 16# when all is done. planning on 42x16, with an 18 on the free side.

just threw the rear off my geared roadie on here so i could play around with seat/bar setup. i hate waiting!!!!
