For christmas in 2010 Odette got me a single speed bike from Recycled Cycles.
It’s a Centurion Elite (’80s vintage japanese frame) with a 42 / 16 drivetrain. Here’s a photo of the Elite RS from the 1984 Centurion catalogue:
Here’s some photos of my bike concentrating on the drivetrain. It looks like I’ve got the original brake levers – just a lot more rust spots. Note the pedals and saddle bag – these were taken after three or four short rides.
Read Sheldon Brown’s fixed gear page to understand the attraction.
First project is to figure out how to do track stands.
