I'd figured I'd start:

This is a Van Dessel CRB.

I still have no digital camera...

...so this is from Fuji's website. Mine is stock except for profile cowhorn bars, an old Ultegra front brake & Dia Comp lever. Gearing is 48x16 and I can't wait for spring so I can ride something besides the rollers!

I was going to keep it under wraps.

I didn't want show anybody until i have it built up perfectly.
My excitement is mounting though and I might just take a digital in the morining and unveil it as is.
This one is going to be a stunner. What do you guys think... should I wait a couple of weeks and unveil it in all it's glory or should i take the wraps off now? I'm torn.

Not really fixed

Old Fuji powder coated w/vinyl stickers for decals, it makes a great commuter and awesome rain/bad weather bike.

2003 Bianchi Eros frame. 53cm. Tensioned using a White Industries ENO eccentric rear hub. Built up two days ago, swapping parts off of the previously used aluminum frame; only one ride on it so far, but [email protected], the steel feels soooooo much better! 46x17. gets the majority of my road time now. the geared bike is sadly neglected.

Surly Crosscheck set up fixed/free. 38x15/20. mish-mash of e-bay, parts bin, veloswap, and good lbs deals. it gets the fenders, and rain/ugly ride/commute duty much of the time.

Older Tommasini

Frame and fork purchased from ebay. Other components mostly used. Flip-flop hub, set up as 44x17 fixed and 18 free. I hope to see some of these bikes at MB1's SS century in the spring!!!

Bianchis - Fixed SS and future track...

Bianchi
First is a 2000 Volpe with a Suzy flip-flop hub. 42/16 on both sides.
Second is a '99 Reparto Corse steel track frame that will be on the track this summer.
Have a third SS in the wings (Pinarello Radius) but it may not be fixed.

My old Koga Miyata Flyer. I bought it used for less than the price of the new hub and rode it until the gears wore out. That saddle, by the way, is the most uncomfortable saddle I have ever had. I have replaced it with a green flite but will soon mount a Brooks conquest... I love those springs!

That's a sweet ride Miss M has there. What gearing and wheels is she using?
