Odyssey "Svelte Comp" pedals, chain = whatever Lee slapped on there

42 / 16 (both fixed gear and freewheel)

Singlespeed / fixed gear flip-flip using Eno eccentric hub. This was my commuter bike for undergrad, grad school, grad school again, and then work, in three different cities. I'm really attached to this bike. Looks so different without gears, rack and milk crate.

Not sure what to do about the paint -- it's pretty trashed but I hate to paint over the cool green (I'll have to take a pic in the sun -- depth of color doesn't show here). Leather Brooks grips (bought on eBay -- seller says these are discarded prototypes for the Japanese market -- who knows?). Lee at East Side Pedal Pushers did the conversion (thanks Lee).
