Here's my latest fixed-wheel, haven't put too many miles on her yet, probably about 60 at a rough guess. It's a very smooth ride and fairly comfortable despite the geometry!

Stem: Cinelli
Handlebar: ITM drops cut-up to make 'bullhorns'
Bar Tape: Cinelli

Brake Levers/Brifters: Dia Compe bar end lever
Brake Calipers: Shimano 105
Brake Pads: Shimano 105

Chain: KMC 510s
Cranks: Campagnolo Veloce
Chainrings: Campagnolo Mirage 53T
Bottom Bracket: Shimano
Pedals: Can't remember off the top of my head!

Rims: Mavic Open Sport
Hubs: Ambrosio
Spokes: Stainless (not sure which make)
Tyres: Specialized 700x23
Tubes: Continental

Saddle: Brooks
Seatpost: Unsure of make, robbed from my Dad's Olmo

That is one huge gear, either you live somewhere without hills or you have thighs like tree trunks! :)

haha! it's currently 53/17 although I am thinking of opting for a 14T rear cog to give me a gear inch of 99.4!

I built it to blast up and down the Bristol-Bath cycle path, from where I live it's flat all the way apart from a small slope. Thighs are quite chunky I must agree!
