Diamant Singlespeed // Fixie // Campagnolo

We found this beautiful Diamant frame gathering dust in the corner of a shop and we decide to build it up in a nice Singlespeed/Fixie. We wanted to keep the classic look of the late 80's and we decided to go with as much chrome / polished parts as possible.

There was a lot of effort put into finding the right wheelset for this bike, in the end deciding to go with a pair of Mavic M 190FB clincher rims which fits perfectly with the chromed theme. They are really fantastic rims, very light at about 380gr each and decently strong. We lanced them to light Novatec hubs using Dt Swiss Comp. spokes to obtain a classy looking and dependable wheelset. The wheels came in at about 1650 grams which is really light for a track/flip-flop wheelset with 36 spokes. Moreover they just ride like a dream.

We also fitted the bicycle with a custom made chain fender. It gives a very distinctive look and greatly helps in keeping the pants away from the chain. It can easily be adjusted for different sized chainrings or removed if wished so.

Overall the bike its very compact, having a rather short wheelbase, and is stiffer then one would expect from a steel frame and boxed shape rims.
